We had hoped to have an average pub meal but overall was disappointed- sitting outside was pleasant- but table was sticky and grubby. Meals were satisfactory- nothing special. Would I go back? No.

Big restaurant with great views BUT would not go here again. The staff were appalling and so rude, we waiting half hour before we could even order our meals and then another 45 mins to receive the food. The children's meals didn't even come out...More

Decent and generous food, no fuss or fancy meals, just good old pub style meals. Service was friendly and speedy, the food very quick to be sent out. Not too pricy either. Good for families, big groups and a quick drink.

Pretty big bar just on the lake front so great to sit outside and enjoy a beer. Didn't eat but the food looked decent. Inside there's little atmosphere though.

Typical watering hole without atmosphere but ok to enjoy a beer in the front garden after a day hiking

I had the battered fish and it was nice, service was friendly. Was a good pub meal, beautiful views, worth going there for the view.

Called in for a couple of drinks after our cruise. Friendly bar staff, interesting decor. Menu looked nice. Cleanliness of the floor around the edge of the bar left a bit to be desired, but was the only thing that was negative.

This chain pub has prime position opposite the lakefront but unfortunately the large outdoor area is exposed to harsh sun for most of the day. The interior is better than the average bar, particularly because it looks out to the lake. Staff are good too....More

Had a crappy day so went out for a decent meal, and wasn't disappointed here. Food was good and the view is great! Let downs were the lackluster wine selection and no free wifi.

A family friendly restaurant and bar located on the shore of Beautiful Lake Te Anau. We have it all, from an exciting kids menu to a whole range of styles of our signature dish - The good ol' steak! Whether you chose to sit in our fantastic beer garden and enjoy the sunshine while watching the sailing boats on the lake, or to join in the atmosphere while cheering for your team on the big screen, or to have a flutter on one of our 2 TAB machines, or dance the night away to one of our many live music acts - there's something for everyone, here at the Moose.... It's everybody's local!
