Located in Merivale, JDV (from the French saying ‘Joie De Vivre’) expresses an enjoyment of life in every dining detail, from the passionately cooked food, to the warm hospitality.
Weaving this philosophy into his food, Executive Head Chef Josh Hunter celebrates the flavours of Canterbury through his contemporary cuisine. Focusing on seasonally driven recipes and precise presentation, Hunter has crafted a menu of exquisite local delicacies.
Treat yourself to their signature Te Mana lamb rack, or discover the mouthwatering Freedom Farms Master Stock Pork belly with a delicious chilli caramel. Vegetarians will love the Risotto Verde with Asparagus and the Confit Fennel, or if you fancy something lighter, choose from the bar snacks options, homemade mini beef burgers or JDV Antipasto Platter.
Established in 2000, JDV is well-loved among locals for a stylish bite to eat. With its vibrant atmosphere and stunning range of fine food and wine, this is a must-visit on the Christchurch dining scene.
