The Blue Cod, cooked whichever way you wanted it, was excellent and the Bluff Oysters made the meal. Very good service and good value for money.

Nice venue, super quick service. Maybe to quick we had the seafood platter for two. Was very basic. Maybe our expectations were too high?

After reading many recommendations for this restaurant in a few different places, I know we had to give this a try! And even with the high expectations I've had of this restaurant, it still delivered. The seafood was so fresh and delicious. We had the Bluff oysters, pan seared grouper and the seafood gumbo, based on a lovely waitress' recommendation,... More

We had our dinner in Fishbone on the first night we arrived Queenstown in late May. The service is excellent. All the staff are friendly and helpful. We ordered cod fish, oyster, lamb and pasta. All are awesome ! It’s a little bit pricy but we had a wonderful meal ! Recommended !

Went to this restaurant as part of a group of 10, entrees were good and there was reasonable variety, when it came to the mains it was more limited and few if the options had much appeal, so I made the cardinal sin of ordering a steak in a seafood place. It was described as a steak with a mushrooms... More

On our first nite in Queenstown and without a booking we landed on the doorstep of the Fishbone Bar and Grill..... All eleven of us (including seven children). Didn't seem to faze them. Within about ten minutes we were seated drink in hand. The staff, including a delightful lady from Boston, explained the menu and we had a beautiful meal... More

Food, wine, service - everything was awesome! We stumbled upon this little gem and are glad we found it. Be sure to check out the lobster tank in the back :)

Came here on my last night in Queenstown,wished we found it a bit earlier. The food was fantastic!!! Fresh and of great quality,the best i had in queenstown. Wish I could try everthing in the menu. Had the cod crumbed & chips,especially like the tartare sauce that came with it: homemade and not from a bottle sauce from a supermarket.... More

We ate here twice while in Queenstown - some of the best seafood we ever had. The staff was particularly friendly and knowledgable, especially about the wines. You don't find this often in New Zealand.
