Had a great night. The food was delicious especially the fish tacos and the rack of lamb. All of staff were very helpful and knew the menu well- especially Liam who recommended us wines and our server Katie. Will be visiting again.

We went to Finz last Sunday and it was truly amazing!!! The service was the best, all the staff is extremely nice and helpful, knowledgeable on the pairing wine/food as well. Then the food, just no words to describe it, I think our little favorites were the shrimp tacos and the mussels!!! I would highly recommend it AND go again!

We had the salmon and mussels in white wine. Salmon is juicy and delicious but the portion is not big. Mussels in white wine is so good. This restaurant is definitely a must go in queenstown.

We had a very good evening. Great location, we were able to see lots of happy visitors and locals enjoying lakeside activities. Good service and food I was delighted to have crayfish although we felt it to be close to minimum legal size. Delicious all the same. Would definitely return.

Great way to end a marvellous day. Greated warmly upon arrival. Our meal arrived quickly. The seafood platter is to die for. The batter on the fresh fish was amazing. Recommend to all sea food lovers.

Finz is hands down my favourite restaurant in Queenstown, I love going with First Table because I can indulge in oysters, crayfish and truffle mash, yet still afford to pay rent (and in this town that’s saying something)
It’s always fresh, cooked to perfection, phenomenal flavours that don’t over power the natural beauty of NZ’s seafood. And the setting itself is stunning. Seated next to the window overlooking the lake. Literally cannot complain.

We have been all around New Zealand for the past 4 weeks and this was undoubtfully the best dining experience we've had. The food was prepared with love and served with generous portions. A rare treat was finding rack of lamb and very tasty salads. This was also the first time for Salmon from Steward Island and this was undescribably delicious.

What a dining experience from start to finish at Finz. Located on the shores of Lake Wakatipu, the venue provides amazing views across the lake with the infamous TSS Earnslaw gracing you with her presence during your dining experience.

Staff were all attentive and friendly and were well equipped to answer any questions we had regarding the menu. Unlike some other restaurants on First Table, no dishes were excluded from the menu which made for a refreshing change.

We had two entrees to start which were the crab & cod cakes (3) and crispy shrimp tacos (2). We found this was a great amount to share as an entree and both dishes were incredibly tasty and well presented. For main we enjoyed the whole baked Southern Sole and Sesame rolled Tuna loin with 2 side dishes including a small beetroot salad and dauphinoise potatos with Sage. Again, everything was wonderfully presented and tasted great. Food service was prompt without feeling rushed.

We ended our dinner with a shared sticky date pudding, which I cannot recommend enough - the hokey pokey ice cream was phenomenal and we will certainly be returning to this restaurant for more!

Thanks to Finz and the team to a wonderful evening.

The food was amazing, specially the Seafood platter and our waitress, Gaia was very warm and accommodating. The only thing that annoyed the dining experience was the really loud din coming from the kitchen - banging dishes and other clanging noises. But otherwise we would recommend the place.

Brilliant, friendly service with a smile. We had an entree of oysters (nice but not as big as bluff oysters), seafood platter (we all loved) and the half crayfish (slightly small but yum). Plus a delicious south island ice tea for all. Totally recommend. We also were seated right by the window so could look out at the lake and watch the people pass by. Great spot. Will definitely be returning.

We took a couple of friends along and we all really enjoyed the food and service. We had a great table by the window. I shared the platter with my husband. Whilst I enjoyed this I don't think I would order again. It was more my husband's preference. Our friends enjoyed their food too.

Really great restaurant with lovely views and nice staff. I had the salmon which was beautiful but even the non fish options were delicious - we had the mushroom rissotto and the the truffle mash potatoes which were also fantastic. I was also impressed with the wine menu as there was plenty of choice. We're locals so we'll definitely be back again :)
