Overview
More
A sophisticated yet casual wine bar with a great range of whiskies & NZ wine / beer, including our very own 'Fiordland' range. Delicious Kai Iti (Kiwi-style tapas) served daily 4-9pm during summer and 4pm-8.30pm during the winter. Happy hour 5.30-6.30pm daily. Black Dog Bar is attached to Fiordland Cinema - you can take your local wine / beer in to the movie theatre with you! Lovingly named after Billy, the Black Labrador.

Stumbled across Black Dog chasing a light but satisfying feed - and boy were we satisfied! We tried the venison, pork/hare and whitebait tapas. All were delicious - in particular the whitebait. We talked at length with the owner/head chef about dishes we had (including...More

Our favourite spot to visit in Te Anau. Contemporary, classy, and very reasonably priced drinks. And the platters are also delicious! Love the Black Dog Bar.

Fab little bar attached to the Fiordland Cinema. Great wine and dips platter and other yummy snacks on the menu. You can take them all into the cinema if watching a film. Loved it. Very friendly service as well.

Hi Cesfi1, thanks so much for your review and we are glad you enjoyed our lovely bar and drinks list! The décor certainly is fab - for those interested, the Interior was designed by Vesta, Queenstown. Thanks again!
