Hearty food prepared in season

Rustic high country home cooked fare is the order of the day in our restaurant.


In the countryside food takes on a new significance, with local produce used to create meals fitting for active days in the outdoors. We cater for all appetites and offer a range of tempting home cooked dishes, freshly prepared, reflecting the seasons and the weather. The focus is on simple, hearty dishes with gluten free, vegan and vegetarian options available. Home baked treats are available all day alongside delicious coffees, teas, local craft beers and award-winning wines.


Start off your day with one of our wide range of healthy options to prepare you for top of the lake adventures. Choose from something light, such as toasted muesli with yogurt and fruit, through to a full English or vegetarian breakfast. Customise your meal with a great selection of sides.

There's no better place for lunch than the deck at Kinloch Lodge. After enjoying the scenic drive from Queenstown, visitors can enjoy scrumptious meals while drinking in the view. From our incredible wild venison stew to homemade soup and salad, there is something for everyone.
