Stopped in based on a recommendation online. Underwhelmed. Staff were super friendly and accommodating, but food was average. Coffee was undrinkable, too bitter. No atmosphere either. Cigarette smoke comes right in through the back door, so we had to move. Wouldn't go again.

We stopped off here on route for Mt Cook and thought the food was good for the price. The superfood salad was healthy and the fish and chips was just right for a light lunch. Great views over lake.

A restaurant with most seats commanding a view of the lake. The burgers are sufficiently large for adults. I tried the special menu of prawns and mussels which was succulent. Recommend to book in advance.

Very relaxing evening with sunny skies, a good ale and delicious food! This place is the best in Lake Tekapo. Breakfast, lunch and dinner is great here!

I had my first dinner in NZ in Reflections. Beef steak and lamb shanks were very good. Tasting plate was average. Staff were friendly and overall it was good experience.
