Queenstown: Food Guide - Dining Out

The Adventure City

Dining out in Queenstown is a treat. With over 100 eateries to tempt your taste buds, you’ll be spoilt for choice – whatever your budget. There’s a distinctly international flavour to eating out in Queenstown and a quick walk around the town will reveal a wide array of menus which span the globe. If you’re in a hurry (or if money’s tight) head for the town centre food hall which offers the usual cheap and cheerful fast food fare. Even on a tight budget you should invest in at least one great meal out at one of Queenstown’s top eateries.

Eating out in Queenstown during the balmy summer days and evenings is a great experience as the restaurants and cafes go alfresco. Tucking into a delicious meal as you gaze out upon Lake Wakitpu and the Remarkables mountain range as the sun sets is a truly memorable experience. In the chilly winter months, the emphasis is on warm and cosy in Queenstown’s restaurants and cafes as the log fires are stoked up and the menus take on a heartier winter feel.

Eating out in Queenstown isn’t complete unless you’ve washed your meal down with a drop or two of one of the regions award winning wines. And when it comes getting your caffeine fix, you’re in for a treat. New Zealanders take their coffee seriously and Queenstown has a bustling café scene.
