The service was by far the worst I've experienced here in new zealand. Server couldn't be bothered to even take a second drink order and a snide comment was made when we just ordered appetizers.

This pub has great views of the lake. Sit inside or outside. Prices are goo for the value you get. Burgers are a decent size. They also serve kids food as well/

We ate here on the recommendation of our accommodation providers and weren't disappointed. I had the ribs which were delicious but I couldn't finish them because the portion size was so big. The waiters were very friendly & efficient.We will definitely go there again if we are in the area.

We just wanted a good value pub feed... Where to start? How about the service, 1 person on to serve over lunch time and not surprisingly very little table service including no water delivered to tables, we expected at least that with the prices they were charging for their food! All the meals were ridiculously expensive! When ordering mine I... More

Ok so where do I start. They had no rump steak so offered the alternative steak which was 50 grams smaller and $10 more expensive. No discount for not having an item on their menu or anything. So my partner got the $35 steak and was disappointing. Although the schnitzel was ok it was very small. Furthermore, while sitting there... More

Ate here while in Te Anau, it was very close to the motel. The food was delicious; rump steak with prawns. There was a slight mix-up with the order but it was quickly rectified by the staff. They put the rugby on for us both nights. The only blemish was the language from some of the locals; a bit loud... More

We came here for dinner. I had the rump steak with prawns, vegies and potato croquettes. My husband had his without prawns and salad. The meal was well presented and delicious.

Had a nice meal after a long day out to Milford Sound. Our motel (Alpine View) provided us with a voucher for a drink while waiting for our meal which was greatly appreciated.

Apparently location isn't everything. We were looking for a nice pub to grab a drink and maybe dinner. This is a large, cold building with virtually no ambience. Nothing charming or welcoming about it. We did have a drink and sat outside to enjoy a beautiful sunset and the left to find a nice place for dinner.

A family friendly restaurant and bar located on the shore of Beautiful Lake Te Anau. We have it all, from an exciting kids menu to a whole range of styles of our signature dish - The good ol' steak! Whether you chose to sit in our fantastic beer garden and enjoy the sunshine while watching the sailing boats on the lake, or to join in the atmosphere while cheering for your team on the big screen, or to have a flutter on one of our 2 TAB machines, or dance the night away to one of our many live music acts - there's something for everyone, here at the Moose.... It's everybody's local!
