Good food, great service and cool vibe. The burger patties are amazing. Was pretty reasonably priced for what you get too!

We have eaten at Bailiez on previous visits to Te Anau and had really enjoyed the experience. We were so disappointed with our meal this time on a Monday evening. A party of six we were out to celebrate a birthday. The two members of our group who chose the battered Blue Cod had a lovely meal. Two chose the... More

I ate at Bailex on previous visits in 2007, 2009 and 2011. Each meal has been to a very high standard and my latest visit was no exception. All the staff were friendly and hard working and importantly, they worked well together as a team. The food was very well prepared and presented. There was also a good choice of... More

The food was tasty. My ribeye was done to perfection. They accommodated my wife's dairy and gluten free needs.

We ordered the Green Mussels, in "Spicey Red Sauce", but to our dismay, the sauce tasted no better than canned tomato soup. Beer was cold, and service just OK. Would not be at the top of my recommendation list.

Ordered hotcakes for breakfast and got three pieces of half-cooked hotcakes with sticky batter inside. Complained to the waitress and in return, got two more albeit, still half- cooked ones.
