Busy as anything and for a reason. The Fat Duck has a good choice of menu options, great drinks selection and a happy hour to boot! Worth it!

Good atmosphere, with good service. Good happy hour from 5 - 7pm. Food is very good but on the pricey side of things, burger is at $25.00 and was a small meal for a burger meal

Came here for dinner, was not disappointed. The staff were very polite and helpful informing us about the menu and types of drinks on. We certainly would eat here again if we visited Te Anau again.

A good selection of beers on tap. Their house wines are quite drinkable. From 5-7 each evening bear and wine are at prices that can't be beat. We only sampled the pre dinner offerings, but we had four items and they were all well prepared, presented and tasted great. I'm a calamari nut, if it's on the menu, I'm going... More

We didn't have a reservation and were luckily seated right away. We were told it was happg hour which made choosing drinks fairly easy. They have an excellent wine and beer selection and knowledgeable staff on hand. The menu was extensive including a kids menu, seafood, burgers and more traditional meals with a gastropub feel. The kids meals were a... More

To put this review in perspective..we visited between Christmas and New Year...the busiest possible time...so no grizzles from us regarding service or wait time given the time of year. We visit Te Anau regularly and have always frequented the Fat Duck for lunches and diners during our regular 10 day stay in Te Anau....This year, I was so disappointed with... More
