The food here was delicious and I am so glad we spoke to the staff as there is quite alot of variation in the portions size. The lamb shank meal is massive. Try the squid entree for something a little different.

Hi Karen, Pleased you enjoyed your dishes and great to hear the staff were so helpful. Our Wineglass menu changes seasonally, so we are due to change to our summer menu on 1 December. Perhaps you may be over during the summer to try the lovely items on that menu. Regards Trish More

We met old friends at this restaurant for lunch on a cold Winter's day in August. To some extent, one's impression of a restaurant can be influenced by the occasion or the company of friends, but this was a really nice dining experience. The food was almost entirely local produce, and the dishes were well prepared and nicely served. We... More

Have eaten here on a number of occasions but it most certainly would not be by choice! The last such occasion was June the 12th for a friends birthday.

The coffee is excellent - but the scones are out of this world. The best scone I've ever tasted, and they've got about 8 to choose from. The evening restaurant's food was also excellent as was the wine selections. My fish meal was divine, so soft and tasty - the salad and vegetables seasonal and fresh. Will definately visit the...

It was a beautiful balmy summers evening. I was happy. It was my birthday. I enjoyed my steak. The service was efficient if somewhat aloof. I didn't dislike anything

I believe this restaurant has one of the best views in Wanaka - no looking over roads or carparks - just staight out to the lake!

Great food whilst enjoying the wonderful views over the lake. Ate here a few times. The scones are delicious for afternoon tea - baked fresh when you order. New Years Eve dinner was excellent - great menu choices and delcious. No one on our table left a crumb!
