Everything about Big Fig is ace. The quality of the food, the choices on offer, the baristas know what they're doing, the friendly staff and the price. Just go there! You will not regret it. I only wish there was a Big Fig in Auckland.

It is normally hard to find somewhere that has good quality food at a great price. Counter food options with hot and cold options makes it a perfect quick stop off for lunch or dinner. Eat in or take away. Have a licence so can...purchase alcoholic drinks also. Casual, quick and easy. If you live in Queenstown this place should be your everyday stop by. You can’t even buy the raw ingredients for the dishes on offer here. Delicious and substantial- I will be back when I next visit Queenstown.More

Went in for lunch and what a treat! Very unique offering with a bowl you could choose 1 of 2 meat dishes and 4 Vege or salad choices to accompany it. YUM. I selected the beef cheeks accompanied by Kumara au gratin, roasted beetroot, Crunchy...courgettes and green beans all for only $12!! What a bargain for absolutely awesome food. Larger bowl available but the small bowl I had was a tummy filler for sure.More

Tried slow cooked beef cheek with pumpkin tagine, Roasted brocoli, carrots and onions with roast potatoes along with kale and quinoa salad. Loved the pumpkin Tagine but the rest were a major let down. They did now live up to the TripAdvisor rating they have....I don't think I'll come back again.More

Delicious food! My brother served Big Fig at his wedding, the food was divine. Months later I went to the restaurant to try it, it's a great place, the food is great and the staff are sweet.

Fantastic fare at very good prices. Go on meat free Monday, you won't regret it! Shame we didn't stay longer in Queenstown, I would have been a regular.

Awesome selection of veg/vegan food. We chose the medium bowl for buffet option and was very filling. Great coffee and enjoyed the sparkling water on tap too!
