Food is ok, not great. Setting and staff awesome. We stayed there a few days, best meal by far was breakfast. Lunch and Dinner needs a bit of work, good once and if you are visiting the area nice place to go.

We were staying at the Te Mahia Resort and decided to go for a dinner meal to Raetihi Lodge on our last night. The place had been booked for a wedding over the three previous days so could not go earlier. We booked their water taxi ($18 per person for a return journey). This saved driving for 1.5 hours each... More

I loved superb fresh green lip mussels and my husband loved lamb. Meals were cooked carefully and tasty although might need to wait a bit long time but preferred slow cook and perfect.... More

Great food, location and service. We walked the Queen Charlotte track and this was our favorite meal by far. Top class and price not over the top.

We ate here on a Wednesday evening and really enjoyed the whole experience. We caught the water taxi from Te Mahi jetty and on the way back around 9-30pm the full moon was fantastic and Alan the skipper stopped the boat so we could take photos. The meal itself was very good and we had the Chowder and Smoked Salmon... More

We had dinner on the deck at the front of the restaurant overlooking the beautiful Queen Charlotte Sound. The food, service and wine list were excellent. The staff were terrific and very attentive to all our needs. Food was sophisticated, delicious and well presented.
