Baja – Mexican Restaurant

Restaurants/ Bars


Inspired by Baja California, where cultures once collided in the surf break during the heady, hazy days of the 1950s and is today renowned as an adventurous fusion of cuisine and culture. We’re bringing the beaches of Baja California to Beach Street, Queenstown.

One of Queenstown's most spectacular restaurants for sure- the perfect combination of Aotearoa/Italian fusion! Aosta, in the North of Italy, is an alpine valley with a defined four seasons, flora, fauna...and soils very similar to Central Otago. Aosta and Central Otago both lie on the 45th parallel, and the synergies between the regions terroirs are striking. The cuisine of Aosta is inspired by the cooking techniques of Northern Italy, paired with ingredients carefully selected from growers, breeders, suppliers and wine grown on the land around Central Otago and Arrowtown.

Blue Kanu

Hands down our favourite restaurant in Queenstown. Mixing both Pacifica and Asian styles, together with blending the two cultures, aims to create a style and feel that we call “Polynasia”. The combination...of Asian cuisine is recognised as healthy, fresh and exotic, encompassing Pacific influence, along with ancient spices, helping to create a new cultural soul food not seen in this region before. Their guests are encouraged to come and dine Polynasia tapa-style plates at the bar or in the restaurant and soak up the art, culture and friendliness of the Pacific. Our Hula hut-style bar is ready to make you the perfect cocktail. Tāhuna's must-have is the 'duck nachos'. You won't regret it!
