The mountains have been a place of serenity for centuries, and it is still where many people go to find peace of mind and tranquility. Our alpine vibe captures the very essence of our landscape and offers a relaxing space for our guests whilst exploring Queenstown. Jamie Henderson Executive Chef, shares his simple tips on how to combine good nutritious food from Lombardi Kitchen with the great outdoors.
Catch it & we’ll cook it
You can’t get any fresher than straight off the boat. Take a fishing trip on the lake or adventure into the back country rivers. Bring back your prize and we’ll prepare your catch matched with an organic Central Otago wine.
Eating outside is a great way to connect with the landscape at a pace that’s restorative and indulgent. That’s why we’ve come up with a variety of take out options from Lombardi – for something special our hampers are a grazing delight, and for a simple food on the run solution, we have simpler lunch boxes. It’s well worth asking our Concierge team for tips on where to go to find the best tree under which you can spend a lazy afternoon!
After a healthy breakfast from our A La Carte ‘For Your Well Being’ menu, why not take a stroll down to the lake and enjoy everything at a slower pace, and let nature in. The lake’s an invigorating temperature, enough to get your heart racing and circulation flowing!

“We want to make sure our guests enjoy our selection of menus but also ensure we provide healthy options and local produce to maintain that healthy balance. From chia seed jars at breakfast to gourmet dishes at dinner. A signature for us is the wild venison sourced by Fare Game. I like that the meat is organic, full of nutrients and is so lean. Each animal can be traced by GPS so we absolutely know where it comes from. It’s the strong relationship with our landscape that really makes this our signature dish.”
