Next time I would book ahead of time. We were the second couple to walk in and ended up sitting at the bar because they had all their other tables booked!! We were very lucky to get a spot. The American bartender was fantastic. She knew exactly what my partner would like based on some of his favorite beers. Her... More

This restaurant came highly recommended so booking made for dinner for 6 of us. Not to be disappointed, from the walk through the mall to the door guided by delicious aroma of roast lamb wafting in the air, to the last moment when we walked out the door. Staff were pleasant, knowledgeable, and professional - a treat in itself .... More

Trip Advisor lead us upstairs to WGK for dinner and we were happy that we had booked. The entrees were lovely. My wife had garlic prawns and I had the scallops - both extremely tasty. We took the advice of others and had the lamb shoulder for main and we were not disappointed - fantastic. To round off the night... More

We used WGK (as it is known) twice in our 3 night stay. The best fish in NZ and the speciality lamb dish it very well worth a try.

This restaurant was recommended to us and it certainly proved to be excellent. The menu offered a good choice though plainly the stone steaks are their hallmark. The food was first class as were the staff who were so attentive and polite. One small but very welcomed touch was the fact that the chef took time to visit every table... More

Make a reservation, as seating is limited and it is a busy place. Food was excellent--taste and value.

10 people booking, staff friendly, kids friendly, excellent starters so yummy. Pork belly was very good, a lot of rough salt flakes on everything so that makes you quite thirsty but chocolate fondue also yummy as dessert. Eye fillet cooked to perfection. We would come again.

WGK is a brilliant restaurant we had the lamb shoulder and venison both were outstanding followed by what is probably the best apple crumble south of the equator

WGK is one of the best rated restaurants in Wanaka for a reason! The quality of meat is excellent and everything we had was incredible. I had the venison and my boyfriend tried the stone grill trio with lamb, pork, and beef. I absolutely loved the venison, it was cooked perfectly and extremely flavorful. If you love a good piece...

This place was highly recommended to us (thanks Sean C!), so here I am paying it forward. We had the lamb shoulder and it was a truly remarkable, memorable meal. Everything element of the meal was mouth wateringly delicious. Loved seeing the chef come out and talk to people at the tables too. This restaurant was a highlight of our... More
