  • Nice and large restaurant on the main road in Omarama. The restaurant has a wide variety of menu options. There is also a store selling Merino wool products and other curios.  more »
  • Very close to Highway 8, it is a very good choice for a snack on a southbound trip. Good service, good dishes and nice place.

  • Ordered a beer, a porter. It was horrible. Only took a few sips. Asked if I could get a different beer. Spoke with the owner. He asked where I was from and if I drink porters. I answered him and then he just walked away and didn’t say anything. Worst kiwi experience ever.
  • Always a great place to visit. Coffee and food spectacular. Staff and management the best.
