About Public Kitchen & Bar
Offering exceptional local cuisine, Public Kitchen is all about local produce caught in the hills or farmed down the road or caught off the coast. The closest restaurant to the lake the outdoor terrace is a must dining option to take in the views and enjoy the exceptional sharing dishes on offer.
Fantastic food with thoughtful and helpful staff. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Highly recommended.
Staff were very accommodating when we arrived with 2 extra unannounced diners. Waitresses were very attentive and made excellent recommendations on both food and quantities. The manager on the night was wonderful very engaging and peasant. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience. Many thanks.
Awesome service, we were made to feel welcome from start to finish.
Great atmosphere service and food highly recommend
The food and service was great, we really enjoyed the sharing concept, we will definitely be coming back again.
Awesome food and services - a must when visiting Queenstown.
Food was quite nice but the 'mains' were ridiculously overpriced for such tiny portions, it would be reasonable to pay less than half for what they charge - they were too small to even be suitable starters. Food also took ages to come out. We had to get more food afterwards somewhere else to have a proper meal!
Perfect evening to catch up with old friends. Had a quiet table in the corner with a screen behind; great for chatting. Had chefs choice, plenty of good food.
Really good night out early in week. Great service and enjoyed chef selection, lamb and salmon very good as was whistled silverbeet. Great way to sample across the menu.
You can see my review on google reviews. Wasn't very happy.
I've dined here many times over the years and each time has been great, this visit was no exception. +1 had not dined here before so it was nice the staff explained the menu for us. Service was quick and efficient, while I personally wouldn't order what we had again (except the duck, that was great), that's all good as First Table allows me to try out new things with no regrets!
Amazing staff and food! Couldn’t fault it!! Will eat here again
Food and service was fantastic as always.
Not a lot of food for the amount charged
amazing food and super friendly staff, will definitely be back!
It was great dinner experience! I invited my friend and she also enjoyed every dishes and drinks. The staffs are friendly and the atmosphere is cozy. I’d love to come again soon!
Food was great as usual although our chicken nibbles took a long time and when they arrived they were not heated through. Would still recommend.
Absolutely delicious - our favourite dinner during our 6 night stay in Queenstown. Will definitely visit again next time we're in town.
Awesome staff, excellent food. Local's favourite!
Had a delicious food experience sharing dishes between friends & fantastic service.
The service we received and meal we enjoyed made this special double birthday celebration such a memorable evening. Thank you!
We did the trust the chef option it was amazing. There were so many options that we wouldn’t have normally chose off the menu that were delicious! Would definitely recommend trying this option!
Amazing food and the service was outstanding. The birthday pavlova was a special treat too. I would definitely recommend Public Bar & Kitchen to anyone and everyone. Thanks for a fantastic evening.
Our first meal in Queenstown this holiday and it was perfect. Waitstaff were great, explained well and our only complaint about the food - tooooo much! Loved the beef ribs and the lamb rump. Great start to our week.
A great night with good food and lovely staff.
