A true highlight of our trip; we had a brilliant shared meals experience with friends. Superb service, and delicious food - the dessert I had will be one I remember for ever. Incredible. Thanks for the memories gem - we will be back next trip!

Food was outstanding beautiful flavours. Excellent service and a big eater was beaten! They straight away offered to make up a takeaway box without being asked. Didn’t know wines so gave us a tasting excellent !!

I recommend the 'Feed me' menu with matching wines. This included 3 starters, 2 sides, 1 main and a shared dessert. The wines matched perfectly to the dishes. Each dish was full of flavour and perfectly cooked. I especially loved the mushroom and tofu dish!...The staff were friendly, knowledgeable and polite. The ambiance was nice but with hard surface floors it was difficult to hear each other, even as a couple, especially when other customers accidentally dropped cutlery. I definitely recommend it for the food and wine and will visit again.More

Outstanding meal. Absolutely delicious. We did the ‘Just feed me’ chefs selection $75, which was a delight of flavoursome treats. Exceptional service from staff, particularly Carly from Arizona who was delightful. Will be back.

Unbelievably Outstanding. In both service and food. We chose the ‘Just feed Me’ menu, where the chef selects a variety of dishes for you and boy, we were not disappointed. This little gem of a restaurant is tucked away behind the Main Street eateries but...has to be the best in town. Beautiful environment, friendly staff who knew all about their menu & delicious food. You will not be disappointed choosing this restaurant. Unquestionably the best food I’ve had in decades!More

Again a focus on sharing small dishes. Which is fine. The service was good and prompt. Ambience was hopeless as it's all hard surfaces so all talk bounces around and it's impossible to hear your partner.

What an amazing restaurant, they accommodated our party of seven at short notice. Food was just fantastic, we all agreed that it is way up there with 'best food we've ever had'. Service fantastic also, very knowledgeable staff who explained all dishes as they presented...them, we had the chefs recommendations, could not fault! Most certainly recommend and it will be on our itinerary for future visits to Wanaka.More

Gorgeous food - lovely staff. Lovely concept for a restaurant. Good wholesome healthy deliciously flavoursome food. Portions generous - the menu guide suggested by the waitress would have turned out to be a LOT of food so glad we under-ordered. Great drinks list also. Will...100% be going back - best place to eat in Wanaka.More

Right up there as one of the best meals we had in Wanaka for the week we were staying. Modern kiwi cuisine, beautifully presented and super tasty. The intro courses are amazing - especially the beef tartare and the blackpudding! The lamb was cooked to...perfection and the potatoes are something else! Would highly recommend and when we get back to Wanaka, we will certainly be eating here again!More

Hi Yeng Yun, No we will not be open Christmas Day or Boxing Day this year. Francesca’s Italian Kitchen and The Prince Albert pub will be open though so perhaps give them a try. Cheers, Gabby
