Good Food Guide - - Central Otago -

This quirky restau­rant in the heart of Queen­stown’s centre is the place to go for se­ri­ously good seafood dishes. Chefowner Dar­ren Lovell (above) sources supremely fresh kaimoana from around the lower South Island and is a mas­ter at pre­par­ing it. Re­cent high­lights in­cluded a beau­ti­ful oven-roasted whole floun­der with ca­pers, lemon and browned but­ter, and a melt­ingly ten­der Span­ish-style oc­to­pus starter with potato and chorizo hash, pick­led green toma­toes and aioli. It’s heart­en­ing to see that as much care goes into the veg­etable side dishes, such as a won­der­ful salad of lightly pick­led beets, baby sil­ver­beet, cress and feta, and mor­eish fried brus­sels sprouts with toasted pine nuts and sherry vine­gar. The wine list has been thought­fully cho­sen and ser­vice is as­sured. 7 Beach St, Queen­stown, ph: 03-442 6768, fish­bonequeen­ Din­ner 7 days; mains $25.90-$46
