I stopped in because I'd parked my car next to this bar when departing on an evening tour of the glow worm caves, and it appeared to be the only show in town past 10:00p.m.! Very friendly staff and clientele. A visitor can easily strike up a conversation, or sit and have a drink while people-watching (or both!)

A nice pub/bistro with a welcoming fire on a cold wet night. Huge Bistro meals, good prices and very enjoyable.

My Fiancé and I stopped in for a quick drink after a day of sight-seeing In Te Anau. The sun was beaming down so we opted to sit outside. There are a large selection of tables on the terrace with glass wind-breaks. Even if it is windy you will not be cold outside. Thankfully the beer was cold and it... More

Chose to eat here because the menu looked good. To be fair, the food was fine but the service and staff left a bit to be desired. Our order was taken,eventually, by a scruffy lad wearing stAined trousers and a grubby T Shirt. Not a good a good avert. Food was delivered by a waitress who was dressed very slightly... More

While in Te Anau, my wife and I were recommended to go here by the Inn where we stayed. We got two free drinks which was nice as all drinks in NZ are expensive as is everything else. My wife had the sautéed fish and I had the chicken. The chicken was right out of a frozen bag (not 100%... More

We enjoyed our pan fried fish and prawn supper. We didn't have to wait too long for it to arrive after ordering and the portion size was good and so was the service.

On a wet and cold night my wife & I decided to toddle from our motorhome park to the Moose because we had walked past it the day before and all seemed cheery and it was good decision. Great ambience, in front of an open fire talking to other tourists. Excellent service, very good food at a good price. It... More

We had dinner here upon the recommendation of our motel hoat. We should have checked their TripAdvisor reviews. The pan-seared fish and the fettuccine Alfredo were both fair to good. The citrus tart for dessert wasn't bad. The service was practically non-existent. I do not recommend this restaurant.

Thank Brad H

A family friendly restaurant and bar located on the shore of Beautiful Lake Te Anau. We have it all, from an exciting kids menu to a whole range of styles of our signature dish - The good ol' steak! Whether you chose to sit in our fantastic beer garden and enjoy the sunshine while watching the sailing boats on the lake, or to join in the atmosphere while cheering for your team on the big screen, or to have a flutter on one of our 2 TAB machines, or dance the night away to one of our many live music acts - there's something for everyone, here at the Moose.... It's everybody's local!
