Went for morning tea with my visiting parents and my kids. Ordered tea for three and BLTs. We were given a small pot of tea that barely filled the three cups. When I asked for a re-fill we were returned a sad looking pot of tea as the same single tea bag had been utilised. We had to fetch our... More

We were staying at the resort and rather than drive into town and having the hassle of being overly cautious with our alcohol intake, we decided to dine in at the Wineglass Cafe, which we rarely do, and we are very pleased we did so that evening. For appetizers we had the giant, very tasty garlic prawns grilled in butter,... More

Called in at the restaurant and sat outside overlooking the lake. Had the delicious scones - Buttermilk and Lemon and Poppy Seed. They were freshly baked - staff mentioned a twenty minute wait but they arrived within 15 minutes with our drinks. So worth the wait. The best scones we have had in NZ since moving over from the UK... More

Lovely place with both inside and outside dining overlooking Lake Wanaka. Had beer, wine, scones and BLAT. All were very good. We walked the 2KM from Wanaka and it was a lovely walk for lunchg

1st cafe I've been to where you have a scone menu! Order the scone you'd like and 20-30 minutes later it is served, freshly baked with your coffee or tea. Choice of savoury and sweet scones. Beautiful setting within the Edgewater hotel complex over looking Lake Wanaka and the stunning surroundings. Plenty of place to sit in and outside to... More

Has the potential to be great, but we felt a bit let down. Whilst my food was excellent, my companions had dry tuna, rubbery duck pancakes and over cooked steak. The waitress moved the wine list to put down a plate and didn't think to ask if we wanted wine. Service was from every person on staff, no continuity. Cutlery... More

The meals were prepared to order and coupled with a variety of local vegetables. The sauces for each dish were well balanced with the dish if not overly creative.

I think the last time I dined in this hotel dining room was about 15 years ago. Sadly, I won't be rushing back. All four of us agreed that the food was rather ordinary. Perhaps it was 'chef's night off'.... A few days later we talked to some friends from overseas who were staying at Edgewater. They were happy with... More
