Oro means 'gold' in Spanish and Italian; a fitting name indeed for this most precious of restaurants. Welcome to the home of sophisticated dining in Queenstown.
A gilded celebration of the finer things in life, Oro is a grand and opulent offering housed in Queenstown's first 6-star one-of-a-kind boutique hotel, The Carlin. Where shimmering marble surfaces are complemented by crushed velvet booths, intricate tiling and sparkling mirrors, this restaurant is a treat for all the senses. Boasting an irresistible air of exclusivity, this is a top destination for anyone looking to mark a special occasion in style.
Such an establishment only hires world-class talent. Introducing Executive Chef Thomas Barta, the Michelin Star chef who has joined the kitchens of celebrated chefs like Gordon Ramsay. His curated menu is a flavourful explosion of NZ produce that incorporates French and Asian cooking styles. Here you'll find decadence by the mouthful with the panko-crumbed veal loin and béarnaise sauce, Royalburn lamb rack with goats cheese potatoes and venison loin from South Island, served with mushroom duxelles and kūmara puree.
At Oro, quality produce is at the centre of everything. That's why their prime cuts are worth considering with the likes of Queensland Carrara Wagyu Scotch and Otago lamb on the menu. Elevate your selection with any of their sides, like some classic macaroni cheese, crispy agria potatoes or a baby beetroot salad. Finally, such flavours demand a seductive drizzle of creamy peppercorn sauce or Café de Paris butter. A royal experience in Queenstown, Oro is where elegant luxury and mesmerising food reside.
For your convenience, valet parking is available for a fee.
