  • Skyline Restaurant.

    4 out of 5 stars

    Queenstown Restaurants

    If ever you need an excuse for a food feast indulgence then I would happily recommend the Skyline Restaurant buffet. Each night they serve up an impressive smorgasbord specialising in fresh, local produce and while your feast you are also treated to the most spectacular night views of Queenstown. The buffet begins at 5:45pm and you will need to...

    Dunedin Restaurants

    The Palms Restaurant is set in a older style building,looking out at the Queens Garden. We booked in for my daughter's 18th birthday and ate the most delicious food. The presentation, taste,quantity and staff are to be recommended. This is a 5star plus restaurant in Dunedin. I'd recommend you try here and won't be disappointed. I tried the NZ Lamb....

  • The Cow Restaurant

    4 out of 5 stars

    Queenstown Restaurants

    The Cow Restaurant is a local pizza and spaghetti house and the menu has remained unchanged since 1976. They hand roll their own pizza bases and make their own breads. It's a bit of an insitution and well known to the locals who come back again and again. I would recommend making a booking as it remains very well patronised. The Cow Restaurant...

  • Fergburger

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Queenstown Restaurants

    They have a lot of variesties burgers to choose from. Great taste, great value of money and all the staffs are friendly too. Avoid the peak hours during lunch as they are always long waits outside the restaurant. They also have b/fast time from 5.30am till about 9am. Make sure you grab a burger from Fergburger when you drop by Queenstown.

    Great location on the Steamer's Wharf, and if the weather permits, sit outside and take in the views and activities. The menu is wide and something for almost everyone. Coffee is great, an important factor these days! Staff were very friendly and obliging, making my visit an alround great time. Fast service. I was here for breakfast and...

  • Boardwalk Seafood Restaurant & Bar

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Queenstown Restaurants

    Superb! Superb! Superb! This is a great place for seafood meals if you have some dollars to spend. Although the food is superb I think this is topped by the location. From the upstairs floor right on the waterfront you have great views over Lake Wakatipu and the peaks on the opposite side of the lake. In the evening it is even romantic to have...

  • Aggy's Shack

    Queenstown Restaurants

    Literally a shack on the waterfront but seriously good fresh fish and chips with a gorgeous view of Lake Wakatipu and mountains. Aggy's Shack serves generous portions of freshly cooked fish and chips equal to any I have eaten anywhere. Tasty moist fish in a light batter, and great crispy chips. The owner is a trained chef from Sweden and his...

  • Dux de Lux

    4 out of 5 stars

    Queenstown Restaurants

    A homey kind of brewpub in Queenstown, also has a location in Christchurch. Beer was great! It was a miserable rainy day when we went and our bartender was out chopping wood for the fire inside. Sure it gets lively at night, but really liked it for a late lunch. We went on half price pizza day so we had the Roast Chicken: bacon, Camembert and Plum...

  • Golden Elephant

    Queenstown Restaurants

    Not only is the quality of the food very good in this Thai restaurant, also the service is super friendly and prompt, the atmosphere warm and welcoming, and finally you even have views over Lake Wakatipu, as the restaurant is located on the first floor of a Beach Street building, just off Steamers Wharf. As you can imagine, there are an incredible...

  • Speights Ale House

    4 out of 5 stars

    Queenstown Restaurants

    A more upscale brewery restaurant. You can either stop in for a pint in the front room and watch some rugby or have a nicer dinner in the back (we chose this on our first night because it was by the fire and it was cold outside) Fish & Chips. Typical, but it was a huge portion and absolutely delicious.

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Having studied Interior Design, I really appreciated Monty's unique decor. In keeping with the mining history of Queenstown Monty's Pub is decorated using natural materials, and my favorite,a representation of a mine shaft. You can read more about the unique design at the following website: http://www.mountswire.co.nz/feature_1.shtml Monty's Pub is...

  • Lonestar Cafe & Bar

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    Queenstown Restaurants

    The Lone Star – full name: Lone Star Café & Rattlesnake Bar – is listed as a place which serves large and hearty meals. So no fine dining but filling empty stomachs. I know many people who already have enough when they see such portions piled on mega-sized plates. I would not waste money and order a starter, as the mains are huge, and not cheap....

  • Avanti Restaurant

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    Queenstown Restaurants

    Small and cozy with great lake views and a nice open fire, great when you have just come off the mountains skiing in the winter. In the summer lunch in the courtyard. This is a great way to enjoy some excellent Eichardt's hospitality without the expense of staying at the hotel. The food is great and changes regularly, the wine list is very local...

  • Pig & Whistle Bar & Restaurant

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    Queenstown Restaurants

    There are no shortage of this style of pubs in NZ, but this one has the added bonus of offering lunch specials of bangers & mash and pea pie pud on the cheap. Food was decent, nice outdoor space. Nice selection of beers. I tried the BLAT which had really fresh avocado & tomato even though it was late fall, but I think the bangers & mash was much...

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Queenstown Restaurants

    Joes garage in Queenstown is a great spot for breakfast lunch or just tea/coffee as we did Tea at $3.30 was tea as usual but service was very good and friendly. There's a buzzy vibe and American diner type feel with oldy music Free half hour wifi too

  • Les Alpes

    Queenstown Restaurants

    I stepped inside of this restaurant and felt like I was the one speaking a foreign language...in an English speaking country! This isn't a negative, the inside of this restaurant felt like I was transported to the French Alps. Service was super friendly, all in all a delightful restaurant.

  • TSS Earnslaw

    Queenstown Restaurants

    When you're on a cruise with the TSS Earnslaw, stay away frim the onboard cafe. It's overpriced, like everything else in Queenstown, and it's not even good. I had latte and a savoury muffin, $9. Alright, the muffin was big, and sort of worth the price, but it was simply to huge. The latte was horrible, a black coffe with milk would have tasted...

  • Sombreros Mexican Cantina

    Queenstown Restaurants

    For a laid back but hearty Mexican meal - head down Sombreros - with plenty of tequila available (not that I had any on that day), good company and conversation - its a good place to chill out for a bite or a snack .. The nachos - ask for spicy - no need for any additional condiments

    This restaurant in the little town of Moeraki – near the Moeraki Boulders – has won so many awards that you will never be alone there. When we finally made it there were dozens of domestic and international visitors enjoying coffees, cakes, and meals. As it was a lovely day most guests were sitting at one of the many tables in the sun, and on the...

  • Great Choice and Friendly Service

    If you are looking for breakfast or a quick snack this is a great place to go and get your food. You have to find a place to eat it somewhere else as it is just a small shop but the selection of breads, rolls and cakes is fabulous, and the service super friendly. We especially liked the lady who every time we went there around Christmas time wore...

  • Very Distinctive Flavours

    We chose the takeaway option of this restaurant several times when we stayed at an apartment nearly next door, and we were delighted with the nice flavours every time. For takeaway food it is rather expensive but well worth the money.

    Even if you do not intend to take a meal - take a break at the Cardrona Hotel! It is so unique that you should at least have a drink at one of the rustic tables or at the bar. Although it has been refurbished some years ago it has kept its charm of a time long gone-by. And it is much bigger than it looks from the outside.The darkish inside of the...

  • Great pies

    The queues and the delicious smell of fresh baking tell you the Arrowtown Bakery is just the place to stop to pick up a quick snack or a light lunch - just don't leave it too late on a busy day, they can be hard pressed to keep up with the demand for their excellent pies and pastries - especially the real specialities such as their venison pie,...

  • New Zealand's best?

    Lunch or dinner - stay in Arrowtown and you can enjoy both at Saffron - reputedly one of the best restaurants (some would say THE best) in the region, if not the country. We were staying in Wanaka and didn't fancy the night drive so opted for lunch - and very good it was too. It was a beautiful autumn day so we sat outside to eat and watch the...

    Mt Difficulty Winery is sent on the hillface looking over some beautiful vistas, typical of Central Otago.The restaurant is really nice, small, but lovely inside with amazing views. Summertime you can sit outside on the balcony, which is really nice. But obviously way down here in the South, the weather is often not so good. But inside is warm and...
