We didn't eat in but got take away. The restaurant was busy and bright and open. The take away area didn't get in the way of diners.
Favorite Dish: We had a selection of dishes with rice and spring rolls. The food was very good - standard westernised Chinese and less greasy than some I have had.
La Toscana is an Italian spaghetteria/pizzeria in Te Anau which saved us from starving beause of a late arrival in the city!
The staff is very friendly, as well as the restaurant atmosphere.
Food is also tasty, definitely the best Italian food we had in New Zealand!
under chefs specials was listed as Chips yes chips - should have left then and it didnt get any better
service apalling- waiter left in the middle of taking my order to take the order from the asain bus tourists - while was paying the bill the waiter left to attend to the asain bus tourists - VERY RUDE !!!!!!!! while i was paying him
food dreadful slop - since when has chinese had frozen carrots peas and corn in it - like the ones you buy at the four square store or coles all neatly cut into little cubes - this is the most dreadful meal
NOT AUTHENTIC CHINESE
OVER PRICED AND EXPENSIVE
my tip if ur not asain stay away because u will only be served slop with frozen vegetables - no nice steamed brocolli or asian greens like bok choy
3 STAFF MEMBERS WERE UNABLE TO UNDERSTAND THAT I WANTED RICE AND NOT A FORK
ABSOLUTLEY DREADFUL - DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY - THEY DO WELL ENOUGH WITH ASAIN TOURIST BUSES
It's on a lovely old cottage on a side street.
The interior is very cosy, decorated with old stuff. The guet book and some pictures on the wall will reveal that this was the place chosen by the LOTR film stars and staff for a great food experience.
It also has a garden bar.
Favorite Dish: Delicious venison as well as seafood and a superb passionfruit cheese cake I'll never forget.
We had dinner there twice. Why look for another restaurant if we had had such a good experience?
Great quality food, generous serves and a nice casual atmosphere. We stopped for lunch and were impressed.
Favorite Dish: Mussels steamed in lemongrass.........very fresh
Sue had a steak sandwich & Col had a venison burger....both delicious.
The restaurant is in an old settlers house and has a great cosy feeling. The staff are really friendly. You can't make bookings, you just have to show up and hope they're not full! The staff at our motor park recommended the place to us, and we ate here both nights we were here.
The food is fesh and local with a modern twist and includes venison, lamb, duck and salmon. The salads are great and the desserts were great :)
Favorite Dish: My favourite dish was the loin of venison served with sweet potato and roasted beets - I'm getting hungry just thinking about it again lol.
they served good breakfast.. if you see my pictures.. its a nice place for breakfast to start your day.
Bakery cafe, specialising in breakfast, lunch, BBQ meals wth Caffe L'affare coffee.
Favorite Dish: order breakfast set.
Restaurant is quite outstanding at Te Anau. And we missed chinese food.. so we took our sumptous dinner at this restaurant. Looking at the delicious food.... it tastes good too. Try it! Fried rice tastes good too.
There's a display of meat that you choose and then present to the chef. Select the way you want it cooked, and it'll be on your way soon enough. The meal comes with as many helpings of salad at the salad bar you wish for.
Seemed to be a popular place to eat. We managed to get a table for 2, but lots of people were being turned away.
Favorite Dish: Satay seafood with deep fried mushrooms.
Venison & vegies
Best described as a steakhouse. Fresh suculent meat with generous serves of chips and vegies.
Great atmosphere with outdoor dining as well.
Favorite Dish: Steak with pepper sauce
Very nice food in this restaurant where you can choose your dish e.g. beef steak, chicken, salmon and they will cook it on the spot for you. The meal includes a free flow of salad.
