My husband and I ate at many restaurants during our holiday in Queenstown but this was by far the best experience. Great setting, very relaxing environment, beautifully laid out dining room with tables at a good distance from one another for privacy. We chose the six course degustation meal and debated about having matching wines but opted out as we... More

We had the 6 course Degustation menu with wine to match and yes it's not cheap, however, in our opinion it was worth the money as we enjoyed every course. The food was absolutely delicious and very innovative, matching wine was perfect. The portions are not big but that is what you would expect with this kind of dining. It's... More

We had a dinner here when we visited queenstown. We tried quite a few fine dining places yet this one really impressed us. The food are simply great - very special taste, fresh, and the fish and duck are just really tasty! It has a great wine list and the owner is really good at choosing the wine pairing for... More

A true pleasure to be back @ Gantleys in Queenstown/Arthurs Point. The atmosphere is still romantic, the wine list still outstanding...BUT the new (French) chef Bastian is something else! He has single handedly brought Gantleys back to former glory. The starters (we had scallops and venison carpaccio) were already a hint at greatness, but the snapper (with asparagus tempura plus...

Food was great. We actually were picked up by a contract cab that we shared with the chef and partner from another Queenstown top rated restaurant. You know the food is good when the other chefs patronize the restaurant.

This was the worst meal in my entire 58 years. Meat was raw and flavorless, vegetables were crunchy, not cooked, and salad need to be completely cut as it was too large of pieces ("dressing" was bitter and flavorless) and the cost was outrageously expensive at $170 for two. The cook needs to go back to chef school to learn... More

What a truly fantastic night. The building is a historic authentic experience, and the service was excellent. However the food was absolutely amazing, there are no words that do justice to the culinary delights we experienced, I highly recommend this to all, get the degustation good value and wonderfull night out.

Worked with this restaurant to bring 14 people. The staff was great, helped with transportation, and accommodated a last minute delay. The grounds are quaint and have a great old world fell to them. Everything they brought out was fantastic, especially the lamb. If you like romantic ambiance, this is a winner.

From my point of view this place is one of the best in the area of Queenstown. First of all, there is a free shuttle service if you stay in Queenstown. Arranging that with the owner was a peace of cake. The restaurant itself is very nice, warm and with a cozy atmosphere. Unfortunately weather wasn't to good so we... More

We recently dined at Gantleys as a group of six in their private room "The Wine Library", the entire evening was fantastic. I went all in and had the 8 course degustation with mathcing wines. Every course was perfect and the wine pairing was spot on, add to this the friendly and professional service and you've got an excellent dining... More
