The atmosphere is quiet and cosy, this wee place is full of character. The service was lovely and the food was absolutely divine- every mouthful bursting with flavour and interesting textures. The menu was so delicious sounding it was hard to decide what to have. I would not pass through Te Anau without treating your tastebuds to this experience.

Fantastic food and great hospitality. Live music after our meal and the friendly host made it a highlight. Would go back in a second.

We went here after reading the rave reviews online. Neither of us into game meat, we were a little skeptical as how good this place would be. Wow...were we wrong. The chef (who we had the privlege to meet) was so humble in the amazing food he'd created. I started off with the bread & dip (hummus, French onion and... More

This is one of the best restaurants we have ever been to, anywhere, and we are true foodies who look for the whole experience. Creative cuisine, quality ingredients, artful presentation, and friendly staff. We stayed in Te Anau for four nights and came twice to this lovely gem. If you visit Te Anau, you have to come to this place!

Would be the best restaurant I have been to in a very long time. The service from the staff was warm and friendly on very cold and wet night. The food was even better than the service. Great to find such a great place.

The Redcliff offers extremely well cooked NZ food and has never disappointed us. Would recommend wild Hare and a good Shiraz. It is worth paying the slightly premium , as it is exquisite.

We were not really sure where to go while in Te Anau, but we had heard from many different people that this was the best place to eat. The advice could not have been more accurate. The food here is truly impressive for such a small place. Every dish was packed with flavour. Simply excellent.

Redcliff was recommended to us so I looked on tripadvisor and can I say I appreciated all the comments and suggestions that people had made... like making a reservation, watch out for the draughty porch etc.. great help, thanks. I can also confirm that all the accolades heaped on the restaurant for its gastronomic delights are all true. The food... More

First class cuisine at very reasonable prices. This type of cuisine would cost double these prices in Europe. Great atmosphere and very good service. Book ahead as we didn't and were lucky to get in at all. Ended up eating in the bar but that's no hardship as the bar is lovely too.
