We went one night but it was fully booked out so they suggested we come for an earlier time for dinner around 6pm so we did that another day and we managed to land a table we could choose inside but the outside tables were reserved somehow even though we got told we can't reserve tables so wasn't sure about...

I have been to Reflections Restaurant many times over the years, usually every time I come to Lake Tekapo. Our group wanted to go somewhere else but sadly it was closed due to weather so we went here. I have never received such rude service. The restaurant displayed a small 'All Day' menu at the entrance so we chose our... More

This is a very nice restaurant with lake views. We enjoyed two nice reasonably priced dinner meals here. Good service and great view. Bonus of free wifi.

We waited for our meal we had pulled pork. Toasted sammies and chicken strips 2 ciders. $74.00 Tekapo is expensive. Service was slow but they were very busy. Food was ok. Toasted sandwiches were hard we askdd for pineapple they put a whole ring in😂 Interting

We ate here two nights in a row and on both occasions the service and food was above our expectations. There are not a lot of choices in Lake Tekapo especially if you are after more than just burgers. Some very healthy choices available also. Also a very good kids menu with more than just the standard burger and chips.... More

We visited here with friends. It was quite busy and the food was rushed and mostly deep fried. My husband order olives and they were literally tipped straight from a jar. Other diners appeared to be having a similar experience.

We had two meals at reflections--breakfast and dinner. All of the dishes we had over both meals were very well executed. They were also able to accommodate our various dietary restrictions and did it with a smile.

The food couldn't be better at this lakefront restaurant. Everyone on the staff is friendly and they work together seamlessly to provide excellent service.

Arrived for dinner on Boxing Day. Food was delicious. My wife and I both had the scotch fillet steak which was cooked to perfection and it melted in your mouth. Service by staff was friendly and welcoming. The price was reasonable which included the surcharge for the public holiday. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our experience we came back for breakfast...
