The food service and atmosphere was great. The meals were presented beautifully and tasted delicious. We were seated at the front of the restaurant with a lake view which definitely made the experience memorable. We would highly recommend.

Went there for my birthday dinner with a couple of my girlfriends. Food was divine. Shared the seafood platter for our entree (probably a little too big for the three of us) it was, however, delicious. The blue cod and salt and pepper squid were amazing!!. Went onto a main each: seared tuna, salmon and the lamb rack. Would definitely recommend

Amazing from the moment we walked into Finz Seafood and Grill. Seated by the window with amazing views out over the lake and able to watch the Earnslaw come in and then depart for the evening cruise. Service was prompt and our waiter and waitress were very attentive and friendly. Food was delicious especially the seafood chowder and the roast vegetable salad which were amazing. I would highly recommend this lovely restaurant you wont be disappointed. We will be back on our next visit to Queenstown

Excellent seafood platter, all seafood were very fresh and tasty. We also had the seafood chowder and Tuna. The food was beautifully made, and it was plenty. The environment is very warm and nice, with a look out towards the lake. The waiter was very friendly and nice. Able to provide us good recommendation and the food came out timely. Overall a great evening out for us, and we are very satisfied with both the service and the food.

Everything was amazing!!! Best meal I have had in a long time. The seafood platter was so delicious I loved everything on it. We ordered so many different dishes and finished everything to the point we were almost licking our plates! Will be coming back here next time we are in queenstown.

We were seated at a nice table and was not treated differently when we told the gentlemen we were here for First Table. Service was great and staff were all friendly. This is not the first time we dine at Finz and last time we were in a bigger group which service was also amazing. This time, only the two of us ordered a seafood platter which was enormous and we could not finish! We even had to take food away.

Amazing experience. Super friendly staff. We took our baby as well. The staff helped with the baby chair and put our stroller in their storeroom. Brought some colouring activity too. The foods are super. We live in Queenstown and regret haven't tried this place before. Good variety of food.

I wasn’t sure I wanted to go out for dinner as I’m trying to stick to a new nutrition plan however when I saw the seared tuna on the menu with zoodles I couldn’t resist. The food and service were both perfect, my partner and I had a lovey night. It’s great when you can go out and enjoy a healthy meal and even better when it means you don’t have to break the diet to do so. Will definitely be coming back!

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.

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.

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 :)

Beautiful scenery, with the earnslaw pulling in while we were eating our meals. The food was delicious, fresh and beautiful to look at, we got great photos and had the best time. Our server Alex was the best, he knew the menu well and gave us great recommendations, we did not regret! All the staff were friendly and the food came pretty quickly. Overall, best seafood menu we’ve had in Queenstown in a while, we left happy and satisfied awesome place, highly recommend Finz if your after yummy seafood dishes, can’t wait to go again!

We had a great table right at the window overlooking the Earnslaw Wharf. Our waitress was very friendly and attentive. And the food was delicious! My friend’s risotto was outstanding and by blue cod was also great! I would recommend this place and we will definitely be back. I am local and it was the first time I had ever been, I will for sure recommend to our guests!

We took our boys for early dinner at Finz and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The kids fish and chips was a very generous portion, they loved it.
Our meals of tuna and monkfish were excellent highly recommend. The service was quick which is great when dining with kids. We will definitely be coming back again.

This restaurant has an awesome location! We were able to watch the steam boat come and go, and look out over the water. You don’t want to miss the baby octopus or salt and pepper squid entrees. They were amazing! I had the lamb shank and the meat literally fell of the bone, couldn’t have been cooked better. I highly recommend you give this place a go! You will not be disappointed.

We had a very enjoyable early dinner at Finz. I chose the pan-fried Grouper which was excelllent, my son tried the sirloin which was also good, but perhaps would have been better without already being covered in horseradish sauce - and my wife opted to have two starters, the salt and pepper squid and the seafood chowder. Both the starters were generous portions, so much so that I was lucky enough to be able to sample the squid which was delightful, much better than the usual routine that so many restaurants offer... With attentive service and a gorgeous view of the Lake and the returning TSS Earnslaw, Finz deserves its reputation as a high quality seafood restaurant, and if the horseradish came separately - great steaks too!

Having been to the restaurant before, I've been eager to return to have the Beef Short Rib for a second time. In both occasions I have been pleased with the food and service. Food came out relatively fast, and the restaurant environment was pleasant.

Was a lovely dinner out with girlfriends. The food was delicious especially the starter tacos and tuna for the main. Was a perfect setting with the best view in town despite the rain. Thanks Finz.

I opted for a mix of different small dishes rather than a starter and a main. Everything I had was delicious! Our server was fantastic, very knowledgable and gave spot on, confident recommendations. All dishes were presented beautifully and tasted even better!

Great atmosphere and lovely staff! Very friendly, kind and informative of the menu. All the food was fantastic, fresh and beautiful! Just the chips were a little under-seasoned, and tuna not quite for me, but the octopus was beautiful and delicate!

- dined at Finz Seafood and Grill on

From the moment we walked into Finz we felt so welcome, we were a little early but our waitress took us to our table and quickly offered us a drink and told us the specials for the day.
The table we were seated on was right by the window looking out at the beautiful Remarkables.Absolutely beautiful views right on the lake.
We ordered the Seafood platter for two and boy did it not disappoint. It was a massive serving which I could not eat all my share but luckily my husband got through it all haha. We also had a side of fries and a green salad.
Thanks Finz for your hospitality and great food!

Booked a table for 3 and was seated next to the window where we had a really nice view of the lake. The menu had some *Fins Favourites so we had the BBQ Shortrib, and the Rack of Lamb. They were delicious. We also had chips on the side which were nothing to shout about. Service was really good and the staff was attentive and polite. Would come again.

Great customer service from start until we left. Atmosphere was good, we were a group and we didn’t feel crammed in. Cosy and warm. Loved that colouring was provided for the children, and great idea having paper on the tables for drawing too. The adults enjoyed that part too. Food was average, we were full but not satisfied. Price point was as expected.
