Hi there, I'm sorry you didn't enjoy your experience at Gin and Raspberry and my apologies for not responding to you sooner! It's been pretty hectic around here during the holidays. Unfortunately, on the day you posted your review (presumably the day you visited us),...More

Really disappointed with the service - particularly by “Bar Tender Reece”. Waited in line at the bar for 10min only to have Reece serve the people behind (large group), completely ignore us and then provide the group with free drinks. When questioned, he said “oh...More

I stopped by a couple times on my recent Wanaka trip, and really enjoyed the variety of gin available. The place has a great vibe, and I was blown away by the view over the lake. I highly recommend this place to all gin lovers.

Great place for Gin based drinks. We had a spick bloody mary (wow stuff), mohito, strawberry and bell pepper based gin and tonic, popcorn with garlic/parmesan....Place to sit inside as well as outside. Nice evening out.

We visited on two occasions and had a great time both times. Service was fast and friendly, the view from the balcony is amazing and the gin cocktails are delicious. The signature ‘Gin and Raspberry’ is lovely, and they make a good aviation too 😍...More

Very cool bar, although really quiet on a Sunday night. That did work in our favour, we had the best seats in the house in front of the open fire. The friendly Bartender had plenty of time to help us decide what to drink. The...More

A good place for a late afternoon, early evening drink as you watch the sun go down on the deck -- as long as you can get near the heaters. Drinks were tasty and the usual price you would expect. The funiture is pretty low...More

They’ve got a really good range of gins here, I tried a local one. There is a limited cocktail list. I had a straight gin and tonic and it was fine. The view is lovely, over the lake.

Gin was as good but pleased I don't own the place, barmen are very slow. While Gin Cocktails are slow to make these blokes are letting money walk out the door.
