Bars and Restaurant

Madam Woo, a great choice in New Zealand. They developed a special, Asian-inspired menu that blends traditional staples with contemporary flavours. Hawker rolls are incredibly popular and the cocktail bar is highly commended too.

This fine dining establishment has somewhat of a misleading name. Indeed, meats of all cuts and variations are the prime attraction, but Botswana Butchery's menu is also packed with seafood delicacies and vegetarian-friendly options. As an added bonus, the charming cottage-style restaurant also has a remarkably comprehensive wine list that aptly complements its diversified food offerings.

A casual restaurant set in a literal cow shed on Queenstown's Cow Lane. Legend has it that dairy farmers used to walk the lane to get to the milking shed some 100 years ago. These days, The Cow Restaurant is accessed via a classic stable door. The menu has remained the same since the 1970s and the crowds go absolutely wild for their pizzas.
