Description: Rātā pays homage to Southern New Zealand. A modern light-filled eatery tucked away in the centre of bustling Queenstown, surrounded by an urban forest of native trees with a backdrop of some of the regions oldest historic buildings. It is the essence of New Zealand. Rātā creates genuine dining experiences featuring well balanced and inspired New Zealand cuisine, coupled with generous service delivered by our skilful team. The menu is of New Zealand. The best we have to offer from diverse cultural traditions coupled with freshest quality produce and ingredients from the region which includes our commitment to sourcing organic ingredients and following sustainable practices. We also preserve, ferment and dehydrate to bring you the flavours of the south year round. Our wine list proudly showcases wines from the Otago region, greater New Zealand and beyond, with an emphasis on an eclectic mix of the highly regarded and little known gems.

We went here for tea for our combined birthdays. The food was absolutely delicious especially the shared lamb - melt in your mouth. The service was excellent and friendly. It was a very down to earth experience. Definitely come back again.

Exceptional evening start to finish. Friendly and attentive service when needed. Music and lighting just right. Food was everything we hoped for. Shared goats cheese profiteroles bite, followed up with Bluff octopus, full of flavour and texture and perfect amount of bite. Our mains were the lamb and beef and both dishes were cooked to perfection with tasty accompaniments followed by desserts that were delicious. We both agreed that Rātā was the perfect dining experience during our stay in Queenstown.
