Reviews

Attiqa was excellent. Have only ever thought of this place as a bar but the food was outstanding! How they churn out such tasty meals from such a wee kitchen is unbelievable. 3 friends sharing tasty tapas whilst sipping on delicious Eldeflower and Kaffir Lime gins from gorgeous glasses and catching up on the gossip is definitely the best way to spend a Friday evening. 50% off the food using First Table certainly encouraged the increase in gin consumption! Highly recommend.

As a Queenstown local, I can safely say that Attiqa provides among the best in town, both in food and beverages, with an array of different flavours all cooked and presented beautifully and thoughtfully. I’d recommend that you order a tapas straight off the menu to get you started as you browse all of the options. We opted to share a series of tapas options and all had different favourites but could agree the flavours were phenomenal. You can’t go wrong with that menu!
Highly recommend dining here at least once, the staff are friendly, the atmosphere is good, and the food is divine!

From the lady the greeted us on the door, and knew who we were when mentioning 1st table, to the staff and the chef, everyone really made an incredible experience!
The bartenders/waiters knew their drinks and what would work asking what tastes she liked and making a perfect drink for her.
The food was exceptional, tasty, fresh and filling! Even though it was tapas the dishes were amazing, and the seafood platter was perfect - scallops, squid, prawns, salmon and so much happiness!!
What a perfect place to just sit in the corner, drink some prosecco and get away from Queenstown whilst looking at the bay!! An exceptional 5* restaurant!!

Attiqa was overall a great experience. Atmosphere is classy but not pretentious; the cozy two person stools overlooking the waterfront would make for a nice date. Wait staff fit the atmosphere, and calmly worked hard. Extensive drink menu plus renowned cocktails (though not cheap ~20$ each) The best part? The food! Competitively constructed and priced for Queenstown, and a great deal with first table. Veal carpaccio was all around amazing, meat near perfect and garnishes to die for. Fried squid was cooked perfectly tender and succulent, though maybe lacking seasoning or acidity, and served with great accompanying ingredients again; aioli is bomb! Churros were cute, decadent, and very satisfying. 10/10 would do again.

From the moment we stepped into Attiqa I was impressed by the customer service. All the staff were very friendly and we were seated quickly.
Bring a Friday night, it was quite busy but our waitress checked on us frequently.
The food was absolutely amazing and we got a lot more than we expected! We ordered two platters, cheese fondue and some of the sticks of meat/cheese. Everything was delicious.. the perfect food to share amongst a group. Dessert was a highlight - definitely recommend the churros with strawberries and chocolate sauce.
Overall we had a fantastic experience at Attiqa. The vibe is great for some casual drinks and snacks, with quite reasonable prices too. Attentive and welcoming staff with a wide variety of drinks and food. We will definitely be back soon!

Amazing! Everything about our experience at Attiqa was amazing. The food was delicious, the plates are perfect for sharing and the perfect size to try a few of the tasty dishes on the menu. The service was probably the best service I have experienced with the most friendly and efficient staff. The food didn't take long to come after ordering and they made sure that we didn't sit with an empty glass. I also loved the cocktail list, they had a cocktail suited to every taste! Attiqa was the coziest, most vibrant little restaurant and loved the live music to add to the atmosphere. It was the perfect place for some dinner and a drink (or more) to unwind on a cold winters night. I am looking forward to trying the rooftop bar in summer.

Attiqa is the very genial Stefano’s upstairs restaurant right in the centre of town. There’s a great atmosphere and the food is so tasty. Stefano recommended a selection of tapas style dishes, including a gorgeous lamb souvlaki, Moroccan chicken, arancini, and squid - beautifully presented and served by the talented Sam - I’m not into cocktails, but I was impressed by the skilful cocktail juggling! And they have my two favourite drinks on tap - Mac’s cloudy apple cider and Hop Rocker beer. With the FT discount on the food it was a great evening out with our friends for a very reasonable price - and we can’t wait to go back and try some more items off the menu! Strongly recommended:)

Excellent attentive service from start to finish. We ordered the seafood platter to share, it was so good. We also chose 2 dishes from the tapas menu as we were feeling quite hungry, we had these as a starter. The mushroom arancini were delightful and the squid was perfectly cooked. All the food was superbly presented. I've already recommended to friends.

Delicious tapas - we loved all of it! A few very tasty G&Ts were consumed too - pretty cool to see such a range. We ended up on the Deck Bar upstairs (same owners) with our last bottle of wine which now has a closing roof - brilliant! Great venues - both highly recommended.

Had a great night and great food - there were 2 of us dining and we had the cheese platter which was much bigger than we expected (which is always great) and along with other sides too meant we had lots of food. The venue itself is very cosy and has a great vibe and a great cocktail list, staff were very helpful. Would recommended

My friends and I had a really lovely experience. The food is like tapas so we chose a bunch of plates to share in the middle. Even though it’s not included, we had the fondue which was delicious and all together our food and a cocktail came down to $40 each which I think was really impressive.

The service was really good we were well looked after and our waitress was very prompt bringing water and menus to our table. We ordered the patatas bravas, the octopus, the lamb koftas, a grainy yogurt salad and the shrimp and pork belly. All dishes were served quickly and were well presented. The taste of each dish was nice I think we both rated the salad as the winner dish as it had quite a unique flavour and interesting texture. All the other dishes weren't very exciting and honestly we could whip up something just as nice if not nicer at home (that being said I am a chef myself) . Overall it was a very enjoyable meal and for the price we payed we can not really complain plus the views were pretty lush. Thanks for lovely service the wines were lovely and. We had an espresso martini which was Fab.

Great setting and atmosphere. Lovely food. Shame the sharing platters are not included but would recommend getting 5-6 bites/tapas dishes. Squid & arancini were a favourite. The choc fondue desert was delish, would have liked a few pieces of fruit with it though.The service was pleasant. Would totally recommend a visit.

On arriving to the restaurant the first thing you heard was the music, which I am afraid to say was loud. Due to the music being loud all of the patrons were having to be just as loud to be heard.
The service was fantastic though, the young lady serving us was friendly and gave good advice when asked and the food was prepared and delivered in a good time.

We went with our two children aged 13 and 11. Attiqa is probably a more mature establishment but didn't detract from the food they offered.
A great assortment of tapas on offer (sharing plates not 50% discounted) the fries were particularly crunchy, the beef milanese, octopus and squid our favourites.

Awesome atmosphere, beautiful cosy spot on a cold winters night. Perfect setting for 'date night' with my partner who was experiencing Queenstown for the first time. Amazing place to have our last dinner after an amazing weekend down there. Food was incredible best squid we've both ever had hands down, tender as anything we couldn't stop talking about it and the beef was falling off the bone! My partner really enjoyed his glass of top shelf whiskey! Dinner with a bottle of Shiraz was greatly enjoyed by both of us, we'll definitely be back!! :) Be prepared to fall into a food coma as you'll want to try everything!!!
