Public Kitchen & Bar is a casual dining option right on the waterfront in Queenstown Bay, making it the perfect spot to drop in for a drink, grab a bite and catch up with friends and family.

Chef Owner Martin James and talented Chef Stephen Clayton have taken a step back from fine dining and returned to ‘grass roots’ cooking. Their honest, no fuss style of cooking utilising the best local produce caught on the doorstep, hunted in the hills or foraged from the farms is perfect to pass around and share with friends.

The bar offerings include Central Otago wine, Queenstown’s own craft beer on tap and a hearty selection of both local and international wines to keep you happy as you drink in the views.

Sample the daily changing flavours and while away an hour or two with friends and family.
