Varied menu with food well prepared and served. The surrounding and decor are nothing special but the food and the serivce amply made up for it.

“More than a family restaurant.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 18, 2012

Your first impression is that you're entering a family restaurant, but in fact you're entering into fine dining, with a reasonable price.
We had the roast Lamb, that was to die for. Tender and cooked to perfection. Service is attentive, and polite offering and excellent menu and wine list. Don't worry though, as the bill won't shock you. The Pavola, well you will want two as this is one of the best in NZ. A must restaurant in Te Anau.

“Best dinner of our entire trip!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2012

Kepler's Restaurant was recommended by our motel manager, and although it was one of our more expensive dinners during our 2 week NZ trip, both my wife and I agreed it was THE BEST of our 14 dinners! We ordered the blue cod, lamb, and a side of roasted pumpkin and broccoli and everything was done to perfection. The atmosphere was bright and cheery, and the staff was excellent. Our compliments to the chef and wait staff and we would recommend Kepler’s without hesitation.

“Enjoyed the food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2012

Tried the cod (Yums!), grouper (average), and wine (came free, so I can't complain about it, do ask your hotel/motel if they have promotion cards for diners). Lake te anau is just round the corner for you to walk off the dinner.

“Nice but a little steep”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2012

Very friendly staff, accommodating chiefs happy to modify meals to meet consumers requests. However I found the meals over priced for the quality, they are nice basic meals but not worth the mains price especially when you then also have to pay for a side of salad/verges etc.
