Queenstown Fine Dining

Visitors are surprised at how many Queenstown Fine Dining restaurants there are. Romantic tete-a-tetes by the shores of the lake, or elevated dining high up at the top of the Skyline Gondola, Queenstown has the perfect eatery to suit all palates.  

Fine Dining in Queenstown can mean anything from the romance of Gantley's Restaurant (Arthur's Point), to the rustic charm of The Bunker (Cow Lane). If you're out to impress, check out the Pier 19, or if it's a proposal opportunity you're after, it has to be Wai restaurant situated on Steamer Wharf and a regular award-winner.
