A window table overlooking Lake Wakatipu is worth booking ahead for, since the views of the lake and mountains would be quite stunning no matter what the season. The multicultural buffet-style selections should cover most tastes including vegetarian. However, despite its setting and location, at the top of Rydges Lakeside, the fare isn't all that special considering NZ$79 price per head before wine.

Unless you're staying at Rydges, then parking can be a problem during a busy tourist season with the street outside full as well as the forecourt. However, it is still a great place to eat, if just for the atmosphere and the view.

By far the best buffet in Queenstown. Different every time we’ve been as they change the menu daily with what fresh produce they have.
Not a massive range of food but still a decent amount of options and everything is full of flavour.
Steak to order is great and also the pizza and dumplings.
Dessert bar is amazing!
The only thing I would like more of is range of salads or build your own salad bar.

Nice food with load of varieties. The staff are very nice. My partner tried almost everything and love all of it. The views are astonishing but it started to rain.

We dinned here on Monday night as two couples and had a wonderful time. The food is very high quality and plentiful. We wanted to make sure our experience was not rushed and ensured we ate food in the right order and took our time. We were in bazaar for 2.5 hours and we were never rushed by the waitresses! Amazing food and great atmosphere. We arrived for our table early so we went to the bar next door called reds(i think). Amazing views and beautiful food. Just take your time and don't pile loads of food at once on your plate. We were a group of 4 (so two couples) and each course we made platters for the middle of our table to share! My fav was the Asian platter with dumplings!
Thanks you for a wonderful evening x

The restaurant is nicely styled, the staff are really knowledgable and polite, and the views are amazing.
The marketplace style concept doesn't really work though - while there is a huge variety of food on offer and it is of a very good quality, it is a glorified all you can eat buffet.
We tried to spread out the courses as much as we could, but the whole meal (we made it a 4 course) was still over in 40 minutes and we were left feeling we had not really had an experience, just a quick meal.
I work in the hospitality industry and understand that they wanted to go with something quirky as befitting the nature of the hotel, but this is not offering anything new and exciting, it's just a very well presented buffet.
I guess it's a good option for a very relaxed meal but relatively expensive meal, but I don't think it's good value for a nice evening meal.
