Escape to this stunning lakefront cafe for outstanding food and wine.

Just a short walk from the famous Wanaka Tree, surrounded by beautiful mountains, Wineglass Cafe provides a dreamy location for lakefront dining.

Enjoy a light lunch or sumptuous dinner from their seasonal menu.

Casey Ripper

We arrived to warm smiles and a very polite waitress, the service through the entire evening was impeccable and the atmosphere was calm and relaxing, something that is hard to find around Wanaka.
Although the wine list was incredible we opted for the mulled wine and it was beauitful. We both ordered the beetroot risotta with haloumi, made with Carnaroli rice which made the texture rich and satisfying, simply the best risotto we have ever had.
Thankyou for the great night, we will definitely recommend to our friends and will be returning very soon :)

This was our first booking with first table and love the concept. Our meal at Wineglass Cafe Edgewater was amazing. We chose the shared slow cooked lamb shoulder which was generously sized and perfectly cooked with large serve of tasty vegetables. Very impressed with the meal presentation and with our attentive wait staff. The location is perfect overlooking the lake. During our 2 weeks in Wanaka we twice enjoyed morning tea with delicious freshly baked scones at Edgewater. Loved the warm open fire.

Grazing platter was very generous with something to suit all tastes. Slow roasted lamb shoulder was a winner with the meat loving boys! Huge serving would easily feed three.

We had a really lovely meal, steak was delicious but my real favourite was the walnut and blue cheese salad, it was packed with yummy things. Roaring fire creates a cosy atmosphere.

Food is good. Menu is slightly different than last time we came. My confit dock let is awesome. Salmon croquettes were delicious. I love the combination of seaweed with pork belly. Our server Eama is really friendly and helpful, with smile all the time even it’s busy in restaurant. Thumbs up!! Will definitely recommend to dine in.

Our first time for dinner dining at Edgeware and we were impressed. Half price food (thanks First Table), but full menu to select from (with one minor exception). The food was absolutely delicious, cooked and presented to perfection, and the service was delightful. And the Lake Wanaka and mountain views... A perfect night, thank you.
