Enjoyed a family dinner which catered for my granddaughter and gluten free daughter in law with great food and cosy atmosphere. All of our meals were very good and the wine and beer selections were excellent.

Had great company, all that was needed now was great food, and that is what we got. 10 of us went for dinner and we sat upstairs. The atmosphere was very warm and cosy, the service friendly and the food was very good. I chose the blue cod with truffle mash, very tasty. Others had the salt and pepper squid... More

We were in Queenstown last weekend and popped in here for coffee on a cold wet Saturday morning. Staff were super welcoming even though we were only having coffee made us feel very welcome and gave us a table by the pot belly stove. Coffee was great and Im a bit of a coffee snob. We came here 10 years... More

Awesome restaurant with an excellent yet cosy atmosphere. Not crowded at all and the food was superb! I think my eyes nearly fell out of my head at the serving size! I certainly shouldn't have gotten an entrée because I was stuffed by the end of the mains so sadly had to skip dessert :D Well worth it!

We took a day trip to Arrowtown and decided to eat at Stables after perusing all the restaurants and cafes first. We were seated quickly and our order was taken. Food was delivered to our table in a timely manner, staff were friendly and the meals were delicious. Portions were smaller, however just enough to fill you up! Highly recommend!

Only 2 couples dining there last night, but the waitress made us feel very welcome. A warm log burner often refuelled. The steak and lamb mains were excellent.Cooked exactly as per menu. It always helps to have a "bubbly" front person and she made our night very enjoyable

We ate here at lunch, outdoors in the shade. The service was excellent. The food was good with a good choice of beers and wines. Puddings were particularly nice.

Enjoy the ambience of our fully restored 1876 stone building. Open for lunch and brunch from 11am with dinner being served from 5pm. Our al fresco setting is extremely popular during the summer months or take a step back in time in our beautiful interior for fireside dining. Our food is classic and hearty, focusing on slow cooked New Zealand produce, Aged steaks from the grill, and fresh seasonal produce. An excellent array of Central Otago wines. Feel free to join us for a full dining experience or enjoy some beverages and tapas.
