Visited the restaurant with my sons and enjoyed the most amazing meal, thanks in no small part to our superb waitresses, Roisin and Florian. Food was truly world class from the first course to the last, with a wine list to match. Thank you all so much for a truly unforgettable experience.

Took a group of my best clients to dinner. I was thrilled with wonderful lake views, incredibly helpful and cooperative staff and top notch delicious food and wines. Think it was the best salmon I've ever eaten. The vegetarians were delighted with their gnocchi mains and even some very picky eaters in the group said it was excellent (very high... More

The view was incredible. The food was amazing and the wait staff were fabulous. In particular we loved Laurent (Larry). His sense of humor and knowledge about the wines and the menu made for an unforgettable meal.

Excellent food, Excellent service, Excellent wine. Beautiful location. I live in Seattle where we enjoy all things salmon. I had salmon at True South and it literally melted in my mouth!! Delicious! Creative! I went another night and had the lamb and all I could think was "this is a work of art!". Some of the best food I've ever... More

Expensive, overrated and very slow we did not enjoy dining at True South (as opposed to staying at the hotel, which was fantastic). The salmon was boring, steak dish was nice but the serving small. And it took over an hour to get our mains. Nice view though!

Looking over the lake with the mountains in the background, the setting is picture perfect. The wine list is expansive and expensive. The waitstaff are friendly and attentive. What let down this experience was the food. Vegetarian score 2/5. General score 3/5

My wife and I enjoyed a delicious breakfast on our last morning at The Rees. The food and the service were outstanding---as is everything about this wonderful hotel!

Very helpful and efficient staff. Our meal was very good and there was a good buzz in the room. We both had 2 courses which cost 85NZD plus a cheaper bottle of wine for 87NZD which we thought a little hefty plus a tip made this quite an expensive meal. About £115 for two. We did not return as we... More

The food was wonderful and a true credit to the chefs. We had some allergy requirements and they were more than helpful in this area.
