Pizza, salad and pasta. Decent food for a decent price. Winnie’s is an un-assuming place, staff come across as not really enjoying their job.

We had ordered our meal for a small family of four with two adults and two teenagers who are small eaters , was told a substantial meal was required for the adults to be able to have a beer and wine? Managers discretion Wudnt apply as our meal was considered not substantial to comply with NZ Law? Very dissapointed and will not be back! Menu didn't look appealing and manager was not willing to accomodate a family

Hi Dean. Thank you for taking the time to review your recent visit to Winnies. For the benefit of anyone else reading your review I'd like to take this opportunity to explain a little clearer some of the details of your visit, and NZ licensing laws.
Under the Sale and Supply of Alcohol Act 2012, on Easter Sunday (the day you visited) it would have been illegal for you to be served alcohol without ordering a substantial meal. This was explained to your party upon arrival and then again when your order was taken. 1 x kids pizza, 1 x small pizza and 1 x bowl of fries does not constitute a substantial meal for 4 people. Sadly for us, "management discretion" does not put us above this law. Your waitress politely informed you that you would not be served alcohol because of this. You quickly became aggressive and insulting towards staff and management, and created a scene in our family restaurant. Management discretion does however allow us to refuse service to rude patrons, and that's why you were asked to leave.

If you’re looking for delicious pizza while in Queenstown, try Winnie’s. The pizzas come in various sizes and there are lots of options. Service was very friendly as well.

Dropped in for late lunch - place was empty. Strange combo of ingredients on most of the pizza’s. Not really authentic (base was not freshly made) and my wife said the gluten free base was poor. Cannot really recommend this to people who like authentic pizza - try elsewhere.

We were served by Alex who was lovely and very efficient whilst being friendly but professional. Pizzas were only ok; the base felt overly processed and doubt was made on premises (more like a frozen pizza). Salad only ok and could have been fresher. Drinks great and kids loved colouring kit and free drinks! Great venue and clearly would be packed later in evening (we were there early).
