So, you like cheese? Don't we all! That's why Cheese Bar is all that cheese lovers in Christchurch and beyond are talking about.

Welcome to heaven. This version of heaven looks suitably ethereal, thanks to its slick, white exterior and contemporary interior that's flooded with natural light. Cheese Bar is classy yet approachable, elegant yet relaxed and offers a dining experience that centres around our favourite ingredients. So let's see what they're whipping up.

Featuring award-winning cheeses from all over the world, they've created a menu that acknowledges culinary traditions from around the globe. Italy serves very well in this regard and has inspired their gnocchi mixed with creamy gorgonzola cheese, as well as the cheese garlic bread and mozzarella sticks. Southern Europe also offers a hand with the Spanish chorizo that comes with plenty of goat cheese and dukkah.

The charcuterie board also makes a strong statement with three variations, all of which have a melted cheese skillet on the side and heaps of veggies, potatoes, pickles and crackers. And for those who want to become one with the cheese, the cheese lava burger is exactly as decadent as it sounds; featuring a slow-cooked brisket, caramelised onions and bacon. Served with this meat feast is a jar of specially crafted cheese sauce designed to be poured to create a lava-like effect adding an extra touch of cheesy goodness to your meal.

Finally, round things off with (you guessed it) more cheese, except this time it's sweet! With a daily cheesecake and cream cheese brulee, you'd feta believe how much cheese you can handle!
