The service was good, the entrees very nice, but our sole mains were oily and uninteresting. Overall the food was okay but overpriced for what it was. We have had much better value for money in the region.

This was not only one of our best seafood meals in New Zealand, but one of our best meals overall. An excellent selection was augmented by original, tasteful, and tasty preparation. Fishbone is an excellent choice for dinner, in a charming part of Queenstown.

This place is average. It prides itself as a seafood restaurant, but it gets a lot of things wrong. The scallop entree was luke-warm, and the calamari entree was rubbery. Made eating both dishes unpleasant. The clam pasta was greasy, with too much oil. Suggest...More

Saw the great reviews on the restaurant so booked a table for our trip to Queenstown. The food was ok - quite pricey for the portions and the flavor was average. The chowder was too thin and not too impressive. The fish for the main...More
