“Good food, friendly staff”
Reviewed 11 May 2014 via mobile

My husband & I ate here a couple of times in February. The staff were helpful & friendly. The food was lovely & even my gluten & dairy free diet was catered for without a fuss. Restaurant clean. Great view of mountain.

We enjoyed a decent meal here. Good options of meat, veg and salads. Nice staff.
Atmosphere feels like a nice rustic alpine hut.

“Privately owned - more reasonably priced”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

We ate here our one night that we stayed in the Park. The menu offered some variety and had good taste. The service and prices were reasonable. Considering the alternatives at the hotel, I would definitely choose eating here again.

“Great Food, Great Service”
Reviewed 1 May 2014

Mt Cook has very little choice of food outlet so it was a great surprise to find this gem. Food was simple but with interesting twists. Service was genuinely good and it was a standout against the Hremitage which in contrast was poor.
