Really disappointing visit to Public. We live in Queenstown and wanted to try somewhere new for my birthday dinner last weekend but unfortunately the food was rubbish. Service was good - the waitress was lovely. Don't like to complain but did tell the manager that the food really wasn't good (extremely bland) and he didn't have much to say unfortunately - we suspected that he wasn't surprised. It was a shame as we were hoping to have a really nice meal and for the price you pay you certainly don't expect to come away wishing you just ate at home. When telling our friends how disappointed we were they said they only ever go there for drinks so would not recommend to eat there.
A little disappointed with our meal; in particular the duck fat potatoes were under seasoned and not crispy as we had expected. However the pork belly sticks were superb and the duck pancakes great too.
Nice service and awesome food
