We had dinner at Captain's table for my mother in laws birthday (6 people including two small children). We had a large secluded table at the back, just right for the occasion. The seats are very comfortable, the atmosphere just right and the restaurant warm and inviting. The staff are fantastic, friendly and accommodating (knowing we were celebrating a table,... More

We had a lovely, but very long day traveling to the Milford Sound and wanted a quiet spot. Captain's was perfect. We shared delicious Bluff Oysters, the fantastic Green Lip Mussels in a perfect garlicky broth and perfectly done calamari in a spicy aioli. Great wine selection. Our neighbors also raved about their lamb and wish meals. Great service! Thank... More

Wondering the Queenstown mall and attracted by the menu. Bluff oysters are no doubt a fantastic entree and seafood chowder is good choice also. Had the pork belly as main, very soft and juicy but the cracker a bit hard for me. Pork rib portion is huge, if it can come with extra sauce will be better, coleslaw is very... More

The place is warm and friendly if a little tight with tables closely packed in. My wife had the steak and it was outstanding – cooked to her exact requirements and really melt in your... More

The service and friendly staff make it a pleasure to dine there and the food is very very good. There was plenty of room to move about and there was pleasant back ground music not to loud so conversation was easy.

For dessert we shared the peanut butter cheesecake we both wished we could eat one each a good size... More

We have struggled finding good food in Queenstown. It is a tourist town that has tons of restaurants but it was hard to find a small place that cared about what they made and actually wasn't a tourist trap. Bingo... found it! Staff is amazing... food was incredible. The place is small and a little tight.. but not uncomfortable. The... More

Atmosphere: cosy restaurant great for dates or casual lunches Price of dishes: Around $20 each for breakfast menu Service: Excellent service, our waiter was very professional and sounded like steven gerard the liverpool legend. Give him a payrise. Waiting time from ordering to receiving food: average waiting time, we received our drinks almost immediately Taste: my eggs weren't properly cooked,... More
