A fine dining experience celebrating all things Kiwi, Rātā is bringing style and finesse to the Queenstown dining scene.

With some of Queenstown's most impressive historic buildings in your eyeline, this is the real Kiwi experience... and then some! Culinary expertise, natural beauty and Kiwi hospitality all combine to make this an unforgettable dining experience.

In Rātā's neck of the woods, dinner is meant to be savoured with no mouthful rushed or course cleared too quickly. If you don't believe us, they even have delicious small plates to be enjoyed before starters! Their menu changes daily, but to give you a flavour of what's to come, you can expect anything from oozing goats cheese profiteroles, pork terrine and storm clams from Cloudy Bay.

Their starters lead the way in contemporary Kiwi cuisine and can include delectable veal sweetbreads as well as the most delicate kingfish Crudo with fiery confit ginger. Finally, we get to mains where the party well and truly begins! Their exclusive cuts of meat always come with innovative and contemporary components whilst only the freshest seafood makes it to your plate. In a world where nothing falls short of perfection, this restaurant reigns supreme.
