Celebrating Global Cuisine in Queenstown New Zealand

Spice up your dining when eating out (or in) in Queenstown New Zealand this winter

Queenstown's International Cuisine & Restaurants

Covid has left us grounded for a few years, but now that restaurants are open full time, there’s no reason not to reconnect yourself to the wider world through the amazing cuisine on offer in the heart of Queenstown. As they say, ‘If the mountain will not come to Muhammad, then Muhammad must go to the mountain'

From local lamb, roasted to perfection with fresh local green beans and crispy Kumera to Latin, European, Caribbean or Asian, there is a world of wonderful eateries that can bring variety and spice to your dining experience this winter. Queenstown has a relatively small city centre and it’s full of some of the best restaurants in New Zealand.

So, when it’s time for your adventure with us at Spinnaker Bay Apartments, down here in the South Island of New Zealand, allow yourself both the time and the budget to dine out at one or more of these fabulous international eateries which are bringing a touch of the world to Spinnaker Bay’s doorstep.

From the four corners of the globe, we bring you the following international cuisine
