“Great food with excellent views”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

We dine at Lombardi on our first night in Queenstown. The restaurant provided an excellent athmosphere and it shows a great food. The staffs were also very friendly and attentive. i do recommend their lasagna and pizze, they were my two favourite food in the restaurant.

“Delicious modern food in a nice upmarket dining experience overlooking the beautiful Lake Wakatipu.”
Reviewed August 10, 2012 via mobile

We are staying at the St Moritz Hotel. We went on a Thursday night and had the special for that night .. 2 course meal and a glass of wine for $55NZ. However we had extra wine, coffee and a chere plate for dessert. Great value when you take up the offer. Food was delicious, perfectly cooked. I had the lamb dish abs it was superb. Service was attentive without being over the top. Nice atmosphere. Great view overlooking the Lake.

“good hotel food but better bar service”
Reviewed July 17, 2012

We were staying at the St Mortiz and the Lombardi is their in house restaurant so naturally we checked it out. We visited on 3 occassions - first for coffee, second for evening cocktails and third for buffet breakfast.
Coffee was excellent and beautiful view from restaurant so good opportunity on arrival for us to sit and plan out what to do for the day
Evening cocktails was even better. They had Saturday night special on until 10pm so we treated ourselves to 2 different cocktails each which we wouldn't normally do but glad we did. It was a quiet evening (away from the hussel of the town bars) but we sat at the bar and talked to the bar-tender who was quite knowledgable and friendly.
Buffet breakfast was average hotel breakfast from my experience of other hotels of similar nature. We actually received free voucher for the breakfast due to a mishap of the hotel from our stay so I can't comment on price. We were late - just after 10am so the food had probably been out for a little while. Nothing to write home about but not bad at all.

“felt like a hotel restaurant”
Reviewed July 12, 2012

From entering It felt no different to walking into a hotel's restaurant that serves a breakfast buffet. Too hotel clinical. The furniture seems overdone for a restaurant - more like what should be in a bar. The food was nice but there was no excitement

“Fine food, professional staff”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

It had been a long trip, traveling from Greymouth to Queenstown and my wife and I where set to enjoy some good food.
Every time we dine at Lombardi, its always good
It's a hinden gem and not a lot of people know about it, and more people should
It's the lucky few that do know, that get world class food and service you can't fault
The views are to die and the place has a great feel about it
I have eaten all around the Queenstown area and Lombardi is still my fav place to go
Try tapas in the bar with a bloody-Mary and then the Alpine venison you can't go wrong
