Shawty's cafe, is a cafe and restaurant in the Mackenzie Country region of the South Island of New Zealand.
The staff were so friendly and helpful, with wine and food pairing. The gnocchi had gone past the dumpling phase into mashed potato confusion but didn’t detract from the taste of the dish which was outstanding. Great night away from the kids, thanks for letting us in earlier than our booking.
Great service, great with our dietary needs, and with small children. Will definitely be back!
The set menu was a great idea. Would be great to do it once a month !
Great evening The slow cooked lamb with gnocchi was so good
Keep up the excellent food and service!
Great service Friendly staff
Les plats étaient excellents mais les desserts nous ont un peu déçu. Service agréable, en français c'est un plus pour nous.
It was distracting & noticeable when staff were drying/ working with cutlery in the bar area as we were dining.
Really great food. We ate in many acclaimed places in the South Island and Shawtys ranks right at the top even though it’s in the quiet town of Twizel. We had lamb and salmon and both were cooked to perfection and really delicious.
Menu was a tad limited (Feb 2020) however the impeccable service which included a joyous birthday song more than made up for it.
A delicious meal
Best restaurant meal I’ve eaten in NZ including Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch. Underrated.
The staff was very good coping with a big group of people
Great Variety and price
Great food and service, happy to use again
We really enjoyed our evening at Shawtys thank you!
A visit to Shawtys is always a part of our holiday in Twizel. Love the food and the atmosphere - we have been going for the last 16 years and will be visiting again soon.
Had great food of really high culinary standard. Also both had a very good glass of wine (Neudorf and Merlot) - which has been rather rare for us in NZ. Crème Brûlée was absolutely amazing. Very friendly staff. Would recommend to all.
The best meal we have had here. So tasty without being mucked around with with hot spices. Everyone at our table was very impressed. Our guests were surprised at how good it was and can hardly wait to go again next time they are in town
