Description: Open from brunch until late you can expect hearty healthy New Zealand fare sourced from fresh local ingredients. Try the locals’ favourite the three hour slow-roasted rib eye, or the Cecil Peak lamb. Or why not enjoy an afternoon aperitif with one of Ivy and Lola’s famous Mussel Pots served with garlic sourdough toast? This is the perfect spot for a family gathering, a casual meal or to meet a gang of friends for a drink and a nibble. Sit outside and soak up the sunshine with a spectacular view of The Remarkables or savour a Pinot Noir in the funky Art Deco interior. Open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

The dishes are mouthwateringly delicious with fresh herbs & vegetables giving each meal a special zing not to mention artistic presentation.

My husband enjoyed his steak (eye fillet) meal and my salmon was devine.

Today's brunch was zucchini fritters and eggs - yum.

I found the service lovely - George was attentive and our Canadian waitress (blueish hair) was friendly and we enjoyed her banter with us.

We'll be back again before we leave!

Having just arrived in Queenstown my friends and I went in search of lunch, we walked past this restaurant and the menu looked good so decided to give Ivy & Lola a go. We asked for a table and the waitress (blonde hair with lip ring) she dismissed us with a wave of her hand and told us to wait outside until she was ready because we were "in the way". After a bit of a wait she showed us to a table in the corner. Being almost the end of lunch time and the place being very quiet we asked if we could have the 6 seater table with the nicer view. She said "no, because there are four of you and that is clearly a table for 6". Not sure if she is always like that or just having a bad day but we didn't want to experience her bad mood any further so said thank you and went to the pub next door and had a great meal! Shame because the menu looked great!

Great location next to the wharf. Nice food and service or just to relax and have a coffee or drink. Would recommend.

Popped into Ivy & Lola for a late breakfast as we had a craving for some pancakes - we definitely were not disappointed! Light & fluffy pancakes served with bacon & caramelised banana - YUM! We also had the brioche French Toast with Berry Compote - also a big YUM! Friendly staff who remembered our coffee order from our previous visit and the location is beautiful - right on the lake. Highly recommend

When we came the inside was full, so we sat outside under heaters and blankets - but this was actually really good! We got a great view of the mountains and lake while having breakfast, and we were very warm. Food and drinks were very yummy, and our waiter was very friendly.
