“Great Local Establishment”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 November 2013

Being local we decided to pay the Alpine Centre Cafe and Bar a visit one Sunday afternoon with friends for a quiet drink. The Restaurant/Bar has a great feel and an an aptmosphere reminicent of times gone buy. We returned the following week for an evening meal. The food was perfectly cooked and good value for money for locals and visitors to the area. The outdoor seating area was an ideal spot to take in the stunning views. Excellent service from great hosts.

“Ticks all the boxes”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 November 2013 via mobile

We are locals of Te Anau & we are hugely impressed with all aspects of the Alpine Centre recently opened in Te Anau. The centre is a real asset for our town as it showcases & advises on the many quality activities & experiences on offer in our region, opportunities that may have been missed by those solely focused on reaching our top destination, Milford Sound. The centre also offers tasty meals & good coffee and a wonderfully cosy bar built to replicate the first bar in Te Anau. We highly recommend the Alpine Centre to all visitors to our region and locals.

“Best food in New Zealand”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 November 2013 via mobile

While on a recent holiday in NZ, heading to Milford Sound, we stumbled across an amazing cafe and bar in Te Anau. The bar/cafe was actually along our gps route to Milford Sound on the corner of the main Te Anau road and Sandy Brown road. We decided to stop and go inside for a look.
What we found inside was so much more than just a cafe and bar. This place is also a booking centre for everything in and around town. The staff were all very friendly and helped us with planning our trip to the area.
We had a look at the menu and decided we had to stay for dinner.
The meals were fantastic. We both had steaks which were cooked perfectly and excellent cuts of meat. Very generous meal sizes and great value. Again the staff were very friendly and we were made to feel like locals. We enjoyed our meals so much we came again for a second night; perfect again!
In our travels around the South Island this cafe/bar was one of our highlights of our trip. Great food. Great people.
