Book a First Table now

Close your eyes and picture this [*closes eyes*]...Descending over snow-capped mountains, you land in the home of winter adventure. Grabbing your Thrifty rental car, you head for your Stay Here lakefront accommodation before hitting the heart of town to enjoy dinner at Blue Kanu – we may be a teeny bit biased, but we reckon it’s one of the best spots around.

Waking up in the morning, get your winter warmers on, and drive your fit-for-adventure car up one of Queenstown’s famed mountains for a day of snow-filled fun with lift passes and rental gear. The hard part is choosing... The Remarkables or Coronet Peak.

Cruising down the mountain, warm up with some apres-ski float therapy at City Cave before heading for a casual feast at Queenstown’s iconic pizza bar, Winnies. As the final day arrives, fuel up with breakfast at the fabulous Ivy & Lola’s before heading to Nadi Wellness for a 60-minute massage experience for two – then it’s time to head home with the memories of a lifetime.

Keen? Book six First Table dining experiences on www.firsttable.co.nz from 1 June to 31 August, and you can go into the draw to win. You’ll find a whole new batch of go-to restaurants, all while supporting local businesses over the chillier months #supportlocal. 

So get out there, get exploring and get entering – the home of First Table awaits!
