Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Food was great, Mark was our waiter and he was so friendly. We dined here on the first night of our stay and was one of the best meals we had.

Fantastic dinner with a fantastic view. Our Sommelier/waitress Harriet was a friendly face with amazing food and wine recommendations. My wife and I opted for the full degustation, and the restaurant catered well to my wife's shellfish allergy, offering tasty alternatives. Definitely would recommend the...venison dish for the mains followed by the spices chocolate parfait for desert. If in doubt, just ask Harriet for a reco!More

Amazing views that are easily matched by the wonderful service and incredible food! Not a cheap night out, but certainly worth it for a special occasion. We went for early sitting to be able to appreciate the view of sunset over the Remarkables.More

The waiting and front of house staff were absolutely first class. The degustation was what we tried. It was about one dish too much food for our liking. My wife had the dark chocolate dessert and we both rated it 0/10. Too rich and it...actually hurt the back of her throat (perhaps bitterness). The chefs mystery dishes at the start of the degustation were very good. For a dessert I had the rhubarb choux which was excellent. Great atmosphere, location and views of the local scenary. If you one thing from this feedback, please change that chocolate dessert dish.More

Had an beautiful three course meal at Nest. All three courses were nothing short of delicious. The plating was that of high end restaurant with the flavours equal to the appearance. Oliver served us and was friendly and knowledgeable which added to the overall experience.More

My husband and I spent some lovely time together at Nest. We may have eaten as many as ten meals there during our recent stay at Kāmana Lakehouse. The food was truly excellent, the service was spectacular, and the atmosphere was also very pleasant whether...it was breakfast or dinner.More
