Queenstown Food and Wine

Delectable food and a great night out are always on the menu in Queenstown


There are more than 150 restaurants, bars and cafes to choose from in the Queenstown region, as well as takeaway options, specialty food shops, wineries and markets selling local produce. Enjoy something different during your stay – no two meals will be the same, but each as fresh and delicious.

And after wining and dining, head out to experience Queenstown’s lively nightlife. No matter what day of the week, you’ll find a fun atmosphere in bars and nightclubs, and live music and DJs to entertain.

The growing reputation of Queenstown, New Zealand as ‘foodie heaven’ was been reinforced by a top award from the world’s largest travel website. The TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice  Food and Wine Destination Awards  for the South Pacific region.

Coming first in New Zealand and just behind culinary big-hitters Melbourne and Sydney, this firmly cements Queenstown’s position as a world-class food and wine destination. The awards are based on the most highly-rated food and wine destinations as recommended by millions of travellers from around the globe.



Known, in particular, for its Pinot Noir, Queenstown and nearby Gibbston Valley are home to over 75 wineries producing a wide range of wine varieties.

Visit a wide variety of vineyards, do a wine tasting, and enjoy a glass on a wine tour, or at one of Queenstown’s numerous downtown cafes or restaurants. The selection of Queenstown winery restaurants also offers exceptional wine, food and views!

If you want to take in a few of these wineries there are wine tours available or download the essential Gibbston Valley Wine Map and take yourself and friends on a great day out.
