Fantastic food and absolutely stunning location! And the food is organic! What a surprise in Mt Cook! There is also an open fire and the cafe has such a warm and cozy feeling. Absolutely loved it! Highly recommend.

We had one night in Mt Cook and chose to eat here based on the menu that we'd seen online. Great decision! Staff were welcoming, views were spectacular and the food was delicious. Really appreciate the commitment to using the best quality, locally sourced produce. This place really feels like it has some soul which can be a little lacking in some other Mt Cook establishments. Like some other reviewers, I would have loved this place as an alternative breakfast option (before 10am!).

Had dinner there this evening and their all meat pizza was wonderful. Add a bottle of their local Cabernet/merlot house wine and you have a perfect evening. Mt. Cook was in hiding tonight but the rest of the views were spectacular, and the background music was a perfect blend of 1960's - 70's music. Could not have picked a better place for the evening.
