Artsy and cool, offering modern cuisine and stunning presentation, Universo is universally adored.

Its location in the Christchurch Art Gallery says it all. It oozes urban cool as well as offering a retreat from the city. You’ll find yourself surrounded by potted plants and enormous glass walls whilst you relax into their comfy booths, enjoying the sunlight as it drenches the space. Don’t forget to wear your edgiest getup!

For breakfast, tuck into their classic breakfast that has a delicious vegetarian counterpart. If you’re after something truly substantial, go for their pork belly that comes with kimchi and potatoes; you won’t have to worry about lunch!

And for dinner, there are a selection of classic pasta dishes as well as sumptuous salads. For the meat lovers out there, there is a South Island Venison to tuck into or a slow roasted lamb shoulder. Alternatively, the seafood velouté is jam-packed with market fish, clams, mussels, prawns, you name it! A fish lover's paradise to be sure!
