Only stopped by for breakfast, poached eggs on toast and coffee but it was all good! Took a seat by the window and looked out across the bay, was best breakfast we've had in Queenstown so far. Red head guy with beard who served us (didn't get his name) was friendly and welcoming early in the morning.

We went in to try the large variety of tap beers but ended up eating there as well. Great selection of food and ended up going for 2 entrees and a main. All delicious! We are not vegetarians but loved loved loved the veg curry. Fast and friendly service. Will go again this week.

Atlas is a cute little pub down at Queenstown wharf and is consistently busy and bustling. During the warmer months there is plenty of outside seating to enjoy the views while enjoying a drink and/or some of the awesome food. In winter get in early as there isn't much seating inside. It is definitely very warm inside so if you're... More

Small cozy beer cafe with funky decors. They have many local tap beers and friendly staff will explain the differences. They probably offer the best value for money meal in Queenstown. Food is more than decent compare to most of fancy restaurants in the city. Bar itself is a bit small so it'll be probably suitable for breakfast or lunch.

This place is delicious!! The first thing we ate upon arrival, although we only got appetisers. We ordered slow cooked lamb pie, whole prawn with zesty tomato aioli, and crumbed beef and feta meatballs with garlic yoghurt sauce and dukkha. And the mulled wine was appropriate for the chilli evening. My favourite were the last two. We re-visited another night... More
