Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Great spot for pre dinner drinks in Q town. V good service..prompt and attentive. Our drinks/cocktails were excellent. Only small gripe.. guy next to our outdoor table smoked incessantly and it was horrible! People just say no to smoking outside your premises…and there were some...very very pissed screaming young women who were a menace!! I sound like a nana but I Think the staff should have asked them to tone it down or stop serving them..just saying..More

We’d heard about ‘the best bar in New Zealand’ from staff at our hotel… we went in expecting to be impressed, after our last trip to New Zealand as we were in Auckland and had been blown away by the quality there but best at...what exactly, it’s a pub that does cocktails… wow.. the glassware is dated, the staff un-helpful… you ask for a drink not on the menu and they pull out their phones ! Definitely not what we were expecting… Wont be backMore

Cute little bar overlooking Lake Wakatipu. We stopped for a drink each while exploring Queenstown. They have an extensive range of cocktails and drinks to choose from.

Decent selection of gin. Inside area comfortable, not a place for kids. Didn’t find the staff very helpful whilst navigating the menu. Sat outside, rather rowdy table next to us. Nice view from outside but nothing to write home about in terms of service.More

As we strolled along, searching for a cozy yet chic bar, our attention was instantly captured by the incredibly talented musician who seamlessly transitioned from Bob Marley to Richie Valens in his performance. Inside the bar, we discovered a diverse array of drinks crafted by...highly skilled bartenders, offering a truly impressive selection. And the ambiance? It was nothing short of perfection, creating a memorable and enchanting atmosphere.More

This is our normal go-to spot for live music in Queenstown. The music is always great and the staff normally friendly. Tonight however was an exception. There's nothing more off-putting than seeing new staff treated like dirt by their managers. Here's a tip.... train your...staff before throwing them in the deep end, and even if they make mistakes, treat them with respect. You've lost our respect tonight, together with a lot of revenue. Am hoping, said-mangeress is no longer working there on our next visit.More

It was a cool afternoon, we wandered past and saw a gas log fire burning well, and the blackboard outside said mulled wine. We checked that the mulled wine was coeliac friendly, the 2 bartenders went through the ingredients list with me. Excellent customer service....The mulled wine was well presented and tasted fantastic. Two thumbs up. The mulled wine was so nice that we went back later in the afternoon, once there we found it was happy hour and several drinks and cocktails were at a very good price. The place was pumping with great music and it had a great atmosphere. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Great job everyone.More

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.
