This is an absolute gem of a place nestled away up above the hustle and bustle of the vibrant boardwalk area of Queenstown. Boasting superb views of the lake and gorgeous interior décor, this place should be added to your first table list!

The staff were welcoming, friendly and attentive. From our choice of rosé to the menu itself, staff were knowledgeable and happy to answer any questions we had.
The food was delicious. I thoroughly recommend the octopus to start! Slow cooked and so tender.

It was great to have the open plan aspect of the kitchen. Great to see the Chefs hard at work. Good work guys. I would highly recommend Boardwalk to anyone looking for a dining experience with that extra special finesse!

Fabulous meal with outstanding service and a view to die for. We had Salmon Gravlax and Octopus for stater, both amazing but special mention to the salmon. Steak and lamb for mains which were both perfect. Service was really friendly and attentive and sitting out on the balcony with a view over the bay was perfect.

We gave this place a chance on a Saturday afternoon and couldn’t believe how quiet it was! Gorgeous decor and views out onto the lake. The service was great and our waitress was incredibly friendly.

The food was delicious - we both went for the steak frites and then had desserts which were both incredible - the chocolate delice and apple tart.

Can’t believe this place isn’t packed - it should be!

WE had a quick cocktail & snack in the Bar. The Cheese Toastie is AMAZING!
Great views from the upstairs Bar area & a really nice Decor. Probably one of the better views on the Waterfront. Would have gone back for more Toasties the next day but was running late.
