Pescatore

Pescatore Review

It may have started out as a specialist seafood restaurant but Pescatore is now best known for its creative, conceptual New Zealand cuisine. From the moment you set foot into the white space-age foyer, tastebuds are tantalized. Situated on the second floor of the George hotel, there are great views over Hagley Park, but artfully prepared dishes are what should command your full attention. Choose from the à la carte or degustation menu and enjoy some unusual pairings (think celery sorbet with chocolate). There's an extensive wine list to accompany interesting food that will be a talking point and you will never walk away thinking you could have cooked it at home.
