This restaurant offers lunch buffet at abt 55 per pax. I think the extra $20 surcharge just for a window seat is unnecessary and a poor management strategy. View 5 stars, Food 5 stars, Service 5 stars. Definitely worth going.

I was very disappointed with my experience. For the amount of money you pay the food is not great and you have to fight your way through. I would definitely recommend if you are going to do it, get a lunch time booking so you...More

I dined here last Saturday night at the earlier dinner sitting, so still saw all the views. I was happy we didn't pay the extra $20 for a window seat and cocktail, as in the daylight you can still see the view quite easily from...More

Only been once a few weeks ago for dinner and I would say its quite fancy. It is big though so not sure how much privacy you would get with a small number. The view is amazing as long as its daylight and the weather is good... More

Located high above Queenstown with panoramic views of Lake Wakatipu and the Remarkables mountain range, Skyline Queenstown's restaurant is one of the most popular dining experiences in New Zealand - catering for up to 620 guests each night. Chef and guest interaction is one of the highlights of the Stratosfare redevelopment. Guests are able to watch as Stratosfare's expert chefs prepare dishes using some of New Zealand's finest produce at interactive cooking stations. Further enhancing the overall guest experience is the inclusion of a mussel bar, where New Zealand green-lipped mussels are served hot to diners. A central feature of Stratosfare is a purpose-built rotisserie oven where guests can see locally-sourced chicken, beef and lamb cooked before their eyes. A tempting dessert display featuring a vast array of decadent sweet treats is the perfect end to a dining experience. Lunch open from 12.00Pm until 2.00Pm. Dinner reservations available: Early sitting from 5.45Pm till 6.30Pm (tables must be vacated by 7.45Pm) Late sitting from 8.15Pm to 8.45Pm (no time limit) Contact
