Food is fantastic. Organic vegetables grown locally. Friendly and helpful waiters. We ate here two nights. The menu has 3 starters, 3 mains and 3 desserts and changes every day. Pictured is citrus ice cream with berry meringues, berry compote and berries. Mmmm.

The setting of the restaurant is very nice. The staff that we met worked hard and were very pleasant and friendly. The first night we ate there we had a free dessert as we had such a wait for our main course. In fairness, I hate to be rushed through a meal and my husband and I were deep in... More

This lodge is not interested in anybody just passing through on the track. When they saw our packs their faces and attention changed esp the French waitress at the counter. They have got rid of the cool breakfast menu they had last year and have only a stock standard buffet menu which was pretty cold and naff. Won't be looking... More

We ate at the Peppers resturaunt during our five day hike over Christmas. The food was great although the service was terrible. The manager was not very inviting which we assumed was due to the fact that we weren't paying to sleep at the lodge. We ordered our Christmas meal and were almost refused a second round of drinks with... More

Kia Ronia, thank you for your review. I am disappointed to read that you didn't feel as welcome as the 300+ other travelers coming through the lodge, every day. We certainly welcome everyone and like to be the oasis that we are in the middle of nowhere. I have to agree with your comment of us trying to prevent people... More

We arrived at this Lodge for a night's stay after a day's walk on the Abel Tasman Track. Whilst the bar / cafe area was cozy and friendly, the restaurant was notably empty apart from us. Being hungry following our efforts on the track we ordered main courses in the region of 35NZ$ expecting a hearty and tasty feast. Sadly... More

We have eaten here regularly over the last few years, its a great thing to do on a day out - take the water taxi and swim at Awaroa and then have a relaxing lunch in the lodge. This time I was a bit disappointed. The eating area was looking tired and unkept. The menu ( chalked up at 12.00... More

We had our evening meal in the lodge restaurant. A small menu but they were happy to provide a specific meal for our vegetarian guest. Service was great and the meals were beautiful.
