Lunch of garlic butter prawns with nice salad and dip with slices of bread with butter as asked for and a coffee to follow. Very pleasant and effecient service. Plenty of sport on screens if required. I will be back.

Visited for dinner. I had a beer (ordinary tap beer in silly little glasses - good for profits), my wife had a wine. Ordered Tempura prawns and Squid to start. The Tempura pranws were more like Pakora with a very heavy batter, containing dried shrivelled prawns. The squid was quite flacid, in a greasy batter.
WWe decided to leave and so the staff humiliated us at the exit, made us go back up the stairs to the bar and accused us of leaving without paying.When they realised they had made a mistake, they couldn't get us out of the place quickly enough.
Nice views, but you pay for it with garbage food, ordinary drinks and unpleasant staff.

Restaurant with a good view of the Lake Wanaka. Service could be a bit better, but orders were taken quickly, food served much later. Food portion is good, and taste is above average. Advise skip the platter as there is too much cure meat and processed meat there. Kids love the beef rib !
