We upgraded to the premium option and we weren't disappointed! A window seat looking out was awesome! The food was pretty decent, with the sushi hub being delicious! We got the wine and dine package which included a bottle of wine. Definitely a must do!

I would recommend the Haka show and doing the gondola ride and going for a drink. The restaurant is overpriced, the food isn't good, it is so busy with lots of rude people pushing around the buffet. 100's of better places to eat in Queenstown....More

Nice lounge bar with great views. Only downside is that the gondola mechanics get in the way. Poor design.

Yes there are stores, luge rides, a souvineer store at the top to help tick the time away and a kiwi sanctuary at the bottom near the gondola. The gondola departs very close from the center of town too - you're not going... More

Located high above Queenstown with panoramic views of Lake Wakatipu and the Remarkables mountain range, Skyline Queenstown's restaurant is one of the most popular dining experiences in New Zealand - catering for up to 620 guests each night.

Guests are able to watch as Stratosfare's expert chefs prepare dishes using some of New Zealand's finest produce at interactive cooking stations. Further enhancing the overall guest experience is the inclusion of a mussel bar, where New Zealand green-lipped mussels are served hot to diners. A central feature of Stratosfare is a purpose-built rotisserie oven where guests can see locally-sourced chicken, beef and lamb cooked before their eyes. A tempting dessert display featuring a vast array of decadent sweet treats is the perfect end to a dining experience. Lunch open from 12.00Pm until 2.00Pm. Dinner reservations available: Early sitting from 5.45Pm till 6.30Pm (tables must be vacated by 7.45Pm) Late sitting from 8.15Pm to 8.45Pm (no time limit) Contact
