Rata Dining - 3 Course Dinner Experience


Exclusive Bookme Special - 3 Course Dinner Valued At $80 - From ONLY $42


Taking inspiration from the vast Southern landscape & all that epitomizes New Zealand, Rata provides a 'uniquely Southern' dining experience in Queenstown.

The first collaboration between Josh Emett- Internationally recognised, Michelin Starred Chef & celebrity Judge on NZ Masterchef and highly regarded local restaurateur, Fleur Caulton, Rata is widely recognised as one of NZ's leading contemporary restaurants.

Tucked discreetly behind the 1876 Courthouse and other heritage Buildings, the decor uses warm, earthy tones & influences from the landscape.

The entire back wall is lit with a magnificent photograph of lush Native Forest and this unique touch, mixed with local polished stones, natural woods and other very modern, industrial components make the dining room both sophisticated and quirky at the same time.

The menu showcases Seasonal produce from the best growers and producers NZ had to offer, changing regularly and paired with a wine list that proudly highlights an eclectic mix of highly regarded and little known gems, from both the Central Otago Region and further afield.

A large collection of wines by the glass offer the diner variety and the opportunity to match their chosen drop with their meal, and here the knowledgeable staff are more than happy to offer up suggestions.


With this exclusive Book Me offer, Rata offers you the opportunity to experience their unique style of Southern dining and choose 3 courses from their much awarded a la carte evening menu:



  • Southland cheese roll, bitter leaves, honeycomb, hazelnut, pear

    I had the grilled octopus for a starter, lamb for the main dish and berries with crumble and mascarpone cheese and everything was fantastic! Service was great too.

    A special occasion, my sister & husband visiting from the UK celebrating my sisters 70th Birthday. What a lovely way to spend our last night in Queenstown. The food and service was nothing but exceptional. Sorry but one criticism, thought the wine was a little expensive. My wife and I have had opportunity to eat in some exceptional restaurants to make this small criticism. Thank you though for making it a special evening with the waitress being outstanding
