We had a super meal at this restaurant. Good service from Emily and other staff. The food and wine were excellent and fairly priced. A good choice for a special meal out to watch the sun set over Mount Cook.

The view makes it VG but service slow with almost no one there. Food okay but not spectacular and pricey. The buffet is a better choice.

Superb meal with good service and good wine. Fillet steak and Lamb were cooked medium correctly and did not need any side orders. The creme brulle was to die for with great freeze dried berries etc. Prices were a little high by NZ standards but...More

Efficient friendly service (thanks Jess) to complement great food and a stunning view. The best, healthiest kids menu we’ve seen in ages as well. Recommend and gives value for money.
