We dined here on the 15 & 17th May 2017. It’s hard to know where to begin as our dining experience was excellent. Katie took our reservations both times, very professional, helpful down to earth and jovial. We were waited on by both Katie and Carlotta, both very attentive, friendly and gave us very good service. Restaurant ambience with background... More

This review is LONG overdue for our trip back in February. In preparation for our trip, I made a reservation at Kepler for Valentine's Day dinner back in January. I received confirmation and didn't worry about a second confirmation. When we came to the restaurant, KT did not have us in our books but she did NOT turn us away.... More

We heard and read plenty of excellent reviews for Kepler's and were psyched to have a good meal after a long day out at Milford Sound. Ordered the seafood chowder, seafood platter and lamb rack from the menu. Seafood chowder was clumpy and had a bad texture; seafood platter wasn't fresh and too salty for our liking; lamb rack was...

It was an impromptu decision to try out this restaurant. Te Anau is a small town. It's easy to find this restaurant. Ordered the crayfish seafood platter (it's a seasonal dish so it's not on the menu). The platter comes with cray fish, mussels, fried fish fillet and calamari. It taste awesome! Remember to eat the flesh in the crayfish... More

Just a really lovely experience... the food was great, the staff amazing (Hi Katie!!!), and the international flavours were delightful. The atmosphere simply added to the night. We had the best time! We will be back. Conveniently located. Do yourself a favour ... go here!

We loved this restaurant. You must make reservations as it fills up very fast. It is the best restaurant in Te Anau. Petra was our waitress and she was excellent. We shared the lobster dinner and it was incredible. The second night my wife had the seafood fettucine and I had the grouper special The food is so flavorful and... More

The food. The mood. The location. The crew. And everything in between. All are working together to deliver a good experience. And great it was. The delicious fish duo or rib eye steak or paella all exceeded expectations. Above all, the jazzy music added a lot to busy restaurant that can fit not a lot of people, making the mood... More

Took my Father and law for dinner. Great setting, excellent food and wine list. Fantastic service from the team. I'd definitely return when we are back in town (and have the authentic roasted garlic bread).

On my last visit to Te Anau I wanted to come here but had not made a booking and unfortunately full. This time my friend who is local made a booking. Apart from catching up with my friend I found the experience disappointing. International or tourist prices but not international service. The wine list was sparse and pricey. We ordered... More
