Fun gondola trip - so high! Go early for your booking so that you can be given a window seat in the restaurant. Smorgasbord spread was extensive and very tasty.
Was really worth going on this cable car tour and experience the amazing lunch with great views.
excellent buffet ,views and staff
The gondola trip itself was great. The photographer missed our photo opportunity as the flash did not function or something, so have no mementonof our trip which is disappointing. Now for the food review...... Not so good. The system that they have whereby you register on arrival and then you are called individually when your buzzer goes off which is a great idea and saves queuing and you can stay seated in the bar until your time to be seated. We had a great view of the skyline at our table which was lovely. The food unfortunately was poor. The menu sounded great but the quality of it was not. The prawns were overcooked and hard. The fish was tasteless. The pasta was soggy and overall everything was disappointing. The desserts were almost non existent by the time we got to have ours (being in a later sitting) they were not replenished. Overall a disappointing meal. The only reason I have given thia tour a 4 is simply for the beautiful views and photos we got.
Definitely a must do experience in Queenstown,even just going up in the gondola for the views alone.
The operation of the restaurant is very slick as they must process a lot of diners over an evening.The food was plentiful and fresh with a wide choice.The only minor gripe is that there were not that many waiters and I had to go searching to ask for a wine order
We went for a late booking so it was getting dusk while we ate--a really lovely evening with amazing views.It doesn,t really matter where you sit you can still see the view
Great food, friendly staff and wow, what views of the surrounding countryside !
good view and good food
good view and good food

Doing what: Remarkables Mountain Range Helicopter Flight from Queenstown
Absolutely the best but the only bad is that it was too short, but I could have flown for hours. Views to die for,
This is certainly a must for all the tourists to Queenstown. You see why the remarkables are called " The Remarkables" Food was excellent.
Beautiful mountain top scenery. We enjoyed watching all the kite gliders cascading down the mountain from overtop the restaurant. The restaurant's buffet was very nice. I was expecting a more formal dining experience but it was very casual and tourist like. I would highly recommend it for the views alone.
The gondola ride was a wonderful experience. The buffet lunch was truly delicious, we tried everything and savoured every moment. The staff were friendly and helpful. The views are superb and I didn't want to leave.Thankyou Viator for making that part of my trip memourable as you have done in the past.
