Booked as a first table but would have been happy to pay full price! The food was amazing (Entree - Garlic Prawns and Sushi) (Main - Lamp rump). The server (Blonde English guy) was very friendly and attentive. Also big thanks to the chef for being accomodating! Highly recommend

We dined here via First Table with my elderly parents, they like to eat early. Lovely view from the window tables of the lake and the Earnslaw. We all had mains - salmon, Tuna, Turbot , with sides- and they were all absolutely delicious. Good portion sizes , if you were very hungry you would just order more sides- there were plenty of options. We didnt expect the desserts to be as special- but they were fabulous. All the food was beautifully presented. Everything we saw leaving the kitchen looked delicious. The staff were lovely, the manager was happy for us to change table to allow my parents a view outside, our server was Sophie, who was fun and spent some time helping our decisions, she took time to chat to my parents and made sure they were comfortable and happy. All in all a lovely evening with fantastic food and great service.
We will definitely return .

We booked a table off the cuff after reading about the seafood platters. We were not disappointed. The freshest, most tender fish I have ever enjoyed. We ordered a cob loaf to accompany the meal as per trip advisor diner recommendation. Ideal! Delightful staff, we were impressed with Amelia, 3rd day on the job and running the tables like a pro. A special shout out to the kitchen team who provided a wee surprise birthday cake for my husband. Greats views over lake wakatipu, very close to the jetty where the water taxi arrives. We will definitely be returning. Thanks team!

Finz was recommended to us by friends and they suggested we try the seafood platter for 2. We were not disappointed and the food was amazing. Excellent service and the staff were so friendly and welcoming. We are definitely recommending to all our friends and look foward to a return visit next time we are in Queenstown.

Finz is THE place to go in Queenstown to eat along the promenade. Our server (Connor) was great at explaining the dishes, and very attentive during our meal. 10/10, we’ll be back
