Visiting wanaka we decided to splash out and do the 5 course degustation.
I know it is a wine bar, but we were really there for the food (sample menu looked great).
We were presented with a wine menu. I said that I was sober driver and asked if there was another drinks menu, I was told no, so I asked what non alcoholic options there were. I was told “juice” apple or orange.
My partner asked what beers were available, there were 2 options, when he chose one of the options he was told that was actually unavailable. Wine was offered, but again no other options so he opted for water.
Service was super slow, it was busy, but even so, we were eating off a set menu.
We were pretty disappointed when we saw another table with cocktails, this option wasn’t presented to us.
The food was delicious, but very small in comparison to other degustation menus we’ve had. Unfortunately I had a reaction to my apple juice and even though we had been there for 2.5 hours we had to leave before the final course.
To their credit they removed the cost of the final course from our bill.
I see on the website quite an extensive drinks menu....wish we had this option.
Sorry guys, it was a bit of a miss.
