Description: Finz Seafood & Grill has a great location right on the waterfront in the upmarket Steamer Wharf Dining precinct in Queenstown where you can watch the TSS Earnslaw Steamship head off on her cruises and keep an eye on people strolling along the Wharf. Whilst specializing in seafood, Finz will also tempt you with cuts of Prime New Zealand Beef and Southland Lamb. All ingredients used to create these tasty seasonal dishes are selected by the Chef Owners from the wonderful array of premium produce on Queenstown’s doorstep. Finz has been a popular choice with Queenstown diners for over 11 years and offers a unique dining experience right on the lakeside.

We dined here on a reasonably Thursday night. Two of us had starters, one was a seafood chowder which lacked flavour, my crab & cod cakes were nice just very small. All five of us ordered different mains & we all agreed that the menu did not read what some of us received. Pumpkin gnocchi was ordinary gnocchi with pumpkin cubes on the side. Some were not cooked. Pork Ribs was a single big rib, taste was good but description was again incorrect. Clam & Mussel Spaghetti was lacking in any sauce, tasted ok but very dry.. Pork Belly was very nice, last meal was the Risotto which was very strong in a flabour/spice I could not work out.. Service was great, can not fault the staff. View of course was beautiful. For the price we didn't enjoy it, will try again to see if they have upped their game.

Jade served us and was so friendly and helpful. The Blue Cod still tasted of the sea it was so very fresh, three pieces really were very special, highly recommend for anyone wanting the freshest fish and lovers of Blue Cod. Served with chips nothing else is really required! Will definitely call again when visiting Queenstown.

Very good meal. Bluff oysters were delicious as anticipated. Southern sole was better than expected, served on the bone. Tiramisu was also of a high standard and service (courtesy of Jade)was friendly and efficient.
