Hands-down, the best place to view Queenstown and its gorgeous environs, with a fun gondola ride and delicious dinner to boot. What a combo! We recommend that you pay extra for a window table at dinner; you won't regret it. The buffet's offerings are extensive. Even the pickiest of eaters should find plenty from which to choose. We particularly enjoyed the salads/cold cuts, seafood -- wonderful NZ green-lip mussels and salmon, and cheeses. Didn't care for the overdone lamb; my husband liked the beef. There are two seatings for the dinner buffet; we opted for the first so we could look around during the daytime/at sunset. Don't wait until the last minute to take the gondola up for dinner. Allow some time to walk around a bit. (We were there in the "shoulder season" so we had no wait for a gondola car, but we were told there can be a waiting line during "high season".) Enjoy the panoramic views from the outside decks. Or, check out the view and watch the gondola cars zip by while relaxing in the cocktail lounge or entrance sitting area. A wonderful experience; a very good value.
