Was disappointed with our meal tonight, very average & we were hungry. It didn’t taste bad, just nothing special that’s all

Booked as we heard it got busy, so we didn't have to queue after a long day! Bentos are nice and fresh. Friendly and generous service. Nice view overlooking Lake Tekapo and very reasonable price.

Don’t get me wrong, this is an excellent place for dinner. Service is great, portions are good. Perhaps we had expected much more for the number one ranked restaurant at Lake Tekapo. Had the tempura bento - it was nice. Crowded place. So either go...More
