Taking up residence in the majestic Eichardt's Private Hotel, Eichardt's Bar has been a Queenstown icon for over a century. With a modern tapas menu and some sizzling cocktails on offer, need we say more?

If you're looking for countryside glamour, you've hit the jackpot! Huge, plush sofas and a magnificent old-school fireplace greet you on arrival; we recommend a before-dinner drink to really soak it in! Then, their dining room is like a modern makeover of a country house, with exposed brick walls, high-end furnishings and intimate lighting, all of which combine to make a cosy, stylish space in which to relax.

Tapas doesn't come better than this and the best thing is that you can mix and match with your dining partner and sample everything! Fill the table with some meaty staples, like the Te Mana lamb cutlets, pork cheek croquettes or the heavenly beef brisket steamed bun which comes with a sweet blackcurrant dipping sauce. Then, pad it out with some fried halloumi, potato gnocchi and a fresh salad.

Fortunately, their speciality cocktails are not designed for sharing; you're going to want the whole thing for yourself! For summer in a glass, opt for the lychee and rose petal martini or keep it classic with Eichardt's bloody mary. Then sit back, relax and enjoy your escape to the country!

We had a wonderful lunch at Eichardt’s Private Bar yesterday. The staff could not have been more welcoming and the decor is beautiful! Seats are lovely and comfy and there is a stunning view of the lake from most of the tables!
We tried virtually everything on the tapas style menu and every dish without exception was delicious and beautifully presented.
Wonderful lunch in a great atmosphere and we will definitely be back for more! :-)

Amazing first time dining here! Definitely will again. The food was amazing! Fresh and good quality. The mocktail suggested by the bartender was unreal. Great service from all of the boys working that day. Can’t wait to be back and definitely recommend !!

It’s always nice to come in from a blizzard to a warm welcome. The staff at Eichardt's did just that, and were knowledgeable and friendly throughout. The tapas style menu was varied and interesting, so much so that we ordered most things

Lovely ambience and attentive wait staff. Delicious cocktail really hit the spot for a fresh afternoon tipple! Food was lovely and perfect for a light lunch - the bruschetta was particularly yummy.

This First Table lunch was absolutely awesome. On arrival we were welcomed warmly and led to a reserved table for us that was one of the best spots in the restaurant. The waitress that looked after us was friendly and efficient and obviously passionate about food. She was attentive throughout taking time to explain and describe each dish. The lunch comprises of a tapas menu that includes a tapas or full serving of their highly recommended Seafood chowder. We ordered two of the tapas soups and a selection of other dishes and sat back to wait. The waitress served us water and got drinks and after a very short wait time we started with our chowder and it did not disappoint in any way, The chowder was so nice. It was rich and creamy and laden with seafood served really hot with ciabatta bread Just delicious Shortly after the other 4 tapas arrived, all cooked perfectly, garnished well and beautifully presented. In fact everything was so nice and after every Last crumb was eaten we were too full to order dessert - the greatest excuse to return. In my opinion both the NZ Whitbait and Mana lamb cutlets are not to be missed. The overall experience rates 11 out of 10 and there is no doubt that we will return. First Table made it ridiculously good value for money and the service was exemplary.Cannot wait to return
