Absolutely perfect, everything!
Exceptional food, location, ambience and service. Thank you for a memorable evening.
Wonderful! Thanks especially to Ella for making our experience extra special.
The best overall meal experience I have ever had. Can't wait to come back.
Lovely staff and excellent service. Great cocktails. Beautiful food with great flavours but portion sizes were lacking.
A lovely dining experience with friendly efficient service, we will be regulars having moved to Queenstown.
We chose Botswana Butchery based on the online recommendations of others and it surpassed our expectations. From meeting our early request for a special seating to match our celebration, to the fabulous menu and wine list, the care and attention of the service team and the beautifully prepared food and recognition of our celebration. It was one of the highlights of our trip to Queenstown and one that will be long remembered.
The waiter was ok but the Sommelier was hopeless. He clearly had no idea of NZ and Australian red wines, which is essential for where this restaurant positions itself. As a result the wine suggestion for our food was poor and left us underwhelmed about the whole experience. We also had a very average table, despite booking months in advance and requesting a pleasant view. Once a table opened up, other guests took it rather than being offered to us. As a frequent diner I expected better treatment. My first disappointing dinner after many visits. I hope this is not the start of a trend...
A special place for dinner and drinks. Our waitress was fantastic, a tiny bit pricey given the size of the meals. You are paying for the name & place!!
Very pleasant afternoon with warm friendly service. Thank you.
Had a great night. Lily really looked after us for our special occasion
We had the most delicious lunch of our trip to NZ. We were chose Botswana Butchery to celebrate our anniversary and my partner's birthday. It was a totally enjoyable and memorable experience. Great venue, food and wine, and excellent service, especially from Ella. Thank you. We'll be back again. Gwyn
Great location great food great service will certainly be back!
Amazing food and wonderful service!
Delicious food and wine with terrific service. Oysters (we went back for round 2) and gnocchi for entree were both delicious and the chef's special lamb rack was incredible! Our table looked out over the lake - couldn't be topped!
Highly recommended, great food, service and atmosphere. Staff is friendly and helpful.
Excellent Location, however I did not like looking out the window from inside, looking directly into another couple eating dinner, and I'm sure they felt the same. Food was excellent, the Market Fish amazing.
Lovely dinner in private room!
Best meal I’ve had in a while Delicious!!
Our waitress was outstanding and knowledgeable. The food was very good.
We had our wedding reception in th Garden Room and we had a fantastic experience. The room, the atmosphere, food and service were exceptional. We couldn’t of dreamed of a better wedding reception, ourselves and our guests had a truly lovely time. Everything went perfect, from the initial planning stages/meetings to the meal itself . We would highly recommend Botswana to others and can’t wait to dine there again.
Thanks for a fabulous dining experience!
Waiter was terrible. First he forgot the bread we ordered. Then he completely forgot about our table. We waited almost 2 hours before we were served our main dish (rack of lamb) and the food was served very cold. We were not happy. For the amount of money that you charge, service should be much better and the food should be served hot. I should have gone to Madame Woo or Rata instead because food and service is much better and price is much cheaper.
