Description: The views are truly overwhelming from this establishment... lake, mountains, township, and weather. It not only provides the backdrop to handsomely styled interiors, but permeates the very essence of Lombardi’s raison d’être. Three unique spaces comprise this signature hotel restaurant offering an array of dining styles to suit mood and moment.

Gorgeous views over the lake from this restaurant. The service was great, and very informed - we had lots of questions - all of which were answered without lots of grace.

Great menu with rabbit, venison, salmon, lamb to name some of my specials. Have the venison carpaccio - lovely taste sensation :-)

The views from the bar and restaurant are to die for and I am delighted to say the food and service are of a very high standard. I have eaten here on a number of occasions for breakfast, lunch, dinner and room service, and never been disappointed. The staff are all very friendly and attentive without being intrusive. The quality of the food is exceptional and the recommended wines have always been delicious. I think it offers extremely good value for money compared to the downtown restaurants. My only regret is that I have to travel from the UK to eat and stay there.

We had an excellent evening meal at Lombardi. Prompt attentive service, an extensive wine list and interesting food choices which were well cooked and presented. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Lovely views over the lake,

We stayed at St Moritz so used the restaurant (Lombardis) quite a lot for room service, great value kids meals & wife loved venison & lamb especially. I had a couple of pizzas & the lasagne which were quite nice but not outstanding

The meals were OK but nothing to die for. For entrees we ordered the ham and figs, which weren't really to our taste. The scallops were good!

We had the salmon and venison as mains. The salmon was OK, well cooked, but lacking a little in flavour. The venison seemed a little over cooked - as it is meant to be served medium rare.

Both deserts were underwhelming - fairly basic, nothing wow about them.

The service was adequate but nothing special. A couple nearby to us made a wine selection and then told the wine they had chosen was not available. Their 2nd choice was ordered, only to discover it was also unavailable. The Mount Difficulty Pinot Noir was available and was excellent.

We received the above mentioned couples entrees, and then mains, by mistake. This was quickly resolved, but was somewhat awkward as they were sitting right by us. We had a laugh about it with them.

We expected a little more from the 6th ranked trip advisor restaurant in Queenstown.
