Dining experiences in Wanaka
Savour the freshly picked fruit from the fruit stalls that line the road between Cromwell and Lake Wanaka. Cherries, apricots, apples, plums, picked straight off the nearby trees are all available in-season. A visit to the Farmers’ Markets will uncover even more delicious local produce – olive oil, walnuts, cheese, home-made pickles and preserves and cured meats as well as local arts and crafts.
The restaurants in Lake Wanaka pride themselves in using the freshest local produce and the level of cuisine rivals that of sophisticated city restaurants. Enjoy a gourmet feast overlooking the lake or perhaps a platter, laden with local cheese, salami and olives accompanied by a crisp local sauvignon blanc.
For the sweet tooth handmade organic dark Wanaka Chocolate in either Dark, Simply Orange or Mint will satisfy the strongest chocolate cravings.
