Wonderful atmosphere, warm hospitality, delicious dishes. The Mt Edward Pinot Noir was a perfect match for the venison. The best restaurant in Arrowtown.

We have dined at PostMasters many times since 2015. It IS our favourite go to restaurant in all of the Wakatipu Basin... Food and service is impeccable... Excellent ambience in Winter with fire going and lighting is perfect..... A World Class Pinot Noir is a must with your meal .... Phil And Bex - Locals

We had an outside table where we could watch the world go by.
Irish waitress was really friendly and so were the other staff and chef.
Great meals (falafels in particular) and good sized portions.
A local favourite.

Had a lovely 2 course meal, restaurant very quiet and waiting staff attentive. Perhaps checked too many times that food was ok. Once with the main course is enough.

Great friendly welcome to the beautiful and historic restaurant in Arrowtown. Given a choice of seating and chose to sit out front. Great atmosphere overlooking the main street. The food was okay, very eatable but not great! Would recommend anyone to try this restaurant.

The waitress was super friendly right from when we arrived. She was attentive and helpful. The entrees (cheese puffs, pop corn prawns) were really good, cheese puffs could always do with my cheese :). Mains (fish of the day, vegetarian risotto)were well cooked. The risotto was definitely the winner and was really good, the fish of the day (salmon) was nicely cooked but could have done with some sort of sauce to go with the vegetables it came with as it was quite dry and potato pieces could have been smaller. All in all, we enjoyed it and will be back :)

Our group of four were celebrating a special family anniversary, and we all thoroughly enjoyed our time at The Postmaster's Residence.

The restaurant environment itself is special, located in a lovely old house. There is seating available both inside and outside. We sat outside at a lovely table on the front verandah.

The staff were very attentive and friendly, and helped to make our dining experience as amazing as the food that was presented to us. My husband said that the ribeye steak meal was the best that he had ever had!

We would definitely highly recommend this restaurant to others, and can't wait to go back again.

As always the Postmasters was a good choice. Too hot to sit outside unfortunately but we enjoyed it just the same. Staff are lovely and friendly. Menu had changed since our last visit. Steak was delicious!! We had kids with us and they were very good with the kids.
