This place has a fairly extensive menu so should have something for everyone here. The hot pot was great for a cold night, as was the beef schnitzel. Very nice desserts. The savoury mince on toast for breakfast was a delicious blast from the past!

The food here was very well prepared, came out promptly and the quality was of good standard. Our visit here was spoiled by other guest's kids running around the restaurant which resulted in a collision with our table. Nothing was said by either the restaurant or the parents and allowed it to continue. Bad form!

While driving from Queenstown on my way to the Milford Sound on a very cold snowy October morning, I was directed to the Fat Duck by the lady in the petrol station and I had the most exquisite breakfast in many years... Perhaps ever. Having traveled most of the world. I am airline crew and I have been flying for 25 years, this is a BIG compliment.
Not only breakfast was incredible, but New Zealand charm made it also unforgettable.
We returned the following day all the way from Queenstown, it wasn't on our plans, we changed them entirely in order to return to Te Anau's Fat Duck, and have breakfast before heading for the Kepler Track.

Not much happening in Te Anau town centre during the winter but tourist information centre recommended the Fat Duck. We had a lamb burger and a chicken burger with fries and salad. Friendly service and relaxed atmosphere. Finished off with pear and blueberry crumble and icecream sundae. Great presentation and taste of all food.

I`ve been lucky to have visited The Fat Duck twice this week for two separate occasions, and have really enjoyed the atmosphere, food and service I`ve experienced. The Fat Duck has a wonderful way of catering to the needs of all patrons, highlighted with the combination of a lovely restaurant, bar, and fireside lounge.

The smiles, real conversation and genuine warmth provided by all staff was complimented by the delivery of lovely meals, and today some of the nicest hot chocolate ever!!

If you`re looking for a lovely place to relax, somewhere spacious but comforting, The Fat Duck is a perfect spot. You`ll enjoy the intimacy of a well decorated venue, great big views, and gentle presence of staff that are genuinely happy people.

Highly recommended, and excited to visit again. Be sure to make this one place to visit during your stay in Te Anau!!
