A MODERN FRENCH AFFAIR

Whatever reservations you may have about the French, their cuisine is what makes it all worthwhile. Bistro Gentil brings the delights of French gastronomy to the beautiful shores of Lake Wanaka and of course, some decent Gallic wines too.

Led by award winning chef James Stapley, with Mario Rodrigues as Head Chef, we revisit typical flavour combinations using fresh in-season ingredients from our kitchen garden and the best of our region. Cardrona lamb, Aoraki salmon, Canter valley duck... 

Our menus combine the best of New Zealand produce cooked French style - à la française, with a modern twist. Join us to sample house made spreads and wines rarely offered by the glass. In addition to our carefully picked wine list, we offer 24 wines by the glass and tasters through our Enomatic self-dispensing wine machines.

Come for the food, the wine, the art, the view, a game of pétanque… We hope Bistro Gentil becomes a special place for you.

À bientôt!
