Bangers And Mash were amazing. Don't usually like pork or sausages, but I reconsidered after trying this dish! The name doesn't do it justice. Salmon was to die for, melts in your mouth! Lamb is an absolute must in NZ! Keep coming back here! Amazing quality! Did I say bread was great too?

Busy but that's a good sign.

The food was great. Hearty and good size portions. This restaurant is in the very heart of Queenstown and easy to get to. Highly recommended.

Great ribs - lots of flavour and quality beers on tap. Service was great too. The place has a great vibe and good energy.

Sunday evening was packed in Queenstown and The Ballarat staff found us a table which was fantastic. We had an enjoyable two course meal which was beautifully presented and tasty. The place had a great atmosphere with some interesting things on the wall. We had good service and enjoyed ourselves immensely .

After a big day skiing up at the Remarkables we were in need of some serious sustanance! It was a Friday night and we tried many places around town, all either turning us away completely or telling us there would be an hour plus wait - when we walked into the Ballarat it was busy and we suspected it would be no different but we thought we would give it a shot and thank goodness we did! Even though there was a wait for a table, the lovely waitress who greeted us managed to slot us in right away! The service from then on with our next waitress was attentive, efficient and friendly - I work in hospitality myself and could not fault her. The meals were a while coming out, but it was clearly a very busy night so its totally understandable. I had the ribs which were delicious (that bbq sauce!) and my partner had the rib eye steak which was also incredible! Everything about this place we loved, it warmed us up on a chilly night! Would recommend and will definitely return when we're in Queenstown next.
