Nice to sit inside with the fireplace or outside with a rug overlooking the beautiful lake view. Great for a pre or post dinner drink.

We scored ourselves a seat near the window and watched the sunset while drinking wine. We then ordered tapas which were nice, not outstanding, but still pretty good. I would recommend the calamari.

The drinks and food are very expensive, but the quality was pretty good. The most expensive martini only filled about 2/3 of the glass, while the lychee martini was quite flavorful. The NZ Pinot flight was tasty and had 3 wines that showed a bit...More

Classy and yet modern. Cool and yet not crowded. Directly at the busiest street of Queenstown and yet most people walk past by it. An OUTSTANDING cocktail quality and really excellent tapas at the same time. The best chowder we had; the best lamb chops...More
