Do make a reservation if you want to have dinner at Kepler! It is a popular place. Good food, friendly but rather unexperienced staff, who do not always speak good English.

I ordered two starters ,Fish chowder followed by lamb sous vide both were delightful and good portions. Hubby had the rack of lamb, enough for 2 and beautifully cooked. The desserts were again suitable for sharing. The staff were engaging and fun, House red was good. A very enjoyable evening.

Friendly and helpful service, very delicious food - I had Seafood Platter, white wine and a Baked Alaska. The seafood is very fresh and prepared amazingly tasty, the desert was with special effect of burning iceberg:) comfortable music accomplishes the atmosphere.

We had the Lamb and the Fish Duo. Large portions, both were fantastic! Service was a bit slow. Make reservations for dinner. Good selection of NZ wines.

One can see the potential for a very good restaurant in the Kepler. However, my salmon was served raw (not rare)...and even after I returned it, it came back with portions still cold and under-cooked. My wife and I wanted to love this restaurant...with a little work, that might be possible.

I wasn't expecting that much from The Kepler but I am happy to admit that I seriously underestimated this restaurant. I suspect that life can be difficult for restaurants in Te Anau, The Kepler doubles as a cafe during the day but our evening meal was one of the best we found in New Zealand. There are lots of spanish... More

We were lucky that we had booked a table at Kepler as so many people were turned away, generally a good sign that you are in one of the better restaurants in the area. The food did not disappoint. The paella and the duo of fish were well cooked and tasty. The almond cheesecake which was the special that night... More

Having been at The Redcliffe the night before we were really looking forward to an evening at The Kepler as it was down as the no 1 restaurant. The food, staff , atmosphere was not as good as the Redcliffe.
