This is a really lovely restaurant in a beautiful setting with delicious food. The artichoke soup was amazing, as was both the lamb and the duck. They were expertly presented and balanced, impressively so. I think it really is the kind of place where you're...More

The jerusalem artichoke soup was outstanding and the meringue desert was good. The lamb saddle however was very chewy. It was hard to cut and very hard to chew. It was cooked to the chef's recommendation so no excuses. Maybe the cut is normally like...More

The restaurant is very romantic and they even pay for your taxi to and from the location that is about 15 minutes drive from Queenstown. The food was very good. However, the service was very slow. The restaurant had 3-4 tables apart from us but...More

First thing to be aware of is that this is not a budget restaurant. If you are not comfortable with a sizeable bill after your meal this isn't the restaurant for you. The service is excellent - friendly, professional and prompt. Our meals were absolutely...More

My family had the same disappointing experience. The cost of the taxi ride back to town was salt on the wound as they do not provide this service on Christmas.

I am very surprised that you had that experience. Surely a word with the staff / managers and all would be made clear. If that service was not available on christmas day, I am sure that would have been made clear.
