Coming back through Arthurs Pass the kids wanted to try the Wobbly Kea instead of the Arthurs Pass Cafe & Stores across the road. This place could be really special if it had an injection of atmosphere and some professional management - a bit sad...More

It's a pretty charming place with kind and merry service, enjoy some hot beverages or drinks, wide selection of booze, but for God's sake don't eat here! The food is overpriced, I had beef and nachos, it was a pretty large serving, I ate the...More

Small selection of food. Over priced food. It was warm inside and very cold outside and the warmth was the only good thing going. Wish we had of gone else where.

Enjoyed Couple of meals here. Food was awesome and sitting at the window looking up at the mountains was nothing short of stunning. Watching the sunset on the snow capped peaks. Colourful and eye catching

Please note this place doesn't offer free wifi and even for charging your devices you first need to order some high price average food. Please avoid if you can. It's a typical touristy rip off place.

Eating in Arthur's Pass is a challenge since it's such a small town so this was our evening meal option. Menu is limited. You come in and order at the bar. We ordered pizza and fish. The pizza toppings are limited since the pizzas are...More

I quite often drive through on the way to the West Coast, have stopped here twice. I found the service both times to be pretty average if I’m honest, seemed like the bar staff would rather be conversing amongst themselves rather than their customers. First...More
