This restaurant is fantastic. We have eaten here for Breakfast (the fried chicken with waffles was amazing!), lunch and dinner (the 3 hour steak is to die for). It is our go to place if we have friends visiting - reasonable prices, fantastic food, and decor that is fascinating! I love the Piano where the cutlery is kept, and the wall of Radios is great. The soup served in old cut crystal bowls is always a talking point. Ivy & Lolas is the kind of place that we just keep coming back to. We have taken foodies, chefs and non-foodies and no-one has ever been disappointed!
We visited Ivy & Lola's on New Years Day 2014...what a beautiful setting! Nestled down on the waterfront of Lake Wakatipu surrounded by scenes of snowy mountains. It was a bit chilly outside but we wanted to enjoy the view so the welcoming staff settled us under a heater and provided rugs to keep us warm. We started off with the grilled chicken option, sides of fries and onion rings, and refreshing fruit & vodka chillers, finished off with chocolate torte/raspberry coulis/white choc icecream and Frangelico Espressos. The serving sizes are massive and well worth waiting for. One thing that may put you off is a 20% surcharge on a public holiday. Absolutely delicious food and much recommended restaurant. Looking forward to our next visit!
