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.

It's such a vibe and great pricing - They really take into consideration all your dietary needs - giving individual plates to those that fall into different allergy / preference categories - which is really wonderful. Yummy interesting recipes - unusual and creative food ideas - I love the freedom and obvious passion and interest in providing new and interesting ways to put flavours together. Great Work - we'll be back.!

A really appealing menu and each of our dishes was delicious, particularly the sublime brick chicken. The ultimate take on a roast chook.

Fabulous all round. I had been before but forgotten how fantastic Mutton Bird is. We had the chefs choice so we didn't have to think, we could engage with our friends and be delighted by each new treat coming out from the kitchen. The flavours, the textures, the variation, the uniqueness of the dishes were all outstanding. Sensational! There was a lot happening but the chefs were calm and enjoying themselves, the atmosphere was perfect and the waiting crew were gorgeous and also enjoyed seeing the joy coming from the tables. Amazing!

We dined at Muttonbird to celebrate a wedding anniversary. We chose the "Trust the Chef" option and we both thoroughly enjoyed every dish of which there were 8 or 9. I would highly recommend and will definitely be coming back. We also thought it was great value for money and the service team did a great job.

Mutton bird came highly recommended and it didn’t disappoint. We decided to choose off the menu rather than trust the chef and our wait staff were helpful in explaining portion sizes and recommended quantities. The food was interesting and delicious. Loved the lamb which was melt in your mouth. Our party of 5 were all impressed and we rate Mutton Bird highly.

Outstanding food and service. We were recommended to try Muttonbird while in Wanaka and if we had more time we would have definitely come back again to dine! The food was so beautifully cooked and presented. We would highly recommend the tasting menu, every dish was so tasty. Friendly staff and a lovely vibe. Will definitely be coming back next time you're in Wanaka. Yum!

We were recommend this restaurant by friends and it did not disappoint! We had the Muttonbird Mix tasting menu and every dish was cooked to absolute perfection. The best meal we've had in so long! The fish and lamb dishes were a standout. A must for anyone visiting Wanaka. We will definitely be back the next time we are here!

Absolutely the best crudo I’ve ever eaten. It’s spectacular. I had it for entrée and main. That’s how good it is. Everything else is amazing too but the Crudo…….

My fiancee and I had the MuttonBird Mix and it was one of the best meal we had during our South NZ round trip. Would definitely recommend to friends who visit Wanaka.

Great evening - delicious food (Chef’s choice) and NZ wines to accompany. Highly recommend. Only suggestion I would make - I am gluten intolerant and there was no alternative for me with some of the side dishes. The sign of a really great restaurant is having delicious homemade GF bread/rolls on the menu.

Exquisitely good food. Medium size venue, not too loud. Friendly staff. Had the chicken liver pâté, the halloumi (very nice texture and charcoal grilled), the tuna ( really good) and Brussels sprouts (we had to ask the chef how he made the sauce because it was so good)

Fabulous food! We opted for the chefs choice (Muttonbird Mix) at $80 ()40) a head for 3+ courses. All were delicious and this option meant I tried dishes that I would never have chosen but were fabulous! You have no idea what dishes you’re going to get (although they do ask for dietary requirements ahead of serving). The lamb was the highlight - cooked for 12 hours and soft and unctuous. Served with roast potatoes, salad and bread.
