We spend an hour or so here on a sunny day and the food was excellent. The chefs were very friendly and they can take custom orders.

We didn't eat in the restaurant itself, but had platters available from the bar, and sat watching the gondolas (often adorned with a pair of mountain bikes) glide by. Excellent nibbling food, and enough of a meal for us, plus that view.....

Was awesome to see the view from the top of the gondolas. The lunch was fantastic and there was plenty of options. Leave room for dessert!

I am not normally a fan of buffets at all. However this one had such a variety and the food was so fresh. They continually cooked and replaced, so everything tasted great. The variety was vast from suchi to steak - something to suite all tastes.

The lunch buffet was perfect with excellent choices of food. Plus it's only 55 dollars for lunch and gondola! It's very inexpensive compared to other eateries in Queenstown considering the view and the service provided! However, please arrive 15 mins early before lunch begins to ensure you get the tables with the best views as it's a first come first... More

The seafood was defrosted from frozen, and the prawns tasted dirty. The rest of the food was good buffet eating, unfortunately we were not seated next to the windows, and it was raining, so no real view to enjoy.

The views from the skyline restaurant are absolutely stunning and a visit is a must if your in Queenstown. As for the food...the seafood and sweets were ok, however the rest of the food was average and would have expected better quality considering the price. Better going there, having a drink in the skyline bar and have a go on... More
