First visit to this restaurant and could not fault it. Service and food was excellent. Rib Eye and lamb Salad were perfect. A definite must if in the area.

Went for a meal with my husband and father in law. Although it took the staff a little while to take our order the food was tasty, the staff were friendly and the atmosphere was nice. We enjoyed it and would recommend.

Recommended by our Air BnB host we were not disappointed. Enjoyed our first NZ mussels and also the calamari. The kids thoroughly enjoyed their BBQ beef burgers.

We arrived in Te Anau, New Zealand on day #30 of our 6 month, 6 continent, third Trip Around the World. On our fourth day we ate at the Fat Duck. Had an average meal there. Steak was OK. Busy restaurant with outside seating.

We had the duck liver pate, pork belly and venison - food was delicious and cooked to a high standard, with larger servings. I would book for dinner. Service and ambience were great. Would dine again!

I am outraged by the terrible service at the fat duck. I arrived with my family, starving after a long day out. A young blonde female server appeared with a grimace and did not greet us. We approached her and she barely looked at us....More
