“Excellent meals”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2013

We had 2 excellent meals in this family restaurant. We were very impressed with both the quality of the food and the professionalism of the service. The restaurant specialises in seafood and the 3 fish dishes that my husband and I had were delicious. On one evening my husband also had a lamb dish, which was also delicious. For dessert I had filled pancakes. I wish I knew a restaurant in the UK that made them so well. We were in Te Anau at the week-end when it is difficult to just walk in, so we recommend advance booking. On our first night in Te Anau we just booked soon after we arrived in the town.

“Excellent and affordable food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2013

Before our 4 day hike we went to this restaurant and ate lamb and mussles (both delicious, especially the lamb is a recommendation). On our trip (especially on the 4th day) we were already talking the whole time about the meal there and that we want to go there again when we arrive in Te Anau. It was equally delicious the second time (two fish dishes).

“Great Local Cuisine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2013 via mobile

Keplers was recommended by a local B&B and it lived up to it's expectation. Very good menus with an emphasis on Kiwi fare and all of our meals were of excellent quality with very attentive and quick service also. Perhaps a little pricey but overall a very good eating experience.

“Best food yet!!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2013

We have been in NZ for 5 weeks now and visited Te Anau for 3 days. We went to Keplers Restaurant on our first night and had a lovely meal. We enjoyed it so much that we went back the following 2 nights. The restaurant is very clean. Staff are excellent, very helpful and will help with food choices if needed. Portions are more than adequate and beautifully presented. Everything is freshly cooked and the food arrives hot. Really good value for money. Best food we have had in NZ. Well done Chef!!!!!!!

“Coped with a big group really well.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2013 via mobile

Late notice group of 12 of us were treated really well. Southern hospitality at it's best. Food was really tasty and the atmosphere was friendly and welcoming. The chef came to say hello and the free glass of wine with dinner was very welcome. Had a great night.
