Restaurants

If you’ve got a passion for delicious, fresh food then you’ve come to the right place! In the last few decades New Zealand cuisine has undergone a major renaissance, moving away from a stuffy, traditionalist “meat and three veg” past to draw on influences from the many different cultures that make up the local population, and has emerged with a dining culture that is innovative, sophisticated and makes the most of the country’s outstanding produce.

Today, New Zealand restaurant offerings range from silver-service fine dining options, internationally acclaimed establishments and hip hangouts run by local celebrity chefs to casual, fun and family-friendly operations and cheerful local favourites that are often powering out some serious delicious food. Whatever your cuisine preferences, you’ll be catered for– New Zealand’s embraced international cuisine in a big way, and especially in big centres it’s never too tough to find good Indian, Italian, Mexican, or Chinese … the list goes on! Experience a 7-course degustation menu with wine matching, tuck into hearty jazzed-up classics at one of the nation’s many excellent gastro-pubs, or relax on the beach with delicious food from the local takeaway – the choice is yours!
