Amisfield Bistro and Winery

Why Amisfield is a First-Choice Dining Destination

Located 15 minutes from central Queenstown, overlooking Lake Hayes, is the iconic stone building of Amisfield.  Considered one of the most idyllic locations in Queenstown, this iconic restaurant has one of the most beautiful indoor-outdoor flows which means it's an absolute delight in all seasons.


In winter, the roaring fire and ceiling-to-floor windows lend a comfortable and cosy ambience with tons of natural light and stunning vistas back across Lake Hayes and up towards Coronet Peak, while in summer the outdoor dining next to the water feature is the perfect way to while away an afternoon with arguably, the regions best rosè!  

The Bistro opened in 2005 and offers a full menu. The food is an expression of local seasonal ingredients that are simply prepared and designed to complement their wines.  The 'trust the chef' menu is always one of the favourites and can cover 5-7 dishes with paired wines.  Sitting in the lunchtime sun, umbraller above to protect you from the direct sun rays, and enjoying the best local cuisine and wine is a perfect way to enjoy your trip to Queenstown.

Weather permitting, guests can also sit outside on their cobblestone patio, ask to picnic on the lawn, or play a game in the yard. Amisfield has had, and continues to have, global recognition and among many other distinctions won the Cuisine Magazine’s Top 50 New Zealand Restaurants in 2011 and 2012.  

So, if you have one day to enjoy dining and local wines, then choose Amisfield Bistro on Lake Hayes.  It's a real treat!
