We went in without a booking. We felt like onboard a ship. The service was fast and the food was superb, beyond our expectations. Everyone enjoyed the food. The scollop was soooo tender and juicy. Will come back next time in Queenstown!

We found the place by accident as we were walking around the mall in Queenstown to try to get dinner. We saw sign of their menu and found out that the restaurant is actually located upstairs. The restaurant's decor is old-century British style with mostly...More
