We had a fabulous evening after a long drive from Christchurch and then a busy afternoon working. Predinner drinks were served by a friendly and attentive bar host. We selected a dish of olives and the green lip mussels to share - we were off to a great start. When we asked after the characteristics of a particular wine, we... More

Scones, jam & cream and a coffee in the most picturesque location in the world. You're missing out (even if you don't 'really like scones') you should try them. You'll find it hard not to enjoy the scenery and the 20 minutes while they custom bake your scones will zip by over a coffee - I assure you. Definitely recommend... More

There was a new chef and they better hang on to him! The food was excellent! We had a lovely window table and a very courteous waiter. It was a leisurely dinner with appetizers, main course, cocktails, dessert, and after dinner coffee. Can't say enough good things about it!

When you first enter the restaurant of the Edgewater Resort you immediately feel welcome at home with the comfortable lounges, fireplace and overall modern, rustic chic décor. The area is divided into two interior zones and a beautiful outdoor courtyard shared with the café next door. We imagine many guests would be very happy to spend a large section of... More

Went for morning tea with my visiting parents and my kids. Ordered tea for three and BLTs. We were given a small pot of tea that barely filled the three cups. When I asked for a re-fill we were returned a sad looking pot of tea as the same single tea bag had been utilised. We had to fetch our... More

We were staying at the resort and rather than drive into town and having the hassle of being overly cautious with our alcohol intake, we decided to dine in at the Wineglass Cafe, which we rarely do, and we are very pleased we did so that evening.

Called in at the restaurant and sat outside overlooking the lake. Had the delicious scones - Buttermilk and Lemon and Poppy Seed. They were freshly baked - staff mentioned a twenty minute wait but they arrived within 15 minutes with our drinks. So worth the wait. The best scones we have had in NZ since moving over from the UK... More
