Good service and a pleasant ambience. However the tapas food is over priced for the portion size and quality. Decent place for a drink but there are better food options in town.

To be honest, I enjoyed the ambience more than the food, but the food was enjoyable enough for a light evening meal. We had a bit of a mixed bag. The seafood chowder and bruschetta were excellent, but the brisket and gnocchi both lacked flavor. A cosy, romantic bar with excellent service. Definitely worth popping in, even just for a... More

Stopped in for drinks and to have the legendary seafood chowder which did not disappoint. Interesting old hotel bar with great location on the waterfront. Bartenders were helpful in getting us to try something a little different from the bar.. All in all a nice little place with good ambiance and great food and drinks. Would stop by again.

Dined here as a group of 6. Excellent location looking over the lake. Fairly small place, and apparently don't take bookings... get there early. Small sharing plates were delicious. Pick of the night was the smoked brisket. Great drinks range. Music was good volume - actually background, so we could still talk easily. Look forward to going back.

Excellent! Every things are perfect, place, food, drink and service. I went there to have a breakfast and really enjoy. So sad that I need to be in rush because I have booked a tour and it will come soon. I would recommend this to my friends.

Cannot believe how's good the food was and I'm not easily impressed either. Can't even fault the service staff, they were accommodating, very relaxed and friendly and had a wonderful chat to us too. A MUST VISIT!!

Dined here twice for dinner. Enjoyed Tapas both nights (black ink calamari, whitebait, beef being the best although all dishes delicious). The staff are super friendly, the atmosphere is warm, the beverage list extensive, the food wonderful and the prices for Queenstown very reasonable. Love dining here.

Was really looking forward to visiting here due to recommendations however sadly were very disappointed. We ordered a tapa, 30 minutes rolled around and it never came we had dinner reservations so couldn't wait around. The waiter told us that he did not remember us ordering this and thus never put the order through even though we had a full... More

We had Eichardt's on our list to try in QT but were a little unsure with the roadworks in front at present. That said, we ended up having a small bite to eat there one afternoon (the roadworks didn't impact our great experience there in the slightest). Don't miss the seafood chowder, it's unreal. The best we've had in the... More
