We ate twice here as it was so good. Lovely atmosphere, a very well designed place inside and out and credit to whoever came up with the look!

Very good service and the food was delicious and generously sized. Tuna poke bowl was sensational, so was the lamb flatbread... and the beef baguette was huge!

Good beer selection, great coffee, well deserved 5 stars.

Queenstown has been needing a place like Yonder! There are unique drinks like the charcoal latte that are worth trying.
I had the eggs benedict, wasn't standout special, but the hollandaise sauce was made at a nice consistency and the black plate was nice for it to be served on.
My friends had a pulled lamb flatbread, it looked very tasty and looked like way better value for money than the eggs bene.

Hey Ashley,

So great to hear that you enjoyed your experience with us at Yonder. When opening the venue we wanted bring something fresh and different to Queenstown that can cater for all age groups and dietary requirements. Having the transition from brunch to dinner through to a bar with a great variety of drinks and live music - just a great hang out spot.

Super happy to hear that you appreciate Yonder as much as we do and we can't wait to have you back.

Kind Regards

Friendly staff, good cocktails and beer selection. The mushroom infused gin offering is amazing and the food, though simple is tasty and filling to share.

I was really excited to come here after reading some reviews. The place itself
is in a nice location and looks inviting. The food however was really basic. I ordered the Avo smash which wasn’t cheap and was very minimal. It came out on two pieces of plain multigrain toast. There was barely enough to cover half a piece of this toast and I had to ask for butter to spread on the rest. My partner had eggs Benedict which he said was ‘very basic.’ Wouldn’t go back based on this!

Hey Lucy,

Thanks for taking your time to write a review we really appreciate your feedback. It's really disheartening to hear that the food did not reach your expectations and was very basic. Our chefs take pride in the dishes that we offer, giving flavoursome, punchy flavours so I'm sorry that your experience is not what we hoped. Our portions for Avocado are weighed out to be consistent ensuring every dish is the same amount per serve - these are usually generous portions.

I do apologise and hope this doesn't tarnish your thoughts on yonder. We have currently launched our new menu so would love you to come back and give us another go.

Kind Regards
Chantelle

Lovely wait staff and great food. Good place to take a group and order share plates to try a bit of everything. Pork belly bites were our favourite.
