Do not dine anywhere else in Queenstown - there's not much to chose from anyway. This restaurant has delicious food and plenty of it. You won't be disappointed, especially if you order the Steak or Ribs, they're huge. Friendly service too

The food was excellent, with a wide choice, well prepared and presented. Children (big and small) were catered for with paper tablecloths and crayons to keep you amused and create memories for the wait-staff. We left very satisfied and impressed.

Definately worth a visit here. Friendly service. Delicious Food. What more could you ask for? We had the prawn and avocado cocktail to start followed by the Morrocan Lamb Tagine and Hubby had the Gamekeepers sausages. Both mains were fantastic. Pity we are leaving tomorrow,...More
