Accompanied by their homemade bbq sauce the beef burger was excellent! Our friendly feline host made sure we werebeing looked after. Great food, wine and views, we drove back out LazyDog before heading to Franz Josef - really worth the detour!

If you would like to taste lots of different kinds of New Zealand wines from different wineries, have some lovely home cooked food and enjoy the hosts very warm manner The Lazy Dog is the perfect place.

Diane and Dean, our very friendly hosts, have a very innovative way of letting guests sit down relax and taste 5 wines while also picking something for lunch/dinner. We ended up tasting around 20 wines and both had fantastic lunches at the same time!

The really great aspect of this is that many wine producers let The Lazy Dog be their tasting outlet so we were able to taste several different wineries at the same time including the Lazy Dog themselves. This led us to buying several case from different wineries all through the Lazy Dog.

Great place all round, highly recommended.

Wow. We have eaten and wine tasted in many places and this one rates as one of the best! Excellent food and service. We had a member of our group with unique food sensitivities and our hostess was very attentive to these needs. We loved the format for choosing our flights of wine. If we had discovered this earlier in our week in the area, we would have visited more than once. Ambiance is perfectly New Zealand. A must-go for foodies and anyone else wanting great food and a good overview of the regional wines.

This is without doubt my favourite restaurant in the Cromwell area. If you are in Central Otago, or travelling between Cromwell and Wanaka, do stop for lunch at LazyDog.

The staff here are very friendly, and nothing is a problem with regards to your comfort and enjoyment. The view over the Upper Clutha Valley is beautiful. There is a play area and a horseshoe rink to keep everyone entertained.

The platters are great value, with plenty of delicious options to fill you up.

Last time we stopped here, we didn't want to move on, it was so good to relax and enjoy the sunny garden over a leisurely lunch with the kids.
