Fodor's Review

This well-established fine-dining bistro serves the best local beef, lamb, and seafood on the menu, accompanied by a strong South Island wine list, including some exceptional reserve vintages. The dining rooms are themed—try the 1950s room, perhaps as you tuck into carved rack of lamb or mussels steamed in spruce beer. For a less pricey, more casual drink and good, substantial food head to the Astro Lounge garden bar out the back, and listen to mellow live music while you enjoy local wines and craft beers. The sturdy old house is opposite the Arts Centre and was once the university chaplain's home.
