Great selection of cocktails with a lovely warm atmosphere. Enjoyed a scotch before dinner here with a few small plates to set us up for dinner. Great place to take a partner for a cosy drink.

Blue Kanu is a very popular restaurant in Queenstown. We like to eat early ( around 6pm) & have had little difficulty in getting a table at that time. Advise you book.
