FISHBONE

Good Food Guide - - Central Otago -

This quirky, un­pre­ten­tious eatery in the heart of Queen­stown is all about seafood. Chef-owner Dar­ren Lovell is pas­sion­ate about sourc­ing the fresh­est kaimoana from the wa­ters around the South Is­land, so you might have fried South­ern Ocean ar­row­head squid with romesco sauce and house pick­les, Jack­son Bay oc­to­pus tacos, pan-roasted hake in crazy wa­ter or a South­land fish­er­man’s stew. The meat and veg­etable of­fer­ings are well worth try­ing too, with a big sea­sonal fo­cus and much of the pro­duce com­ing from “Fishbone Farm” in nearby Ar­row­town. The farm also pro­vides the bounty for some of the ex­cel­lent desserts – think peach tarte Tatin with runny cream. The wine list is thought­fully com­piled and well-priced, with plenty of bythe-glass op­tions.
