Food is meant to be experienced like this!

We both dined on the Degustation menu and it exceeded my expectations.

The atmosphere, variety, wines and staff all set you up for a wonderful fine dining experience.

Will be back, just have to save a little more for the Full wine tasting experience next time.

Gantleys is an absolutely fantastic place to dine. It is 10 minutes drive outside queenstown. Gantleys sent a taxi to pick us up at our hotel and had another prepared to bring us back to town afterwards.

Two of us had the tasting menu and it was incredible. The scallops were perfectly done and so was the duck. We were allowed switch a course from the menu to another one with no problems. Every course was fantastic from starter to desert.

Some of the others in our group had the venison and it was the best we had in queenstown. The staff were very nice although not very good at keeping the wine glasses topped up!

All in all it was one of the nicest places to eat in queenstown and I would recommend it to anyone.

What we found to be the best service was the free pick up and drop off by the local taxi company so that enjoying a few wines and after dinner drinks was no problem. Service was exceptional and the menu to die for.

A nice meal and a pretty location. The food is good and solid but a bit pedestrian given what's on offer in Queenstown. The degustation menu was served at a good pace and had nice matching wines. They offer a taxi service (at their expense) which is nice given it's outside of Q'town.

Another very enjoyable meal at Gantleys. Great service and food. Only problem is that it is old style eating, which is great but places like Rata are setting the standard nowadays.
