Pier 19 was the first restaurant we dined in when we got to Queenstown and we loved, loved, loved it! The service was exceptional and probably the best and most attentive we have received from start to finish at a restaurant here thus far and the food was seriously without fault - so delicious! Can't commend it more - we... More

We sat outside on a beautiful sunny day with snow on the mountains around us was amazing! Right on the waterfront. Food was good although mine was cold when it came out to me. Would love to go back and try something else.

My family, partner and I went to dinner at this restaurant one night during our stay in Queenstown...to say that we were blown away was an understatement. The main meals, the deserts, the service, the atmosphere, it was all amazing. A few days later we attended again for breakfast and we were certainly not dissatisfied. Most definitely recommend this delightful... More

Came into Pier 19 starving for breakfast. We ordered food then waited 50 minutes for it to arrive at our table (the restaurant was fairly quiet so not sure why it took so long). When the food came out it was cold, the toast wasn't even toasted (it was bread) and our vegetarian meal was missing the beans. We ate... More

Warm easy family friendly pub for a quick lunch stop after just arriving into QT for a week of skiing Cardrona. Service was friendly and swift. Nice stop. Shame the big tv wall blocks the view of the lake. Tables outside look nice... More

We went to Pier 19 for our 3 year anniversary breakfast. We indulged in a beautiful seafood platter for 2. What a treat for breakfast! We followed this up with fresh natural oysters. I loved the setting, we sat by the window and admired the stunning Queenstown vista. The service was impeccable, we could not fault our experience! Also this... More

This place uses local produce - and you can taste it! Went with a group of 7 people, and all of us really enjoyed our meals. The food was fresh, well cooked and well presented. The view was very beautiful - looks out over the lake and to the mountains. Only negative feedback is the dessert menu had 3 choices,... More
