We had such an enjoyable dinner - thank you Botswana and Lauren our waitress. The food was delicious, perfectly cooked and beautifully presented. Lauren was so lovely, informative and attentive. A great evening - always one of our favourites!
Amazing experiance, market leading fine dining experiance. You dont come here for a salad. The bavette was tender, I asked for rare but the recommendation was medium rare, and it was delicious. The rib on bone was huge and the lady had the half duck,...tender and rich flavoured. 3 desserts to share and once advised, they were tabled in the middle and all of us got a plate and 4 utensils each for the 3 dishes. Luxury service. Our only challenge we ordered the tomato and buffalo mozeralla because it said green beans in it but it must have been a light mix. If you want greens ask for a suggestion. A week in Queenstown doing casual, one night with something smart and fine finished the week just right.More
Expectations were high but were well and truly exceeded. It was a quiet Wednesday afternoon so the staff may have had a bit more time on their hands than usual but they were all so friendly and helpful. The house designed Spritzes were a highlight,...perfect for a hot Central Otago day. As I am now a glutard I was well catered for in terms of GF options. Yes, it's pricey, particularly if you venture on to the wine list but it's worth it. It is the complete dining experience you expectMore
Right from the start we were blown away with the service. The staff were warm and inviting and made us feel very welcome.
Had an amazing seat inside with a beautiful view of the lake in the worlds most comfortable chairs.
The food was incredible....An amazing balance of flavours. The Atlantic Scallops just melted in your mouth. Each course we were taken on a taste extravaganza. You will not be disappointed we certainly weren’t.
Amazing cocktails Africity was a beautiful drink. There were so many I would have loved to have tried.
