Located in Peppers Clearwater Resort, The Lakes Restaurant offers locally sourced ingredients and some of New Zealand's best wine and stunning views. What more could you want?

It's a modern restaurant flooded with natural light, courtesy of its generous windows that overlook the majestic view of the lake with mountains on the horizon. It's a classy spot with plenty of 'wow' factor. And we haven't even got to the food!

Sample some of the finest ingredients for starter, main and dessert. Their starters include a free-range pork belly, marinated calamari and a warm duck rillette from the Canter Valley. For mains, culinary excellence reigns supreme with the Southland lamb rump, Canterbury Angus sirloin and market fish of the day. There's also an artichoke risotto and vegetable gnocchi for the veggies among you.

Now...there's nothing left to do but unwind with a bottle of award-winning wine. It's a tough life.

What an atmosphere. It was a fantastic dining experience from the moment we entered into the restaurant. Friendly staff and the food was definitely a 10 on 10.

My wife and I both started with Smoked Fish and Clam Chowder which we enjoyed very much. Unusually for us we both chose the same main dish of Pan Fried Orange Roughy which was cooked to perfection and came served with seared scallops, tomato salsa and vegetables. The fillets of fish were large and presented beautifully. This dish was enjoyed thoroughly by us both. Next time we go back we will definitely try a dessert as we found that we had eaten enough after our starters and mains. Thank you for a lovely evening, the atmosphere of the restaurant is wonderful and we look forward to going during summer to see the view of the lake.

First time we dined at Lakes Restaurant and were treated like a VIP. The atmosphere was relaxed, music not loud. I will definitely recommend friends to have a great experience like we had. Thanks to all staff you are doing an excellent job, food to die for don't miss out!

We were thrilled to be able to get a voucher for the Lakes restaurant. The four of us had an amazing experience. The quality and generosity of the food was awesome. I have read some unkind comments on trip advisor but our experience was amazing. Congratulations to staff and management. We had entrees, main meals and desserts. All different. No one could fault any of the food. If this sounds like a rave review.... It is! Great night. Thanks

It was our first time to the place.
Although it was a wet day and we couldn't go to the outdoor seating, the view and ambience were awesome.
We loved the seafood chowder, salmon and plum/apple crumble that we ordered.
Would definitely go back to try the dinner menu!

The food was amazing! We tried entrees, mains and desserts and loved everything. Staff were very friendly. Would be a beautiful place to dine during the daylight or in summer as it’s on the lake.
We had a little trouble locating at there’s isn’t much signage and we haven’t been to Clearwater before.
