We came in after a cold day out and the fireplace was going, making it very cozy and warm inside. The bar area is small but was not overly packed. Service was great and tapas were good. Clam chowder is a must. Hand-cur fries were good too. The fried calamari was ok, a bit too oily and got soggy. Overall,... More

This is the Seafood Chowder to end it all. We were there for lunch and throughly enjoyed the Seafood Chowder which was indeed legendary. On the trivial, the bread served with the Chowder was amazing too. Lamb cheeks and Mushroom on bread (can't remember the name) are great too. Classy and intimate bar that serves amazing tapas. So good that... More

We wanted somewhere nice to go before dinner so took TripAdvisors advice and went to Eichardt's. It's so warm and cosy with the fire going. We were welcomed as soon as we entered. Wonderful service, romantic if that's what you're looking for. Really nice start to the evening. Could have easily stayed there for tapas if we didn't have a... More

So much to like about Eichardt's Bar. A 19th century building restored after the 1999 Queenstown floods. We love the Bar lounge with views to the Lake across the road (literally) and a comfortable arrangement of tables around a blazing fire. The Bar is part of the Eichardt Private Hotel , one of the 'Small Luxury Hotels of the World',... More

A group of us stopped at the bar late on Sunday afternoon for a drink and something to eat. What a fabulous spot! We had a couple of wines (nice selection) a cocktail and a couple of tapas plates. The food was delicious. Great ambience and a super place to sit and chat and catch up. Really enjoyed it!!
