Another great evening at this restaurant. The wild game is always a good thing to go for on the menu. The quality of the main ingredient speaks for itself. The hare was particularly good as both a main and entree. Great wine list to go with it. There was liveusic on Saturday night which made it even nicer.

The manager of the B&B we were staying at told us to eat here. Luckily I was able to get a table that evening. It was late but worth it. From the exterior, the place is not impressive or look very large but I was surprised on both. It spreads through a series of rooms and offers both very intimate... More

This is a quaint quirky restaurant with fabulous food..staff and embience. The best kids menu I have ever come across. It contained all food types even down to a bottle of milk. Try the wine tasting platter as well. Very unique. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone coming to Te Anau

Never, anywhere have I had better servers keeping the good wine flowing. But why oh why does an expensive restaurant need a full-blast overhead light over each table? To sell more sunglasses maybe? I should have ordered the venison or the rabbit, like the LonelyPlanet guys suggested. Instead, I ordered fish of the day - big mistake unless you're hungry... More

Very welcoming and attentive staff. We had the venison, which was superbly prepared and presented. Red wine choice was difficult to decide, but this restaurant comes to the rescue with a sample paddle of three reds. Probably best to book and a visit is highly recommended.

Attended this with family the night before running the Routeburn Classic race. Firstly the Hare croquettes should be compulsory eating for anyone passing through Te Anau, big flavours, generous sized portion, a great start. Around the table we had the venison, the vegetarian pastry option and the pulled pork gnocchi- all very happy. The style is very country, you would... More

My hare croquettes arrived looking like they had been left in a deep fried situation. Nothing like described. However, our other entree was devine. So we shared. Our Mains, in particular my Venison was to die for....cooked to perfection. The staff kindly acknowledged, the Un-eaten entree and adjusted the account without us asking. Sometimes people make mistakes....so I suggest if... More

Our table wasn't quite ready when we arrived so we hung out on the porch with a glass of wine and watched the locals. We were seated in a few minutes, and our waitress helped us make good choices. I had a paua (abalone) pasta in a yummy sauce to start and my husband had a salad.I had venison and... More
