A small cafe that probably serves the best coffee in Queenstown, 100% organic, and is complete with delicatessen and sandwiches that are made by Bob's mother, an odd woman and her clothes and style is very quirky yet utterly charming.
Lonestar is a TexMex restaurant chain with over 20 locations in New Zealand. The portions are large and the food is of sufficient quality. The menu includes pork ribs, steaks up to 350 grams, and fish. There is a pub in the annex and a terrace where the party continues.
It is a wine art from the previous generation, where you buy a magnetic card you charge with money, and then you can sample from more than 80 tasting stations of New Zealand, just insert the card. They have several wine experts for advice, and may also have light meals
The Cavells is the perfect place to unwind after the excitement of the Shotover Jet, which flows through the Shotover River canyons at speeds up to 80 km/h. You can watch jet boats at full speed from the cafe's terrace until they are lost from sight in the canyons.
Queenstown is one of the best cities in New Zealand. There is no shortage of bars and restaurants to suit all tastes and budgets. For those who like pizza, we suggest a visit to Fat Badgers (only open in the evening). The sizes of the pizzas are crazy. I had never seen such large pizzas, the size of a truck wheel! Very good quality, and cheesy pasta, too. Best of all, the price is right. New Zealand isn't the cheapest destination, and any savings that can help you keep your money for the extreme sports have to help :)
This is one of the most popular restaurants in Queenstown, and there are always queues of people lining up to buy their delicious and gigantic burgers for about 6 €. All the types that I've tried, from tropical to pineapple, to lamb, to the Cajun chicken, are all juicy and tender.
It´s located in a house with two floors that have fantastic views over Lake Wakatipu. It´s the typical Irish pub with Guinness and other Irish and Australian or imported beer. The food is also Irish, and of course the music. There are live bands sometimes too.
