Great pub food! Whitebait was a treat! The open fire added atmosphere and warmth but all of our clothes came away smelling of smoke!

Ey up the Burger and Pizza came at same time and were very very good - just what my wife required after a hard marathon.-The Queenstown Marathon was on so it was BIG day in Arrowtown but still we didn't wait too long and got individual attention. The lad behind the bar couldn't have been more helpful and pleasant and they were rushed off their feet.

Service was great - friendly and quick. Food was nice - my partner really enjoyed the steak. Beers on tap were quite pricey so had a glass of wine instead. The outdoor balcony area is lovely in the sunshine.

It was lovely to feel welcome again. We haven't set foot in the door of the New Orleans for over 5 years. I heard there were new owners...and we had our fingers crossed. We had a friendly welcome from the moment we walked in, followed by excellent service and a beautiful meal (the mussels were divine!!). Wow what a change! We will be back soon to have a drink by the fireside, and look forward to our next meal there.

Grabbed ourselves a table, chose our meal from the menu, ordered at the bar and it was on our table within 20mins :D My partner had the sole fish and chips which he thoroughly enjoyed! I had the lamb rump steak and it was beautiful! The lamb and veg were cooked perfectly and I made sure to compliment the chef! New owners from 30th April so looking forward to going again and hope the food is just as good :)

They were accommodating even if we came in a bit early. Prompt service and right in the centre of Arrowtown.

Yea I think the whole experience was disappointing. The restaurant looked old and dated and filthy. There was two guys behind the bar who weren’t busy but the bar was very messy. They ran out of wine glasses they ran out of particular tap beer. There was no wait staff when we arrived. No one to greet us. Show us to a table. There was two tables appropriate for our group and they were both full of old dishes. The table with the least amount of rubbish on was the one we picked. The light above us had not been replaced and therefore our table felt very dark. We realised that we needed to serve ourselves. I went to the bar and was directed to the platform above the stairs where there were sticky menus scattered all over the place. The prices immediately jumped out to us as very expensive, so our expectations of the food were high. After waiting and waiting, it was apparent that we needed to order from the bar. I had to set the table with cutlery and we waited. The food didn’t take that long to arrive.
The presentation and quality of the food was way below standard for any place in arrowtown charging those prices.
We decided not to stay for dessert as the experience was just getting worse by the minute.
We paid and left.

Food was very good! Beautiful view of the mountains.
Service could have been better. Waited for 30 minutes for someone to take our order, no-one ever came (although they walked past us plenty of times and we tried waving them to us), eventually I went in to ask and all they said was 'We only take orders over disk'. Well, thanks for telling us earlier!

Later we ordered food and we asked for an extra side dish which never showed. Just to round things off when we asked for coffee after our meal we were told they don't serve coffee after lunch.

All in all tho it was a good meal with good food. Shame about rude staff tho!

Great food at reasonable prices and the atmosphere was great with live entertainment on a Saturday night. The apple crumble for dessert was to die for.

The Asian cuisine was very poor value. Whilst the quality was okay, we thought we’d been given 50% of the food as they knew we were paying 50% of the price!
