Amazing view , food and service
We really enjoyed dining here. Staff were all friendly and welcoming. The food was excellent and the view outstanding.
Staff were very good, views were fantastic. I had the lamb shanks a little tasteless and swamp in tasteless gravy, think a jus would of been better. My wife had the pork which was very tasty.
Great way to end our Queenstown experience. Awesome food and service coupled with the spectacular view.
We enjoyed our meal, the service was very good.
Beautiful view, good, attentive service. Unfortunately, it was down hill from there. Very simple, uninspiring menu of the level of basic pub food. No real starters on the menu, ordered some bread and deep fried squid and chicken to start which our kids enjoyed. The mains were a big let down. Rock solid, inedible kumara and undercooked gritty polenta left a large section of Two of our mains inedible. The chicken portion was small so my husband was left hungry as the polenta was inedible. As we were still hungry; we ordered deserts which were the highlight of the meal, again very basic pub style but very tasty. The prices are on the high side compared to the other restaurants in the area so I expected far more from the food.
Awesome dining experience. The venue was outstanding with perhaps the best view in Queenstown. Very attentive and friendly staff. The food was delicious. The only thing which made my score a 90 instead of a 100 was the main dish (lamb Shanks) could have been hotter.It must have sat for five minutes before it came out. It was still delicious and I would not hesitate to return.
Dined out with friends and we all had great meals and great service and would recommend to anyone.
Food was great. But didn't expect a private dining to be held at the same time, thus only a small corner was allocated to outside diners. Felt a bit 'left out' as we were just by the corner. But food was delicious.
Staff was perfect, so accommodating and helpful. Really lovely setting. It was a little late for us to be able to enjoy the views but it was nevertheless a very nice environment. Good food, it was great that our starter actually came out before our mains since it seems they often all show up together in a lot of places. Will definitely be dining here again.
The food was very poor we all felt disappointed with the quality of the food. I don’t normally complain but this was not a pleasant experience. The girl serving us was pleasant and helpful but the time between ordering drinks and food and getting it was too long.
It was the most atmosphere. In addition, the food was so delicious. And I can use the welcome drink coupon while having dinner
Our second time at this restaurant, the food is very good and the desert is also amazing
I made a reservation one month in advance and of course my name wasnt in the reservations. l also don't understand why you cant take your leftovers home. If I'm paying for my meal I should be able to take it home.
Good service and the food are delicious. Lake view restaurant. Nice one.
Lovely views Great food and beautiful atmosphere
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.
The service was excellent but the food quality was very average
Excellent service and yummy food
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.
Disappointed with the quality of food. Service was very good.
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.
Amazing service and beautiful food. I'm never disappointed when I dine at South Eatery.
