A very nice view to look out to when you’re enjoying a nice beverage! The beers on tap are great and local in NZ. Didn’t try any food but I would just go here for the view

Hi, Booking is highly recommended, especially if you would like window seats with bird's eye views of the city. It's a popular place with tourists. You only pay on arrival, so there's no financial penalty if you fail to... More

Located high above Queenstown with panoramic views of Lake Wakatipu and the Remarkables mountain range, Skyline Queenstown's restaurant is one of the most popular dining experiences in New Zealand - catering for up to 620 guests each night. Chef and guest interaction is one of the highlights of the Stratosfare redevelopment. Guests are able to watch as Stratosfare's expert chefs prepare dishes using some of New Zealand's finest produce at interactive cooking stations. Further enhancing the overall guest experience is the inclusion of a mussel bar, where New Zealand green-lipped mussels are served hot to diners. A central feature of Stratosfare is a purpose-built rotisserie oven where guests can see locally-sourced chicken, beef and lamb cooked before their eyes. A tempting dessert display featuring a vast array of decadent sweet treats is the perfect end to a dining experience. Lunch open from 12.00Pm until 2.00Pm. Dinner reservations available: Early sitting from 5.45Pm till 6.30Pm (tables must be vacated by 7.45Pm) Late sitting from 8.15Pm to 8.45Pm (no time limit) Contact
