Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Arrived in Te Anau a too early to check-in to my accommodation. Stopped by the Town Centre to find something to eat and found that many of the restaurants were closed. It was a Sunday although the websites showed they were open. Luckily, Miles Better...Pies was open and saved the day! I ordered a Mince (Minced Beef) and Cheese pie and ate it at a table down the street. Service and food were really good! They also offered sweet items in the bakery.More

Had a pie from here today for lunch. Excellent, steak, mushrooms and bacon… packed full of meat and the pastry is as good as I have tasted. It’s take away with a few benches outside, I took mine back to the Air BnB. Definitely recommend

Worth driving out of your way for these fantastic traditional meat pies - made as they should be - quality meat and gravy, and crusty pastry.

People reckon these are the best pies in NZ. I reckon they could be the best pies anywhere. Tasty as - the venison was lean and tender. No fat, no gristle. Same goes for the lamb and mind pie.

This is the best meat pie I have ever tasted! I’m usually not as big on meat pies as my husband, but these were like heaven! Tender fresh flaky crust, filled with meat and other yummy ingredients. Its definitely a must do when you’re in...Te Anau!More

Fabulous. Our tour director took us here - small group travelers - he said it was the best in New Zealand and though I only had one other pie to compare it to I can say this was fabulous. I had the ground beef and...cheese. I so wish we had on of there in my town. They could make a killing in the US. Go here you will not be diappointed.More

Delicious pies, best we had in 3 weeks in NZ. Loved both the lamb and the venison. Coffee was also good. There was a bit of a queue but totally worth the wait.

A great place for meat pies. I enjoyed their steak, mushroom and bacon pie while hanging out at the lakeshore nearby. This was my second favorite pie during my NZ trip. Fast friendly service with outdoor seating and a couple of parking spaces in front...of their place.More

Beef pie is yum. Very nice. Mocha was not very good. Something wired taste. But walking by the beautiful lake and drinking feels better.
