Enjoyed a drink on the top deck on a lovely sunny day. Bar man nice and friendly. Recommend to go on a fine day you can also take your own food onboard. Maybe buy something from the food vendors on esplanade

The boat itself is quite nicely arranged with a small bar inside and the tables and seats on the first level. The staff were nice and friendly and the views out to the lake and mountains was excellent.

We came here after a long day driving and going on walks. We got back to Queenstown and we were very tired and didnt want to cook so we found this place. What a saviour. We had a good meal and service was great. Thanks

Great location and great idea for a casual relaxed no frills dinner and drink. BYO (bring your own) food and then buy drinks on board.

A floating bar that allows you to bring your own food - what a winning concept. Combine with an amazing location and you have a real winner. Great undercover area on the top deck with heaters to ward away the evening chills. Great place to...More
