Lovely view here, our waiter was training (and he reminded us this many times)...but he did a good job. 2 of us ordered Wagyu steak and were disappointed. In the past, it's been melt in your mouth beef and when you are paying $95, you have high expectations. It was a good steak but not great and made us question whether it was genuine Wagyu. Wine was very good (Recommended by sommelier). Pricey spot.

True South offers a fine dine experience that showcases local ingredients and regional wines. Be sure to get the chef's tasting menu with wine pairings. The view is also stunning. True South is a must try for foodies!

Were to eat when you have guests in town that travel all over the world?? We chose The Rees as this is a smaller dining room, not noisy and the food was amazing. Well done Barry for the amazing food! we had a great night and all left feeling very spoilt. Thanks!

Food choices were very mediocre and it was very expensive. We opted to grab some muffins and steamed buns in town versus going back.

We are not sure why the restaurant has seen so many negative reviews of late. We like good food and know what is well cooked as we regularly eat out in good restaurants.
We had a good table - the wine was superb and the staff attentive. For a degustation menu we expected something different hence the score. What we received was nice food from a selection of dishes on the menu. All tasted good but not exceptional. Based on NZ prices - this was not overly expensive
