This is the best deal with first table which included buffet meal + gondola . Absolutely breathtaking views and experience . The buffet offered a wide selection of food especially the Pudding section (Yummy!!). The staff was friendly and showed us around the restaurant .

Unbelievable experience! Even though the weather couldn’t have been much worse, it still was amazing. It’s like walking into a 5* restaurant with very friendly and professional service. There is so much to choose from and literally all of it was delicious! The desserts are to die for. Will defo be going back.

Absolutely wonderful experience at Stratosfare. The food was excellent and all of the staff seemed to go out of their way to ensure our evening was amazing. There was a great variety of food that could tailor to all dietary requirements which was awesome...And then there was the view!! - Superb. Thanks!

I had the most amazing lunch with my partner with a million dollar view!
The food was amazing and we got a tour before we received the great lunch experience.
The price are very affordable because it includes the gondola.

What can you say, the view from your table is breathtaking, the best in Queenstown, especially with the sun setting over the mountains and lake.
Now then you get to the buffet, wowsers, so much quality and choices from meats, seafood, salads and desserts. This buffet is the best I have ever experienced and definitely created a food baby for myself and my wife

The view is amazing. We were seated very promptly by the waiter by a window. Looking out lake Wakatipu and the snow mountains, this is an amazing experience.

The buffet food is generally enjoyable. we tasted sushi, pulled lamb, some good selection of cold meat and cheese. We also enjoyed the vegetarian curry and laksa. As for dessert, the creme brûlée is great.

Overall a very enjoyable experience. If I have to put any downside, it will be the if the selection of food can be more international variety such as asian cuisine, it will be even better.

The most worthy thing to do in Queenstown if you want to have good food and good views. The waiter who served us was incredibly nice, I'd like to remember his name (I think it's Guilherm, from Italy maybe?) Sorry, I can't remember, but you'll be lucky if he's the one designated to your table :)

Incredible atmosphere is to be had with a window side table of the panoramic views of Queenstown.
The food covered a wide variety of earring options including vegan, vegetarian and gluten free. The sirloin steak matched with the mushroom pepper sauce was the standout for me.

We coupled this experience with the luge and would recommend doing this beforehand so you wont bring up you lunch.

The view was lovely, the staff unfortunately not very good. No one asked us if we wanted drinks the first order I called someone over the second time I had to walk to the station after trying unsuccessfully for five minutes to get someone’s attention. It took a good 15 mins of waiting in a queue to get in so we weren’t seated until 445 yet someone came around before 6 reminding us we would have to be out in a few mins.

Good food and beautiful views, but presumably because we paid less they put us at a table out of the way where the gondola cables blocked the view. Also be aware that you need to start making your way up 30-40 mins prior to the booking time - it took us 30 mins to get through the ticket and gondola queues.

We had an awesome and very filling experience at Stratosfare! Food was great, the ambience and view were spectacular, and the service was commendable. Maybe just a suggestion to light up a bit the buffet area. I felt like it was too dark. Thank you!

Very efficient service and the chef and wait staff went over and above when I mentioned I had a severe allergy. The chef walked me through the buffet letting me know the ingredients and then made me my own meal on top of that. Very much appreciated - thanks. Such an awesome choice of desserts - it's worth a visit just for that!

Staff were fantastic - we ended up arriving an hour and a half early and they let us into our table early so we didn’t have to sit at the bar for too long. Food was fine, typical dinner buffet food - nothing terrible but nothing amazing.

We were taken to the wonderful view seat.
There were many kinds of dishes and we enjoyed various national foods. The salmon sashimi was delicious!
I recommend going to the early evening and watching to the citysape will be changing to dark.

The view is outstanding, literally jaw dropping. Service was also amazing, with staff helping clear plates constantly and always with a smile. Was pleasantly surprised at the food too- delicious and plenty of variety. The mussels, lamb and ice-cream were highlights! Only the Singapore laksa was a huge let down.

Another thing was that the restaurant was rather noisy and full of people from tours... so it wasn’t the most relaxing peaceful meal. But overall, was really enjoyable.
