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.

Spectacular - food, wine and service - absolutely faultless. We had the “feed me” option and each dish was beyond reproach. Very friendly and attentive staff as well made for a memorable dinner.

All the dishes are very well made and crafted. Fantastic experience. Walked in at 5:30 and they can offer me a table outdoor. The weather is nice but it’s getting cold at at late night. Food presentation, ingredients, freshness, and attentive waitress. Highly recommended.

We are currently on holiday in NZ and this meal is perhaps the best we have eaten since arriving nearly 3 weeks ago, simply superb. Many thanks to Lily for the excellent service she provided.

Had dinner here with another couple and it was delicious and fun. We ordered several items and shared. Everything was delicious! It's just a casual place with great food and friendly service! We met Matt L from the Today show.

This restaurant was a recommendation for us by someone we met by chance whilst travelling in NZ. The reviews looked very appealing, and we managed to reserve the last table available for the evening. All staff were friendly and efficient. Alongside the standard a la...carte menu there was the "let us feed you" menu, which is a selection of unknown dishes to share for 2 people. It's the first time we had encountered this, so we're really excited to try this concept as we are both foodies and aren't picky eaters, liking most things. In total, 5 dishes, a myriad of different flavours and textures. Standout dishes for us were the mushrooms served with fried tofu and mirin/miso broth and the smoked mixed tomatoes with chilli sorbet. Perhaps least favoured were the confit duckleg and the chocolate creme brulee. Lovely to try the "surprise menu". Drinks were definitely on the pricey side.More

too many strong flavours competing. Restaurant selling itself as hi-end, but delivering an average experience. Staff were kind but not experienced enough

We were sold this as fine dining but isn’t, simply put. At least one of the starters was way over salted, the main was oily and the desserts, sold as deconstructed, needed to be better constructed.. overall, the food was disappointing, too many flavours fighting...for attention and the central element of the dish often ended up being lost. This is a shame as the place was very lively and is clearly well received locally on a Tuesday evening. Overall, I would say, should do better…More

This is a great restaurant for sharing plates. All were perfectly presented and delicious. This is understandably a very difficult place to get in. Enjoy but reserve in advance

The food was exceptional. We had 6 starters, 1 main, and 2 sides between the four of us, and every single dish was delicious. They also had an impressive selection of vegetarian options, which our vegetarian party member greatly appreciated. Excellent service. Excellent everything. Make...a booking as early as you can... like right now... because this place is not to be missed!More

Dinner here is a delight. A little off of the main street in Wanaka but well worth the extra walk. A tapas-fusion menu that offer a little taste of everything for all kinds of eaters.
