Absolute lovely night! Fantastic food! Great service!
Really enjoyed our experience at Rata. Exceptional service which we really enjoyed. Our waitress was really knowledgeable about the menu and made things very easy for the coeliac in the group. Really liked the variety on the menu. Great service but unpretentious. Spot on. Will definitely be back.
We had the most amazing experience dining at Rata. The attention to detail was impeccable. From the cocktails, to the food and the staff, every part of our visit to Rata gets a raving review from us. They even served a special birthday dessert for me! Thanks again to the entire team for ending my day with a bang!
Wonderful evening thank you
The staff are amazing! A special thanks to Jo who was superb! The food was wonderfully presented and tasted amazing. The whole experience at Rata was one not to miss
A very professional experience! The staff were so amazing and made us feel super special. The food was absolutely amazing! Super tasty. Would recommend anyone to go here
Great food and service would be nice to have more choice of wines by the glass as it’s nice to match wine with course. An enjoyable evening.
We throughly enjoyed our meal and dining experience.
Fabulous food, wine a bit pricey but a great time was had by all
One of the best dining experiences in awhile. The food was fantastic but everything else was also done very well. This made it a fun and relaxed evening!
Best food I’ve ever eaten! Incredible service too.
Amazing flavour combinations, very good serving sizes, service was great, especially the wine knowledge, could do with more wine by the glass options. Definitely coming back again!
Amazing food, excellent service, great atmosphere. My wife and I wanted a fine dining experience to help celebrate our honeymoon holiday and were blown away by the service we received right from walking in the door. Hats off to management for hiring wonderful staff both front and back of house. Awesome work guys. We will definitely be back!!
Rātā was an absolutely incredible dining experience. The staff were friendly, attentive, and were able to provide excellent advice on the food and drink pairings. Our four courses were amazing. We will absolutely be returning on future holidays to Queenstown.
We had a lovely dining experience - beautiful food, service second to none and a lovely setting outside. Would highly recommend.
Delicious and gorgeously presented lunch. Always recommend.
Our server Lisa was fantastic and made sure we were well looked after. Will definitely be back next time we're in Queenstown.
Really enjoyed the whole Rata experience. The food was fantastic as was the service! The waiting staff were able to offer excellent advice about food and wine choices. Thank you!
Beautiful good, amazing service. We visited for my husband's 50th and Rata laid on the special treatment for him! Would be happy to recommend and will definitely dine again when visiting Queenstown.
Exceptional food, beverages and service. Thanks team Rata
We had an amazing time,the food was beautiful and the staff were very professional,can’t wait for our next birthday to come back.
3rd visit - food and service always exceptional. perhaps the selection of mains could have had a chicken or pork dish included. awesome restaurant and one thing that differentiates from others is the waiters/waitresses knowledge of the menu and drinks/cocktails without having to “go away and ask”
I hadn’t been back to Rātā in over 5 years and it didn’t disappoint. While the menu isn’t extensive it has been carefully crafted with a variety of unique and delicious dishes.
The food was absolutely beautiful. One of the best meals I’ve had in a long time. The service and atmosphere was great. Can’t wait to eat here again next time we are in Queenstown!
One of the best meals we have ever had, thank you all much. The beef main in particular was mind blowing.
