Nice food, great location

The restaurant is on the lake near the cruise pier, so is easy to find and will probably be busy. We were there off-season and most of the tables were in use, so you should probably book. I had the fish and chips which was very nice and well-presented. The staff were friendly and helpful. The... read more

It's a fantastic place to return to and lookout at the bay and people passing by to get on the Earnslaw. The bluff oysters were amazing. Usually have the tempura ones but have been converted to the natural ones. I enjoy returning here. Thank you Pier 19

We got off the plane, unloaded at the hotel and arrived at Pier 19 for my partners pre-booked birthday dinner. It was very cosy inside, great atmosphere and super friendly wait staff. The food was delicious, but slightly too expensive. Would still recommend it!

On our first night of a 10 day holiday we dined here. The weather was perfect for sitting outside. The sunset over the Remarkables was outstanding and the food was simply the best. All four of us loved what we chose, particularly the Pork Belly and the Monkfish. Great service, great location and great food. There were even rugs for... More

A perfect spot to enjoy being in Queenstown. We had the crisp skin pork belly with seared scallops and the roasted ballotine of chicken with a bowl of chips to share, and of course a great selection fabulous NZ wines. We really enjoyed our dinner here, and the service was good too.

My wife and I visited Pier 19 twice during our week long stay in Queenstown, once for lunch and once for breakfast. This place has outside seating overlooking the lake, which we love, right in the heart of the Queenstown, and the views and atmosphere made our meals that much better. I had the fish and chips for lunch, and... More
