How lucky are we to live on New Zealand's South Island? Nowhere in New Zealand is more than 125km from an ocean plentiful of seafood.

Down here we grew up on the beach. As kids we collected clams and mussels, went spear fishing for flounders, watched dad fish for Blue cod and groper, or waited with bated breath when he went diving for crayfish and paua. At home Mum made chips, grew tomatoes and lettuces and kept chooks. Meanwhile the All Blacks were the best rugby team in the world.

Here at Fishbone not too much has changed. We source all our fresh fish and shellfish from the waters around the South Island. We respect what nature offers us and we only source sustainable fish.  Our fish comes straight to us off the fishing boats and is so fresh we don't need to do too much to it. Oh yeah, the All Blacks are still winning.

Still we do like to have a little fun with our cooking.  We travel, we eat seafood and we draw upon these trips through Asia, Europe, America and India for new dishes on our menu we print daily because our fish changes daily.

Back home we grow as much fruit and vegetables we can at Fishbone Farm, including 18 different varieties of heirloom tomatoes. We have our own chooks for eggs and just like mum, we make our own chips, from Southland potatoes, which we cut by hand.

Enjoy fresh fish, the South Island way, at Fishbone, Queenstown's favourite seafood restaurant for over 21 years.

Food was simply exquisite, and the sauces were something special. happened upon this place partly by accident, and it turned out to be a gem.

One of the best restaurant in Queenstown. We ordered Octopus taco, XO sauce clam, Poke, oysters, Blue cod with mushroom risotto, flounder with chips and Kino pasta. Every dishes are very tasty and fresh. Kino pasta came with lemon it would be more than perfect. We definitely come back. Thanks for the great food and wonderful services.

The highlights were the surprisingly new combination of the hazelnut crumb with the freshly caught Blue Cod and the smoked Eel pieces with the tender Gurnard...!

We had oysters as an appetizer which did not taste very fresh but our meals were all amazing. There were 4 of us and we were all very pleased with the entrees. The seafood was cooked perfectly and each dish had some very unique and delicious flavors.

A truly Queenstown seafood restaurant. Had a great time there with a variety of good tasting seafood options. The amazing thing to see is that the chefs seem so happy to be there, they were cheerful, friendly and passionate about their food. That's when you know that your meal with be prepared with the most important secret ingredient: love.

Really good for the one who are the big fan of seafood,fish...etc. Waiter are friendly,kind, have a knowlege about the menu... I would say they are more than waiter/waitress cause I went there and my uncle’s phone accidentally died so yeah they gave him a charger. The vibe was good. I felt a little bit surprise with the taste. Discount is not include just crayfish... so you can have seafood platter without crayfish and still have First Table deal. That was my first time (yesterday) and there will be second time.

There are three things you want from a restaurant: Great food, great service and a nice environment. Fishbone scored tops on all three. As always, the food and service were faultless. We had a minor issue (nothing to do with the restaurant) going on, and our waiter was sensitive to the situation and timing, and didn't let it phase him. It was a great night out. Highly recommended!

There are a few restaurants around that profess to be great " Fish " restaurants , one has just opened in Wanaka , but it , like most others flatter to deceive .....they put pictures of fish on the walls , throw around a few fishing artifacts , maybe even shove in a fish tank and think they're a " Fish " restaurant !!!!
NOT FISHBONE in Queenstown ..... this has nearly all of the above , but what sets it apart is the authenticity , quality , freshness of the cuisine and the prompt , professional and friendly delivery of same .
If you are ever in Queenstown and have a " Feeling for a Flounder " or a " Sensation for some Salmon " , head straight to FISHBONE ...... YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED .....and if they still have the " Squid in Black Ink " be adventurous .... it's so well worth it ......Francis

Thanks for having us Fishbone. The staff were lovely & very informative. My kids enjoyed the colouring sheets (as did I)! We tried a range of starters. Prawn tacos were very tasty, Chowder, although quite runny had a great smokiness to it. We loved the anchovy pesto on the heirloom tomato salad & fought for the last smear to go with our chips. Tuna poke looked great, some of the pieces at bottom were stuck together with a bit of sinew & just a small delay on meals even though we ordered before others...think chefs like to bang out all the 'seafood platters together'. Boy was I glad we only got ONE dark chocolate tart to share! So rich & delicious...we definitely rolled onto the couch at home afterwards. Lovely decor & marine artworks, immaculately clean bathrooms. Will be recommending to my travellers for sure.

Service was awesome. Meal was great. I do think that a bit more effort could have been made with the salad. It consisted of a few lettuce leaves nothing else at all which was a bit disappointing. .

We've been to fishbone the second time.
Still a very good restaurant! Try the oysters!
We had the Tarakihi and Whole Flounder as main course. In my opinion a little bit too much oil.

Service was always kind and attentive.
Thank you!
