We were a party of six, eating here twice in seven nights, and both times we had great food and excellent service. (It's so nice to enter a restaurant without a booking and be treated like a human being.) Full marks to Jake - an awesome waiter for one so young - and to Danny for having the courage to... More

Eight of us from the UK ate here on the Saturday night of the Easter weekend. Instantly entered into a 'rapport' with Danny, so much so that I suggested he chose my food so as to show off his restaurant.... and I was not disappointed. The soup was sensational but the main course of Venison and Black bean Ragout with... More

I had a great evening here with friends, the food was awesome along with excellent service and atmosphere. The young server was great in despite some tricky ordering from our party. Will be back again soon!!

Amazing restaurant! Extensive wine selection and fabulous food. The venison was the best I have ever had! My husband had the blue cod which he absolutely loved. All the food is fresh, well prepared and of the highest quality. Hosts are very personable and helpful. Service was great. Reserve to ensure a place as the restaurant is very popular. Well... More

Up the hill from Queenstown. We stayed at the Mercure and was about a 15 minute walk. Had the tandoori chicken pizza and venison and caramelized onion bruschetta. Spectacular. Great service. Highly recommend. Worth the trip up the hill. Would take a cab if staying in Queenstown as it is a hike up the hill!

Enjoyed an absolutely fabulous meal. Fresh local produce clearly a feature of the menu. Charming hosts helped create a delightful warm and welcoming atmosphere. Loved sitting in the bar area meeting locals before we dined.

On the suggestion of our wine tour guide, we ate dinner here. So glad we did. It's in a neighborhood up in the hills so I'd suggest a cab if you don't have a car. Great wine selection and the food is delicious. Make reservations to ensure you get a table.

Scrumptious food, excellent wine, fabulous service and the friendliest and most helpful staff, made for a wonderful night at this little restaurant. We were a family of 5 adults and 1 baby and we were treated like royalty. Each of us had a different dish and all of us commented that the food was sublime. You have to make this... More

This is the only restaurant that is not in the downtown area and it's up a steep hill so a taxi is advised. However, it is well worth that inconvenience. Each couple split a delicious salad and we each selected an entree from perhaps six or so choices. All were excellent. I had the venison over mushroom risotto, which was... More

Seriously unexpected, a restaurant in suburbia, no views, next to a fish n chip shop and small convenience store. Decor eclectic gathering of different art pieces, styles and furnishings. Wine selection is excellent and staff know their wines. The food is the crowning glory. Try the blue cod, you wont be disappointed.

Description
This is a 6-7 minute drive out of Queenstown in a residential area, but well worth it. The food is absolutely first rate, different from the usual tourist menu, served by one of the owners in afriendly, laid back but efficient manner while the other owner cooks - brilliantly! Very informal, unusual, relaxed, unpretentious atmosphere . Great wines, great food and excellent value for money. No views, but if you're concentrating on the food,wine and conversation who cares? Highly recommended.
