Came here with my tour group. Buffet style restaurant. Since it wa buffet, long lines. Food was ok. But it's the views that are breath-taking. The Gondola takes you to the top.

Went there for dinner at the early session hoping to get one luge ride in before but by the time we found our way to the poorly sign posted ticket office they had stopped selling tickets! We had dinner and asked if we could come back tomorrow as we weren't able to ride, they said yes but we had to pay again. Lucky my husband asked someone else and they gave us a pass to come back. Dinner was ok, we were sat far from the window so couldn't see anything. An experience that we won't be doing again if we visit again.

Dear Justine B,
Thank you for visiting us and for taking the time to write a review about your experience. Exceeding our customers expectations is one of our top priorities and I am really sorry to hear that you feel we let you down with our customer service on the night. Although there are several points of sales for the Luge in our complex , we have noted your comments regarding the need of more obvious signage and we are committed to take steps in order to avoid future confusion. We would like to welcome you back as soon as possible especially that we are planning considerable changes in the near future in our restaurant and I am confident that the experience of your next visit will be considerably different.

The food was buffet style, but quality was far superior to usual buffets. The views were the greatest! Made for a wonderful first impression of Queenstown!

Located on hills above Queenstown, the gondola ride to get there is a hoot. The place has amazing views. We ate at the restaurant, and had the buffet, which was very good, with a wide variety of items. The service was good, and there was even a live musician playing. Everyone in our party really enjoyed this place and I would recommend it if visiting QUeenstown.
