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.
Awesome we had chefs pick was great
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 food and huge portions and friendly staff
Thank you We had a lovely afternoon and the staff were very helpful and friendly
Great food and atmosphere! Everything came out quickly and was super delicious, we can't wait to go back and try more of the huge menu!
Awesome restaurant for sharing food. Great service and great food once again!
Once again, a lovely evening. Thank you for accommodating an extra guest at short notice. Lydia provided outstanding service.
All round great food and service
The food was not good at all... all 6 people were disappointed
Always love the food here.
Fantastic food, great wine selection, friendly service, excellent with dietary restrictions, and that view.
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!
Excellent meal our large group were very happy. Food was all delicious. And there was plenty of it. Highly recommended
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.
Not our first meal at Public Kitchen & Bar. As always an excellent night. We’ll keep coming back every time we visit Queenstown.
Great thank you! good reliable local place
Awesome service and food! Will be back. Chicken with hot sauce was delicious!
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.
Had no disappointment with the big bowl of mussels and clams from the main menu and pork belly burger from the brunch menu :)
Food is delicious! Service is outstanding!
The squid rings was the best i've ever ate. Awesome. I will go back soon.
Great food, generous portions & lovely staff. Great views from table.
Awesome local food and fantastic service!
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.
Outstanding food, lovely staff and a great night. Thank you!
