A large group of us had reservations for this place a few nights ago: obviously it is really popular, as it was booked out several times when we tried to get in without reservations. From a group of 20, only 2 thought it a good restaurant, the rest of us rating it as mediocre. Table service was outstanding, but meals... More

Visited the restaurant yesterday with my husband and 2 small boys and we loved it. Great menu with lots of seafood options, steaks etc. The staff were very welcoming and we had a good seat with great views out over the Lake. The kids were happy and kept occupied with crayons and an activity menu. We ordered the seafood platter... More

Went here on my last night in Queenstown as a way of of saying thanks to my hosts, walked in bout 8:15 and were told it would be a 45 minute wait for a table, so we went to a pub and had a couple of drinks while we waited. We ordered the crispy prawns and the finz cob loaf... More

Nice relaxed atmosphere in the restaurant but with efficient helpful and friendly staff. Started with blue bay cockles - very tasty but should have had bread with them to soak up the juice, followed by a most superb fresh Tuna dish. My wife started with Fish taco's and followed up with Monkfish in bacon- bacon overpowered it a little but... More

Good fresh seafood, decent size portions, friendly and efficient service, and a nice ambience - what more could you ask for. We really enjoyed this restaurant. There is nothing overly fancy about the menu which is good because there is plenty to choose from and the specials of the day are worth considering. If the weather permits you should book... More

The service here is spectacular fall over backwards, sadly the food, whilst good, is not really any better than average.

Went to Finz after a long day driving around the Queenstown surrounds, and were impressed by the enthusiastic waitress for a start. I had the whole sole pan fried in butter with granulated anchovies on top. Well cooked and presented, and tasted very fresh. The young couple at the next table devoured a huge seafood platter with added crayfish. It... More
