“Overrated here on tripadvisor”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2013 via mobile

We had dinner here based on reviews I'd read here.
if you're used to the quality and price derived from the competition of city food you'll be disappointed. We had 3 different meals at the table and each had the same rice and potato addition to the main feature.

Quite expensive considering.

Food was OK but not worth the price or reputation.

We went here before my daughter's wedding and we loved the atmosphere and the cheerful staff. Very nice meal too.

“X-mas eve dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013

We had our X-mas dinner at the Kepler's and we enjoyed it a lot. Good food, friendly atmosphere, fast service (almost too fast). And we had a nice chat with the owners. So we can recommend this place when you want a little more exclusive feel without the accompanying price tag.

“we expected more...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2013

After reading some recommendations on tripadvisor we went here for dinner. The staff was very friendly, but the food was disappointing. We had seafood chowder as a starter, which was average. For mains we chose blue cod and mixed seafood plate and everything had a lack of taste. We had way better fish in other places in New Zealand.

“New Zealand lamb done superbly!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2013

Although we had lamb often during our recent trip to New Zealand, never was it prepared and served as well as at Kepler's. Our B&B hosts recommended this restaurant to us, and we loved the meal and the ambiance. If you have just one night in Te Anau and/or one time to enjoy the local lamb, be sure to get to Kepler's. You will not be disappointed!
