THE HALLMARK OF A GREAT FEAST IS THE INGREDIENTS.
Around the world chefs go to great lengths in search of the best ingredients. We do the same by sourcing as much local and organic produce as we can get our hands on! With a focus on blending a unique NZ flavour, we’re spoilt with the selection of primary foods our local area offers. Food is a big part of a celebration and it’s really important that it’s exactly right. That’s why we cater to all dietary requirements and offer variations on menus and themes to suit you.
Whatever your food vision we’ll work with you to make it a reality. And if you don’t want it all to end, it doesn’t have to for the family or select group. Enjoy brunch the following day, champagne breakfast or a romantic breakfast and lunch for two – just because you can!
