The views from the top were beautiful. Good to go early and watch the luge. Looked like fun so wishing that I had booked that as well. Really good selection of hot and cold food with lots of different cuisines. All very freshly prepared. Tried to have a taste of lots of different things. Too full up for puds! It is incredibly busy so not a quiet romantic evening but you don't have to queue for food. Staff all have a little flag badge of their country so easy to find someone who can speak your language if you have any queries.Yes, I would do it again and will recommend to friends.

For the price this was well worth doing. The gondola ride alone costs 33NZ. The food was good. They did get us in early. We were able to take the gondola up early and enjoy the view. The area is lovely from above. I highly recommend, especially if you are short on time. A great view of Queenstown.

Beautiful vistas from the mountain top of Lake Wakatipu and sounding mountains, including The Magnificents! Restaurant was well worth it food was excellent, lots of choices, and the desserts were to die for. Great way to spend our first day in Queensland!

We had the trip up the Skyline Gondola and the eat as much as you want buffet. First we walked around the top so much to see, bungee jumping, luge and the Sky divers. Then the buffet amazing food and the table with the whole view of Queenstown and mountains. The buffet itself could not be beaten. An excellent trip.

Terrific view on Queenstown watching the sunset eating delicious food and served by amazing staff.
We came for the night of the 24 December to have a family Christmas dinner and really enjoyed it. It's a 5 minutes ride on the skyline to get to the top, great experience, reminded us of family ski trip, then you have time to appreciate the fantastic view on Queenstown and the mountains in the background on the outdoor terrace. Once you make your way inside, you can get a drink at the bar and seat by the window while you're waiting to be seated. The food was great, so many choices from so many different cuisine, it was really delicious. Being an all you can eat buffet, the hardest part was to pick what not to eat to keep room for dessert.
Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a great food experience in Queenstown.
