About The Lake House NZ
Set on the edge of Lake Hood with stunning views across the lake to the alps. Casual dining during the day with options of set menus for more formal dining during the day and evening
Really good food.a Great atmosphere and the service was welcoming and friendly- will be back
Great conference venue - very attentive service, only distraction was loud music playing outside of room at times during the day
The sticky date pudding is amazing and the seafood chowder is the best in town
The Lake House was a fantastic venue for our function. Great food and excellent service made for a great evening - thanks so much!
Me and my friends really enjoyed our day. The food was super yum, serviced was great. And the place is awesome. Highly recommended.
The food and drink selection was good but you ran out of light heinekin beer.We enjoyed the privacy of the galleon room and all the guests spoke very highly of the food and customer service. A great day out had by all. Regards Joe
Good communication regarding the booking and confirmation. Thank you we enjoyed our visit.
Everything went well and Pam and the other staff were great. Thank you
A very enjoyable night.Staff were friendly and efficient.The meals were presented well and tasted accordingly.A great place to go for an upmarket dining experience.
Not offered a second drink. Otherwise great place great service
I was really excited to try this restaurant in such a prime location. Unfortunately, it let me down in service and food quality. I booked for 2 adults and a child and had to request a child's menu after being seated for a while. The menu sounded great however did not taste very good. I ordered the garlic loaf which was so oily to the point we didn't eat it. I also had the seafood chowder which did have some large pieces of seafood in it but not a lot else flavour wise. The dessert, however, was well presented and tasted good. Overall I found it overrated and overpriced pub food with a good view. If I were to return for the view though I would take a picnic.
Was lovely, but the food could be better
Fantastic venue for our recent Dairy Women’s Network dinner. Delicious food, friendly service and lovely atmosphere by the fire.
My Mum, Daughter and I had a fabulous time. The $5 kids meal with an adult meal during the holidays was a great incentive to drive up from Timaru for a day out. My only criticism was that the crackers on my child's kids platter were chewy and stale, but overall a great experience and we will be back, thank you
great friendly service
Very slow service....we waited over an hour for our meal, when it finally arrived it was almost worth the wait!..... could not fault the meal, beautiful food.
Service wasn’t the best which is a shame as it’s a beautiful setting .
The service was simply outstanding! The meals were divine... albeit small and expensive. It was a great meal to help up celebrate a special occasion for our family!
Very limited menu, particularly for vegetarians.
we had our sons 21st at lake house the event was run extremely well. we had planks which were outstanding and great value for all. our guest all were very impressed. thank you for organizing an outstanding night for us all
Food was great, service was great and loved the fire on a winters day.
Good service, food tasty and well presented. We were early but had been offered drinks and food without waiting. Thank you
Lovely meal and great to have the menu changing so frequently
Great night for great food had 2 Aucklanders with our group they were impressed Please keep the DUCK on the menu
Lovely setting but we were very disappointed with the food. Three of our party had the fish and chips and felt that the local fish and chip shop served better food at less than a third of the price. The batter was too hard and the meal simply tasted as if it had been heated in a microwave. While the lamb shanks were tender, they were tasteless. The quantity of the duck meal was lacking. Overall we felt we had paid far too much for very mediocre food. The wine was overpriced. The desserts were okay but could have been half the volume and half the price.
