Fiordland, South Island, New Zealand is, by any definition on the edge of the world, so to find one of the best restaurants ever, for menu choices, quality of produce and cooking and service was a treat. This is no secret to locals and travellers who have done a bit of research before arriving in Te Anau, so booking is advised. We had to take an early booking the night we arrived. New Zealanders eat early! Must be all that fresh air and rain – it rains two days out of three in the fiordlands!
The dish I have shown above was a special where the white bait is whipped up which a savoury meringue- simply stunning. I have taken a shot of the white bait because I can't buy it at home like that.
Everything from hare, goat, lamb and home smoked Stewart Island salmon was superb. There were other restaurants in Te Anau but we booked for a return visit on our second and last night in the town so that we could work through more of the card. Fiordland is after all not exactly round the corner.
