Cuisine: Fine Dining, New Zealand
Price Point: Mains from Above $35

Hidden away down a back alley in the centre of Queenstown behind a rustic old wooden door, The Bunker is your complete nightlife venue offering a restaurant, cocktail/late-night-bar and private group dining room.

The restaurant is small and intimate, ensuring a high level of quality and service; dim lighting and old school music create an almost private club atmosphere.

The menu focuses on locally sourced produce with European and Kiwi flavours, expertly crafted by Head Chef - Vincent Good. The term 'rustic fine dining' describes The Bunker's cuisine and the overall experience, and can be described as uncomplicated, but perfectly matched flavours, passionately prepared using the best of local and domestic produce.

The Bunker offer an à la carte menu and a 'Taste of the South' degustation menu, both of which are available with First Table.

After booking with First Table please call the restaurant to confirm your choice of menu.

Small and intimate with roaring fire and great service. Unfortunately my partner was unwell before dinner so it was cut short but the small amount of food we had was top class.

What an amazing experience! The food was stunning in both presentation and taste. We have not experienced much 'fine dining' before this, but they set the bar extremely high and offered the utmost service. The staff were so pleasant and answered all of our questions about the courses. As we said numerous times throughout the evening, "We wish we could eat here every night!"

Dined at bunker for my partners birthday last week. The food and service was faultless! We went for the taste of the south menu, highly recommend. Each course was a good size and meant we got to try a variety of food. The service was great and the waiters were very knowledgeable. Would highly recommend

Bunker was brilliant! The waiters and waitresses were relaxed and friendly whilst also knowing the menu inside out. They made every effort to make our visit comfortable, and to ensure we had a great night. The food was incredible with lots of flavours complimenting each other perfectly, and the portion sizes were spot on. Can’t recommend Bunker enough!

Third time dining at Bunker, third time ordering the 7 course menu. The highlight was definitely the venison - so tender and tasty! And the deconstructed pavlova dessert was very fun to eat. Thanks for a consistently delicious meal.

Had an incredible experience at Bunker, the service could not have been more attentive or knowledgeable. The food was amazing, trying the 7 course menu enabled us to try multiple dishes we may not have chosen for ourselves and every course was delicious. Would have no doubts in recommending to anyone.

A small but very cosy restaurant. The fire added to the general ambience. Food was excellent although crayfish parcels were very small. Snapper and lamb was lovely but wine list was up there. Great night though

Always absolutely amazing, Queenstown's premier restaurant. We regularly dine at The Bunker with a fantastic bar upstairs, and the delicious flavours throughout all the food, plus the added bonus of the best manager in Queenstown, always makes you feel welcome. I highly recommend The Bunker.

I booked The Bunker for my boyfriends birthday and we were not disappointed. The atmosphere is warm and cosy, the staff are very attentive and professional. The scallop and whitebait starters were incredible and the beef steak one of the best steaks we've ever eaten. If we were being very critical we thought at some points there was too much going on on some of the plates - very intense and rich. In the UK for this standard of food and service you would expect to pay much more!

Everything about The Bunker was exceptional.
The service was amazing with descriptions and help with the menu, humour and speed.
The food is something else, we had to order four starters between two of us because we just couldn't decide, and I'm glad we did as they were all perfect.
Great wine, great atmosphere, cosy and definitely worth a visit.

Thank you!
