Papanui's very own Lone Star from the legendary kiwi group that specialises in mighty meat dishes, killer cocktails, and good vibes. Renowned for their superb staff and vibrant atmosphere, this is a fantastic place to bring the family for a memorable night out.

When Steve Ward and Tim Whelan founded it in 1988 they were on a mission to make restaurants fun and boy did they deliver. Think a classic party soundtrack, quirky menus featuring the likes of 'Stand By Your Lamb' (slow-roasted lamb shoulder) and a hip team.

With plenty of seating inside, you're also spoilt for choice with their spacious courtyard that will top off your dining experience.

Choose from mouthwatering steaks or the famous redneck ribs. Or perhaps the fresh seafood or free-range chicken. There's also vegetarian and gluten-free dishes – there’s something for everyone at Lone Star! A kids menu is also available.

When it comes to drinks, the world is your oyster – choose from the best selection of New Zealand wines, ample craft beers and don’t miss out on the world-famous frozen margaritas!
