We stopped by on a recommendation and were not disappointed. The food was very good and the price was excellent. I had the fish and chips and it was perfect. Great beers on tap as well.

My favourite is fish chowder, hubby had venison pie. The service was quick and attentive but not hurried.

We ate here on both our nights in Te Anau as it was so good the first night. The service was very friendly with the lovely Jo. She made very helpful suggestions and nothing was too much trouble. The $15 meal choice was great - I had the best steak and pepper sauce I've ever had! (and I've had many!!)... More

We had the $10 breakfast of eggs and bacon and toast, a real bargain. Well cooked eggs (any style) and good back bacon. Quick and friendly service, could not be bettered at this price.

We ate here on our 2 nights in Te Anau. The service was first class and the meals were amazing. We found the $15 meals well worth the money and the starter meal of the ribs more than enough for a main meal. Definitely recommend this restaurant.

I had the lamb shank and hubby had the chicken breast. Mine was gorgeous and he declared his one of the best meals in NZ so far (been here 5 weeks). Service was prompt and friendly and prices very reasonable. People after us (around 7.30pm) were queuing for up to 45 minutes for tables. Always a good sign - but... More

Stayed at adjoining hotel. Cannot book so aware of people waiting for table food came fast and good menu.Friendly staff. No where to have a drink afterwards as bar area tables taken for eating only high chairs looking at a panel or at the bar not too relaxing. Reasonably priced.

This cafe offered free internet, unlike some other places, and we needed to check on something, so we sat outside in the warm sunshine with a wine and a beer. We then decided to dine here and were not disappointed. I have only recently been introduced to Butter Chicken and Bailiez's version did not disappoint. Served with rice and naan... More

Stopped for lunch on a rainy day in Te Anau. Very pleasantly surprised when we came in the outside appearance doesn't reflect the interior. Super cosy and the burgers we ordered were great ! Vegetarian option and gluten free as well. To top it off the staff were super friendly as well.

We stayed at the Distinction Luxmore Hotel where the restaurant was located just outside. We ate dinner and breakfast here because it was very nice for options and service. The food was good and resonable.
