Came with a group of ladies who are passionate about food, service was fast and excellent. I had the Ruby Island stone grill, it was easily one of the best steaks I've ever had, fun dining experience too!

Best venison that I have had in any restaurant. Waitresses were helpful funny and attentive. Meals were served quickly even though they were fully booked.

This is without doubt , the best restaurant in Wanaka . The lamb shoulder is to die for , the steaks are like butter and the sides are delectable . Honestly if you go here and don't enjoy it , just give up eating .

I'd say this is pretty good steak for a small town like Wanaka, but I've had much better and very often so elsewhere. We waited a long long time (maybe more than an hour?) for the food to be served. You wonder why it takes...More
