A beautiful fine dining restaurant located on a discreet street in city. Lovely ambience, great for intimacy dining.

The bluff oysters were fresh and decently sized. The beef tartare was well marinated and matched well cheese granule. The fish crudo was also very refreshing and fruity.

The venison was cooked perfectly, raw but not gamey. The pumpkin purée tasted delicious too. The 55 days beef fillet was nicely cooked as well.

The chocolate fondant was sweet and soft, with a runny inner. The mango sorbet created a good balance to the palate.

This was the best restaurant I’ve experienced so far in Queenstown. Reasonably priced, good service. The food were fresh and delicious with beautiful presentations.

Highly recommended to all.

That is the most famous place for fine dining in Queenstown. We had two entrees and one feast that night but in fact only one feast was enough for two people. We had the ox tongue and the cheese roll for entrees. The ox tongue was super tender and it took little work to cut. The cheese roll tasted light, but the soup kind of ruined its crisp skin and then the taste. The feast was lamb shoulder. It was quite huge, but we still finished it because it was delicious. The lamb was juicy and tender and the honey sauce was surprisingly perfect for matchup. I also like the eggplant inside. Finally, the service was great, the staff was kind and warm. She offered many recommendations to us.

Starters were quite good. Main course was poor. Beef cheeks were tasteless. Would be better off having Fergburger.
