The Bunker - Queenstown

Name: The Bunker

Address:  Cow Lane,  
Queenstown 9300,  
New Zealand 
+64 (0)3 441 8030

Food: ModOz,
Average price: Entree: $17-$26, Mains: $36-$42, Dessert: $14-16

Complimentary: Nothing

Entree: Whitebait - $26
Crispy West Coast whitebait with a cucumber, ginger and lychee salsa and lemon yoghurt dressing.

R thought this was a touch boring.

Tuna - $23
Sesame crusted yellow fin tuna tataki with shitake and spring onions and a tahini dressing.

This was a little dull also.

Mains: Pork belly - $37
 Twelve hour braised crisp pork belly, with roasted Stewart Island scampi on a carrot and ginger puree with sesame coleslaw and coriander jus.

R found the skin too chewy and fatty to eat and didn't enjoy it.

Vegetarian - $36
Roasted almond and chick pea filo on a warm salad of artichoke, olives, capers and goats cheese with a vincotta dressing.

This was pleasant - the filo was flaky and the filling tasty, the vincotta dressing's acidity helped to balance the other salty, heavy flavours.

Dessert: Brownie - $15
Chocolate brownie with strawberries, raspberry puree, white chocolate and vanilla ice cream

Classic flavours that pared beautifully although the brownie was a touch burned but hubby didn't mind it all and happily ate it up.

Cost: $137NZD - for 2 entrees, 2 mains, 1 dessert.

Service: OK.

Atmosphere: Dark and mismatched. The green library lights hung over old paintings doesn't seem to fit with the bar at one end. The restaurant attracts an older clientele despite its 4am closing time. I coulnd't tell you much about the decor as it was just too dark.

Parking: Limited.


Hours: Daily 5pm - 4am.

Would I return: No.
