We went to The Bunker for Christmas Eve. They had a set menu that day so the choices were limited and the price high. We both ordered the venison as our main. I found it too undercooked for me and the chef nicely cooked it...More

From beginning to end the atmosphere, food selection and accompanying wines were sensational. The waiting staff were nothing but attentive, friendly and informative. I had the seafood version of the menu and I have to say the abalone was delicious. I can’t say that I’ve...More

Excellent margheritas. Sat next to a roaring fire which was super warm on a freezing night. Fantastic music too. Highly recommend for a chilled out evening

Warm fire, an extensive menu of local food and wine and great service on our visit to the bunker. All our meals were excellent and hard to fault. Wine options were excellent too.

I've been to most restaurants in Queenstown and this is the best fine dining experience I've been to. Staff make you feel at home, and the tables are arranged so that you don't feel suffocated by other diners. As far as food it's range is...More
