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.
Great food. Love the "share" concept and the look of the plates!
Good amount of food. Service was a bit low but it was very busy so understandable! Squid was overcooked but the rest of the food was beautiful. Will be back!
Public is a great place to dine, the Chef did some beautiful meals for us with great tastes. Thank you!
Great meal, friendly service
Trust the chef is a great option for groups, lots of variety great food
Great place for a casual meal with great beer and good food. Would go back for the Pork Sticks and day!
Great dining experience. Very amazing and delicious food. Always smiling and ready to help staff members. Would rate 10 out of 10!!
Great experience. We enjoyed everything we tried. The desserts were particularly delicious.
Pork belly sticks are off the chart and the best fried chicken we’ve ever had. Couldn’t recommend highly enough
Food was amazing and the selection. Will be back.
I think I am up to my 5th time here... obviously love it :)
Delicious meal, great customer service. Highly recommend
Everything was fine, great food. I Just wanna point out some things in order to help to improve the service. I'm from Brazil and I found a bit difficult to understand what one of the waitresses was saying. I went twice to the restaurant, in the first time I ordered a rose sparkling wine by the glass, I thought it was not so sparkling and I think it was served in a temperature that wasn't cold as I expected. In the second time I got the First Table discount! It was awesome! Thanks! Best regards.
Love the food, love the atmosphere, sometimes it can be a little loud for my parents but we love it. Staff are amazing and so is the ginger bear. While it can be pricey they also have great specials.
Amazing food , great location and wonderful staff.
Pav was awesome!
Great place for our family celebration dinner! Everyone enjoyed the meal from the 22month old upwards!! Thank you for a great experience in a wonderful setting! Victoria
Very nice, excellent wait staff. Didn't think the eye fillet steak was very good quality this time and had a bit of a funny marinated taste even though it wasn't said to be marinated on the menu. Also the duck fat potatoes should have been called potato wedges because that's what they were.
We’ve come here 3 times now during various visits to Queenstown. Food is awesome. Love sharing plates. We had a few people serve us on this occasion. One really stood out (a male, not sure of his name). He was super friendly & made us feel totally at ease. Well priced & good variety of wine as well good serving sizes. Thanks PKB
Thanks for a great dinner:-)
Thank you for a fantastic evening.
We were a group of 13 and opted for the Trust the Chef dining experience. Loved the variety of dishes that came out and we did actually struggle to finish everything! Definitely great value for money. Thanks team for an amazing evening!
We really enjoyed our meal, thank you
Staff were fantastic. We had trust the chef. Absolutely awesome and so worth it.
