Had a lovely dinner sitting outside. Excellent friendly staff. Tasty food. I had the steak and it was the best I had had in ages. We came back for breakfast the next day and one of the waitresses was on duty again and reconised us which was really nice. Highly recommended

Good good food and superb location make for dining until "late" which is good given its popularity. Burger was a bit mushy but soup perfect. Reuben also a hit. Recommended.

The harbor area where Ivy & Lola's is located is a very busy spot. This restaurant was highly recommended by three locals I had talked to. We were not disappointed. The slow-cooked ribeye was excellent. Our waitress was Nicola and she was exceptional! I would ask for her when you arrive. You won't be disappointed in the service or the... More

Eat outside or inside with antique radios serving as the theme and includes a pub. Their special pulled pork and rice burrito with green salad was excellent, while the burgers, chips (fries), and hash brown patties were good but nothing special. Fast service.

Ivy and Lola's certainly have an innovative breakfast menu. An innovative menu however will never hit the mark if a hot breakfast arrives just luke warm. After a long wait after ordering, my very cooled off fish croquettes and poached eggs simply signaled that the waiting staff are not up to the task. Others in our party were similarly disappointed.

Old radios adorn the interior and make for interesting conversation. The rueben sandwich was nice but not a deli quality serving. Definitely recommend for lunch

Queenstown is such a popular destination that there is nowhere to park; we found a spot which was good for 30 minutes and luckily we were not ticketed when we returned 90 minutes later. Ivy & Lola's was also hopping and so we were seated outside - OK but a little on the cool side. The views of the surrounding... More

Stopped for lunch spontaneously on a rainy afternoon and was happily surprised . Had a good New Zealand beer , chicken curry and a sticky toffee pudding and my wife had a tubouli and cauliflower salad , all quite good . Good service . Good value . Funcky jukebox theme with good 50's and 60's American music . Nice choice... More

Great location with quirky decor. The food is excellent. Service is good too. I believe the owner is one of the chefs which is always a good sign

We ended up, ordering these 3 menus. The burger was great with hash brown and green salad. The seafood soup was marvelous, worth trying. The pancake was huge and just regular. The service was nice. The staff were friendly and warm.
