Nice atmosphere and service. We had the seafood chowder for lunch recently and enjoyed it. The chowder was really hot and not too strong tasting. The coffee came after chowder as requested. Would go again.

Spent two nights in te anau and had dinner at the fat duck both nights. Went Thai beef salad and lamb salad first night, lamb shanks and venison the second both very enjoyable, as was Laura's excellent advise on the surrounding areas, walks and drives.

Popped in for lunch and was totally impressed with the whole experience. The decor and atmosphere were perfect and the food was superb. The staff were relaxed and efficient. I will definitely be returning. If you get the opportunity call in for a great experience.
