“A must do when in Queenstown!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014

What a great night! Although the food was produced in bulk, we couldn't quite believe the quality and variety on offer! From starters, mains and desserts we were spoiled with choice! We both left the restaurant well and truly stuffed full of amazing food! I must have had about 5 desserts in total. A must do experience when in Queenstown!

“Dinner with a view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

We enjoyed a lovely buffet dinner here on one night of our stay in Queenstown. Chose the earliest sitting so we could stay longer. Good idea to get there early to get a good table, but it's true when they say that every table has a good view. The food was pretty good - better than a lot of buffets I've been to (even ones I've paid about $100pp for). Lots of variety and offerings were a bit different to the standard fare. Vegetarian food was yummy. Only let-down was the dessert - could have tasted better.

A unique experience that was worth every dollar though.

Dear Kim-Andrew04,
Thank you for dining in our restaurant and also for taking the time to share your experience with us. I am glad that you enjoyed your night in our venue and your feedback was shared with our team. I am sorry to hear that you felt the desert selection was a let-down especially that it is one of the most successful section in our buffet. As we are committed to continuous improvement, we took your feedback very seriously, and I am sure that at your next visit you will enjoy the deserts as well, as much as you did everything else in our buffet.

“Good panoramic view of Queenstown”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014

You've got nothing to complain about this place though I think it's just average because we've been to many better restaurants in NZ. But the Skyline Restaurant probably offers the best view in Queenstown though.

Food was really average, the seafood selection was just bland. The restaurant was fully seated, making it a bit too crowded for special occasions. I won't go again. But if you are in Queenstown for the first time, it is recommended that you at least take the Gondola. The restaurant does have better view than the Gondola area. The luge is probably worth trying to. You only pay 79 for Gondola and buffet, so it's worth what you pay.

The service was really good. Waiters were very attentive and friendly.

Dear Peng Z,
Thank you for your visit and also for writing a review about your experience. It makes me happy to hear that you enjoyed your trip to Bob’s Peak and the magnificent views that our restaurant has to offer. We do have probably one of the biggest restaurants in Queenstown and indeed we can get really busy sometimes. However we commit to offer a unique experience to all our guests and exceeding our visitors expectation is what we strive for. We are constantly reviewing our food offerings and our menu is subject to a continuous improvement plan that is being carried out on regular bases. Thank you again for your feedback , and I am looking forward to your return, wishing you in the meantime safe travels.

“New Years Eve - What a view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

The overall experience was fabulous.
Staff were amazing - such a great atmosphere.
Food outstanding - table placements excellent so everyone could see the view.

We chose the second sitting so we could enjoy the night lights over Queenstown.

The only downer was we had to vacate tables at 11pm. So be asked to move the bar area, so the tables could be cleared. Not enough seating there to be able to view the fireworks. It was a very cold evening, we had visitors from Australia with us and there was no way they could have stood outside for an hour to get a good view of the fireworks.

A bit disappointing. Surely the tables could have been cleared while we were still seated.
