I went with a friend, first time, I ordered a Char grilled Wakanui aged grain fed Sirloin Steak, and my friend a Hot Smoked Akaroa Salmon. Excellent choices, we both shared the food, and it was really delicious. Also deserves a special mention our waitress Marie, who gave us a 5 stars service! A place to go back anytime. Thanks!

The herb crusted and confit lamb was dish of my year too! Julia from Germany was an excellent help in making the final selection and it didn't disappoint. I paired with a Mt Difficulty pinot noir and a side of mashed potato with a bit of additional gravy. P.S. Bonus points: I brought my 1 year old along and the staff were so great with him!

My husband had the venison which he enjoyed. I had the Apple crumble to follow and he had the vanilla sponge both were fantastic. Would recommend the place to anyone

Me and my Farther hand a excellence meal, We had the cheese platter for starters. And the blue cheese was perfect. The steak and lamb rack were faultless. To put the icing on the cake, the apple and blueberry crumble was superb. Thanks to the waitress at Roaring Megs for the service and meal. Anyone and everyone should try this restaurant as it will exceed peoples expectations.

A truly pleasant experience. I have always been aware of this restaurant, but thanks to first table, I finally got around to try it. Everything was top notch. Food was gorgeous and you could really taste that all ingredients was freshly made and the flavour combinations worked well. Its a shame this restaurant dont have more diners, but with a bit of a hidden location of the streets, I can only hope more people try this through first table. 100 % will be back.

We had 2 dishes lamb rack and lamb shoulders.
They were the best we had in Queenstown. No wonder the Roaring Meg won the gold plate award. The fruit crumble and cream brûlée were also exquisitely good.
The wine list is price reasonably.
The service was superb, we asked for extra mint sauce less this and that. Everything was done to perfection with a big smile.
We have tried many restaurant in Queenstown. This is a hidden gem because it doesn’t have a big loud side. Everything was done tastefully!
We’ll be back again soon ... very soon.

Despite it being a quiet night the restaurant still had a nice atmosphere and our waiter got the perfect balance between providing good and service and knowing when to leave us alone! Food was fabulous, cooked to perfection and most importantly delicious. Thanks Roaring Megs for a lovely dinner, we'll be back!

I am a local tour guide.
I always recommend this restaurant confidently to customers with the best lamb in Queenstown. There is a wonderful Japanese menu, too.
All customers are satisfied and very happy.
I have not tried this season yet, soso I chose to celebrate my friend's birthday.(4 of us are work colleagues)
We ordered Garlic Bread, Herb Crusted Rack of Canterbury Lamb, Confit of Lamb Shoulder, Creme Brulee, Megs Rich Dark Chocolate Mousse, etc... As we expected, it was definitely delicious.
We enjoyed very much. We will continue to highly recommend this restaurant to our customers.

The service was fantastic and so was the food. We shared the platter to start with which was nice but just a standard platter. They did swap out one of the ingredients that we weren't keen on and gave us extra of something else. We had a lamb dish and the venison for the mains. Both were cooked beautifully and the sides were scrummy as well. The puddings were yummy especially my creme brulee.

Great service, a polite and friendly French girl served us. Not sure why it’s so quiet as the food is outstanding.The lamb (both dishes) is amazing! Wine is a little bit pricey compared to other places in Queenstown but it is top brand so to be expected. Will be back.

Great wee place with lovely waitresses.
The entree of pork belly was delicious, as were the lamb mains! The ravioli entree was a bit uninspired.
Nice relaxed atmosphere; it was amusing to look out to fear factory across the road as a contrast.

My boyfriend and I had a wonderful dinner. My friend asked for a detailed review to be sent to her. This is how the conversation went:
*insert photo of beautifully arranged lamb confit, racks and seasonal vegetables*
Friend: oh my god. Money shot, right there.
Me: It was divine. My knife glided through the lamb like butter.
Friend: Ah stahp. It's too much, too soon.
Me: The seasonal vegetables were so hearty and wholesome. It was like summer in my tummy.
Friend: And the sauce?
Me: Like birdsong. Music I could taste.

The above is an accurate review of our evening at Roaring Meg's, and I haven't even got started on the desserts. 10/10 would go again.
