Food & Wine


The Mount Rolleston Restaurant

Snow-capped mountains provide a magnificent backdrop to superb food, wine & service. Our chefs proudly celebrate New Zealand ingredients and specialise in carefully prepared fresh local food.

The Mt Rolleston Restaurant

Our speciality is fresh farm produce. We offer 'Wilderness Lodge Lamb' as an option every second night. This top quality merino-hampshire cross lamb is raised with care on the property. Our menus also feature bacon, ham, eggs, manuka honey and herbs off the Wilderness Lodge Farm.

  • “Super Place!”


    It would be impossible to find a more attentive and dedicated staff. The entire lodge was fantastic. The restaurant and food were above first class. The hiking was fantastic, as were the guided trips. Our favorite was the sheep dog and shearing demo!

  • “The New Zealand you imagined.”


    If you are looking for nature experiences where you can hike without seeing another person, excellent food, and a comfortable place to sleep, then the Wilderness Lodge is for you. This was our favorite place in all of NZ.
