For the price you pay it is quite expensive however you can't beat the view! As far as buffets go its as good as it gets with plenty of variety. I would just advise to go for the earlier sitting because we noticed as we were leaving that the dishes weren't being replaced just 'topped up' for the later sitting.... More

Good food. We enjoyed or experience. We would do this again but it was quite expensive It's not too bad if you want to do the luge or other activities then it's really not that badly priced.

We had the smorgasbord following the haka show (which I would say is a must do on your list) The staff were pleasant & there was an enormous amount of food to choose from - all of which was very yummy - I tried to sample all the desserts but there were just to many to try

My review is slightly different to others as we hired the room off the main dining room for my Mum's 70th birthday. This room had seating for 30 people and we had a brilliant experience which I would like to recommend to anyone looking for a special venue for a special occasion. Mum's birthday was a great excuse to have... More

The best part of my evening was the beautiful Waitress who goes by the Japanese name of Haruka. She was just gorgeous and we thoroughly enjoyed her service and will return for not only her but the great selection of food. The French chef I spoke to was very welcoming. Was just a very pleasant evening over all and was... More

Last night a group of 5 of us decided to pay the additional money and go up for what we are know is a great dining experience. We booked and paid online and arrived at the gondola in plenty of time for the 8:15pm seating. Upon reaching the front counter to check in we were confronted with disinterested staff that... More

Best view in Queenstown well obviously but the food for a buffet was as expected OK. HOWEVER, after normal buffet main courses we got to the dessert station and WOW the best ever, we had EVERY one of the treats on offer..... Too much chocolate ...... No such thing.

If you're going in winter, you'd be far better off going for the lunchtime slot. This is what I now wish we had done. There were no views when we were there, it was already dark when we went in and we could not even see the city lights due to the reflection of the interior on the windows. The... More

Have been lucky enough to enjoy the Skyline restaurant in Queenstown on a couple of occasions. The buffet choice is excellent with many dishes showcasing NZ flavours. The gondola up to the skyline is amazing. If you can try and get a window. The Maori show is also excellent - this is an additional cost but worth it.

We went in expecting a wide variety, however it was a bit average for the price you pay. We were also expecting a bit of a view but there wasnt any. Customer service was good.
