Cuisine: A La Carte, Seafood, Steakhouse
Price Point: Mains from $25 - $35+

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.

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.

Food was ok. Disappointing that a couple of the major items on the menu weren't included in the First Table dining experience. We were aware of this at the time of booking, but still it would have been nice. Staff were friendly. Lovely atmosphere

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.

Food was awesome! We had the scallops, seafood chowder, prawns and a steak. We tried many restaurants in queenstown and Captains is in my top 3. The service was impeccable. Offered to taste the wine before we ordered. Allways asked if everyting was okay. Polite and always had a smile. Will definitely come back. 5 stars

A very pleasant evening enjoyed by all in our group. Dining early gave us quick efficient service in a quieter atmosphere. Our meals were very tasty with the eye fillet steak cooked just how we like it! Portion sizes great too, not so large that one can't eat it all. will definitely be back :)

The staff were really nice but the food was even better. I had the 200g eye filled with herbed roasted baby potatoes and as a dessert the Berry & white chocolate cheesecake. Everything was just amazing. I would always come back and I really can recommend this place!
