This has to be the best seafood meal I've had in a long time. The crayfish though expensive was amazing. So tender and juicy. The Queensland prawn taco were also a hit. Even though there are thousands of kilometers between Queenstown and Queensland they still...More

Fishbone was recommended as an outstanding fish restaurant. First, in a city with multiple waterfront restaurants, this one has no view and no atmosphere. lacks decor and has no music. The food is incredibly expensive, and you need to pay 9.90 dollars if you want...More

Pay absolutely no attention to any negative review posted here. This seafood is fresh, tasty, imaginatively prepared and very reasonably priced. We recently had our wedding reception here and not one of our 24 guests left remotely unsatisfied. The staff were friendly, patient and funny,...More

Small place away from the water with an interesting menu and open kitchen. We weren't overly hungry that night but what we had was well prepared. We were by the kitchen so a tad noisy but otherwise a nice evening.
