Chose this restaurant because it had a recommendations on Trip Advisor. Plenty of variety on the menu at reasonable prices. Service was good and the food lived up to expectations.

Decided to go to Whatever after walking around Hamner and looking at the restaurants menu boards. We were not disappointed. Food was delicious, fast friendly service. Look forward to going back!!!

“Pub style dining”
Reviewed November 28, 2013 via mobile

We had dinner at Whatever with our 2 children. Meals were average. Had some garlic bread to start with that had hardly any butter or garlic then my husband had a beef goulash that was very sweet, I tried it and didn't like it. He ate it cause he was so hungry after a long day at the pools. I had the seafood chowder and it wasn't anything special. The kids meals were better than ours. We did finish off with a nice berry brownie dessert.... That was definitely the highlight. Staff were friendly.

“Good food pub style”
Reviewed November 27, 2013

The food was nice but definitely more pub style than fine dining though! For example with the chicken you get 2 big bland pieces of roast pumpkin and mixed veges on the plate with it.

“Last minute decision”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

We were in Hanmer and were deciding if we should order in or eat out. At 8pm we decided to walk into the township and see what we could find. It was pouring with rain so we called into WhatEver as it was the first restaurant and the town was fairly quiet (Monday night after ChCh show weekend). We asked for a table for 7 and were welcomed and accommodated straight away. The waiter was knowledgeable about the wines available and the meals were faultless.
I has the Salmon on a bed of rice with local vegetables which were cooked just right. The main dish was $32, my partner had the venison which was about $35.
Our group were rather noisy and one of the female waitresses did not look very impressed but we were the only people left in the restaurant at that stage.
$2 was added to our bill to help Dine Aid which could be withdrawn if we chose.
