Description: Searching for the perfect NZ Lamb dish? Then look no further than Roaring Megs, this unique little restaurant will not disappoint! Established in 1981, Megs has continued to lead the field by being the only restaurant in the area to receive 20 consecutive NZ Beef & Lamb Gold plates(incl. 2018) and win both the recent Central Otago Lamb Dish of the Year and NZ Beef & Lamb Peoples Choice competitions. Megs unique menu has distinct European/NZ influences and the Rack of Canterbury Lamb and Lamb Cutlets with Confit are must tries whilst in Queenstown. The atmosphere and Victorian decor is the perfect setting for a romantic, candlelit dinner or group get together. Arrive before the sun sets for a Remarkables view.

We visited here on our second night in Queenstown. While the decor is dated the service was very good. (They weren’t very busy however). We tried the house specialty lamb dish and this was very good. Would recommend this restaurant and would probably revisit when next in Queenstown.

My husband and I shared the lamb rack. It was good, but not memorable for a restaurant that specializes in lamb. We had memorable and exceptional food and wine pairings in the north, we found the south was very different

The food and service at this restaurant were both superb, we had a delightful waitress from Haiti who was both efficient and friendly. We ate the two special lamb dishes offered and both were really good. We also shared an Eton Mess dessert which was yummy. The ambience is slightly old fashioned but that didn’t detract from the enjoyment.

The food was good. We had the lamb cutlets and ravioli entrée. But there were only 2 ravioli for $16 and very small portion of vegetables and potatoes. But beautifully presented. We had to go find another place to eat afterwards as we were still hungry. And we are not big eaters!

We ate dinner here. The entree, pumpkin soup was very bland. For main I had the lamb rack, which for the price considered of 3 lamb cutlets, a small serve of veggies and a tiny square of potato bake for $50. Chocolate mousse for dessert was very dense and not all that good. Overall the food was only average, I can cook all 3 dishes way better myself and I’m definitely not a chef by trade. On the up side, service was good and staff were friendly. Had far meals in Queenstown!
