Decided to walk through town and see where there was a good place to eat. This ticked all the boxes. Outside in the sun, great view of everyone walking through town enjoying themselves, grassed area where the little ones could run around while waiting for lunch and a menu to suit everyone. Husband made the comment that it was the... More

We booked into Stables the day prior and sat at a lovely booth as you walk in to the right (perfect for 5-6 people!) The food was really good - pork belly was a favourite, although as a starter only one piece was meaty and the rest were fat.. we recommend ordering a slice of bread to mop up the... More

Have been to Stables regularly over the past couple of years and have always had good service and great food. Inside dining always great when it is cold as it is cosy, have a lovely outside dining area for the warmer months.

Visited on a Saturday night, all inside tables were booked so sat at an outside table. Meals were served in a timely manner and my steak was cooked perfectly (rare). Will certainly be returning.

A busy famous restaurant in Arrowtown. Six of us walked in at around 1pm weekday and the restaurant was full. Tables are mainly outdoor, the whole atmosphere is so relax. We waited for 10 minutes to have a table. The food came very quick after we placed the orders. Salmon spaghetti is yummy.

We decided to give it a try for dinner tonight based on the reviews & so glad we did! It's a small restaurant so make a booking because we didn't & got sat luckily at the last available table. Lots of locals go there and we know why, because the food was delicious! I ate the fish special with truffle... More

Description
Enjoy the ambience of our fully restored 1876 stone building. Open for lunch and brunch from 11am with dinner being served from 5pm. Our al fresco setting is extremely popular during the summer months or take a step back in time in our beautiful interior for fireside dining. Our food is classic and hearty, focusing on slow cooked New Zealand produce, Aged steaks from the grill, and fresh seasonal produce. An excellent array of Central Otago wines. Feel free to join us for a full dining experience or enjoy some beverages and tapas.
