Great Food and Service! We can highly reccomand the restaurant!
Relaxed, friendly and great food!
We came here for dinner with 11 other people after getting married on Thursday. The table was set up perfectly, the service was great and very accommodating. We loved that we had a private area to ourselves. Every single person enjoyed their meal which is usually difficult to achieve with a large group. Thank you again so much, it was the perfect ending to our perfect day.
Fantastic food and service. Out catering and would recommend to all.
C est un des meilleurs repas que nous avons fait en 3 semaines de voyage. Le saumon fumé était excellent, les pâtes qui l accompagnaient étaient bien cuites et la sauce très bonne et pas grasse. Si on veut changer de la nourriture frite et manger du poisson frais, c est la bonne adresse et pour un prix raisonnable. Très bon accueil, la serveuse,française, était charmante.
Had a great meal here on our two night stop over in Twizel. We both really loved the whole meal -especially the salmon and squid linguine!! Thanks!
We really enjoyed our dinner. There were lots of choices, our food was very tasty, and service was good. We are outside and it was a bit cool, but the temperature inside was too high for us.
Great food and atmosphere. Friendly and welcoming staff who went out of their way to accommodate our needs.
Wonderful food. Very helpful staff. Really enjoyed our meal. Many thanks
Portion sizes were tiny. Was disappointed I had to order a starter, main and dessert and still did not find myself full- had to go back to my accommodation afterwards still hungry. Food while lacking in quantity was delicious
We had an excellent meal, especially the dessert where my husband asked to have the chocolate mousse and berry coulis without the crepe but with ice-cream. This didn’t seem any bother and we much appreciate this. The wine too was very good indeed. One waitress was very good; the other was slightly not with it, we thought, though pleasant enough.
Wonderful food and great service!!
Great service and the food was excellent
Great service and delicious food thanks.
Friendly, helpful staff especially as my husbands credit card was declined.(Bank has closed it down due to unusual activity, great but embarrassing). Staff were very understanding while we got it sorted. We will be back.
Food was exceptional our guests were very impressed
Really lovely meal. Would definitely recommend for dinner. Food was 5 star Didn’t realize that the only ID you accepted was NZ drivers license or passport so couldn’t order a drink. A reminder of this on the website when booking would have been great.
It would be beneficial if an allergy key was provided on menu. Those with an allergy don't like to make a fuss so a simple listing saves needing to ask on items or getting surprised on items that the allergen is not expected in. These lists of allergens are standard in restaurants and cafes across Scandinavia and much of Europe.
we had a wonderfull night at shawtys,everything was just perfekt. thank you. sabine
Divine!! All four guests enjoyed their meals;) cheers team
Delicious food and nice atmosphere. The staff really friendly and helpful.
Best coffee in Twizel, very professional staff (and management) Loved eating there from the day it opened!!
Great food and service. Came back for coffee the next day
Thanks for the delicious meals. Our group of 5 really enjoyed the food and atmosphere.
Very impressed with this restaurant. The food was exquisite. The service improved as the night went on, or we were more tolerant of the young ladies who served us, who were a wee bit abrupt to begin with (possibly a cultural difference???) . However, the food was absolutely top notch. From our entrees, mains to the desserts. Fantastic
