“Good service, good food”
Reviewed February 24, 2014

Good food and good service even though restaurant was very busy. We sat inside due to rain but it looked like there would be a great view from the outside seating area!

“Fab food but 90 minutes to wait”
Reviewed February 16, 2014

A really interesting menu, great option if in Tekapo, but be prepared for a long wait (we had 90 minutes between ordering and service). The hunks of raw meat on hot stones that cook in front of you are wonderful.

“Lovely fillet steak”
Reviewed February 13, 2014

Order the fillet steak that you cook yourself, and you won't be disappointed. Try to get a table near the windows overlooking the lake. The staff are lovely, very helpful and informative. Can't recommend highly enough.

“Fabulous”
Reviewed February 10, 2014

We were on a trip with our family from all over NZ & Australia - about a dozen of us, plus 4 small children stopped here for lunch one day & we very impressed. It was a beautiful sunny day, so we set up outside - some of us on a BBQ table, and others in the sun just on the grass. What a view!! And a lovely relaxed atmosphere. The service was great & very accommodating for such a large group. The food was great too - a really good selection. I'd highly recommend the kumara fries too!!
