The service at this restaurant is great, the food very average. A great disappointment. We had great expectations! We had better pub food in Queenstown .

We were seated next to the window overlooking the lake watching sunset. We ordered pumpkin soup, seared scallops, 36 hours braised lamb and their signature Lasagna (which is a must try). All dishes were good. They happened to have a promotion which offer free dessert and coffee which makes the cost of our meal very reasonable (NZ$130 for two). Service... More

Whether staying at the hotel or not it should be included in a trip to Queenstown. The staff is very friendly and efficient. The chef makes some remarkable dishes and all with a fabulous view of the lake. There is even a piano player.

Fantastic food from the chef Martin, fantastic service from Jimmy & Francois. Would high recommend the venison, moon pudding and the espresso martinis. My friend had the scallops to start which also looked delicious... all of the food was very well presented and cooked superbly. Amazing to find such a gem in a hotel!

I recently had the pleasure of dining at Lombardi with special friends. It has been a long time since I have been so challenged to make my selection. The menu was written with an intelligence that was refreshing - the techniques and combinations described were a clear signal that craftsmanship and care were being applied. I was intrigued to see...

Dined in Lombardi one night during our three night Queenstown stay. Glad we did. Excellent meal and service. Beautiful views of the lake. Enjoyed happy hour cocktails and drinks in the bar before our meal. Certainly a must to dine at Lombardi if staying at the St Moritz and well worth a visit if just on lookout for a quality... More

This restaurant is located in the Hotel St. Moritz and is excellent dollar value. The food was divine and a great selection of local wines was appreciated.

Dined here on our first night in Queenstown, and were very impressed! Great food, great service, great atmosphere, great cocktails, and beautiful location! Were it not for a few other amazing dining experiences on subsequent nights, we would have said it should be ranked in the top 5 in Queenstown. Nonetheless, should probably be ranked higher than #28!

Breakfast was very easy, lots on offer. I came down with five minutes left to close and they kindly stayed open a little longer which was great. Dinner was fantastic, the chefs really care about the food which shows. They even comped our dessert because they were trying it out.
