Worst meal ever, ordered venison and pork ribs. Too too salty. Never go back ever. Very disappointed.

We went in search of a fish restaurant in Queenstown and could not have done better than Captains. The staff were super, friendly and knowledgeable. The food was superb. Nice wine list to complement the menu. Very good indeed.
