“A real find - don't miss it if you are a foodie”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

We were looking down the barrel of a cuppa-soup when we heard about this place, which unless told, you would probably think it was too exclusive or private to suit a hungry family of three young growing boys.
Don't be fooled - this place is awesome - bain-marie style offerings of really good cafe style home made food, plus the options of chef cooked meals. While we waited for our food, the kids played happily outside with the myriad of ponds and pools and gardens to explore. Very relaxing and would give my highest recommendation for couples or families to put this on thier route. Prices were excellent value.

“Unexpected and Great Fun”
Reviewed 28 January 2014

Karen and I had one of the finest days ever at Ladybird Hill Restaurant in Omarama today. It is set in a beautiful park-like setting with dining inside or out. Lots of room for children and catered for. Great family place or couples.............plenty of room to roam around outside or just sit in luxury inside...............
Along with the chance to catch your own salmon and have it smoked and prepared right there while you wait
with a delicious wine from their own winery. Has all you want in the way of delicious food not just salmon. I
am a vegetarian and got my fill while a friend had one of the best looking steaks i have seen here in
New Zealand. A full restaurant catering for all tastes. Don't miss stopping here...............ten out of ten......

“Great outdoor experience”
Reviewed 27 January 2014

Very enjoyable walking around the outdoor walking tracks and looking at the ponds of fish. Catching a salmon was great fun! Didn't have to sit on the side of river bank waiting for hours.

“Salmon fishing...and awesome playground”
Reviewed 27 January 2014

we went here for the afternoon having coffee and slice and stayed on for dinner, as we ended up catching a salmon and having it smoked on site.. If you are travelling this would be a great stop with children to burn off some energy on the amazing playground, built in a Ladybird theme.There is a large chess set that we played with.The owners were around and we found them really friendly and our meals were great. If you haven't fished before this is a really good way to having a go.....

“My first fishing experience”
Reviewed 8 January 2014

We had a day trip to Omarama on new years day 2014. On the way home we stopped into the Lady Bird Hill restaurant and salmon fishing attraction. The staff were very friendly and the place had a great setting. We were very disappointed that we had not stopped on the way to Omarama as we had a meal in the town. The food looked great and looked even better. My wife wanted to try the fishing as she had never caught a fish before. They guarantee a catch and will cook it and smoke it in approx about 35min. Once smoked you can include it in your meal or take it with you. We would recommend this place to everyone to visit.
