Get ready to be 'the one' who discovers the culinary treasures of Christchurch at The One Restaurant & Bar. The rooftop location in Central Christchurch offers beautiful views, and an inviting atmosphere that perfectly blends contemporary chic with a touch of classic charm, all setting the stage for an unforgettable dining experience.

The menu at The One is a canvas of creativity, showcasing a medley of flavours that are as delightful to the palate as they are to the eye. Begin your culinary journey with the artisanal sourdough, a perfect prologue to the gastronomic story that unfolds. The escargot, bathed in persillade butter and nestled on a bed of smooth potato puree, offers a taste of classic French cuisine with a modern twist. For seafood enthusiasts, the seared scallop with its unique combination of fennel puree, sake foam, and bacon marmalade is a must-try, creating a harmony of flavours that dance on the tongue.

As the evening progresses, the main courses beckon. The grass-fed beef fillet is a masterpiece of texture and taste, accompanied by seasonal vegetables and pomme duchess, all brought together with a rich red wine jus. The Canter Valley duck breast, with its berry red wine sauce and duck fat potatoes, is a symphony of succulent flavours that encapsulate the essence of fine dining.

To top off this culinary escapade, The One's drinks menu is a treasure trove of choices. From signature cocktails that add a splash of excitement to your evening to a decadent selection of desserts like the raspberry choux au craquelin, every sip and bite is designed to elevate your dining experience to its crescendo.
