Really good communication with the team beforehand. Food was SO nice. Enjoyed the private dining room and didn't matter too much that there wasn't a lake view as it was dark. Many thanks to Graeme and the Team. Nicki and Shaun.
The service is non existent. It takes a while for me to order extra food and drinks. I couldn’t find the waitress or waiter. The food is good except the scallops
Been a few times now and for me this is the best restaurant I have ever been to. It's all about details here from the knowledgeable staff to the dining experience it's hands down the best. Keep up the great work team, we will be back when we are back in QT!
Have e-mailed directly to the restaurant. Shocking attitude from the Matri d. Really ruined our whole night.
Good flavors. Decent size mains. All good.
Absolutely love the restaurant its our favourite place to eat
Enjoyed the food and vibe at BB!
Good food and friendly service
Had a lovely night. Great waitress. Perfect evening.
The staff were so friendly and knowledgeable. Gorgeous venue with outstanding food that shines and super wine list to match!
A wonderful night with great food and fantastic service starting from when we first walked through the door. Our waitress was fabulous!
Jeremy was fantastic. Very helpful!
I would like to be able to try a platter of all meats and sauces available as there are so many on the menu, but not enough space in my stomach to try them all in one sitting. Evie was a wonderful waitress and the food was delicious, your range of wines are outstanding! Thank you for a wonderful evening.
Faultless- simply the best dining in Queenstown.
Everyone raves about this restaurant and it is very good. However it is not worth the money.
Once more Botswana wowed us with a fantastic meal. I chose the Warm Salmon for entree and tidbits surrounding the salmon were delightful added flavours which added a lovely surprise. For my main I had Central Otago Rabbit. A generous serving of very tender bunny, with Bacon and Brussel Sprout drizzled with magic Apple Syrup and the Duck Fat Roasted Potato’s were magic. I chose an Apple Tarte Tatin which on ordering I said I would share with my husband. On first mouthful however I changed my mind it was so delicious I didn’t want to share 😊😊 A fabulous meal with very helpful and friendly staff. I do miss the white tablecloths which used to give a more elegant atmosphere to dining. Judy.
Have visited Queenstown many times,although had never been to this gem of a restaurant before,will not miss it on our next visit.
Very nice meal, highly recommend. Maître D was amazing and very attentive. Beautiful fireplace and bar upstairs. Food was delicious - recommend ordering sides to go with the main.
As Always very good service and food.
Absolutely amazing food and service. Highly recommend. The best food I’ve had in Queenstown
I absolutely adore your restaurant. I have been dining with you on several big occasions over the last 10 years and never disappointed but unfortunately I ordered the half crayfish last week and I was so disappointed. It was a very very small portion (about the size of a large king prawn) and maybe because of the size was over cooked and dry. So for around $45 it was extremely disappointing. My whitebait starter and the sides where awesome. So perhaps you need to tell dinners just how small this main is?
We had an amazing time. Thank you to all involved in our experience. The food and drink were amazing and the private room was the perfect setting for our celebration! We cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough. It meet all our expectations!
Recently held my wedding reception at Botswana, we had the owners private room. It was a wonderful evening. Botswana excelled in service, as well very accommodating for dietary & menu requests. The room was perfect for a group of 30.
