Only problem was i ordered a superfood salad with salmon, and it came out as a few tiny slices of smoked salmon on the side which was not indicated by menu or price...i expected... More

Fabulous eggs benedict and parsnip soup. Very good coffee. We ate lunch and had takeaway coffee. Avoid the pre-made rolls. Nice roomy dining room with plenty of tables looking out on the lake. Some outdoor dining. Friendly staff.

Reasonable Menu, reasonable view but the tables and windows are not set to maximise them. Free Wi-Fi but had to hunt for a code. Food was good, bacon, eggs, black pudding, etc nothing outstanding about the service, looked interesting from the road.

Went in to order some food, they hadn't changed the menu and we arrived 15 minutes after the menu had change. Was unable to order a salad that I wanted so my partner got something from the menu. After sitting down and waiting for his food. Someone that ordered after us was able to get a salad, seen this while... More

A good location to eat with views over Lake Tekapo. We were drawn in by an interesting and varied menu but in truth the food did not quite meet with expectations. It was OK but did not reach our expectations

Coffee, tea and eggs all done to perfection! It's a great start to the day if you decide to have breakfast in town with a view of the lake out the back.

Stopped by a couple evenings prior for a glass of wine and decided to make reservations for Saturday dinner. The staff was engaging both visits and very polite and efficient. My husband had the rib eye steak which was good but cut a little thinner than others he has had in NZ, but still tasty. I had the calamari which... More

The service was prompt, and very pleasant and friendly. Free WiFi was a massive plus as we were able to call family at home in Australia. We had the superfood salad and the roast pork tenderloin both were amazing. Finished with the Ricotta Doghnuts : ) very happy honeymoon!

Lake Tekapo doesn't have much restaurants and this is definitely a great option! We had salmon and the beef rib and went back for breakfast the next day (opens 7AM). Compared to other New Zealand restaurants in smaller places, the food is tasteful, less greasy and more original. They have good views on the lake and a terrace. Nice people,... More
