Great location, interesting menu but a little confusing as to what is the sharing suggestion i.e. starters &/or main course so our starter came after first of the mains arrived. Tasty food. Service ok but several servers and not sure who was taking charge & confusion with food delivery so cant rate better today.

Excellent restaurant! The service was fast and friendly. Food was great. Good beer and wine selection. A shout-out to our awesome waitress from Iowa (USA). I will recommend Public Kitchen in Queenstown to others. Thank you!

Incredibly beautiful setting by the lake. We sat outside and enjoyed the view. In terms of food everything was very fresh but the flounder fish I ordered was a bit bland. The venison wasn’t bad and my parents really enjoyed their lamb and mussel dishes.

We had a selection of smaller dishes to share which were YUM and plenty between the 2 of us. Extra special l was having the prime spot for watching the Earnslaw come into berth. Would definitely come again.

Great atmosphere and customer service but unfortunately the food was very disappointing. Wasn’t expecting it to be shared meals but even then, the meals were average. I was expecting crispy pork but it was soaking In it’s juices so wasn’t crispy when it got to my table - the caramelised pears didn’t improve the meal. The fried chicken melted in the mouth but tasted a little burnt & sauce wasn’t even spicy. Overpriced for average meals.
