We both had steak - one fillet and one ribeye. They were cooked as ordered and the steamed vegetables were done perfectly. A pity such nice meals were served on cold plates. The main was the meat only, and vegetables were a side order and...More

Went there ordered salmon dish, taste not too bad, but the wait time is too long especially when there aren’t many customers, in fact I had to wait 3 minutes to pay for the meal when it’s not very busy.

Captain is our favorite restaurant in queenstown. Always visit it when in queenstown. Never get disappointed. Will visit again.

We ate here for dinner during our time in Queenstown. Admittedly, I wasn’t very hungry and opted for green lipped mussels and my husband ordered the white bait. It was nice, quite expensive for what we had but we enjoyed it.

nice restaurant, although quiet "dark" during daytime. Recommended also for coffee or beer, if you are passing by.

Came here for some mulled wine and a beer after checking out the sights in Queenstown all day. The place has an amazing atmosphere. The food looked amazing but we were only there for drinks. The staff were great and very welcoming.

this was a good dining experience, tempered a little by a general sense of busyness, even a sense of hurry. location and ambience are good and the seafood was top class.

I got the big breakfast and my mrs got the waffles. Was happy with the food but was probably more of a medium breakfast, not a big one. Nice place inside and out. It is in the mall but you can still see the mountains....More
