To dine at Moraine Lodge is to savour the tastes of nature. Step into an uncomplicated world where food is real, the soil, air and water are pure and your dining experience is designed to honour those elements to the fullest.
Located at Mt Cook Lakeside Retreat, the cuisine is rooted in what comes from their large vegetable garden and the local suppliers of the region. Guests have described their dining experience there as “foodie heaven.” The cuisine playfully wanders the line between refined and rugged, borrowing from both fine dining and simple whole foods defined by freshness and the natural seasons. Their specialities are local salmon, high country lamb rack, Fiordland venison and NZ beef and seasonal vegetables.
Explore the foodie happenings around the Retreat, roll up your sleeves to participate, or just observe and enjoy time in the Retreat’s idyllic garden or bustling kitchen with our chef. All dietary preferences and requirements can be accommodated.
A warm welcome is also extended to guests not staying at the Retreat who wish to reserve a private dining experience at Moraine Lodge for your group of four or more people. Bookings are essential and can be made via email. You can also book a stargazing tour at Pukaki Wine Cellar & Observatory, located on the same property.
The team are continually innovating to bring you fresh, exciting menus and experiences at Moraine Lodge.
