Ordered hotcakes for breakfast and got three pieces of half-cooked hotcakes with sticky batter inside. Complained to the waitress and in return, got two more albeit, still half- cooked ones.

Good choice of dishes from burgers and fish and chips through to steaks. The service was excellent and they had some nice wines. Not fine dining but after a long day out it was just what we wanted. I am sure we will go back.

Went here for dinner as the menu showed a nice variety. Didn't realize they also had a $15 specials menu as well. We had the crock of mussels...best deal for mussels we have seen at $22. Usually you get a dozen for $22-25, here you get a kg. Way, way more than 12. We ordered it in the white wine... More

We have waited very long for our food and were getting a bit disappointed, but when it arrived it looked great and so it tasted. The price was very reasonable and also its one of not many places open in the middle of the day. Don't be fooled by a bar-cafe look on the outside. It's a full blown restaurant... More

We stopped by on a recommendation and were not disappointed. The food was very good and the price was excellent. I had the fish and chips and it was perfect. Great beers on tap as well.

We ate here on both our nights in Te Anau as it was so good the first night. The service was very friendly with the lovely Jo. She made very helpful suggestions and nothing was too much trouble. The $15 meal choice was great - I had the best steak and pepper sauce I've ever had! (and I've had many!!)... More

We had the $10 breakfast of eggs and bacon and toast, a real bargain. Well cooked eggs (any style) and good back bacon. Quick and friendly service, could not be bettered at this price.

We ate here on our 2 nights in Te Anau. The service was first class and the meals were amazing. We found the $15 meals well worth the money and the starter meal of the ribs more than enough for a main meal. Definitely recommend this restaurant.

I had the lamb shank and hubby had the chicken breast. Mine was gorgeous and he declared his one of the best meals in NZ so far (been here 5 weeks). Service was prompt and friendly and prices very reasonable. People after us (around 7.30pm) were queuing for up to 45 minutes for tables. Always a good sign - but... More
