Had dinner at Public and thoroughly enjoyed it. The food and drinks menus were varied and interesting and service was very good. The restaurant is well located on the Wharf and has good views during the day and is cosy at night, well worth a gisit

My husband and I ate here during our honeymoon in Queenstown and the food was amazing! We had and loved the chicken wings, the beer battered cod, and the pork shoulder, in addition to some salad and veggies. Very high quality, especially for the price!

A busy spot with a lovely outlook over the water, the service was fine but they were obviously understaffed, and the food was pretty average.
