Had a lovely brunch here with a group of friends. They were very busy but service was quick and food was great. Nice to sit outside in the sun with blankets to keep us warm. Excellent service.

Queenstown food generally is fantastic (there's a lot of competition) but this one nailed it and we went back a few times for dinner and breakfast. Great balance of flavours, a well-curated menu and wine list, and (for breakfast) a wonderful view of the lake and the Remarkables in the al fresco area. Highly recommend the champagne brunch, with a... More

We stumbled across Pier 19 in the late afternoon on the Queenstown warf. We promptly made a reservation after reading their delicious sounding menu. We were not disappointed. The food & wine were fantastic as was the service. The trio of lamb was particularly good. Would definitely return and would recommend to everyone that this is a must go restaurant... More

Prime location on the edge of the Wharf with an excellent view. Starters and mains were both great, although maybe trying a little too hard to be unique with the addition of snails etc. However, everything was cooked perfectly, good flavour combinations and staff were very friendly and attentive. All in all, worth the visit.

My girlfriends and I sat outside on the deck on a Saturday lunchtime sharing a steaming pot of Mussels accompanied by lovely crusty bread. We drank bloody Mary's followed G&Ts ........the service was attentive and friendly. This is a great spot for people watching and staring at the stunning scenery. Perfection.

I spent a 2 hour lunch, looking at the beautiful view. Why ? Because the food and the service were out standing for a very correct price. I do recommend the fish of the day (only 25$) very tasty and very nicely served. You can eat outside, blankets are kindly proposed. Well, that was a lovely lunch !

This is really great location to sit outside on a sunny day and watch the world go by. The wine list is comprehensive, the food high quality and quantity and the staff - all bar one - very friendly and attentive. Every time we come to Queenstown we have at least one occasion where we eat / drink at Pier... More

My partner and I had breakfast here one morning and wished we could have gone back! Bacon was lovely and crispy - small portions but not over priced. Great food :)

We arrived at Pier 19 in the late afternoon. We sat outside on huge squashy sofas with lovely furry rugs over our knees in the winter sunshine, and watched transfixed as the setting sun changed the colour of The Remarkables minute by minute. When our wine became too cold to drink we retired inside, to a table with the same... More
