BOTSWANA BUTCH­ERY

15/20

Good Food Guide - - Central Otago -

With cush­ioned, high-backed chairs, leather ban­quettes and roar­ing log fires, this warm and wel­com­ing space in a his­toric cot­tage on the lake­front is hard to top on a chilly south­ern evening. The menu is ex­ten­sive, with a fo­cus on game and less-comon meat of­fer­ings, plus there’s an im­pres­sive steak se­lec­tion – choose your cut, choose your sauce and bring your ap­petite. It’s strong on seafood too, with a per­fectly bal­anced prawn laksa starter a re­cent high­light, and desserts are great – think in­tensely flavoured rhubarb topped with a per­fect almond and cherry fi­nancier. The staff are friendly and pro­fes­sional, al­ways on hand to help you nav­i­gate the menu and choose a per­fect match from the com­pre­hen­sive wine list.
