Food is an integral part of your holiday experience, and Queenstown is renowned globally for its great food, wine and legendary nightlife.

There are over 150 bars and cafes in the Queenstown region, with everything from fine dining, restaurants owned by celebrity chefs, family-friendly eateries to boutique dessert diners. Not to mention award-winning cafes and iconic burger joints that command a serious following. 

If you have special requirements, in Queenstown you can easily find delicious vegetarian, vegan, halal and gluten-free options.

The perfect foodie day

Start your day off right at one of Queenstown’s many cafes, where expert baristas craft coffee to fuel you. Or perhaps have a lazy brunch or lunch lake side.

If it’s takeaways you’re after, grab a giant gourmet burger and meander down to the lakefront, or pick up sushi, a pie or some pastry and pack a picnic basket for the day’s adventures.

Settle in for the evening at a cosy wine bar or friendly pub or hot the town and experience Queenstown’s legendary night life, and discover the vibrant atmosphere, any night of the week.

Learn more about Queenstown's food offerings, but be warned, there’s so much to choose from you’ll have to return to Queenstown for another taste.
