After a recommendation from a friend we booked a dinner here. Had a cute atmosphere and the staff could not have been nicer. The food was very slow. It was Tapas style. So while not overly busy, it took ages for even the first course to arrive. It had a relaxed feel but could have been a little faster. Our... More

This restaurant is well hidden down a pretty pedestrianised lane in the heart of Queenstown. It has an unassuming but inviting exterior and definitely does not attract patrons who want a loud night partying (thankfully). It is an elegant restaurant with a lovely menu of cocktails and sharing plates, both were excellent. Between a group of five we had 5... More

Went for a drink after having dinner. They have fresh fruit, herbs and a ton of booze. Had a pretty great old fashioned there. We didn't not try anything else.

We were looking for a nice dinner and we found it here at No. 5 Church Lane. We decided to have the chef prepared dinner for $50 NZ and it was spectacular. Lots of food for what turned out to be $50/pp. Would eat there again!

There were only two other couples inside the restaurant when we were there. Many of the other breakfast spots are jam packed - so it was nice to find somewhere quiet. The food and service were good.

My partner and I spent a short time here. It's great for the price we paid definitely. We both got exactly the same. Buttermilk pancakes, with apple purée, cinnamon mascapone, berry coulis, and maple syrup. The pancakes were amazing. Although my partner and I love drowning pancakes in maple syrup we were a bit worried when we only got a... More

Hungry on a Sunday morning, this place is empty - I don't know why. Great coffee, very friendly service and the eggs were perfect. Nice outdoor seating if warm enough. No views but equally no half std food that establishments think you can settle for just because you can see mountains or the lake. Really good find.

We have dined here previously some three years ago and this time decided to give it another try- we were delighted to find the food beautifully presented - tasty and in lovely surroundings in their back restaurant room . We will return here
