My husband and I went here for the 3 course set menu dinner, it was absolutely delicious and unbelievably reasonable. It's a bit of a drive from Glenorchy (approx 25m) but totally worth it. Couldn't fault the food or the service - a must-do if...More

Lovely place to have lunch. Food was delicious (try the Mussel plate - yum!). Very fresh. Loads of gluten-free options. Super warm and friendly service. Highly recommend if you want a real lunch in the Glenorchy area!

We enjoyed a late lunch at Kinlcoh Lodge on a frost Saturday and couldn't find a thing to complain about. The road to Kinloch is a gravel one and we enjoyed seeing a slightly less polished aspect over the lake and meeting some friendly sheep...More

An neat little spot tucked in about 10km from Glenorchy which you need to see to appreciate the typical out of the way places in NZ

We drove around to this quaint little spot across from Glenorchy situated on the banks of Lake Wakatipu and enjoyed a light lunch in the Kinloch Lodge restaurant. Here they bake their own bread daily and use fresh produce from their garden. We followed that...More

We had Sunday lunch in a peaceful,serene,setting, away from busy Queenstown. Food was excellent,both the main course and dessert. This place is well worth a visit to escape the maddening crowds of Queenstown.
