Where to Eat in Queenstown: 8 Foodie Hot Spots & Eateries

Queenstown is a small but mighty tourist town in the South Island, jam-packed full of delicious eateries and foodie hot spots to fill your trip (and you up too).

Known as the adventure capital of New Zealand, you're going to need some good fuel to pair with your daily doses of adrenalin (perhaps afterwards though).

Here are eight of my top picks that undoubtedly will become your return-visit faves too.


The most popular burger-joint in New Zealand, Fergburger should be on everyone's hit list when in Queenstown. During peak hours, the line can be halfway down the street but it's always 100% worth the wait. They consistently serve the most mouth-watering burgers and are so in demand, they're open 21 hours a day.

Address: 42 Shotover Street, Queenstown.

Cookie Bar

For the ultimate sweet tooth and cookie lover, the Cookie Muncher Cookie Bar is the place to be. They serve up delicious fresh hot cookies (the whole shop smells amazing), raw edible cookie dough and cookie-inspired creations like Cookie Shakes and s'mores. If you're a fan of New Zealand's favourite Cookie Time brand, you can even purchase fun Cookie Muncher merchandise instore.

Address: 18 Camp Street, Queenstown.


If you're after the mother of all meat fixes, Flame Bar & Grill is your answer. Specialising in steak and ribs with a secret South African BBQ recipe, their meat is always cooked to perfection. Be sure to make a reservation before rocking up to this popular restaurant. Their ribs are the best I've ever had and are melt-in-the-mouth awesome.

Address: 61 Beach Street, Queenstown.

Balls and Bangles

Opening in 2016, Balls and Bangles is a fun cafe offering indulgent donut balls in multiple flavours, naughty freak shakes and delicious bagels. Whether you have a hankering for something savoury or sweet, they've got you covered. (I particularly love their bacon, egg and avo breakfast bagel).

Address: 15 Church Street, Queenstown.


Right next door to the popular Fergburger, Fergbaker is an incredible bakery offering freshly made breads, flaky pies, sweet slices, pastries and more. If you're a bit #hangry and the line at Fergburger is a tad too long then you won't be disappointed by a Fergbaker pie - they're the best I've ever tried (and they do great coffee too).

Address: 40 Shotover Street, Queenstown.


Queenstown's original chocolate shop, Patagonia Chocolates is a chocaholic's dream. As well as producing the finest hand-made chocolates, they have a coffee roastery and amazing ice cream and sorbets. A chilli hot chocolate to go and a goodie bag of individually picked chocolates is a guilty pleasure of mine every time I visit.

Address: 50 Lakefront, Beach St and also at Queenstown Airport.

Miss Lucy's

For the best woodfired pizza, brews and views in town, head to the trendy rooftop bar and pizzeria, Miss Lucy's. Situated at the top of JUCY Snooze - an awesome hostel and budget-friendly hotel in the centre of town, Miss Lucy's is an Instagram-lovers dream with a great seasonal menu, amazing decor and epic views over Queenstown.

Address: JUCY Snooze Level 4, 47 Camp St, Queenstown.

Mrs Ferg

Last but not least, my favourite place in town for an ice cream fix is Mrs Ferg Gelateria. The third in the Ferg trio chain, it's located directly next to Fergbaker. Like their burgers and baked goods, they have applied their magic-making here and offer a large range of award-winning gelato, sorbet and smoothies. (I highly recommend hazelnut and their salted caramel - soooo good!).

Address: 40 Shotover Street, Queenstown.
