Alpine dining just got a whole lot cooler at The Mezz.

Looking fresh after its summer refurbishment, The Mezz is Cardrona’s culinary crown jewel. As well as casual fine dining, this mountainside restaurant also offers stargazing tours, so you can make the most of your spectacular surroundings.

Serving breakfast, lunch, and à la carte dining in the evening, The Mezz is a superb spot to catch your breath after a hard day’s ski. The kitchen uses fresh locally sourced ingredients, and free-range produce to create Kiwi inspired dishes, whilst the Après-ski bar stocks local wines, craft beer and spirits.

The Mezz caters for all dietary requirements and has daily specials.

Located upstairs from Base Café at Cardrona Alpine Resort, The Mezz is the cherry on top of Cardrona’s snow-capped cake. A must visit for mountain-goers.

Reviews

Thank you for a very special dining experience at The Mezz. The chef produced exceptional food and the waitress gave lots of useful information about the ski resort and its facilities which we will pass on to family and friends. We highly recommend this restaurant for something different when staying in Wanaka.

Superior chef, excellent waitress. Worth the drive for the food alone but the views and watching the weather patterns was spectacular!

We didn't even know that this place was up here and open for food in the evenings, but now we do, we'd definitely return. The food was amazing, the lamb just fell apart it was so tender, and the desserts were delicious. Not only that, but we got to see a beautiful sunset from the window, and the waitress was super friendly and helpful. I'd recommend this place highly.

The Mezz was closed and the manager kindly offered a spot at The Lounge, also in the same ski resort. The food was great, amongst amazing views, and the service simply blowing us away. Highly recommended, especially after a day of mountain carting or biking here!

We really enjoyed our dinner at the Mezz, excellent service from Laura who was so lovely, and the meal was outstanding. The drive up was really fun, having never ventured up to the ski field before, the views were spectacular. Laura gave us information about all the other activities at Cardrona so we cant wait to go back for some adventure, as well as dinner at the Mezz. Thanks team for a great night

Food and service were great, however, the restaurant noted that they were not aware that a first table booking was made that evening and was not ready when we got there. Perhaps first table could review their notification process for informing the restaurants on their portal. However, despite that, the service staff were graceful and accepted our first table booking. We were even surprised with a complementary starter while they were getting their kitchen going.

Ordered the Salmon and Lamb for the mains and it was made very well. The staff were polite and service was excellent. Would recommend.

Really tasty food, I had the venison which was delicious. We had visitors staying so thought this was a great opportunity to show them skifield, views and great food. We were the only guests, which seemed strange but waitress was very friendly.

This was my first time up Cadrona and the views were stunning. My friend and I were very impressed with the standard of the food. Our whole meal was sensational, especially the steak.

The rib eye steak with duck fat fried potato were delicious . A friend enjoy her burger she ordered from the bar menu too. Good service and we had a nice view of the CAT working on the slopes.

The experience was fantastic. The food was impeccable. Especially the black truffle pappardelle and rib eye steak. We arrived earlier than the time and they allowed us to eat early. Customer service was really good. Would definitely return.

This was a great experience going up the mountain and the terrific view on the way.seeing the building without snow was unusual. The staff were fantastic food was good but not a very big menue .Children's menu needs chicken nuggets.The 50% off food was great and we ordered more food than normal. We will go again when in the area.
