Had the eight course degustation menu with matching wines. It was really very good and each course was very well done. The restaurant is out of town however they provide a pick-up and drop-off service which is great. The setting is very nice, with a lovely garden and a pleasant dining room, all stone and high wood ceilings. My reservation... More

After taking advantage of the offer for pick up and return so that we could enjoy the wines, we first noticed the beautiful gardens - gorgeous - sit and admire or walk through with a cocktail or a glass in your hand. Then the building itself is special - solid stone, restored in every way with a decor inside that... More

My wife and I had a perfect evening at Gantleys. We had the Chef's Menu with matching wines. Every course was delicious and served beautifully. The service was excellent, and the ambiance of the restored 19th century inn was wonderful. There was plenty of space between the tables with enough sound deadening to allow conversations in a normal voice. (For... More

What a beautiful building, nestled in lovely gardens. The atmosphere is serene. No other place in Queenstown comes close to the character of this Restaurant. A Queenstown dining "must do".

After a typical Queenstown adventure experience we very much enjoyed the tranquility and calm of Gantleys. We were greeted warmly and enjoyed a glass of champagne in the bar before being shown into the dining area. We had the degustation meal with matching wines and enjoyed the gentle progression through the courses. Wines perfectly matched the courses, the wait staff... More

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.
