Good ambience but really disappointing non alcoholic selection - AF beer, juice, soft drinks from the mixer. C’mon guys, there are so many good options available now!More

We were staying across the road and dropped in here one day and was glad we did that - it was a great bar with excellent service, views and atmosphere. We both sat outside and inside and spent time in the afternoon as well as...the evening. The cocktails are great!More

Great Bar with good Cocktail selection. Cocktails on the pricey side though starting from $18. Cheese Board selection is amazing, but food selection is very limited. Little patio to sit outside towards Lake. Happy Hour drinks from $9 have limited selection (4/5). Not your local...inexpensive bar, they try to market as upscale bar hence the prices.More

We popped into this cosy wee bar on a few ocassions for either a pre or post dinner drink. Service was excellent, the Old Fashioneds were perfect and it was a great place to sit and relax. Live music featured at 8pm and the singer/guitarist...added to the relaxed feel of the bar. One of my favourite Queenstown spots!More

Thanks for the great review Jane!! I'm glad our Old Fashioned's hit the spot! Come back and see us soon, and maybe try one of our Diplomatico Old Fashioned's next time for a little twist.

Had a drink & platter during happy hour. Busy wee place with a nice atmosphere. Friendly staff. The platter was good but some fresh bead to go with the dips would be nice.

We ordered cocktails and one of our party who doesn’t drink asked for a mock tail version of one of the Lemon honey tequila cocktails. No problem they said, we will make you a lemon honey tea. It was perfect.

The only LEGAL form of ID in New Zealand is a New Zealand License or a Passport. Anywhere else that accepted your Indian ID or photo on a phone has breached legal requirements and should in theory be reported.
