The kofta balls were yummy, and the more traditional breakfasty items went down well too. Hannah was lovely and looked after us well.

Myself and my husband dined herewith friends of ours after being recommended to come here from a local receptionist, I believe her recommendation was spot on! We loved the busy atmosphere, the food and the service was great. We started with the pork belly sticks OMG they were so good!!! I then went for the salmon, and my husband opted for the lamb rack. They had a great selection of drinks and our waitress was attentive and friendly. Would definitely recommend coming here and trying it for yourself! We’ll be back during our next Queenstown visit, thank you!!!

The food was well prepared and fresh and they were able to accommodate for a gluten allergy. There is outdoor seating which looked nice had the weather been better!

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
