What a great restaurant! The food is excellent here! The stone grill is delicious! The meat is amazing. As dessert you should definitely try the chocolate fondue. We went already two times and are planning to go back tonight! Also really nice that the cook of the restaurant comes by to say hello.

Their signature shoulder of lamb dish is very good, love the mint jelly that went with it. Portion is for a very hungry person or can also be shared. Service is also pretty good and ambience of restaurant is nice. Definitely worth a visit, also would advise booking especially in peak season a few were turned away whilst we were... More

We made a reservation in advance of our trip which seemed necessary as every table was always taken. This is not a large place and its pretty popular. Plenty of wine and beer options for drinks and the food was quite good. Would definitely recommend getting a sense of the scale of the dishes from your server before ordering. As... More

We had leg of lamb here and it was excellent. Two of us shared it and there was still plenty left over.

You definitely go to this place for the experience. We both went for the hot stone steak, now I do have to say it was an amazing steak... however I cooked it on my hot stone... not sure how that goes down! I give myself a 5/5!! Presentation was very basic, ordered a beer and never actually received it. Service... More

Had the cheesy garlic bread entree, which was fantastic and perfectly garlicky. I decided on a steak option for my main, which I normally wouldn't do, but I was pleasantly surprised and pleased that I did. Cooked to my level of perfection, and served with a delicious sauce of mushroom and bacon, this steak was devoured in its entirety, which... More

Wanaka is a not really a small town in New Zealand but the restaurant selection is some what limited. This family run restaurant is truly a gourmet place and justifies the name. Brushetta and Garlic prawns were great appetizers. Particularly Brushetta is different form most other restaurants as it is flavorful, has lots of vegetables including capsicum and can serve...
