Great little cosy bar that was a very welcome retreat from the wet and chilly weather when we visited the city! Extremely helpful and attentive waiting staff. Tapas was excellent with great range of meat/fish/veggie options using local ingredients - chowder was particularly delicious! Also loved the two cocktails we had (cucumber/?gin and rhubarb/strawberry "sangria"). Seemed to find the perfect... More

Good variety of tapas at about $11 per serve. Room was warm and comfortable. Everyone sat in couches along the walls because of the seating configuration and unusual low backed chairs. Service was a bit stilted and cold.

We came for pre-dinner drinks but being Good Friday we had to eat as well. Food was very good - the seafood chowder a stand out - and the interiors were beautiful. Very cosy bar when its cold outside! The waiters were a bit pushy about ordering lots of food but that may have been pressure from the Easter regulations.

Went here for tapas and drinks. I've done lots of tapas restaurants, those outside of Spain are typically only average. Not this place. Whilst not the standard Spanish tapas dishes, the selection of dishes are great using all local, quality food matched with great New Zealand wines. Highly recommended.

We went here for drinks and Tapas while holidaying in Queenstown. Every morsel of food was delicious. We only wish it was full sized meals...but then that wouldn't be tapas! We also enjoyed the mulled wine. The waiters were friendly and attentive. The atmosphere was cosy and classy. Most people there seemed to be middle aged couples. It's a great... More

Enjoyed our pre-dinner drink at Eichardt's so much we ended up having tapas and spending our night there. Small but tasty tapas menu. Worth a visit if you fancy a treat!

I'm sorry I'm reviewing Eichardt's Bar because I would really like to keep it a secret, it's soooooo good. My partner and I had two really lovely visits to the Bar and couldn't wait to return the second time. It's right on the waterfront and is so cosy and warm with their big fire and very comfortable seating arrangement. We... More

Though I did not try and of the tapas style food, it look like an interesting menu of small plates showcasing local fare. As a place for a drink, it was a very well run bar with good cocktails prepared by Graham and the rest of the bar went out of their way to ensure I and the other customers... More

A rather good environment that was cosy but felt a little contrived compared to other places. The signature dish - seafood chowder - was very good , but I have had tastier elsewhere. The wine prices per bottle were just too expensive.
