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.....❤️

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.

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.
