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.

Great restaurant for dinner. Enjoyed our meals. Great, attentive service. Can get a little warm and loud in the small seating area depending upon what time of the day/day of the week you book. Overall definitely recommend Tititea for a very good quality food experience...in Wanaka. Best to book in advance. Note: The restaurant is up a flight of stairs.More

The absolute best lamb we have ever had! We split the lamb shoulder and still have enough for another meal. Loved the potatoes cooked in duck fat and carrots.

Have just returned from the most amazing evening at Tititea Steak House. The meal (Beef Fillet Steak)was the best I’ve had, cooked to perfection as was the rest of the meal. The service was beyond reproach, all staff taking a genuine interest in how the...meal was and went out of their way to ensure we had a superb evening. Highly recommended to all, Thank you.More

Had a lovely relaxed dinner at Tititea; the service staff were all friendly & helpful. The tartare was well presented and tasty meat. Steaks for mains were good size, and cooked to request. Delicious duck fat potatoes too. Great spot for a special dinner occasion

The meals were nice enough, nothing special. The furniture is tired looking. The staff were nice. Won’t go back. Had much nicer food at The Spice House, The Lake Bar, Amigos this week. Only took a photo of the Venison. Also had the Cod, steak...and Calamari.More

Went for dinner with 3 work colleagues, the initial service was very good, cosy atmosphere. We all ordered the eye fillet and sides for the table (seasonal greens, Brussell sprouts, fries and yams). All the sides were cooked well and very tasty. All of our...steaks were barely warm, it seems they had been left to rest for quite some time. We asked for all to be cooked medium rare, they were all undercooked - one especially was blue-rare in the middle. When they came to clear our plates, I informed the server that the steak was underdone so much so that it was less than half eaten. She said she would speak to the chef. No apology was given, we weren't offered a discount or for the steak to be cooked more. Upon paying we asked politely if there could be a wee discount given seeing as the steak could not be eaten and the woman on the till was quite rude stating we should have told the chef to recook it for us. Again, no apology. This was quite disappointing - to spend $45 on just a steak, at a steakhouse, i would have assumed it would be cooked correctly to begin with, an apology given and them to try rectifying the issue. Poor service and don't appreciate the rude staff member at the till, especially when we were being polite and letting you know the issue so future customers would have the best visit.More

Really disappointing food and service. The serloin was dry and chewy. The meat was clearly not the best quality and it was not cooked well. I would expect this type of steak in a pub, but not a specialist steak house. The fat on the...serloin was all completely dry. The eye fillet was cols by the time it was served. The staff kept interrupting the conversation around the table and clearly wanted to clear the table asap. To add insult to injury this place charges you $50 per head if you book a table and can not make it in time. So overall the place is overhyped and overpriced. I will not be back.More

We walked in without a booking and luckily snagged the last available table. The staff were really attentive and helpful. The food was delicious. I had the venison and greens, hubby had the blue cod and blue cheese and walnut salad followed by 2 equally...yummy desserts. It was our last night in Wanaka and the best dining spot for sure. Check it out and be delighted!More

The worst restaurant I’ve ever been to. For a steak house you would expect to receive your food quite quickly upon order but NOOOO, I swear these guys are cooking with 1 pan which took an hour and a half to serve 2 people in...our table. The food was so average for its price but the wait made it terrible. To put a cherry on top of this embarrassing restaurant, they charge a $3 fee to use any card payments included in the receipt. A fee for what? It’s New Zealand, not once I’ve encountered a bad restaurant like this which deserves my first review on my life.More

It really puzzles me how people like yourself get satisfaction in attempting to ruin someones reputation by providing many mistruths and having unrealistic expectations and then taking to review sites to tell everyone also without having any balls to talk to staff about any issues...More

We arrived in Wanaka with our teenage children and decided that after many days of travel, they could eat a pizza and we would have a nice meal together. This did not disappoint. Despite them being one waiter down, the three waiters were delightful, patient,...attentive and this was a full restaurant. The food was delicious. We started off with a prawn entree to share (OMG, so yummy). My only criticism was there were only 4 prawns. My husband had steak and I had the lamb on minted pea puree and herb roasted carrots. We also did duck roasted potatoes and cauliflower gratin. I had the Chard Pinot Noir which was gorgeous and hubby a sauv. I skipped dessert but had a taste of my husbands which was a chocolate mouse with orange candied peel.... The restaurqnt was not too noisy, and meals were quick to come. It cost about $NZD 300 which I think seems pretty reasonable. Was worth it.More
