“Favourite restaurant in New Zealand!”
Reviewed August 2, 2012 via mobile

Found this little gem in Te Anau after a day out at Milford Sound. Amazing atmosphere and lovely staff make it very easy to unwind. Started the night off with a delicious black beer from invercargil and had the hare and smoked salmon for mains. They were both so delicious with the hare bein the standout on a delicious bed of risotto. Finished the night with a port and a trio I delicious ice creams and pottering around the cosy restaurant inspecting all the little odds and ends that make this place so special. A definite must visit if you are spending a night in Te Anau!

“Quirky setting with fab food”
Reviewed July 24, 2012

Redcliffe got its name from a former sheep station i believe so its staying true to its rural roots by serving up excellent lamb, venison & manuka flavoured salmon.

We sampled the venison, wedges, salmon, platter, soup, green salad on the two seperate occassions we visited. Excellent presentation of d dishes. Only problem was the green salad, the aioli dressing was way too much & it wasnt touched after the first mouthful but was still paid for.

Lovely atmosphere, staff are well informed, central location. Even though it's off season n NZ at the mo, a detour to the redcliffe restaurant Te Anau is well worth it. Thumbs up for the chefs!!

“Best Hare ever!!”
Reviewed July 4, 2012

Our hostess from our B and B (as well as our travel agent) recommended Redcliff and we are so glad they did. We vacationed in NZ mid-May so it was the tail end of the travel season (which is a great way to holiday through NZ). No reservations were required!
We enjoyed incredible food - the hare and risotto were to die for. There was a singer/guitarist performing in the front of the restaurant (a lovely addition to the ambiance). The food was presented beautifully - we enjoyed a cozy atmosphere and a delightful waitress.

“A++++”
Reviewed June 27, 2012

We recently went here for a special dinner. Although it is a touch expensive it was well worth it! The food is cooked to perfection and the service is great overall we couldn't fault it. You have got to try the Hare!
