“A special meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 February 2012

The food was great - every course is imaginative and creative. Staff is a bit green and could be polished up a bit.

“tiny servings”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 February 2012

They are all about the creativity here, which is great, however the size of the mains was ridiculously small. When compared to other restaurants in the same price range (Botswana Butchery, Wakatipu Grill) we felt kind of ripped off.

“Best resturant in queenstown!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 January 2012

A great resturant.Food was wonderfull as was the service.Small but good wine list and not over priced.For fine dinning go here not Botswana.
Small resturant seats around 30 people. It is in a hotel and quite pleasantly surprising for a hotel resturant. You can t ake a boat from downtown, a very nice trip.

“Best fine dining experience in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 January 2012

we've had a few amazing meals at this place - if you get the chance, take advantage of the wine series dinners which are the best value for money. The bar is beautifully decorated, whilst the restaurant has lovely views too. Ben, the executive chef is not only a funny bloke but he's incredibly talented. The team under Mark Rose are professional and helpful. We LOVE this place.
