We were expecting more duck on the menu and was pleasantly surprised by the great meat choices as well as vegetarian options. Good music and enjoyed the frienliness of the experienced staff. Thank you. Vennison hamburger was huge and delicious.

It was one of our first NZ meals (our first was hilariously Asian) and we thought we'd try the steak in NZ. Given the price, we had high expectations. Surprisingly the beer battered fish was way better in taste. Friendly staff though.

We did a happy hour here a both nights we were in Te Anau. It is a cheap happy hour for wine or beer and has a nice selection of beers on tap. We never ate here, but we wish we would have.
