“beautiful seafood”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2012

Finz was an excellent choice and they had Bluffies!! The salmon was absolutely the best ever and the monk fish was perfectly cooked. If you want a special wine there is another wine list and the waitress was well versed in the selection. Check it out.

“Dinner on the Wharf”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 April 2012 via mobile

An eccellent meal. We shared a seafood platter and found it to be excellent. It is in at a great location at Steamers wharf and it was quite interesting to see coal being loaded into the steamboat while we were enjoying a pre dinner drink. The service was very good and we intend to return in July. The Steamboat was what drew us to the wharf in the first place and it was good to see the activity while we were enjoying such a fine meal.

Greetings,

We are very pleased that you enjoyed your Finz dining experience. We love having the "Lady of the Lake" just out our front window. She adds a bit of something special to what is already a spectacular view.

Please come and see us again on your next visit to Queenstown.

Warm Regards,

“Thanks Finz, we'll be back....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2012

We dined here recently, choosing the place because of it's location and also a recommendation from seafood-loving friends of ours who knew we'd enjoy it!! Having lived in Queenstown many years ago I am embarrassed to say that I'd never tried Finz before, though had been to Fishbone, another seafood place in town which I'd always loved and recommended - well Finz is just as wonderful and just as recommendable and I wish I'd been in there sooner. Great service, great ambiance, superb surroundings and the food was excellent. Of course it also enjoys one of the best locations and views in town. I'd recommend this place to anyone who loves seafood, but also Finz caters for the non-fish people. The seafood platter was outstanding, it had it all. The salt and pepper squid was divine, really light yet plenty of squid. And for the non-fish-eater of our group (weirdo not liking seafood, but everyone has their faults I guess) the rib-eye is apparently tender, tasty and cooked to perfection. All washed down with a Mondillo pinot noir, expertly described and recommended by our friendly waiter! Thanks Finz, we'll be back.
