If you like creamy mild coffee rather than strong watery, you'll love what they serve here! The view and space isn't too bad either, plenty of seats inside and out.

As hotel guests we wanted to book in for dinner, (there is no options in easy walking distance from the hotel and didnt want to risk loosing our park, as not many parks big enough onsite for our 7meter camper). Initially we were told nothing until after 8pm (they had a wedding and 2x parties of 24 (tour groups booked),... More

This is a regular dinner spot on our visits to Wanaka, unfortunately this will be the last. The restaurant has been painted recently and doesn't have the same atmosphere. The food was cold, even after sending back . And average quality for the price, which was expensive ... the groups of tour buses seem to be the new market ..... More

We went to this restaurant on our first night in Wanaka. It is part of the Edgewater hotel and it is located pretty much as described. Probably a better experience in the day time so if you want to enjoy the lake and views book for lunch. Took off a point as one of our meals was not cooked to... More

We stopped in after a bike ride and bought scones and coffee. Was delicious. I don't know if it was because it was early but we were on folks there. Really nice setting - either sitting inside or outside. One warning - scones as baked fresh and take 20 minutes to prepare.

We booked in for Xmas Day dinner... recommend booking as was full. Food was beautifully presented and each course was not too massive so didn't come out feeling bloated. Staff were very attentive and gave time between courses to digest. Really good dining experience.

We ate there and the Service and the food were not worth what we paid. They served us the wine when we were already eating the entrees and the main meals were not as good and big as their price were. We ordered duck and it was sticky and the vegetables acompaining the salmon were ridiculous. When we went to... More

We had a fabulous evening after a long drive from Christchurch and then a busy afternoon working. Predinner drinks were served by a friendly and attentive bar host.

Scones, jam & cream and a coffee in the most picturesque location in the world. You're missing out (even if you don't 'really like scones') you should try them. You'll find it hard not to enjoy the scenery and the 20 minutes while they custom bake your scones will zip by over a coffee - I assure you. Definitely recommend... More
