The food was stunning however the service was patchy, especially when it got busy. Decor was nice, but far too loud. Overall, they really need some more staff and training.

Nothing better than people watching ... and sitting in Eichardt's Bar watching just about anyone that visits Queenstown - walk down the promenade was extremely entertaining. Great atmosphere inside with the big cosy furniture to nestle into! Great wines and service - and very tasty...More

We stopped in for a light evening meal of tapas- service was friendly and efficient. We both had a cocktail each followed by tapas and a mini cheeseboard. All delicious. Bar is on waterfront with great view over lake. Great location and food!

visited 3 separate times for breakfast and each time the food and service was fantastic. my favourites were the hot salmon and the apple porridge and such a lovely environment with the open fire and smaller dinning area.

We chose to have breakfast here and it was lovely. Good coffee. Fabulous decore and free range bacon which I appreciated as it allowed me to have bacon and eggs! Would definitely recommend.

Cosy hole in the wall with fireplace, limited menu, reasonably priced food, expensive drinks. Seating is not very comfortable for longer visits and service is patchy. Struggles when busy.More
