Ranked: #18 of 71 restaurants in Queenstown

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.

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.

Definitely worth not eating the whole day so you can order the degustation menu. 7 sensational courses of deliciousness- a 5 Star feast in front of the crackling fire. Loved it ❤️

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.

Wonderful dining experience with wonderful food - we had the degustation menu. Staff were exceptional creating a fine dining experience. The Bunker is an intimate special place to dine. We had an amazing evening finishing with a cocktail upstairs in front of the fire.

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!

As soon as you walk in, you get the feeling you're going to be in for a good night. Nice, cosy atmosphere without being crowded. Excellent, friendly service and the degustation menu was the best food we've eaten in a very long time! We'll be coming back.

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!

The food was amazing, every portion on the degustation menu had a perfectly balanced mixture of flavours. Every sauce, meat and vegetable complimenting each other with an overwhelming finesse. The layout of each dish is just as good as it taste. The meticulous detail put into the placement of everything on the plate shows the pride the chefs have in there creation. This is one of the only restaurants i have been to where i cant critique anything everything was cooked to perfection.

I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone and everyone

We got totally amused by the excellent cuisine . We all had the 7 course meal, and I just got triple surprised by the tastes, the originality and evident dedication from the chef to his art work.
It was a night to go out with friends, it ended like a big celebration.
Many thanks.

We chose this iconic restaurant for our wedding anniversary. Great selection on the menu to choose from. Food was well presented and very tasty. Only negative was that nothing was hot. By the time I was half way through my meal, everything was stone cold.

This is a very special dining experience. You are completely taken care of, the food is so flavourful and delicious. I like how they tell you everything on your plate as you serve it so you can be reminded of the flavours. Perfect!! 11/10.

We came to The Bunker with very high expectations - its reputation proceeds itself. And that reputation is very much accurate - it was perfect in every way for date night. The degustation just seemed to keep on going - we really loved the venison tartare, the hare, the salmon, and of course the dessert! Highly recommend the wine pairing to go with each dish, then going upstairs for cocktails afterwards. We have already told several friends how great this experience was - highly recommended.

The bunker is a comfy little restaurant with a fire place and hidden away from the world.
Great for a romantic dinner. Food and service was great. We had some drinks in the upstairs bar which has the same comfy rustic feel as the restaurant. My partner had the ostrich and venison and I had the hare and duck with sharing the churros and a bottle of wine! Perfect evening.

Simply SENSATIONAL...from the moment you walk in until the moment you leave. We had the most fantastic dining experience and a very memorable evening. Shane, in the restaurant and his team are wine connoisseurs and explain the menu in explicit detail and can recommend which wine will complement your food. Everything was superb and we are looking forward to going back soon, even if it is just for a drink in the cocktail bar upstairs. We give it a 12 out of 10!
