About Wakatipu Grill

Our Signature lakeside restaurant, the Wakatipu Grill, at the Hilton Queenstown Resort & Spa reflects the best of New Zealand's culinary heritage. The cuisine is inspiring with provocative takes on New Zealand flavors. Vast windows, an open kitchen and rotisserie, along with two circular slate fireplaces lend even more drama to this magnificent space. In the bar, be tempted by yet another captivating perspective of the lake, or an exceptional vintage - the 1000-strong wine cellar has a keen focus on Otago's best winemakers. Linger on the generous terrace where the elements combine to spectacular effect: the lake's indigo depths, the clear air and a decadent outdoor fire pit.

High Tea is served every Sunday 13.00 - 15.00

Good but the service was not ok. In October it was very cold to sit in the backen Corner

Fabulous Vintage High Tea starting off with vintage cups and sauces and gorgeous international spoons. The service was attentive and then the arrival of the scrumptious savory sandwiches, delightful light scones that are warm and super fresh, and gorgeous sweets that are sumptuous! A wonderful afternoon.

Last week we staid up until after 12 to secure the first table reservation as it was my birthday and without the 50% discount we probably couldn't afford to come to the Hilton (being on modest incomes). We arrived for a pre drink and sat by the outside fire pit, soaking up the atmosphere and views. Our waitress Laura gave excellent service and recommended the pumpkin doughnuts which were superb! We had an amazing night. The only feedback I have is that I felt disappointed with the singular vegetarian option. With only one choice the dish was bland and boring. The beans made the whole dish taste chalky and was served with two pieces of veg. My partners meat dish was served with at least 5 other elements on the plate and tbh I was envious.

It's the only place in Queestown where we are never disappointed. Always get an excellent meal and great service. For a family who eat out often it's our favourite for a special meal.
