Came in with partner and friend on our holiday. As I am gluten free (Coeliac) Bought other food from another place for partner and friend and was going to buy food for myself and the others were going to have beers. Was told we could...not eat there with the other food. 100% do not recommend. It is hard enough for me to eat out as it is let alone be turned awayMore

We were most pleased with our dinner here a couple of weeks ago. The outside tables were bustling with people, inside the restaurant the place started to fill during our meal. I had the Caesar salad with grilled chicken; my daughter had the lemon pepper...calamari salad - both were large helpings - great value for money.More

We did not book a table here and the place looked fairly busy but we thought we would try our luck to get dinner here. After a quick look around they said yes and offered us a choice of a couple of tables. We were...seated & given menus and said someone would be woth us shortly to take drinks food orders. They were busy so were happy with this. After about 5 minutes another couple came in and sat at the other table we were offered. We ended up leaving without ordering when those people had staff taking both drinks & food orders, before anyone had even checked in with us sitting at the next table. Was pretty disappointing but we ended up getting takeaway food from a place down the road and eating it by the lake. It was much more enjoyable. We had a perfect view of the lake and it was much cheaper.More

I ordered the fish and chips and it the fish was fresh, batter crispy and perfect, salad was nice and good potions....however my only complaint was that the l tartare sauce was the worst I’ve ever had. It didn’t have any flavour! I would recommend...you guys get a new one 😁 even a little homemade number with chunky pickles would be the bomb!More

Sports bar in Wanaka. Here you can get deep fried food and alcohol. Mulled wine fail - the syrup and hot water was terrible, I assumed wine had actually been mulled for hours in a lot with spices etc. The deep fried calamari was nice...and not chewy. Good service and location on Wanaka main street but unfortunately that was all.More

Beautiful spot, great atmosphere, awesome staff, but definitely lacking vegetarian/vegan options. **Plz add more vegetarian/vegan options on the menu!!! Rox❤️

Pretty average bar food that is way overpriced. Meals that should be circa $20-$25 based on the quality are priced at $30-$35. Disappointing.

Amazing customer service and yummy food! It was really busy but the staff handled it extremely well and provided the best service! They even managed to keep the kids entertained and brought their meals out real quick! Our main waitress (blonde hair glasses I think)...exceed our expectations with remembering all our drinks when asking for another and the lady at the tills event ordered us a taxi home! AMAZING PLACE!More

Trading solely on its location ! Any less prominent position and it would be out of business in no time. I shake my head at compliments and ask where have these people been eating KFC, Mc Donald’s ? It’s a Sports Bar with TV’s blaring,...poor food slow service and nothing more. Soulless Americanised fast junk food.More

Not sure about Xmas. Many places closed in general but back in action for Boxing Day.
