We were told by locals that Poppies was the place in Twizel to go for special occasions and as it was the last night of our holidays we thought “why not?”. There were 4 of us and we each ordered a different main and shared...a salmon starter. The salmon was amazing. Plenty to share as a starter and so yummy! The standout for the mains was the steak, and the venison pie, lamb rack and duck were very close second! The most delicious Creme Brûlée for dessert completed a fantastic evening.More
Simply stunning food, lovely atmosphere, great service. Booking would be recommend. We had dinner last night and it was quite exceptional. Not the fanciest restaurant but very nice and a great atmosphere. One of the best meals we have had in a long time. Very...highly recommended.More
We dined at Poppies restaurant tonight, not only did they kindly squeeze us in, (not literally there was heaps of room). But the service was outstanding - the waiter was so lovely and wine she recommended was amazing. The food (and the wine) was also...outstanding can not recommend enough. Thank you so much Poppies! Will definitely be back. :)More
We stopped here to refuel mid morning while cycling some of the mountain bike trails around Twizel. There are bike stands outside.
Poppies is just off the main highway so its an ideal place to stop for refreshments. It wasn't busy and the service was...quick and friendly.More
Wonderful food and reasonably well priced
Ample to eat
Good serving staff
My only complaint - and they were not busy - it took too long between ordering and a meal arriving
But would definitely come again
2 of us came from Kurow to Poppies and 2 from Geraldine. We wasted 50 minutes waiting for our food. When we reminded them, it turned out they had forgotten. The waitress got out her pad to take our orders again! We, of course. got...up and left. They did manage to serve everyone else around us, including those who came after us. They also forgot to bring my elderly relatives their water. Incredibly poor service. We won't be back at all. We are now sitting at the Thai place and have already had our order taken.More
