Christchurch and Canterbury Restaurants

Cook'n with Gas

Updated 02/26/2014

Fodor's Review

Canterbury dining at its finest is offered at this excellent bistro with beef, lamb, and seafood on the menu. To go truly local, try some James Cook Spruce Beer—a modified version of the beer first brewed by the captain in Dusky Sound in 1773, from rimu and manuka tree twigs, which are reputed to have six times the antioxidants of most vegetables. The dining rooms are themed—try the 1950s room, perhaps as you tuck into rolled pork belly or mussels steamed

in spruce beer. Book your meal but you can drop in for a casual predinner drink in the garden bar, with local wines and 60 NZ craft beers to choose from. The sturdy old house is opposite the Arts Centre and was once the university chaplain's home.
