Don't even get me started on the amazing selection- there is something for everyone, even for the pickiest...of eaters! Marvellous, would come back again and again! 😊More

Great buffet selection! I like how they have a lot of choices in the buffet. They always have several options specially the dessert. We have been here twice and will come back if we visit Queenstown again. I highly recommend booking a table when you...visit Queenstown.More

We went for a family meal with our 2x teenagers on the last night we were in Queenstown. The meal was unfortunately very poor. The quality of the food was not good, very little variety, venison was cold & overcooked. Hardly any salads, no green...salads. Pasta was very dry and there was a seperate cheese sauce that you could mix together, my children said this was terrible. The soup was more like a curry than soup. There were hardly any desserts left & it was only 6.45pm when we went to the dessert counter. The service was terrible as well. After prepaying $396 for the meal, this was totally a waste of our money & we could have enjoyed a beautiful meal for less than half the price at a restaurant downtown. Very disappointed and we will not return. We thought this would be similar to Rotorua Skyline which we enjoyed but it is very different.More

Amazing views, food and cocktails! Great value for money! Staff were exceptional and shoutout to Freya who made me one of the best espresso martinis I've ever had! Will definitely be returning when I come back to Queenstown!

Took the gondola ride up the mountain and enjoyed wonderful views of Queenstown before being sat by the lovely Coco. She gave us a tour of the extensive buffet, sharing her tips on the best cuisine offered. Everything we ate was delicious, and the staff...member, Robbie, took great care of us with drinks and fun conversation. Couldn't of been happier with the service and the experience. One of the best buffets I've ever been to! Highly recommend if you're in Queenstown.More

We had dinner at the Stratosfare buffet restaurant the night before our 40th wedding anniversary. If it had been open on the actual night of our anniversary, we would have gone then. The restaurant did not open until 6:30 pm and it was a bit...of a free-for-all actually getting seated, but in honour of our anniversary we had been allocated the best table in the house with virtually a 180 degree view looking north through to south overlooking the gondola and Queenstown. It was worth the wait. We were provided with a glass of prosecco and glacé cherry free of charge in honour of our anniversary. Luca from Germany was our waiter. He was courteous and went out of his way to make us welcome and make the evening special for us. These generous touches helped make the evening for us. The buffet was extensive and delicious and we ate far too much but we had a lovely evening. Thank you all for a special evening.More

Contact the restaurant and ask them.....as u have a booking I can see little point in doing this as you have to go to the exact same place to board the gondola.
