With so many delicious dishes on
offer we took our time selecting.
Elements offers an extensive
menu which includes a range of
starters, mains, pizza and
desserts with a very kiwi flavour.
To start, we shared the crispy
crumbed Aorangi double cream
brie with beetroot and horopito
salsa, $9, and were not
disappointed. The tasty morsels
were delicious and the salsa was
tasty offering the perfect
appetiser before our main meal.
Keen to test the menu we
ordered two mains to share; the
Canterbury Angus beef eye fillet
with horseradish mash, red
onion and horopito relish, piko
piko and Central Otago pinot
noir jus, $37, got top marks and
was cooked to perfection.
The meal also offered my dining
companion and I our first
opportunity to try pikopiko, an
edible fern shoot, which this
fussy diner thought to be pretty
good. We also ordered the
Rangitikei chicken breast stuffed
with cottage cheese, spinach,
bacon and macadamia nuts with
garlic mashed potato, broccoli
and native fern pesto, $34. The
meal was tasty, but the chicken a
little dry which was
Rounding out our dining
experience with a molten
chocolate pudding with hokey
pokey ice cream and Heilala
vanilla cream, $14, was a grand
idea. The melting chocolate and
ice-cream combination was
delicious and perfect to share.
From the moment we arrived
until the moment we left we
received excellent service from
several hotel staff. Our waitress
was friendly and offered advice
on the menu and also offered to
check with the chef when we had
questions she could not answer.
We were checked on regularly
and had our water glasses filled
without having to ask. The only
aspect of the service which let
the restaurant down was the
unreasonable length of time we
had to wait for our first drinks.
The quiet and relaxed
atmosphere at Elements
provided the perfect setting to
wind down after a busy day at
work. Having arrived feeling a bit
tired, it took no time for us to
feel completely relaxed.
The spacious restaurant, located
on the edge of central
Queenstown, offers a dining
option for groups of all sizes and
ages. The atmosphere offers the
perfect setting for a date,
meeting or get together with
friends. The menu is fairly priced
for the quality of food on offer
and caters to a range of tastes
and dietary requirements.
With great food, great service
and a relaxing atmosphere,
Elements Restaurant is a great
choice for anyone looking to
enjoy a delicious meal in a quiet
setting. The staff were
welcoming, friendly and went
the extra mile to ensure our
dining experience was enjoyable.
The menu offers a unique twist
on traditional kiwi fare with
plenty of choice to suit all tastes.
We really enjoyed our meal and
would recommend Elements to
local residents and visitors.
