In a renovated villa on the main road into Hanmer, No.31 serves exceptional food. Its well-established local chef specializes in modern NZ cuisine, using the best local produce, offered with a selection of wines from the Waipara/Hanmer area. Candle lit, moody, and romantic inside, you can also dine alfresco in summer. Favorites include the grilled scallops on saffron risotto with lemon foam and proscuitto drizzled with black truffle oil and for dessert the hot sticky licorice
pudding with butterscotch sauce, but this place has a 2014 Beef and Lamb Excellence Award, too. It's recommended by locals as probably the best in town.
