Fabulous breakfast

Our first stop in Queenstown after arriving on a 10.45 am flight so we were looking for breakfast. So pleased we chose this place. Lovely location right by the lake and right in town. The food was really excellent. The staff were very friendly. Would totally recommend.

Had a delicious brunch here last weekend. Sat outside in the sun and it was lovely and relaxing. I had the whitebait omelette which was off the hook and my husband had the Salmon Benedict which looked so good I had to taste it - divine. Service was great with the exception of one waiter, Wesley.

The crayfish ravioli was a highlight and I had some of the best fish cakes ever during a lunch visit. Ambience and service both great. The wine list was high quality although I... More

Pier 19 is another example: it is not difficult to find a nice restaurant in Queenstown. We dined very nice and found matching wines without problems. I would have liked my great tasting onion soup a bit hotter!

Great spot to sit outside and have lunch. We enjoyed the fish cakes & venison burger. The local wine was a nice addition to the meal.

The restaurant sits right on the waterfront. Very classy with elegant music playing and dark decor. The food was very good as was the value. We ordered the seared yellowfin tuna and the rack of lamb. Both were cooked to perfection. The rack of lamb came with seven ribs. A very nice "date style" restaurant.
