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 went for lunch and I had the ribs, they were delish. Excellent staff, checking up on us regularly and quick service. They were especially kind to my daughter who decided she wanted to sit at the bar to eat her food and colour in pictures provided by the staff. We had a great time!

We've lived in queenstown for years but for some reason have never been to Captains. I was gutted to discover that we've been missing out all of these years, the food was fantastic and service very friendly and knowledgeable. The outside seating was relaxed and great opportunity to soak up the queenstown vibe.
Just when we thought that the meal couldn't get better, the chocolate fondant desserts arrived.
I really, really can't recommend this restaurant enough and we will definitely be back.

Excellent food & great service! We arrived way ahead of time (12:10pm instead of 12:30pm) and were allowed to be seated immediately. Ordered the BBQ ribs, the pasta of the day and the seafood chowder. All dishes were awesome!

Everything was amazing from the minute we walked in. Staff were super friendly. The atmosphere was warm cozy. Food was amazing. Fresh oysters to start, followed by perfectly cooked scallops and prawns. Steak was also cooked to perfection and my husband loved his fish of the day. We will definitely be back.

We had an amazing dinner with sumptuous meal and excellent customer service. The ribs is a champ for me, juicy and complemented very well with its sauce. The seafood chowder is so good and creamy, perfect for starter to warm the cold weather. The place is situated just in the city and very convenient for any tourist. I can say that it is a must go to place whenever in Queenstown.

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!

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.
