Excellent service. Bread and dips great. Pea and ham soup delicious. Margarita cocktail desperately needs improvement. It was very ordinary. I seriously suggest that you pay for the bartender to attend Boardwalk bar here in Queenstown.and compare their delicious Margarita with the one provided at South Eatery. The salmon was superb. Unfortunately it was plated in "pub" style. A heap of chips and a heap of green leaves with the fish on top. Better, I think, to serve the chips in another bowl and maybe even the salad leaves.

Really good quality food. My tandoori chicken dish was delicious and the steak was cooked to perfection. They do a pretty good long island iced tea. I had 2! Would definately be back to try out some more dishes. Service was great. Thank you very much for a lovely evening.

It was an amazing dining experience. The staff went above and beyond in accommodating my young family. With a 1 and a 3yo we rarely get this level of hospitality. Thanks once again for a wonderful time.

Beautiful location, attentive service and quality food. The duo of lamb was delicious, as was my side of garlic and herb mash. The panoramic view of the lake makes this a very special place to dine.

Staff are lovely and welcoming. Ralph looked after us in the restaurant and he was exceptional- helpful, polite and very professional. Meal was delicious especially the green lipped mussels entree and the lamb medley for main course. Thank you.

Delicious mussels. Staff very friendly. My partner had the steak on mash it was delicious only thing was they put a little too much flavour on it for our liking but cant complain we booked with first table so everything was half price :) Everything was good. Highly reccomend

Full prices on meals were quite expensive however with First Table it made for a good deal. Lovely staff.

The service staff were very pleasant however we waited over an hour for our meals. The side of vegetables came out 10 minutes before the other food. Diners who arrived 30 minutes after us received their food before us. We were told the wait time was because the steak was to be well done. We wanted to order dessert however no one came to take our order so we decided to leave. Staff were aware we wanted dessert as we had asked for the menu. When paying the bill no one apologized for the wait time. Beautiful setting.

We arrived on a late afternoon flight and made a booking for 6pm for 2 adults and 2 children. With my work I travel a lot and stay at the Accor Group hotels regularly. At 6pm we were the first to be seated, at 6.05pm we placed an order for 2 x toasted sandwiches and fries for the children. We ordered 1 x lamb and 1 x pork. We kept asking when would our food arrive, we saw other people sat next to us receive their meals for their entire table. The chidren's meals took 40 minutes to arrive, plus they were cold. Bear in mind there were only probably 4 tables occupied in the restaurant. We kept asking where are our adult mains, they finally came out at 7pm - nearly an hour after ordering. They were small in size, plus the meat on both of them was cold. It was like the chef had cooked the meat and put it side for sometime whilst the other parts of the meal were put together. We complained to the restaurant manager who then credited us the meal, which was a nice gesture, but that wasn't the point. We wanted a nice experience for the family, but this did not eventuate. Would never eat there again.
