Reviews

A few drinks at the bar got us off to a great start. A lovely warm ambience, knowledgeable and friendly bar staff. Ross in particular deserves special mention - managing to juggle bar and table service. His wine matching with our meal was spot on. However the star of the show is Trent and his food. His knowledge and passion shine through. Dish after beautifully presented dish came out. I think we had 8 courses all up. All were tasty, with innovative twists. The stand outs were the salmon, beetroot felafel, banana flower, fish (wow!) and the rice creme caramel. One of the biggest highlights was having the chef deliver each dish and talk us through it. An incredibly generous thing to do. Can’t wait to return. Thank you to the whole team for making it such a special night...and to Brendan for making us laugh so much!

We spend an amazing time at N 5 Church Lane. The new menu offers beautiful and flavoursome dishes. Tapas which can be shared between the table. We have enjoy the opportunity to taste 3 New Zealand wine for 30$. I would recommend the experience between friends without a doubt. Great service!

Absolutely 5 stars! Such a fantastic experience. The food was amazing and the service impeccable. We opted for the sharing menu plus dessert which we couldn't fault. The Chef came out to serve us our main courses and explained a bit about the produce and cooking methods which was a really nice touch. We will be back!

The service was excellent, with very well considered recommendations made with wine and food. We went for the Sharing Menu plus dessert. This was a fantastic option and we would recommend it to anyone- delicious and creative food by the chef and more than we had anticipated. Recommend this restaurant highly to all future diners

The ambiance, the service, the food, the drinks worked very well. We couldn’t have asked for more. Our French waiter was attentive and efficient. We enjoyed the evening in this classy restaurant. Two of us had the chef’s preference and were very happy with our selection. Other two had the fish as main course and the other had pork. Everyone was really happy. Totally recommend the restaurant.

We ordered the sharing menu and put a special request for salmon. The meal was decided by the chief, including a soup, an entree and more than three courses, which were all as fresh and tasty as we expected. In particular, the salmon was so delicious that I would like to try it again next time. And the service has been fantastic, I have to say. Thanks for your detailed explanation and suggestions

Definitely one of the better restaurants Ive dined at in Queenstown. We got the Mezze No 5 and the Rigotini and the Risotto. All of it was delicious and the Mezze was well worth the price you paid, we got a very refreshing appetiser, a delicious entree and a very filling main as well as a salad. Its also exciting because it's kind of Chef's choice so you get a real culinary experience.

The staff were really friendly and the atmosphere was so relaxing, I would definitely dine again even without First Table if it was for a special occasion. :)

No 5 has a beautiful ambience and great service. The staff go out of their way to ensure that your dining experience is enjoyable. There are plenty of vegetarian options, and some can be made vegan if required. A great space, great place and awesome tastes. Highly recommend.

This was the first time we had dined at No5 Church Lane and what an experience this was.

The venue itself is located down a small alleyway in the centre of the hustle and bustle of downtown Queenstown. Once inside the venue however, you are greeted with a calming, inviting and relaxing atmosphere, perfect to enjoy a Sunday lunch with friends and family.

The menu serves as a Mediterranean tapas experience and we were advised by our waiter that for a group of three, we would be looking at around 5-7 small dishes depending on our appetites. The option for larger courses was also available, which was a great touch. In the end we opted for 5 dishes, 1 of which was the large Char-grilled Cardrona Lamb Ribs. I cannot recommend these enough, the portion size was fantastic value for money and were cooked to perfection. In terms of taste the Lamb Ribs were closely followed by the Wild Hare & Caramelised Onion Croquettes. The small serving included three large croquettes, each containing a surprising amount of meat, which was to the delight of my partner.

Overall, we had a great experience dining at No5 Church Lane. The staff were knowledgeable, attentive and friendly and I can certainly vouch that they make a great coffee on site.

Thank you for a lovely afternoon, we are already excited for our next visit.

Mediterranean flavours in a funky setting with great cocktails: everything was amazing. My husband and I shared 4 small plates and had dessert. We loved the array of smokey, spicy, meaty and fresh flavours, and can't fault either the food or the service. Just smashing.

We tried the mezze set menu. It was fantastic! The waiter was right - we would try things we would probably not choose but we would enjoy them. From the opening soup to the triumphant closing dessert, everything was great. The reputation of No.5 as part of the prestigious Spire hotel precedes it but absolutely did not disappoint. A top First Table choice!

It was amazing!! Beautiful food, perfect for sharing around, we ordered main size dish each and a polenta side dish and shared everything which was perfect. Wine list and the cocktail was very good too, we were in a bit early and had some cocktail before food which was really good.

What a great night!
Food was fabulous.
We had the Mezze platter which is a great way to sample the menu as there are 7 dishes served.
Oustanding flavours and textures.
The service was equally tremendous.
Will definitely return First Table or not.

This was such a great time! The vibe in here was just fab! Our server was such a great guy - the kind of staff member you can tell is exactly the right fit for the hospitality industry because you could tell he loved his job, wanted to be there and was actually having a good time at work.

The restaurant was really accommodating of our 6 month old and 3 year old - they both were made to feel really welcome.

To top it all off and our main reason for going was that the food is AMAZING! we felt really pampered. You could tell great care was taken in creating each dish and the flavors were incredible!

We will definitely be back.

Great job guys!

Amazing dining experience!
We chose the Mezze ( 7 little dishes of the chefs choice ) which was lovely! Was fun to not know what dish was coming next, but all of the dishes were very tasteful and we didn’t leave anything on our plates!
Thought it was really good we were still able to access this special on the first table offer, but this meant we were able to get dessert too which was so yummy!
Would recommend to anyone as a place to have a cocktail or to enjoy an evening meal, and would definitely recommend people to have the Mezze as most of the dishes I liked the look of in the menu were actually in the Mezze too! Best of both worlds!
Thanks No 5 Church Lane for your friendly service and great grub :)

My husband and I had a great experience there. The food was great and the waiter was chirpy and friendly (thanks for the little rescue mission if you remember it). The best thing about it is the atmosphere; I love that they don't have the music up too loud, making it quiet and classy - a perfect place to have a conversation over dinner without having to semi-shout over the music/crowd.

Srum-diddly-umptious!

We went for the sharing mezze 'trust the chef' and you would be right to trust them! They were great and accommodated for one of us being a meat-dodger, we still left feeling full to the brim and you get to taste a bit of everything!

Takes pressure off the decision maker - and I highly recommend going for the dessert add-on because it was next level!

No5 are very good at what they do, which is particularly true of the Mezze where you let the chef choose which dishes you would like for $50 per person.
We started with an excellent Gazpacho each and then shared the best Bruschetta I’ve had in years, tasty Cardrona lamb ribs, outstanding hand-cut chips and manuka smoked Taramasalata AND Broccolini AND Bocconcini - The food was gorgeous and copious - we were stuffed! In addition the service given by the very smooth Luke and his colleagues was faultless. We booked on FirstTable.nz so it was also wonderful value. Amazing!

Food was delicious as always. Much smaller portions than we have had in the past.
Beef cheek was lovely but extremely small for what should have been a main course for 2 people. Got a mouthful each which was disappointing.
Would have been very unhappy if we had paid full price, but was fair at 50% off.
Crumbled lamb was also yum!

Have dined at No5 a few times before and wanted to try the updated (2019) menu. It really was an amazing collection of dishes. Our group of four opted to dine à la carte as we wanted to try most things on the menu. We orders small sized dishes of everything and there was enough for everyone to try some and with 10 small dishes (excluding dessert) we were very full and content. I recommend the small dishes or the trust the chef menu as most of the dishes were very rich and packed with flavour and I'm not sure how they would scale out if you only had a large size of one (they are tapas style dishes really). Food has quite a lot of options for vegetarians and others with dietary requirements. Deserts were also excellent, hence less sharing. All in all highly recommend and good value even not on first table.

If you want good, interesting food, N°5 Church Lane is a great location to get just that. A personal favourite had to be the seared salmon with pineapple jus. The menu was very inclusive with a fair variety of gluten-free and vegan options available. Staff were attentive, however, we felt there was a lot of pressure to opt for the three-course tasting menu despite the fact that we had already decided on the dishes that appealed to us.
