Had dinner here on our first night in Queenstown, and thoroughly enjoyed it. The lamb rack was to die for! And my husband's beef was perfectly cooked. Very helpful staff, cosy heating. A little on the expensive side, but this seems to be the case...More

We arrived without a reservation but were seated - and then re-seated inside when the weather turned - easily. We both had seafood entrees, which we enjoyed. The service was professional yet friendly. Highly recommend.
