Painted and decorated in the colour of love and decked out in plush fabrics and prints, Le Salon Rouge is the restaurant equivalent of an all-out romantic gesture.

Love is all around at this very unique eatery. Designed like a lounge with formal seating included for dinner, La Salon Rouge is small and intimate with all the glitz and glam of the prohibition era. And, located within the Sofitel Hotel, it's within easy reach in central Queenstown. Date night just got a whole lot more exciting!

As the name suggests, La Salon Rouge heralds the exact art of French cooking. With Executive Chef Lindsay Bennett at the helm, you're in for an absolute treat from starters to dessert. The menu centres on sharing with grazing plates primed for intimate chats over some incredible gastronomy. So, fill the table with delicacies like NZ mussels, char grilled beef sirloin, lamb short rib and duck liver parfait for a supper full of flavour and texture.

And, seeing as we're in the French provinces, experience the magic of fromage with a Kiwi twist. These sharing boards are perfect if you want to try cheese from everywhere, be that Gibbston Valley, Glenorchy or Wakatipu. But if that's just too predictable for you and you fancy a gastronomic surprise, their 'trust the chef' option is bound to surprise and delight.

Bon appetit, Queenstown!
