Took friends for lunch, entire dining room reserved, but know one had arrived by the time we finished. Fish chowder disappointing, few bits of fish in a skinny white sauce, and steak sandwich excessive chilly, fish and chips ok. Come on Lake Ferry Hotel restaurant...More

We headed out to try the fish and chips as advertised for lunch. We were not disappointed. The fish melted in your mouth and the chips were chunky and crisp too.It was a quiet visit which we enjoyed,

We love coming here! Just a real local, Kiwi spot with a stunning view. Great meals, perfect on a great day. The kids love having a lemonade & looking out to sea! Definitely worth the stop!

Lovely at sunset. Fish n chips a specialty. Staff not real friendly but apart from that, a great place to visit with friends.

Unfortunately not a great visit- rude and abrupt service from our arrival until leaving everything seemed to be too much effort for the staff. Food was average, fries burnt and cold, steak chewy. Nice location but that's about it.

After a tour of the wineries, we were hungry, so drove to Lake Ferry. The hotel was amazingly full considering it is off the beaten track. It has a lovely ambience and a friendly staff. We had to wait as our food was cooked individually,...More
