“Incredibly disapointed by unfriendly waitstaff who treated our party rudely. Especially the Employee who looks like Kingkong wit”
Reviewed October 26, 2011

The most unfriendly employee, I have been to restaurants around the world, I thought Kiwi's are the friendliest western people, but not at this place! Just find other restaurant, you don't want even eat the best steak and be stared at all the time by that Kingkong!

“Good food, great lake views.”
Reviewed August 13, 2011

Usual stone grill fare, which is great if you like it, which I do! Friendly service and warm welcoming restaurant with great views of the lake. Definitely go back when next in Tekapo.

“Very good restaurant, great value for Aussie travelers!”
Reviewed August 13, 2011

We ate here after going for a drink the previous night and liking what we saw on the menu.

We were most impressed with the food, ambience, service and price! The pork belly was to die for and big enough to feed 2! The stonegrill was delicious as was dessert. Service was great and they were very attentive to our children. As far as value, we thought it was excellent particularly when converted to Aussie dollars.

Not sure what previous reviewers were looking for but as regular diners working in the industry we were impressed! We'll be back next year!
