Arrived on the Friday nite in Twizel and went here for our evening meal, just happened to be happy hour as well. Had the Burgers....wow they were fantastic and great value. Really great atmosphere with a singer entertaining and the restaurant was packed, a very popular place. The staff were friendly and helpful, so much so we went back for another meal two nites later.

When all else was closed in Twizel on Christmas day, we decided to set up on the outdoor table and chairs with a small picnic lunch, however we had no soft drink left. On seeing us through the window, a very thoughtful owner of Hunters Cafe and Bar, opened the shop doors, welcomed us to stay there, and brought out two glasses of ice, a lovely refreshing bottle of cider and bon bons to celebrate the lunch. We were so grateful, and felt that the hospitality shown was just wonderful, thank you Cheryl.

I can't even comment on the food at this point, because I'm writing this review at the restaurant (the big bonus is the free wifi) where my husband and I have been waiting for 1.5 hours for a basic order of fish and chips. We have now inquired 3 times with the staff as to how our order was coming along, especially as we watched the tables around us, all of whom arrived and ordered after us, get their meals. One woman (tall, long blonde hair, tattoos down her arm) was quite short with us and told us that it just depended on what we ordered. When we asked why we were seeing other people get the same orders as us, she just didn't answer. It's a cute place, and perhaps the order was just lost/misplaced, but they should have just fessed up and apologized instead of blowing it off.

Had the freshest salmon last night I have ever eaten. On the strength of that returned to try the venison. Even better. Delay last night was due to the fact they had run out of salmon so they had to nip up the road to get some from the salmon farm up the road.
