We walked in and the staff were very helpful in finding a table
We had the special of the day - Bluff oysters and they were fresh and delicious. We then followed with battered cod and roast vegetable salad and both were well cooked. Really enjoyed them both.
The staff were friendly despite being rushed off their feet. Thank you for making it a great night

Biggest night in wanaka, 'show weekend' and we were treated appallingly. 9 oclock at night about 30 patrons who were sitting in the outside tables not knowing each other were refused to be able to buy drinks in rounds. We were told they would only serve individually so they could check if people were intoxicated. This was ridiculous, some of our group had just dined and decided to have a nightcap with friends who were seated outside. This too was refused and once people started to complain 'She' shut up shop! So 20 plus people moved to the speights bar to enjoy and hour or so. Nobody was kicked out of there for intoxication.Shame really because it was a nice quiet place to catch up with friends, but won't be back to support this business in the future!

Had a genuinely delicious meal with friends at Trout on a Saturday evening; great food choices by all. Overseas guests complimented on how much seafood there was with the pasta - lovin the ratios!
Wine list isn't huge, however some very tasty local wines - and a few others from further afield. The Mount Michael Pinot Noir is fantastic!
A thoroughly recommended place for a meal - but make sure you book on the weekend, it's understandably popular.

Great place for a good dinner. Kitchen clises at 9 pm. Fish is great! Staff is very nice and view is amazing if you are by the window facing the kake.
