Price Point: Mains from $15 - $35
With Barberra in its centre, Christchurch has never looked so chic. It's ultra-modern, cool and focussed around local ingredients.
To say its spacious would be an understatement. Its high ceilings, enormous windows (that are covered with uber stylish shutters) and hanging plants make it a wonderfully restorative spot. Its simple colour scheme of brown, black and white certainly proves that less is more.
Whatever you order, you can be sure it has been prepared with precision. Begin with some exquisite tapas or punchy starters, like tofu sticks or a sensational venison tataki; a small plate can really pack some flavour! Then it’s time to shine the spotlight on the mains that deliver on taste and presentation.
The duck breast comes with a coconut parsnip puree and the pomegranate chicken thigh with feta and cauliflower is zingy and fresh. If you want something light, look no further than their Ora King Salmon with watercress salad; it takes salad to another level with added beetroot puree and dill emulsion. How fancy!
