For starters the place is as advertised, in a beautiful spot, and clearly they have spent money to give it a makeover. The service was excellent (we had the place to ourself). The menu seemed to be a normal size or even a little small compared to some places in town and all mains were over $30NZD. I live locally... More

Having dinner with straight views of Mt Cook and Mt Tasman would be nice enough but having it with heartwarming meat dishes, tasty salmon or light pasta, followed by the most delicious chocolate pudding is a real great dinner. We can strongly recommend the restaurant. We stayed for a few nights in the lovely hotel as well and ate there... More

We had dinner here twice during our stay and was very pleasantly surprised by the quality. Very good venison pie and lamb shanks. The waitress and chef were also very accommodating regarding my wife's needs as a result of illness, preparing things not on the menu. And, the mountain views are great!

We stayed at the High Peaks hotel which was lovely and such great surroundings. We had dinner at the restaurant and it was very good. The wild salmon was delicious and the preparation unique. The venison and the pasta were very good also! Would definitely recommend this restaurant for dinner when you're in the area to see the beuatiful Matheson... More

Sitting at a table, looking directly at Mt Cook and Mt Tasman, absolutely unsurpassed views, after an excellent venison hot pot and scrumptious salmon, followed by a to-die-for chocolate and boysenberry pudding... I strongly recommend the restaurant. Great meals, superb views and great service: more than you expect in a resort town, for sure!

Thank La_Kedi
