Second time I have eaten here in six months. On both occasions our wait staff was excellent knowledgeable and helpful. The food is delicious although I was a little disappointed in my dessert this last time. Make time to eat here!

Sam was fantastic in his service and assistance with the menu. The lamb shoulder was amazing. An absolute must when you are in Otago.

We were welcomed warmly by the lovely Lydia. With no second thought's we went for the lamb to share. It was so yummy with a side of duck fat pots & greens. We had a window seat with lovely views of the lake & the...service was excellent.More

My wife took me here for my birthday a couple of days ago. I had been years ago, under previous management and had a good meal, but I was keen to try the Lamb shoulder. It did not disappoint. I've eaten my fair share of...lamb over the years and this was one of the best I have had. Slow cooked, but served on a sizzling plate, magnificent! We will be having that again for sure!More

Wife and I visited for tea on advice from others. If Wanaka people think this place has great food they haven't eaten at many places around nz. The best part were the waitresses. There was no love about the food from the presentation of the...mussels; just thrown on a plate to the overcooked cod. Second rate food doesn't do it for us.More

We've visisted a few times since my first review in 2016 and WGK never disappoints. They care about more than just the food and so the service and interaction and knowledge of their wait-staff is every bit as top-notch as the food is. We've loved...our meals, and always left wondering what all the other meals on other tables taste like! For a bit of theatre, pick the Hot Stone Grill. I thought that as you're 'cooking it yourself' it would be good, but not special! I was wrong. Whether it's the cuts, or anything they do to the meat first, or just how it all works together, the Stone Grill is exceptionally flavourful as well as being an engaging and entertaining way to eat!More
