About Botswana Butchery Queenstown
Located in Queenstown’s historic precinct with spectacular lake views and signature roaring log fires inside and out, Botswana Butchery is one of Queenstown’s most stylish restaurants. It offers a sumptuous menu full of flavor and is consistently rated as one of the resort town’s most popular restaurants, since opening in August 2008.
The ambience is warm and welcoming all year-round, with its roaring log fires, luxurious dining environment and private dining suites to accommodate from two to 30 people.
As well as the main restaurant and al fresco dining options, it has a number of individual private dining rooms on the first floor plus a bar and entertainment area including a plush private lounge for up to 25 patrons. The Garden Room can also accommodate larger groups of up to 30 people for those looking to entertain friends or colleagues privately.
Please don’t tell patrons they are being given a “chefs table” table when you’re actually sticking them around the back of the restaurant, in a poky position next to the service door flapping back and forth non-stop and staff rushing around, shouting etc. Not cool.
Fabulous experience!!! Loved every bite!! Thank you!!
Exceptional service matching superb food with minute detail to every aspect of our visit, including the special celebration. Thank you.
If there were more stars I would've given more stars. The food was exquisite, the atmosphere inviting and the service was exceptional. Thank you for a most memorable experience.
Outstanding service delivery. Very knowledgeable about food and wine pairings. Food and drinks are second to none. Accommodating with near on any request. We will be returning on our next visit.
Great service! Great meal!!
Fantastic lunch with friends.
Our waitress was incredible and made our visit to your restaurant memorable.. she is truly an amazing asset
Lovely meal and top service. Really enjoyed our evening. Thanks
Sorry cocktails were lacking, I advised weeks ago I have a garlic intolerance the advice on the night have steak or fish, nothing more! I feel the venue has lost the ambience of a few years ago. The Greek salad was a major letdown as it was all leaf, which is not a Greek salad! I am over tip pressure when spending a good amount of cash!
Our group had not been together for quite awhile so needed time, food and wine to catch up on our activities. Botswana provided us with all three requirement in an excellent manner. The food was beautifully prepared and presented. Even though the restaurant was exceptionally busy each dish was perfect. The wine list provided us with a beautiful selection and the service was extremely helpful without being intrusive. Thanks Botswana for adding to out night by allowing us to book extra time!
Beautiful Meal and great service. Woukd definitely dine here again
Scallops & scampi wasn’t presented well, scallops were very small in size - definitely expected bigger scallops & potentially needed to be presented on a smaller plate. Creamy tomato soup was perfect and bursting with flavour. Meat was incredible - eye filet and beef short rib were to cooked perfection. Sides were very average, chips were over cooked and broke into pieces when stabbed with a fork, iceberg salad was almost slimy, green peppercorn sauce was like gravy, mushrooms hardly had any garlic on them - Mac&cheese with bacon was delicious. Service was excellent - wait time for drinks was too long, took a wine recommendation from the waitress and it was an fab option to compliment the meal but was served in a white wine glass!! Would return!!
Fantastic as always. Beautiful food and great service
This was the best meal we had in queenstown
Excellent food and service
Exceptional food and wine experience
We had a wonderful night at Botswana Butchery, from the time we arrived till we left, the service was excellent with a very polished waiter, we did not order entrees as we had sweets, our food arrived beautifully presented with great tastes and aromas, I can say it deserves the wonderful reputation it has. I will come again and be happy to recommend,
Food was amazing, the staff were helpful and friendly, went above and beyond.
We had our wedding dinner with family in the garden room and it was amazing! Great food, great service and they were even happy with us having live music. Perfect way to round off the wedding celebrations. Thanks to our waiter who looked after us very well.
Excellent food. The Lamb was by far the best I have had in a while, Superb customer service. Highly Recommend.
Amazing meal in a wonderful location. The flavours were thoughtfully paired. Staff were friendly and very knowledgeable. First time I've been to a very busy restaurant where it felt like we were the only ones there. The staff were attentive, service was prompt, and we were encouraged to take our time, even though we had a late reservation and this meant we were there until closing. Leave room for dessert. It's a must have.
This is definitely fine dining. We loved our meal, atmosphere and service, especially from our very helpful and friendly waiter Louis. We will be back on our next trip and have recommended it to family and friends! Thank you.
Phenomenal service, food, wine and atmosphere. We will most certainly be visiting again! Thank you team! Special thanks to Kelly who was our wonderful Hostess and who our sons fell in love with!
