We had a birthday celebration at Redcliffs, the food was fantastic (especially the kids platter!) Great location, quaint setting and furnishings, we sat out the back undercover. The Lamb shanks were delicious, the presentation of all meals was fantastic.

We went in the winter and arrived around 8pm. We were definitely the last table to be seated that night, but the hostess greeted us graciously and sat us. We wound up splitting 3 appetizers and every one of them was delicious. One of our best meals in New Zealand, and definitely on the south island. It might seem slightly... More

If you are only going to eat in one place this is it! Sadly we only found it on our last night, but so glad we did. There were no large tables left, but we were given a really cosy table in the entrance area by the log fire. Front of house was superb, lovely lady who was attentive, efficient... More

It's good but not a woooo good. $35-$40 for main course. I ordered the smoked lamb while the others in my family both ordered the lamb shank. No disappointment.

This cosy place is almost a guarantee of cook cooking and a dining experience to treasure. Went with guests from overseas and we all had delicious meals, including perfect venison. Most memorable was the Wild Goat Ragu. Just oozing with flavor!

Love this place! Visiting from the North island and loved the service, food was also fantastic. Had the seafood entree which was Devine, also enjoyed the duck. Very reasonable price and warm and cosy atmosphere.

The atmosphere is quiet and cosy, this wee place is full of character. The service was lovely and the food was absolutely divine- every mouthful bursting with flavour and interesting textures. The menu was so delicious sounding it was hard to decide what to have. I would not pass through Te Anau without treating your tastebuds to this experience.
