The interior of this small bar is comfy, the staff chatty, the ambience welcoming. The small plates of food didn't deliver. The harissa marinated lamb cheeks- all 3 tiny pieces, were underwhelming, served on a teeny smear of hummus with a micro portion of slaw. The calamari in squid ink tempura was a little chewy, the batter black yet tasteless.... More

My friends and I visited Eichardt's during our visit to Queenstown and had a great experience. The atmosphere is very cozy and the service was excellent. We ordered tapas including the chowder and the bruschetta both of which were great. Also - they have a great selection of cocktails. I'd recommend visiting for a light dinner or happy hour one...

The food was excellent here, we had tapas and they were all great. The chowder was advertised as their specialty and it did not disappoint. We enjoyed it so much we went back for breakfast which was equally good.

we arrived in Queenstown on a wet and windy day, only the Earnslaw was moving on the lake. dropping in as planned to Eichardt's Bar for the Legendary Chowder was just the job for lunch. in a splendid "london club" atmosphere there were more staff than customers but the service and chowder were excellent.

On a cold night (or day) in queenstown this bar never fails to have the fire going. A small 20ish pets only bar that is so intimate you want to stay. I always make this a must stop at when I'm travelling to queenstown. The tapas are small but who said you need to eat a tonne of hot chips... More

Great place for a few beers/wines and tapas lunch with your other half or friends Cool decor, comfy sofa, friendly staff, lovely view out to Queenstown Bay so you can watch the Earnslaw going out/coming in (amongst others). Not to mention the tasty tapas! We ordered a couple of dishes then a couple more! AND they had a 3 glass... More

On a rare occasion of dining, a dish will burn in your memory. Presentation, smell and flavours, the seafood chowder and short rib dishes did this. You made me love Queenstown that little bit more.

Three one inch pieces of lamb for $12? Staff are great, drinks good but the food prices are not worth the visit.
