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.
Drinks were the best part. Food was good but nothing spectacular. Cute nibbles that are quite filling. Would go again for drinks and views.
The food was so delicious!!!! We loved it so much and would definitely come back
Great service. We have had a fav night out with work colleagues. Food was amazing and services was great. I would highly recommend :-)
Hi, was a great night. Good service and all the dishes were excellent.
Great friendly and efficient service and the food was amazing!
All food was deep fried and salads were dressed with to much oil Overall very disappointing
The service is great. The sharing concept as well. Very good food!
Warm & friendly greeting - which is always nice. Personnel prepared to engage in conversation - which I appreciate. Each dish had distinctive character & flavours & we enjoyed sharing our selections from the Snacks menu. An excellent dining experience
I actually booked for the wrong night but the staff members were very understanding and knowledgeable. Our evening was perfect just like the food and beverages provided. Cool little spot too 10/10
Fantastic time and good snd sangria 😀
Amazing experience & very yummy food!
Very good service food great will be back thanks
We really enjoyed everything we ordered and such a lovely spot, right beside the Earnslaw. Fillet steak was excellent as was the honeyed parsnips and delicious baked camembert. Thank-you
Really Good vegan options.
We had a selection of 4 different meats. 3 were amazing, but the venison was way under cooked.
Awesome food and decor. Staff were friendly and attentive.
Superb food. Great vegetarian options
We had a great time. Food came out fast and was delicious! We will definitely be back soon!
Great food, great service, cosy with mountain views on the water front. Caters for dietary requirements with lots of dairy free and gluten free options. Will defs be back
Food was so tasty. Staff were amazing at accommodating myself, my husband and our four month old son. Food was brought out quickly and mouth wateringly good. We will be back next time we visit queenstown
We went to Public Kitchen to say goodbye to my brother who came to visit me. We just regret not going there to welcome him so we could go there again. It was just perfect. The food was delicious. The staff was super nice. We loved the way they serve the food, designed to share. Looking forward to going back there.
Enjoyed the shared plates. Four plates were ample for two people. Food was great, especially the pork crackling!
My partner and I had a lovely evening at Public Kitchen and Bar. We arrived an hour early and were grateful that there was room to accommodate us early. The food was delicious and we enjoyed the oysters, mussels and lamb, as well as the wine. We had wanted cheese in the evening but were advised against ordering too much. At dessert we still wanted cheese and ordered from the entree list but it was served without cutlery and was too hot to handle. It was a lovely evening nonetheless. Thank you.
