We ended up at the cafe largely by accident and would have expected high prices, but they were surprisingly reasonable. We had the wedges with chilli dip and sour cream dip. If we were staying it would have been a nice place to have a...few beers, but alas I had to drive back to Te Anau, so had a nice cup of tea. Nice helpful receptionist and wait staff.More

We stopped in after the Milford track while waiting for our Shuttle service to take us to Queenstown, the food was just what we needed, the staff were lovely. A must stop for all.

My wife and I spent a night at the Milford Sound Lodge, The campsite was absolutely stunning and the food in the restaurant was delicious, staff were very courteous, we even got a tip on where we could see the Kea’s in the wild.

Absolutely delicious! Staff were fantastic, service was quick and we definitely loved the food. My son had the Thai butternut soup and loved it, my daughter and I had the chicken sandwich which was great but the star was the pork belly sandwich! Absolutely delicious,...would definitely recommend.More

Had an excellent meal at Pio Pizza Cafe tonight after a day exploring Milford Sound. Bit pricey but the food was exceptional. Seafood chowder was lovely for an entrée and hubby had goats cheese which was beautiful and creamey. Had venison for main and I...don't think I have had better. Cooked to perfection and melted in your mouth. Other main of pork belly also perfect. Desert of chocolate mouse and cheesecake didn't disappoint although make sure you are a hard core chocolate lover if you order the mouse. Limited menu but given the location some solid choices.More

Amazing food. Not the cheapest, but the $75 for three courses of your choice is great valve for such high quality. Venison was cooked amazingly. Staff all great as well

The food was exceptional and cannot wait to come back again!! It was fine dining yet such a reasonable price and one we cannot complain about. We were so happy and excited about the meals, we had to get some to takeaway and eat the...next day! Great staff, great meal, great place! Thanks againMore
