Wonderful wild meat, nothing is farmed. Lovely service and amazing sides too. The goat was so soft and the venison was great!!

The service was exceptional and we felt involved as we were invited to rate and comment on each course. The atmosphere was friendly and fun. . The vegetarian menu we chose was surprising, and quite delicious. The flavors were amazing and the textures and presentation...exceeded our expectations. A real treat.More

This is hands down, the best restaurant in Wanaka and the whole Queenstown Lakes District. Probably in most of New Zealand even. Luca and the team really know how to produce amazing dishes with great quality local and organic produce. We always leave feeling satisfied...after a great experience. If you eat at one restaurant in Wanaka, make sure it's Ode!More

One of the best dining experiences we have had. So much thought and skill has gone into each and every dish with each flavour having a purpose. A must do if you are vegetarian/vegan and want to have an exceptional meal. Although the wild shot...menu was also incredible so perfect for all preferences. Simply can't recommend Ode enough.More

It was the first time we had dined at Ode for a couple of years but we will certainly return soon. The menu is based on the best available, seasonal, local New Zealand produce and it is exceptional. It was a warm summer night and...the doors were open to the balcony. This is a quiet restaurant. Unlike many modern, noisy restaurants, you can easily hear what your table mates are saying. In my view this is certainly the best restaurant in Wanaka!More

We had a fantastic dinner last night at Ode Wanaka. We chose the 3 course Trust The Chef and very glad we did! Beautifully presented dishes all with incredible flavours. The Tahr Tartare was voted the favourite and was so delicious. Great service from all...of the staff too. A real gem.More

We made a reservation which I would recommend, but you would have to ask them on whether they are open or not.
