Giraffe Restaurant provides a homely and inviting atmosphere, blending fine cuisine with the cosy essence of home comfort.

Situated in the water precinct, it features a culinary experience that embraces New Zealand's rich and diverse flavours, focusing on innovation and quality. The restaurant promotes a sense of community and connection through its shared plates approach, integrating professional service with a relaxed and friendly environment.

The Giraffe Restaurant team believes in creating a complete dining experience, and their menu reflects this. For starters, you can try the crispy Pacific oysters, available in natural or tempura, or the delicious eggplant polpette crumbed with baba ghanoush sauce, parmesan, and tuille.

When it comes to the main dishes, you’re spoilt for choice with their stunning range of dishes, including mouth-watering potato gnocchi with shiitake mushrooms, mushroom puree, crispy kale and ricotta cheese, spinach and ricotta ravioli. The catch of the day is cooked in lightly spiced coconut sauce and served with orzo rice, wild rice, bok choy and fresh herbs. From the farm, enjoy beef short rib braised and boneless with seasonal vegetables, potato gratin and dijon mustard, and organic chicken breast wrapped in prosciutto and stuffed with spinach and mozzarella, with seasonal vegetable, carrot puree.
