With the limited dining options available in the Mount Cook area, this is good value for money. I'm not saying that the food was not good...good food at a reasonable price.

The Chamois has a good selection of meals and drinks and the prices are reasonable and there is also a good view to be seen from where you sit. Pancakes for breakfast is also a great choice.

There’s only three restaurants in Mt Cook and we probably should have tried another. This one is set in a backpackers and is laid out in what seems to be an old refectory. The views are stunning, but the atmosphere is vacant and cheap. Bar staff were good and there’s a decent range of beers. Food was slow and poor. Our wedges took over 35 minutes because after we placed our order, a tour group turned up and they stopped everyone else’s orders just to feed this tour group. We enquired as to our wedges after 25 minutes and were told 2 minutes – 10 minutes later they arrived, badly burnt and clearly over cooked. We were too hungry to complain. We had, alas, already ordered mains while we waited – my Rib Eye was fatty and overcooked with stodgy vegetables, while my friends “Thai inspired curry” was indeed a plain Thai curry. I would look elsewhere.

We had the worst service you could possibly imagine, the lady taking our order was extremely rude and had a bad attitude! Food selection was average and so was the food.

Better service would go a long way!!

Ordered our food at the bar from a very pleasant young man. The order number is on the receipt so you just wait for your number to light up. You then collect it from the server. The food was basic, but tasty. You get what you pay for and considering where this place is situated, and transport issues I was impressed.
