The Queenstown region boasts more than 150 diverse and innovative eateries, along with a reputation for award-winning Pinot Noir.
In downtown Queenstown you'll find stylish bistro food, traditional pub meals, fish and chips on the waterfront, designer burgers, and a variety of ethnic cuisine. Travel up the gondola for buffet dining set against magnificent views of The Remarkables mountain range and Lake Wakatipu. Nearby, historic Arrowtown is a fine-dining hub, also home to a French crêperie, delicatessen and traditional tavern.
Local chefs are passionate about the region's produce, and seasonal menus are often inspired by fresh whitebait, venison, Cardrona valley merino lamb, wild pheasant, and locally-grown vegetables and stone fruit. Match your meal with a local wine – this area is famous for Central Otago Pinot Noir.
