Matakauri Lodge introduces flexible Queenstown dining

Posted by Amy Tapper on December 13, 2022

Queenstown abounds in fabulous restaurants, and many of our Matakauri Lodge guests enjoy the opportunity to explore what is on offer in our dynamic local dining scene.

New from the summer season of 2022/23, Matakauri Lodge's unique and “flexible” dining option is well suited to longer staying guests and the curious culinarian! Our savvy team of insiders have curated their most loved Queenstown dining experiences and secured a limited number of tables for our guests.

Guests may choose this seamless dining experience for one or all nights of their stay. Such evenings will begin in style at Matakauri Lodge for pre-dinner drinks and canapes, before being driven from door to door to the restaurant. The lodge will also provide a voucher for return transport, allowing returns to be flexible and in a guest's own time. The cost of these meals is included within the Matakauri Lodge tariff, with the only extra charges being for selected beverages/wines, and optional gratuities.

Opportunities for these popular tables are limited, and early and advance bookings are encouraged to take advantage of these iconic Queenstown dining experiences. It’s a great way to truly make the most of a Queenstown adventure!


Perched above Steamer Wharf in one of Queenstown’s most iconic locations – Boardwalk is a contemporary favourite.  Showcasing wonderful seafood, select meats and lovingly prepared local ingredients, it is a wonderful example of modern New Zealand cuisine

We love...fresh and bright interiors with glimpses of the lake and mountains, this is something of a hidden gem in Queenstown. Clean and light modern cookery, great local flavours and a fabulous wine list.  Caviar and cocktails, steak and oysters, it's a contemporary classic!


A modern, light filled urban eatery in the heart of town, bustling and energetic.  Tucked away down a laneway you’ll feel like you’ve discovered a hidden classic, very much an authentic New Zealand experience.

An inventive and well-balanced menu gives you the chance to explore some local treasures and indulge in regional favourites.  Modern flavours and a commitment to artisanal suppliers create a menu that is ‘of New Zealand’.

We love... their take on a Southland Cheese Roll – it's a must-try.  And a pre-dinner cocktail at the bar allows a peek into the kitchen in full flow.

Jervois Steak House

Jervois Steak House celebrates a love of meat and is a fine example of the genre. Relax in the classic steak house interior with leather booths, exposed brick and dark timbers.  Browse the best cuts and a well crafted wine list, balanced by outstanding seafood options. 

We love... a pre dinner Negroni or Old Fashioned, followed by Red King Crab and Queenstown’s best fries.  You’re just a well-matched shiraz away from heaven! And that’s before you settle on a steak.
