“Awesome flavorsome food”
Review of Big Fig

Big Fig
Ranked #4 of 95 Restaurants in Wanaka
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: $16 - $29
Description: Big Fig is all about slow food, served fast – delicious hot dishes, fresh salads, barista coffee and baking – all packed with flavour, made with love and ready to go. It’s an ever-changing selection of slow-cooked meats, tasty braises, pilafs, yummy vegetarian and vegan dishes. And we have an in-house bakery making fresh pittas, cakes, breads and more, baking all day every day. We serve breakfast from 8am-10am, lunch 11am-4pm, dinner 5pm-8pm, coffee and baking all day. We don’t take bookings – just turn up and grab a table. Big Fig is a family-style cafe founded by two sisters from a large food-loving Kiwi Lebanese family, serving modern middle eastern food with a home-cooking vibe. To Big Fig we bring heritage, tradition, recipes and stories.

Excellent service, great coffee and beautiful gozlemes are reasons why we’ll come back for another visit! We had Big Fig recommended to us and we’re very glad we tried it. Lots of options, the indoor and outdoor areas are lovely ~ all in all a great experience.

I’ve eaten here three times in the last six months. Great food and friendly staff. Prices are very reasonable. Would recommend to others wanting a quick nutritious reasonable meal.
