The food is good, and the interior design of the furnishing is modern.

My dining experience did not meet my expectations. Firstly there is a set time for dinner but we were fortunate enough to have a window table but had to fight our way to the buffet as we were packed in like sardines and some patrons did not consider others. It was hard to get to the buffet with many people... More

Wonderful views of a breathtakingly vista spoilt by the smell of the aroma of the deepfryer. Pity the cafe doesn't have the views The luge was fun Think the trip up is overpriced

No real need to book as the dining area is huge but if you want a window seat with amazing views then you have to get there early as its first in best dressed. There are 2 sittings for dinner, one at around six and the other at eight. I'm not a big fan of buffet's but this one was... More

One of the best meals I have had in Queenstown! So much choice and exceptional quality. The menu has recently been changed and I would advise everyone to go and try it! Best view in town.

As Rotorua residents, we were keen to check this out against our own gondola. It was a spur of the moment decision to visit, just before lunch, no trouble getting a booking. Well, Queenstown set up is blessed with possibly the best views around so poor old Rotorua fades against this! The gondola ride is quite a steep gradient, the... More

Obviously the views are stunning, if it's not cloudy but the food was merely adequate. Although there is a wide selection, most things are done poorly (chewy roast beef, fatty lamb, bland vegetables) with a few stars which are heavily mentioned on the promotional material (giant prawns, mussels and salmon). Desserts are sugary and soulless. Basically it wouldn't survive without... More

We dined at the Skyline restaurant for the first time ever after coming to Queenstown for a number of years. I have to say that I was relatively impressed with how good it was and it made me wonder why I hadn't tried it earlier. Firstly, the location is truly amazing, what a fantastic view of Queenstown at day and... More

If only I came here earlier in the evening for dinner - there was a great selection of seafood - including prawns and scallops and salmon, and lots of dessert - unfortunately my stomach and I were unable to put this restaurant out of business! The views of Queenstown was good but at 8pm, it is pretty dark! Definitely recommended... More
