Lunch at Amisfield winery and bistro
Did my Queesntown eateries part 1 look good? Well take a look at this post!
We had one of the best lunches at Amisfield winery and bistro. The setting is beautiful, and the food is pretty darn great too!

Dinner at Pier 19A good dinner around the bay, would have to be at Pier 19. My family and I actually came here twice! We loved the crayfish so much the first time, we wanted to have it one last night we were in Queenstown.
When we first came, we didn't feel like eating too much. So we called a seafood platter for two (but shared it around) and two of the crayfish. The seafood platter has salad, calamari rings, prawns, salmon dip, mussels, clams and also crayfish. Quite an interesting different variety of seafood. My favourite from that platter (besides the crayfish) was the calamari rings.
The crayfish was sensational. I'm not exaggerating. It is grilled to perfection, and has all these juices inside with the right amount of seasoning. After the meal, Yii-May was saying "I want my own crayfish the next time!"
So, the second time we came, the five of us all got one seafood chowder AND our own crayfish plate :) But instead of the fries, some of us decided to get roasted potatoes and some decided on potato gratin. We were sick of fries. My roasted potatoes were a bit ordinary, and I wished I ordered the potato gratin instead. I kept helping myself with a spoon to my mum's potato gratin. Potato gratin is like a cheesy potato lasagne to me!

They had quite a few desserts, but one dessert in particular stood out to me.
