We had lamb shanks and lamb rump for main, then banoffie pie and fig & date pudding for dessert, after heart warming mulled wine on a cold winter day.

The meat was perfectly cooked & beautifuly presented, and dessert was pure joy. Staff were friendly and very helpful.

We thought it was one of the best dining experiences in a long time, and certainly the best in this trip.
Definitely coming back again!!

We went to reflections as Mackenzie's was fully booked, we're glad it was. The service was friendly and the food was lovely. As others have said he menu is a little limited but as we were only dining on one night that was no issue. The waitress was very helpful, my wife has a pepper allergy and they were happy to tailor the meal to suit.

The decor is a little dated, but clean. The atmosphere was great and to top it all they let us stay and watch the rugby!

Highly recommended.

Fast service with kids, complete with toys and colouring books & pencils etc.

Best green tipped muscle dish with delicious creamy sauce was great value and very filling.

Venison was very tender, although could have had a few veges for the price.

Kids meals were deep fried and a bit underwhelming.

Free wifi was great.

We ate dinner at this comfortable restaurant a couple of times while in Tekapo, and enjoyed both meals. The food is well priced and the staff when we were there were lovely - helpful and friendly but not pushy. My only criticism would be that the menu is slightly limited - had we eaten there a third night, it would have been difficult to find something different to eat. This might be a personal issue, though - we tend to eat little red meat, so that limited our options somewhat. I do feel that a few more vegetarian and other less meat-reliant options would be welcome. I'd certainly recommend a visit, though.
