Cuisine: European
Price Point: Mains from $25 - $35

Welcome to Belgian Beer Cafe Torenhof, a Christchurch institution that’s as famous for its dazzling beer selection and old world charm as it is for traditional European dishes.

Mussels (Belgium’s national dish) are the signature here, imaginatively served in everything from white wine sauce to spicy Creole-style lasagne and sharing platters.

Not a fish lover? Savour chargrilled meats, juicy burgers, gourmet salads and a delicious selection of small plates. Braised pork belly bruschetta is not to be missed...

Dark wooden panelling and vintage lamps give off a warm, cozy glow that will make you want to linger over a beer (or three!) and there are more than 30 to choose from. The drinks list also includes a selection of premium spirits, cocktails and Kiwi wines.

Of course, it just wouldn’t really be Belgian without a waffle or two. Enjoy yours drizzled in chocolate, scattered with berries or covered in banana caramel sauce.

Myself and two others went for lunch on a Sunday arvo and we were all really impressed. I ordered the half pot of mussels and they were hands down the best mussels I have ever had. My partner and friend were also really impressed with their dishes. We each left saying we would have been happy to pay full price for the dishes we had. Also, the lady who was serving us was very attentive and really lovely. We will definitely be back!

Dining at Torenhof was a great experience. The service was friendly and prompt, the food was delicious and the surroundings were perfect for a group of people who wanted to be able to have a good conversation. Several of our group come from Dutch families so they were delighted to see the rookworst sausage on the menu! Everyone enjoyed their meals. Thanks to our lovely wait staff who recommended the beer - also delicious. I would recommend Torenhof for their food, the ambiance and wonderful staff.
