An absolute must for any trip to Queenstown! The food is tremendous!!!! The desserts are unbelieveable and if the Pavlova is anything to go by, it's been created in NZ! Sorry ozzies.

The skirt beef was very tasty. Cauliflower bites could be better with a lighter/thinner batter.

We spent a wonderful New Year’s eve at Public Kitchen & Bar. We took the Chef’s taste and had the chance to taste different starters, mains and desserts, it was delicious. And from French people, that means really something !

Took us 30min to be sat down even though we had a reservation, but to be fair we were a group of 12 people and it's the holidays so everything is extremely busy. The waiters did serve us 3 plates of delicious calamari though as a way to apologize for the inconvenience. Most people ordered the mussels and they were a miss, the rest had a great meal so I guess it depends what you order. Overall, great place for drinks and bites.

We dined there the last two nights encountering Paul, Eleanor and Jayne. All were lovely and provided amazing service with our insane food allergies. We couldn’t be more pleased. See you in about two hours for dinner tonight! Tim & Fiona

Came in with friends and shared all of the food. Favourites include the kumura and chickpea bites, duck pancakes, and the pork belly bites. Always a lovely service and atmosphere. Will be back again.

The food was very average in this diner’s view (think fancy pub food) The dishes are made to be shared but I felt they are on the “smaller” portion size. Would loved to have something bubbly but they only had a $22 per glass Mumm. Would appreciate if there’s Prosecco on the menu. The only dish I thought was bad was the blue cod ceviche, there’s absolutely no flavor to the fish and I didn’t think it was very fresh (I could be wrong). Oysters was delicious but needed a vinaigrette. As to the hot dishes, my favorite was the pork belly both beef cheek and lamb, you can give it a miss. If you like pub grub with a view, would defiantly recommend this place as they are at the end of the wharf with beautiful views if you sit outside or by the window. Otherwise, remember your shades. Also, to sit comfortable (for 4 people) ask for the booth.
