Went here for breakfast almost everyday we were in Queenstown because the view is amazing and the food was so fresh and delicious. Pastries are baked to perfection and the coffee freshly pressed.

i wouldn't normally rate hotel restaurants for quality, however tonight's meal at the Rees Hotel resaurant 'True South' was exceptional. The quality and presentation of the food was second to non and the service excellent. Having eating in many restaurants all over the world that title themselves as ' fine dining' I can confidently say that this blows most of... More

Life is full of contexts... a superb dinning event is often defined by what's happening in your world as well as what the restaurant & the staff happen to be doing on the night. Last night the stars aligned. Our 20th Wedding anniversary, the 5 children safely tucked at home in their beds, a superb relaxation room at the Hilton... More

We spent 5 nights at the Rees, and ate in the restaurant, True South, for 2 of those nights. The food was excellent. And the staff knew the menu, could describe the food and make recommendations. There is a wide choice, so all tastes should be acomodated. The view is also very relaxing. It is not cheap, but much better... More

We were staying at The Rees and booked for 8pm - probably a bit late as we were last in by quite a way. However, the food was great, we weren't rushed and the it was a very relaxed family dinner. Thanks guys!

Absolutely top notch meal. Main course of venison was out of this world. Fantastic attention to detail with accompaniments to the main (eg mini truffle creme caramel etc). I had the dessert which was also incredible and my partner had the cheese board, which she tells me was served perfectly (and not straight out of the fridge). To top it... More

We visited Pure South for breakfast. Melanie offered fantastic, professional service, the view was stunning and the food was so fresh and delicious. We would love to try the restaurant for dinner too.

Food range and preparation was first class with attentive staff. Many other competitive choices in Queenstown, it depends what you want, but this is the top end!

We chose True South Dining Room to celebrate a milestone birthday dinner - to say it was impressive would be an understatement. It simply could not have been better, from entree through dessert and then some. The food is extraordinary, the service exemplary, the wine list extensive and showing off the region beautifully - the whole experience made for the... More
