Known as much for its warm welcome as its dedication to fresh Kiwi produce, this steak and seafood restaurant is a firm favourite amongst Queenstown locals.

Inside, expect an intimate, cozy atmosphere and crackling fire or dine al-fresco and take in the busy happenings of Queenstown Mall with view to Lake Wakatipu.

The menu reads like a roll call of the most delicious produce New Zealand has to offer. Entrees include their signature seafood chowder and native mussels served in fragrant white wine & garlic sauce, while a main of local crayfish glistening with garlic butter is unmissable. Feeling friendly or just super hungry? Don’t miss the magnificent seafood platter!

Meat-lovers can take their pick from a fantastic selection of beef, lamb and pork dishes. From chargrilled steak with your selection of sauces to herb-crusted lamb and South Island venison, quality and flavour are guaranteed.

Their comprehensive Kiwi and Australian wine list has a particular focus on Central Otago Pinot Noirs and Marlborough Sauvignon Blancs. Open from breakfast until dinner.

We thoroughly enjoyed our evening. The food was amazing - lamb rack and fillet steak with sides of truffle fries and vegetables. Waffle cup with strawberries and ice cream and the chocolate hazelnut ball for dessert. Staff were fantastic. I lost count of how many people they turned away due to being fully booked. Very fortunate to have eaten here!

The best Eggs Benedict and the best Chowder. Such a fun interior: vintage-yet-modern. Everything was perfect!

Fantastic service and amazing food - I left sooo full! I love how cosy it is inside, has such a lovely atmosphere. We were well informed of how the menu worked (eg sides are generous and good to share), and they were super helpful with dietary requirements, clearly knowledgable in how things were cooked in the kitchen and double checking with us what could and couldn’t be eaten (dairy and gluten). Would definitely recommend eating here we loved it :)

Two of us popped in for lunch. The restaurant is not large, interestingly laid out, and has a back door. We had the oysters au naturalle and the blue cod with chips. Both served promptly, well presented, and delicious. Then a coffee and back out to enjoy some more of Queenstown.

Best steak in town!!
My partner and I went for a early dinner at Captains on Sunday and we absolutely loved it!
The waitresses were really nice and the service was quite fast.
We had the oysters as a starter (delicious), and we had the salmon and a steak as mains. Everything was cooked perfectly, and really tasty. I have been living in Queenstown for the past 2 and a half years and that steak was the best I ever had in town!
Highly recommend dinning there!

Lovely finding experience. Unfortunately we were given the wrong steak and wasn't sure this was the case until we were given our bill. We didn't kick up a fuss but the waitress was very apologetic and offered idea dessert, as we were too full we declined this and she took our drinks off the bill. We thought this was very kind of her!

As usual a sterling job from the Captains team! Big fan of seafood so the salmon and mussels are fab, the best for me though is the calamari! We also had the lamb rack which is amazing, slow cooked to perfection.
Great setting outside on Mall St too, great for people watching, and some great tunes from the busker opposite.
