Outstanding food and service
Another excellent dining experience at Botswana Butchery thank you
Awesome meal...great service
Brilliant service - we had a gentleman from Belarus looking after us, he was outstanding. Food was delicious; highly recommend the lamb shoulder!
Always great to go to Botswana Queenstown!

Outstanding friendly and knowledgeable service. Food was excellent!!! Thanks Claudia for looking after us at the bar. We had an excellent night out. Thanks Team.
It was an absolute pleasure to dine again at Botswana Butchery. It is one of our favourite eateries and it has never failed us. Eating with two Queenstown locals, we were delighted to see how busy it was post-Covid. Service, great Food, delicious Wine, superb Atmosphere, BUSY! Get into it New Zealand, the country is ours.....❤️
Eugene is a delight and looked after us as perfectly as he did the previous Friday 15th!
Superb food, great atmosphere and our server knew how to create a perfect Manhattan cocktail. Impressive!
The oysters were amazing!!
the service was excellent, as usual, the food fantastic, as usual and attention to detail perfect.
Always a lovely experience dining at Botswana. Thank you.
Once again our favourite restaurant. Pricey but willing to pay as the experience is like no other.
Great food with excellent service
Amazing as always! Our waitress Valentina was incredible. Thanks so much guys, we love you!
The food and wine were absolutely top notch. The service was fantastic. Apologies I can't recall the gentleman's name, but he was a legend and super informative. With regard to the atmosphere, it was a really beautiful space, however we were put in our own private room, away from the 'atmosphere' and with a view of the roof. I honestly believe that if we were on any other table in the restaurant, we would have rated the atmosphere a 5. Value for money is a tough one. I mean, it's somewhat pricey, BUT we definitely walked away thinking "that was NOT a waste of money" which can often happen when you visit a more expensive eatery. We would definitely, 100% visit Botswana Butchery during our next visit to Queenstown! We honestly can't wait.
My second visit. Excellent again
Everything was absolutely fabulous. Thank you so much.
Food was delicious, presentation beautiful. Service fantastic. Atmosphere wonderful. Would definitely recommend if in Queenstown NZ
We were a group of 8 visiting Queenstown for a holiday. it was the second and third time to the restaurant for half and the first for the other four. They were astounded by the venue and food and all agreed it is one of the highlights of the trip. Thank you to all the staff and look forward to our next dining experience at Botswana Butchery Queenstown
I’m sorry to say it as we do like Botswana Biutcheey but this is the second time in a row we have had poor service when visiting Queenstown ....so can’t really ignore it. After being seated and ordering food and wine we were left to it. Even the most basic service should involve an occasional check in with the customer. When we did have some engagement it turned out that the wait person had forgotten to place our order. The person was most apologetic as was the maitre’d and we were offered an entree - we didn’t actually want entrees or we wld have ordered them ourselves. We understand that these things happen but it did seem somewhat slack given Botswana’s reputation - and coming on top of similar service on a visit last year. When we left the bottle of wine was removed from our bill - our pre-dinner drinks were still charged to us. It really wasn’t much fun - and we had been so looking forward to it as it was my husbands birthday. Sincerely Bridie Cooper
We came here years ago when visiting Queenstown and were hoping the restaurant was as wonderful as before. Our meal was even better.
