A very good option at Queenstown. Very nice place, ambience with a very good attention, food and wine cellar. Perfect place to go with your couple. Also they have a very good bar in the first floor that you can go with friends.

We found out about the bunker by asking other waiters about what their favorite restaurants was. The Bunkers name came up quite a few times.
I would have loved to try the tasting menu, but we had already eaten a large lunch that day. We ate a main course and dessert.
The food was all wonderful.
The large roaring fire in the room made it very cosy.

The Bunker is tucked away in Cow Lane with a stylish bar upstairs and a compact dinning room on the ground floor. Very good service and food. If you are looking for the best beef dish in Queenstown this is the place.

That is not to diminish any of the other dishes. In fact the degustation option is very good as it allows choices. Take your time to enjoy.

My husband and I visited here on our first night in Queenstown as a result of good reviews on Tripadvisor. We were treated very well by our knowledgable waiter. We were a bit disappointed with the small dark restaurant with no windows. We also felt that our food was very salty and hence detracted from the potential flavours. Apologies, but speaking how we feel, that the food was overpriced for the quality and we have since had better food in Queenstown and other parts of New Zealand.
