About First Table

Founded and headquartered in Queenstown, First Table has been a trailblazer in hospitality technology for almost a decade. Our platform expertly crafts culinary connections between restaurants and food enthusiasts across New Zealand, Australia, the UK, Ireland, Canada and Indonesia. We transcend the ordinary 'deals website'; at First Table, we strive to unlock extraordinary dining experiences and cultivate lasting relationships through a mutual love for exquisite cuisine.

For us, Queenstown is not just a workplace; it's a thriving, vibrant community nestled amongst the beautiful mountains and sparkling lakes of New Zealand. Living in Queenstown offers a unique balance of outdoor adventures and cosmopolitan amenities that make it a fantastic place to work and live.
