Very cosy restaurant, nice French waiter. Very nice food...although my friends have complained that they ate too much !:) (they went for two lamb shanks each...apparently they were to good not too finish)

“Better than I had expected.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2013

After our $14 beer experience downstairs the night before I was reluctant to try this place but choices in Ohakune are few. I am happy to say the food was very good and the service was excellent. All the wait staff worked together and helped each other out, a rare thing these days. Fantastic room gives you a real ski lodge feel. Second best restaurant in town behind The Bearing Point.

Such a cool atmosphere. Have been going there for twenty years, and it's still just as fun, and the food has just gotten better!

“Set Menu for 40 People”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2013

We selected a set menu in conjunction with the chef/restaurant staff and pre-ordered so that after a day's skiing a large group like ours could sit down and have a meal together. The service was fantastic, entrees, mains and desserts were all delivered together and the food was great. They even did a kids menu for those of us with children.
