Have been several times, service has always been fantastic, cocktails are expertly made, and the seasonal menu really showcases the quality of food available in these parts.

Food and drinks are delish! Visited multiple times during my last trip to Queenstown for Breakfast, lunch and evening drinks & tapas. This is our go to bar in Queenstown, love it! I really recommend the Clam Chowder.

This little Tapas Bar is truly a delight - with a fabulous by-the-glass wine list. We were also extremely impressed by the service. The attention to detail was surprisingly good. And to cap it all off, the food was both imaginative and delicious. What more can you ask for?

My family lunched at Eichardt's. We couldn't believe our luck when we able to sit at the front table overlooking the lake. The place was empty and we soon found out why. Yes, the food prices are pretty cheap. In this case cheap equals tiny. Then, after waiting for about 45 mins we were told it shouldn't be too much... More

Hi Jenny, Thanks for your review. Clearly this is not the type of feedback we are used to receiving and this is concerning for me. Eichardt's prides itself on our standard of service and for us to fall that short is extremely disappointing. Do you by chance remember the staff members name as they all wear name badges. Feel free... More

Birthday dinner for my 16 year old daughter, and she loved it! She's big on style, design, decor, atmosphere, quality and new experiences, and the Eichardt tapas bar was perfect. Everything was impeccable, as expected, even our two wait staff were immaculately attired and the best waiters I've seen in ages. There's about a dozen dishes, so with the five... More

Loved the ambience of the bar with its comfy chairs, sofa's and fire place. The staff were amazing and knew every detail of each tapas plate. Their suggestion for our cocktails was perfect after we discussed what we like and don't like. A very relaxing environment - highly recommend.

Eichardt's Bar offers great tapas. Meaning to share, but of course you do not have to split every well cooked delicious little meal! The menu is not large, but there is more to choose from then you can eat. Around 5 tapas is enough for a two person evening tea. Enjoy the kitchen with a nice glass of wine or... More
