Food is the most delicious I ever tried! Ribs are suuuper tender, a must! We couldn't decide what to order so we had almost every plate in the menu!! And everything was extra good!
Just a tip for anyone who wants the meat cooked well done.. ask for extra well done :)
Beautiful place and amazing food!

Great food, awesome service. Weird dietary requirements taken care of no problem.
I had the Kiwi Burger, hold the cheese, on gluten free bread. My wife had the Chicken salad bowl.
Both meals were quick to come out, very tasty and filling. No sides were needed.
Waitress was very pleasant and attentive. Kitchen did a quick check with me on what I had ordered.
Overall a great experience 10/10

28.12.'19 - We went to lunch at 'The Shelter Bar & Kitchen' at Remarkables Park Shopping Centre, in Frankton, Queenstown yesterday for lunch at 12.00p.m. The Waiter and Waitress we had were great and very helpful. The Menu was fantastic - so much variety. I have Food Sensitivities so had to be careful with what I ordered. There were 4 of us - 2 (including me - I just had the Blue Cod and chips without any extras). And the other person, Neil, also had the F & C with the extras. His wife, Margaret, had the Pub Classic Sirloin Steak and extras, and my hubby, Terry, had Soft Tacos with extras. All said they enjoyed their meals. The Restaurant is large and airy with good spacing between tables. I contacted them ahead of time and told them about my food sensitivities and they were very good and accomodated for everything and I didn't have any reactions. (I always take a bottle of filtered water with me in case if the water they put on the table is choloronated). I always ask when they put the water on the table.
We recommend this Restaurant. Ample car parking. Excellent Menu - whether Lunch or Dinner and the Service in all parts of the Restaurant is excellent.
Take care

Friendly staff and fantastic food in a beautiful location. Delicious desserts delicately designed followed by an awesome coffee! The Shelter is definitely recommended by us, as long term locals. We are proud to support this restaurant and have seen it grow from strength to strength from day one. Congratulations!

What a great atmosphere. Was a busy Friday afternoon and the restaurant was filled with locals enjoying afterwork drinks and early dinners. The service staff was on point! Great job girls! And then there was the food. Kids had pizza off the main menu and they were delicious. I stole a slice or two. Wife had the Blue Cod. Nothing but good words came from her. I had the venison. Great meal with fresh produce. We will definitely be back on our next trip. The view was also something out of a story book. And again want to mention the great service from the waitresses. Thanks Girls!!!

We received a warm welcome and were treated like valued guests by all the staff throughout our visit. The food was excellent. This was described to us as ‘pub food’ but it’s of a standard everyone should aspire to. Thank you to everyone at The Shelter. We’re recommending you highly!!

Amazing food! I am vegetarian and what they do is delicious.

The service and food were the best we have had in Queenstown! We enjoyed three delicious courses and have already picked out what we’ll have for dinner next time we go to The Shelter :-)
Lovely staff and amazing meals - we’ll be back! X

The Shelter Bar and Kitchen is within walking distance from where I live. And I can't believe I haven't been there sooner! The restaurant is very clean and tidy, the staff smiling and ready to assist whenever you need, and the food was so delicious. The entree BBQ pork ribs were so juicy & tender and just fell off the bone, while the pizza's were topped royally. My girlfriend ordered a gluten free pizza base and we couldn't tell the difference between hers and mine. Plus, all the other meals being served to others in the restaurant looked to appetising and there's a good selection of beer & wine, we'll have to go back to experience more of what The Shelter has to offer.

We had a meal which just suited what we needed, prior to an evening flight out of Queenstown. The menu offered options for different eating styles, and each of us found something that suited, even our GF diner. My risotto was excellent, with the fresh vegetables each cooked to perfection.

Four of us had lunch at Shelter to celebrate the end of the working year. All of us had different things and they were all delicious - I will definitely go back for the corn fritters, yum! Service was great also.

The Shelter Bar & Kitchen was the best place to celebrate the end of our half marathon. A way from the hustle and bustle of the the town centre this restaurant is based in the quiet and relaxed Frankton. We could see the tops of the remarkables from where we were seated. As we entered the restaurant we were welcomed by the friendly staff. We felt well looked after. The food was superb! We ordered the smoked salmon pizza and beer battered blue cod for mains, and for desert their caramel cheese cake. Overall, this restaurant was organised and efficient. We would dine again next time we visit Queenstown!!

When we arrived we were offered our choice of tables and chose one looking at the Remarkables as they turned red with the setting sun.
The service was swift and friendly. We were given extra plates so we could share the entree.
We all chose the Blue Cod for a main and it was excellent.
It arrived with a salad and very nice chips but was larger than we could eat.
Overall, we could not have been more satisfied.
