Great spot for a decent beer

This tiny bar had a great atmosphere and even better beer Try the Kea IPA if you like a hoppy brew. The food was excellent and not overpriced. Their steaks are justifiably renowned.

I was recommended Atlas for a warm-up after a boat trip but before a flight to Milford Sound. What a great recommendation. I enjoyed a hot chocolate and was tempted by a breakfast which just hit the spot and was very reasonable. I did call back that evening as I was recommended the steak however it was very busy so...

THis unassuming little pub/retaurant is one of Queenstown's hidden gems. The food here costs far less than many of the bigger and fancier eateries in Queenstown, but the steak is perhaps the best i have eaten in Queenstown!

I came here with a friend and got myself a burger and some gourmet beers. Everything I had was excellent. The burger was as good as the one I got from Fergburger the next day. The staff were helpful and I love the toilet that looks like a bookcase. Cool place.

Visit atlas regularly as its one of my favourite places to eat in queenstown! There steaks are the best in town and the best price for them at only $20! It is small and hard to get a table on times but that's what gives the place the character. There breakfast can cure the worst of hangovers especially sat on... More

Nice casual place to dine, great selection of craft beers on tap. Although not cheap they do taste great. Steak was cooked perfectly and cost less than $20 which is good. Nothing fancy but certainly fills a gap and is good hearty pub food. Will eat here again for sure.

A good range od delicious food from a simple menu, I can recommend the open roast beef sandwich. This is the place to come for a top selection of local and regional boutique beers.

This place was a great find. We browsed the other Restaurants along the pier and the prices were way over the top. Who pays $36.00 for 1 lamb shank on mash potato? Obviously other people, not us. We were drawn to having a nice beer for starters then looked at their blackboard menu which doesn't have a huge choice but... More

Went after the dinner rush. great seating on the patio to watch the moon rise. The staff was very friendly and helpful in making selections. a great place to grab a pint at the end of a day. We did not have anything to eat do to time of day. It was however, highly recommended by the hotel staff.

Atlas is amazing! It isn't too obvious as it's rather small, mainly known as a beer cafe so always busy with people having a drink. The menu is an average size, but one thing that is just unbeatable is the steak! $20 for a huge rump steak with chips and salad is definitley a bargain in Queenstown! It's not just... More
