Description: A family friendly restaurant and bar located on the shore of Beautiful Lake Te Anau. We have it all, from an exciting kids menu to a whole range of styles of our signature dish - The good ol' steak! Whether you chose to sit in our fantastic beer garden and enjoy the sunshine while watching the sailing boats on the lake, or to join in the atmosphere while cheering for your team on the big screen, or to have a flutter on one of our 2 TAB machines, or dance the night away to one of our many live music acts - there's something for everyone, here at the Moose.... It's everybody's local!

We went here three or four times. Twice I got t-bone steak, both times excellent. Also the chicken schnitzel was very good. They made a nice irish coffee, not on the menu, for my fancy girlfriend. My buddy and me drank beer, which was cheap during happy hour and reasonable out side of that. Seating is good, tables and cool booths in the restaurant section.

Excellent! Thanks loads for a great review! Maybe next time you visit you should try it in the summer - The outside seating is awesome on a hot day, looking at the boaties on the lake!

See you then!!

Most New Zealanders eat at home! Good Restaurants in the south of the south island are not good and expensive. The Moose Bar and Restaurant is a Bar that serves Food. The specials are good. The Lamb shank was very good - not on the specials list.

This place has the best site of anywhere in Te Anau, right across the road from the lake and the i-site. Sadly it is so poor.
Inside it's a barn of a place. It looks as if it has been designed to accommodate as many standing drunk men as they could fit in. It's interior design is from a bygone (and not very good) age. The food menu was very 'same old-same old'.

It is also the towns betting shop, so you get betting types hanging around all afternoon, which I found a bit unsavoury. It also has plasma TV screens on all day.

This place could be fantastic, but needs a new owner and some money spending on it.
