We turned up here on Valentine's day after Reflections had messed up our booking and we did not regret it. The restaurant was already busy at 7pm and the food, service and location were great. Definitley try the meat cooked on a hot stone at your table, and the sparkling red Pinot Noir too.

Book a window table - great view of the lake. Then enjoy the quality food - the stonegrills are really neat. The winelist is also good. Prices were what you would expect for good food in a good restaurant. Not cheap but certainly not too expensive.
This is our first choice restaurant for when we stay in Tekapo.

Came in for dinner early before the rush and glad we did as it got very busy.
Sat outdoors which was great and we both had the hot stone meals.
Food although cooked by ourselves was very tasty with very good dipping sauces and an enjoyable night out.
Servers are all international students and were a treat to interact with

Part of the reason we went to Lake Tekapo again was to eat at this place, but never again!
We booked our table at 2pm for 8pm and when we were ready to order, we were told that there wouldn't be any stones available for hours!
We promptly left and will never return. Couldn't get in anywhere else as they were fully booked so had to settle for fish & chips

This was our first experience with stone grill cooking and it did not disappoint. We both had steaks and they were beautiful cuts of meat. We didn't get much of a view as a large portion of the restaurant is back from the windows. It was a more expensive meal, but worth it.
