Great place enjoy and outdoor meal, excellent service, and delicious food. The food was served with a well timed delay, the glass of wine was tasty, so waiting was not difficult in the warm early summer sun. All round a great place to relax enjoy the view and the vibe on the Pier.

Not sure why this is so far down the list. Went here twice in a week. Had the portobello mushrooms for breakfast with goats cheese, was very tasty. Service was a tad slow but comparing this food to others in Queenstown it was up in the top ten. Great coffee also. Recommended for breakfast lunch or dinner.

We enjoyed three afternoon meals here during our Queenstown visit. Great wine choices, delicious meals with prompt service and on one of these days we were lucky enough to here some lively jazz music. The perfect setting for memorable times in Queenstown, a great spot to start your Queenstown and South Island holiday, with a glass of wine, seafood dish,... More

Decided to have breakfast by the water on our last day in Queenstown. Pier 19 have a good breakfast menu with some welcomed changes from the normal breakfast fare. Would recommend the mushrooms on toast with goats cheese and the savoury mince with fried eggs.

We had breakfast here on our last day in Queenstown. They had a good menu with plenty of options for breakfast/brunch. They were very busy and our meals took a little while to get to us but it was very tasty. It is a great location right on the wharf looking at the mountains and the lake and on a... More

The setting of Pier 19 is superb down on the Quay where you can watch the TSS Earnslaw come and go, view the mountains changing colour in the sunset and people-watch to your heart's content. The outdoors seating is comfortable but beware of sitting under the outdoor electric radiant heaters which are either on (too hot to sit under) or... More

Despite initially thinking this would be overpriced, we were surprised. Food was sensational, service was great and even kids were treated like fine diners. Highly recommend. We had a range a kids meals to elderly, seafood to pastas. All hot and very tasty.

We caught up here for our last lunch before heading home. Unfortunately our booking had been misplaced but the team sorted out a table for us & gave us all a champagne Bellini to apologise for the mix up. The pie if the day was chicken & mushroom - super yummy. The chef catered for one of our gluten free... More
