Fabulous friendly and thoughtful service, and a meal which had us wanting more - if we could have fitted it in! Reflections has become our favourite place to eat in Tekapo.

Situated just off the main road and with views down to the lake, there's a good selection of drinks and food to suit most tastes. We enjoyed our first evening so much that we went back again the following night to enjoy more of the excellent service and tasty food. On the first night we both went for a steak,... More

Ordered the fish and chips - very disappointing. Dry, thin piece of fish that tasted like it had been frozen for a long time. For $22 I expect more.

Very busy Saturday morning in Lake Tekapo, but the staff were more than happy to serve us just two drinks. Great spot at the rear with a view down the body of the lake. The ice coffee was so thick you needed a spoon to finish it. Nice spot with friendly staff.

We decided to have dinner here after checking on the few places to eat at Lake Tekapo. The service was friendly. Our food took a while to appear. My beef ribs was alright except that it was served on top of a pool of tomato ketchup and no greens. I would have thought that it will be better with bbq... More

Chose to came into this place as it looked lovely from the outside. There was no one at the cashier when we entered so we naturally approached the bartender who was pouring coffee into a cup at the bar. My partner tried to ask and place his order but was cut off abruptly with a snappy "can't you see I'm... More

We ate an excellent meal our first night in Tekapo - then returned for coffee and then dinner the next day too. Tomato, chilli and coconut soup; excellent meat, fish and veg dishes; superb desserts; a good choice of reasonably priced very tasty wines. All beautifully cooked and presented; really engaging waiting staff. A very pleasurable experience in a warm... More

Delicious crisp belly pork dish on menu. Waitresses helpful and knowledgeable about the food choices. Had nice warm fires on a cold night. Made my Black Russian cocktail perfectly too. Highly recommend if you are in the area. Provides great wifi speed and allowances.

We were told by the very friendly waitress that it was a new menu. The steak meals were cooked beautiful. Both options ordered at the table. The chicken burger also went down a treat by another family member. One of the best cooked tender steaks I've ever had. (Medium rare spot on).

Thank tinpins
