“An unexpected delight”
Reviewed 5 April 2014

Just eaten a beautiful meal in the Last Light Lodge Cafe, at Tuatapere, Southland, New Zealand. I had the Warm Blue Cod salad and my friend had the Greek Salad. Both generous servings, fresh, crisp, great flavours and the cod was to die for - lightly pan fried and with a delicious balsamic dressing. A great sauvignon to accompany, and lovely ambience - this place is part of a back packer's lodge/ holiday camp, but the meal was worthy of any great restaurant in the capital Wellington. Thanks guys - a great send off meal before we walk the Hump Ridge and eat freeze dried food for the next few days.

“Great food at the end of the Hump Ridge Track”
Reviewed 29 March 2014

Best hot chocolate! Nice pasta, lots of choice on the menu and an all day breakfast that I really would have liked to order from at 3pm in the afternoon.

“Delicious food and well-priced”
Reviewed 25 February 2014

This restaurant was recommended by some people whom we had met on the Humpridge track. We were in need of a nice meal instead of freeze-dried meals! The meal was delicious, I had blue cod, my husband had fillet steak. Both were generous servings, very tasty and very reasonably priced. There was a good selection of wine by the glass, also well-priced.
