Eat & Drink Queenstown

Queenstown Fergburger

There are so many excellent places to eat and drink in Queenstown and nearby that you could stay for weeks without eating at the same place twice. Besides the Downtown area, there are lots of good eateries scattered around the Wakatipu Basin.

Arrowtown is only 20 minutes away by car and there are plenty of wineries a similar distance away.

We’ve listed some top spots that are popular with locals. If you’re after an exhaustive list, check out Destination Queenstown.
