Naturally Fiordland, Te Anau

62 Town Centre
Te Anau,
Southland 9600

Naturally Fiordland is on the main street of Te Anau, known logically as Town Centre.

Both inside and out the feel was relaxed and cafe style, with a net over the ceiling and some great photo's hanging on the walls.

It was pretty quiet when we visited with only a few tables occupied.

We perused the menu, which offered Italian style pizza and pasta dishes, and then ordered at the counter, despite how quiet it was there was a reasonable wait before we got our meals.

The penne pasta was served with olives, roasted red peppers, pine nuts, pesto and parmesan. The small sliced olives were the only disappointing aspect of an otherwise good dish.

I had the funghi pizza, which was wood fired but had a very crispy base, which seemed to use a different dough to the more authentic Italian style pizzerias. There was also just a bit too much cheese in the topping mix for my preferences.

While the waitresses were both friendly, they didn't seem particularly focused, with tables left uncleared and a general feel of slight disorganisation. The vibe was relaxed and it was a pleasant place to dine in. Naturally Fiordland is a fair spot to have a casual meal if you are in town.
