Undeniably this restaurant offers the most spectacular, panoramic views in NZ. It serves three sittings per evening and each sitting caters for at least 150 people. No wonder you have to make a booking. With such a turnover of numbers expect queues for your food....More

We took the Skyline to the Restaurant for dinner, the view was amazing and it was good to see it a night. The restaurant was delicious and a huge range to choose from the desserts were amazing. Well worth the money.

Hi Julie Yes, this review is for Stratosphere Queenstown, New Zealand. There are a number of other venues around the world using the name Stratosphere but this one is definitely Queenstown 👍

Hi, Booking is highly recommended, especially if you would like window seats with bird's eye views of the city. It's a popular place with tourists. You only pay on arrival, so there's no financial penalty if you fail to... More

Located high above Queenstown with panoramic views of Lake Wakatipu and the Remarkables mountain range, Skyline Queenstown's restaurant is one of the most popular dining experiences in New Zealand - catering for up to 620 guests each night. Chef and guest interaction is one of the highlights of the Stratosfare redevelopment. Guests are able to watch as Stratosfare's expert chefs prepare dishes using some of New Zealand's finest produce at interactive cooking stations. Further enhancing the overall guest experience is the inclusion of a mussel bar, where New Zealand green-lipped mussels are served hot to diners. A central feature of Stratosfare is a purpose-built rotisserie oven where guests can see locally-sourced chicken, beef and lamb cooked before their eyes. A tempting dessert display featuring a vast array of decadent sweet treats is the perfect end to a dining experience. Lunch open from 12.00Pm until 2.00Pm. Dinner reservations available: Early sitting from 5.45Pm till 6.30Pm (tables must be vacated by 7.45Pm) Late sitting from 8.15Pm to 8.45Pm (no time limit) Contact
