The staff were extremely attentive and friendly, they are a credit to the business.
The vegan curry was brilliant and it is very refreshing to have a vegan main that is interesting and tasty, many restaurants offer a token vegan dish that is bland and usually along the lines of a plain salad so I would certainly be back for this dish.

10/10 would go again! Amazing food, service and experience. Ribeye was cooked to perfection by a very talented chef and the dessert deserved a round of applause. Not only was the food out of this world but the waitresses and other staff were just awesome! 100% will be visiting again soon!

Amazing, cosy spot for a delicious breakfast in Queenstown. My wife and I opted for a table right in front of the fireplace that made our time there that much more comfortable as we both admired the beautiful decor interior. My wife had the big breakfast and I got the breakfast special of the day. Both plates were extremely generous and made with quality ingredients. We left with with satisfied belly’s and hope to return before we leave Queenstown. The service was attentive and very friendly: kudos to the waitress who had to deal with the difficult table next to us but remained professional and friendly. Couldn’t fault anything with Ivy and Lola’s Kitchen.

Great spot right by the waterfront. The breakfast was impeccable and the Big Breakfast was tasty and on the point. Friendly service. It was busy whenever we passed it through various points of the day, which speaks for itself.

Why haven't I been here for dinner before! The menu is exciting and the food amazing. The staff and service are super 5 out of 5! For seafood lovers i highly recommend the scallops entree and for the main sole and fennel. Definitely be coming back to try more.

Awesome meal with a very inviting atmosphere, friendly staff and attention to detail. We had to go back yesterday. All meals were exceptional especially the pancakes . The chef is keeping the recipe a secret. Compliments to chef and staff.

Was great to sit outside on a beautiful sunny evening at the waterfront. The service, food, wine, ambience and atmosphere was second to none. We enjoyed the squid and seafood chowder for starters and sole for mains. All was cooked to perfection. We certainly be back :)

OMG! The food was incredible specially the entree, which was the Scallops! Then I had the rib-eye steak which was also delicious! I highly recommend this restaurant!

Ivy and Lola's was outstanding. Loved the quirky decor, the big fire and our cosy nook in the corner. Also, for someone with a hearing disability, this one one of very, very few places whose acoustics were not bad and whose music didn't dominate to the extent that conversation was a struggle.
And, the food-yummy!! The shared duck entree was moist, tender and delicious. My wife loved her 3 hour cooked steak and the variety and flavours in the middle eastern lamb dish were beautiful.
Service was perfect-friendly, attentive but not overwhelming.
Highly recommended.

What an epic birthday breakfast!! Ivy and Lola's is always fabulous - hence making it my choice for starting my birthday in style :) I LOVE the roasted cauliflower with poached eggs and all the goodies, my man can't go past the smoked hoki and our friend went with the smoked croquettes which is also another of our favourites. With great coffee, excellent service and delish food you will never be disappointed with your choice to dine here, breakfast, lunch or dinner!

Good service although the new boy was a bit unsure of himself (understandable as it was his first day). However, we were a bit taken aback when he asked if we would like the steak 'raw' - we figured he meant rare! Calamari was delicious and the food was plentiful. Nice busy setting with lots to looks at as the world walked by.
