Great views though, so sit outside and enjoy!!

Great mulled wine, dinner was nice but should have been a bit cheaper, this was a pricey restaurant for what it is.

This place is a MUST on the agenda for your visit to Queenstown. The service from Justin and his crew is outstanding. They will make you feel so welcome, you will forget the time, soak up the view, cuddle in the rug they drape over your knees while contemplating shall you have another serving of the TO DIE FOR Lamb...

Great food, local wines and attentive and friendly service. Enjoyed a lunch overlooking the pier on a brilliant winters day in Queenstown. Menu has a great choice of local produce and wines. Sat outdoors and enjoyed the sun, the views and the food and wine. Staff were great and willing to have a chat. Highly recommended.

We enjoyed an early breakfast that tasted as good as it looked. Although the restaurant was busy the service was very good.

First visit to Queenstown and spent half our time at Pier 19. The food was excellent and the service amazing. Our group of 40 was never an issue, our needs were looked after every visit. The lamb and prawns are to die for. A must visit if you are in Queenstown.

We turned up to Pier 19 to enjoy a meal with a relatively large group of friends. The interior of the restaurant was promising, with a dark warm mood about it.

The food here was excellent as was the service. It's right on the wharf so you have a good view of the lake and mountains while you eat.
