I read somewhere that Miles Better Pies was great, so when I visited Te Anau, I made sure to put it on my to-do list. And boy oh boy, I was not disappointed! I stuck with the tried and true Mince and Cheese and it...was awesome. Definitely up there with the very best pies around. Not bulked up with cheap gravy, this was just choc-full of quality mince. And cheese of course. It was so good we came back the next day to get cold pies to take to our next destination. Unfortunately we only had a microwave to cook them, but it was still damn good. I thoroughly recommend and will definitely be back next time I visit Te Anau.More

Maybe some talk about pies like they are a haute cuisine. Dunno why, but this small outlet has a good reputation, and we enjoyed the pies. Hot but not scolding, nice pastry, nice fillings, would recommend for a yummy bite on the run.

The pies were some of the best if not the best we have ever had. The staff were lovely. My husband had the Venison, 2 of us had the Thai Chicken and one the lamb. We all thought they were fantastic. We can't wait for...when we are down in Te Anau again.More

I talked up the “kiwi pies” to my partner for so long. This was the first one he’s tried and it was no better than the very average Aussie pies. Where is the flakey pastry :( the meat was nice but all in all, average.

We stayed at Getaway Te Anau and Miles Better Pies is around the corner. We tried the steak and cheese, lamb and mint, blueberry and apple all excellent and plenty of filling in the pies.

Flaky, tasty pastry and steak and ale pie (the daily special) was delicious. It was piping hot and had large chunks of high quality tender beef. Do yourself a favour if you are a family and get a large pack of hot chips to dip...into that unctuous gravy. High quality and quick especially if you are about to head off for an activity.More

Ok, after 4 days of eating dehydrated food, to be fair anything freshly baked would have tasted pretty good but these pies would have tasted good after a 12 course degustation meal! I had the Steak Bacon and Mushroom pie, and it was so good...that I then had the Lamb and Mint. I can't really say which was better but the others in our group who had other options all agreed that theirs were pretty special too. Great food; well done and thanks!More
