“Aniversary Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2014

Sadly we will not be travelling to Hanmer Springs this year for our 3rd Wedding Aniversary but I thought I would write a review for last year as time flies and I forgot too! The meal was superb and is always uniform! We hada lovely meal and even got take aways for later is that good and authentic yumm. The Owner/Manager lady always remembers us and makes a point of doing something special for us be it a glass of bubbles or a delicious desert for free such exceptional service so I am very much going to miss my annual visit to My FAVOURITE restaurant this year but you never know maybe a day trip to Hanmer just for lunch may be on the cards before this year is over. Thank you soo much for always making us feel special. Lisa and Peter x

“Fantastic food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

We really enjoyed our food here. We tried lots of different dishes between our group and it was all really good. The service was professional and friendly at it had a very relaxing atmosphere. We ate here more than once while staying in Hanmer Springs. This was our favorite place to eat in Hanmer Springs.

“Best food AND service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2014

Delicious food with brilliant service (& advice when asked!), and a complimentary glass of bubbles when the staff heard we were celebrating a special birthday! Such a lovely friendly atmosphere, and we so enjoyed meeting the lovely woman in charge.
