Our first experience here was on our first day in Queenstown.. just checked in and looking for somewhere warm to go for lunch with the kids. We were walking through the alley ways that connect the Novotel Queenstown with the main mall in Queenstown and found Monty's Bar with a sign advertising $12 lunch. On entering we were overwhelmed with... More

Don't let the title put you off, after seeing the queue for ferg burger we fancied a burger but didn't want to wait 17.5 hours in the baking heat only to have take away. Went to this place and had a burger and beers, definitely the juiciest/messiest burger I've ever had (hence the title which made us laugh at the... More

Someone in DB needs to be fired for how a previously near premium brand has been dragged so low. Food was very poor...reheated overcooked (read inedible) vegetables...1 patron incapable of standing at 6pm. Dirty toilets and overpriced undersized beer. Definately not a highlight in an area with so much to offer. I had rump elsewhere at $19, that was vastly... More

Dinner was good, but all I can still think about is the pear ginger cider. It was delicious. I wish I could get it here in Oregon. I will be making it my mission to find it.

Great selection of beer and an amazing burger topped off by stunning views of the lake and the mountains on their outdoor deck. Would definitely recommend a stopover during your time in Queenstown.

This place is tucked away in a side street. You have the choice of outside or inside seating. We have been lucky to sit outside in the sun. This place has atmosphere and reasonably priced food. The drinks are standard NZ prices. Each time I am in QT I end up here.

We arrived here with the goal of tackling one of the beer tasting paddles. We left after many more beers, and a great game of giant jenga. Much fun was had.

We popped into here for a quick meal between a cruise and ice bar. They had a well priced lunch menu displayed outside so decided to try it. The service was a little slow but our meals did come out quickly when I mentioned that we were booked in for another activity and only had 30 minutes. I had the... More

We were looking for a bite to eat after the day skiing, we ended at Monty's. The food was great! Warm atmosphere, friendly staff and a little more on the menu than you run of the mill pub. Great place for a feed and a beer!
