Food was so amazing and the service was spectacular would definitely recommend this restaurant

- dined at Hillside Brasserie on

This was a great meal. I was surprised by the quality of the whole experience. Great atmosphere and we had a table by the window with a lake view. We will be back to eat here again. I have already told friends that we had a great meal.

Lovely food.
My partner had the meat platter and it was huge and very tasty. Meat was cooked just right.
I had the steak and it was also perfectly cooked.

Delicious food which was beautifully presented by friendly, thoughtful staff made Dave’s Birthday Dinner very special. The trio off staff even sang him Happy Birthday when presenting him with his dessert (complete with candle)! They had written Happy Birthday in Chocolate! Soooo sweet! Thanks guys!
Definitely Recommend Hillside Brasserie!

We dined at Hillside on Saturday night.
We were met with a very friendly smiley waiter who was a credit to the Hotel!
I ordered an entree of Sqid which came with a huge salad, enough for a meal its self. ordered a Steak, huge which he said was perfect. My main was Pulled Pork which was complimented with heaps of colourful veges cooked to perfection!
Our dessert was served in the adjoining bar where we could enjoy the rugby game and met some interesting travellers!
Highly recommend!

Our experience at Hillside Brasserie was amazing. The staff were so friendly and the service was excellent. It was a little hard to spot from the road but luckily someone else's review helped us to find the place. Once inside, the atmosphere was perfect. We opted to sit in the lobby bar next to the fire and enjoy their mulled wine which was soooo good. Our meals were cooked to absolute perfection, every component was delicious and we enjoyed every mouthful. The portions were very generous and we just saved enough space in our bellies for dessert- the baklava. It was one of the best meals I have had for a while, and I would dine there again in a heartbeat. Loved it!

7.12.'19 - Review for 'Hillside Brasserie' situated at the Scenic Suites & Heartland Hotel in Stanley St. Queenstown (nearly opposite the Presbyterian Church.) We made our booking on 'First Table for Friday 6th.Dec.'19 at 6.00p.m. My hubby, Terry, and I would be celebrating our 'Ruby Anniversary' a couple of days earlier. We had a good friend, Margaret, with us.

I am M.C.S (Multiple Chemical, Perfume, Rubber, Food & Liquid Sensitive) and have to be very careful with anything I come into contact with, and eat and drink. I contacted the Restaurant directly a few days earlier to explain my health needs. Well, they didn't say 'not to come' so that was a good sign!
The evening came and our dining experience was so enjoyable and relaxing. The Restaurant met all my needs and I didn't have any type of reactions during our time there. There is air-conditioning and under-floor heating in the Restaurant. The dining room is of a good size and airy, and there's a good space between the other tables and chairs.

Our Waiter, turned out to be the Food & Bar Manager. He was very professional and very polite. We were shown to our table & he pulled out the chairs. He gave us plenty of time to choose what we wanted. The Menu has a lot of variety and at affordable prices. Apart from the normal menu (meat, fish, chicken, vegetables, salads etc.) they cater for Vegetarian, Gluten Free and Dairy Free Diners. (They do have a Bar there for people who want to have Alcohol, etc.)

Our food was delicious and cooked to the way we liked it. I had a Porterhouse Sirloin Steak, egg & chips (and asked for no salad or sauce etc.) My hubby and our friend had Chicken Curry. For desserts my hubby had the Queen Cake Ice Cream, and our friend had Kahlua Pannacotta. I didn't have any dessert. For Drinks we had the Restaurant's Bottled Water, and later on my hubby had a Cona Coffee. We all enjoyed our food and desserts.

We spent about about 1.5 hours there. We thoroughly and highly recommend this place. We will definitely will be going back there in the future. With the background music, they had it at a level where you could talk normally. The music wasn't too loud, which was great.

Take care

Restaurant is close to town for walking convenience. The food is good with gluten free options and the staff are very pleasant. Some of the tables have a great view over the lake.

Was a lovely meal but difficult to find the restaurant as it’s not signed from the street.

Great dinner on our first night in Queenstown. We were staying at the Scenic Suites and thought it would be good to try out the restaurant at our hotel so was great to see them on first table. The staff we friendly and helpful with my dietary requirements as I am dairy free. Went back a couple of other times for breakfast and ordered dinner again too. We were the only people in the so nice and quiet for us but great music playing that created a relaxing atmosphere. My husband had the Meat lovers platter and an extra side salad but didn't need the extra side salad as there was enough salad that came with his meat lovers platter. I have the Orzo pasta salad and got the pesto swapped for a chimichurri dressing on the recommendation of the chef. Both were very tasty meals!

Despite the low rating stated from Google Reviews, the service and food was great and in line with the restaurant's image. The restaurant itself is situated inside of a hotel, where signage could have been improved, but once in staff are incredibly helpful and friendly. My meal of the night was the Meat Platter and Seasonal Vegetables, both of which were prepared almost flawlessly, with the only exception that a small portion of meat which I ordered medium, was raw (the only downside of the meal)

I Had steak and mash. The mash tasted lovely but it was cold. After returning it to the kitchen I was given a full new plate. It was a nice meal. It's not worth the full price.

Worst dining experience I've ever had in Queenstown. Four of us ordered four different meals, and none of us could eat the food. While the staff were friendly, I would not recommend eating here under any circumstances.

Georgia J Beck

It is not very often that I won't finish my meal or won't enjoy it but this was terrible. The atmosphere was dull, quiet and depressing, it was in the lobby of a hotel which we didn't realise. As for the food, I got the catch of the day which lacked in flavour and was very dry. My partner got the pulled pork which was also dry and felt hard to chew. As for the customer service, we hardly got a smile! When we got served we got approached with 'yeah?'
Would not recommend.

Main course was great although the desserts let it down. The desserts seemed like they had been sat on the shelf for a day or two.
Service was ok they presented themselves well and showed professionalism, apart from one of the waitresses struggled with the language barrier resulting in one of us getting the wrong drink.

- dined at Hillside Brasserie on

The service was very good and the food was also good. Unfortunately we had trouble finding the restaurant and we were the only people eating in the restaurant.

We were given a table right in front of the fire - great start! The prawn and salt and pepper squid entrees were nice, the Monk fish was good, although my slow cooked beef rib was a bit chewy.

Was a lovely place to have dinner, our waitress was so nice and the food was great! I had the lamb shank and it was delicious, melted in your mouth. Thank you for your great service!

- dined at Hillside Brasserie on

It wasn’t what we expected but lovely all the same. Hard to find. It’s in the heartland hotel. We sat in hotel lobby by the fire which was lovely. Kids played chess and in the little water wishing pool. Lamb shank was nice and steak and chips. We ordered fish and chips for kids which they split - batter wasn’t so nice. The girls were so lovely who served us, but service was slow. An easy meal with 2 young kids.

Loved our meal. Great spot to watch the Winter Festival fire works. Need to look at your street signage. We couldn’t find you for a while. We couldn’t see any signs on the street and it wasn’t until we walked up through the hotel complex that we saw the restaurant name on the window.

Had problems trying to find the restaurant and parking. Staff and setting wonderful but all 4 meals were only average. Pork belly needed more cooking, Wasn't much fish with the salad dish and the crumbed chicken breast had a slice of ham and cheese placed on top - looked like something a child would cook. Sorry but as this is a review to the public i feel i must be honest and say its not that good.
