Was really disappointed for the museum not to be open as we had hoped to visit it but... the diner had great food and a great atmosphere. Staff were polite and friendly.

Warbirds and wheels do have some really nice cars that were in amazing condition. Unfortunately I do feel that it is overpriced for amount of vehicles they have. You only need about 1/2 hour to get around.

We worked in Wanaka for four weeks and we just had to keep coming back to Warbirds and Wheels Diner for lunch - the food was that good. We tried a couple of other places, but this was undoubtedly our top pick. You have to...experience their mousetraps and iced coffees - unbeatable! The food was fresh, the tables and chairs are clean, the toilets are kept clean and the ladies are real friendly. Good work team - can't wait to come back again!More

Not much food in the cabinets, so we ordered off the menu. Had a BLT on turkish bread; nice and fresh and came with a side of chips. Good coffee and prompt service. Got a bit rushed when a bigger crowd of people came for...lunch.More

Took family incl 3 young kids. We all loved the food. Best hot chips I've had for ages. Great coffee. And an interesting museum.

Worth dropping in to have the experience. Food was nothing amazing but kind of a cool Place and the kids loved it. If you go to the museum it’s worthwhile getting some fries and coffee here.

Looks great from the outside and we thought it would be great to have a big breakfast before the trip around the museum. We ordered breakfast and the bacon was cold, the poached eggs were dried up, the hash browns were lukewarm. Overall very disappointing....My verdict: I certainly wont be going back again.More

We walked over while we waited for our skydiving pictures. Good coffee and hot chocolate, but the desserts/treats were not good (dry and stale). The woman who took our order was friendly, but even though there were very few people in cafe we waited a...really long time for our hot drinks.More

Stopped for a bit of a break from our day trip and very pleased we did. Iced coffee was superb, made with nice strong coffee. Blueberry cream cheese muffin was very fresh. Gift shop had a refreshing variety at reasonable prices.
