About
Open from brunch until late you can expect hearty healthy New Zealand fare sourced from fresh local ingredients. Try the locals’ favourite the three hour slow-roasted rib eye, or the Cecil Peak lamb. Or why not enjoy an afternoon aperitif with one of Ivy and Lola’s famous Mussel Pots served with garlic sourdough toast? This is the perfect spot for a family gathering, a casual meal or to meet a gang of friends for a drink and a nibble. Sit outside and soak up the sunshine with a spectacular view of The Remarkables or savour a Pinot Noir in the funky Art Deco interior. Open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

I had been dying to try the chicken waffles ever since we booked our holiday 9months prior and I wasn't disappointed. Such an amazing combination of flavors and the jalapeno chutney was outstanding. Lovely open fire for those cool mornings. Sadly didn't get to test...More

Lovely eclectic decore with some very nice food to match. The soup was filling, hot and delicious. Eggs and bacon a treat.

Lovely evening meal while visiting Queenstown. The food was good without being remarkable - good gastro pub standard. Muscles were very tasty and atmosphere very welcoming.
