Great food with a fantastic view especially if you sit on the terrace! Biggest breakie I’ve had in a while and tasted great! You definitely get what you pay for here!
Generally speaking, fish would be the last thing I order for a dinner when out for the evening, but there was something about the fish pie on the menu, that really whet my appetite and I was not disappointed. The combination of salmon, prawns and blue cod under a puff pastry crust, was simply divine and every mouthful an absolute explosion of taste and flavours.
Love this place, delicious food, great views, friendly staff and prompt service
What more could you ask for?
Excellent experience to dine this evening at this unassuming restaurant. Food was of excellent quality and quantity, and friendly staff are just adding to such a pleasant experience and short get away to Wanaka.
