Cuisine: New Zealand
Price Point: Mains from $20 - $35+

This much-loved restaurant combines top notch Kiwi tucker with genuine Southern hospitality.

As popular with locals as it is with visitors, its stripped back interiors may be as cool as they come but you can expect the warmest of welcomes from its easy-going staff.

The menus provide a delicious taste of the Central Otago region. Enjoy fresh seafood, hearty salads, mouthwatering meat dishes and a selection of specials which changes daily. There is also a dedicated pizza and kids menu.

Stand out dishes include rich rabbit and shitake mushroom ragu, the chef’s signature seafood chowder and pork ribs smothered in sticky barbeque sauce. Time to roll up your sleeves and get stuck in!

Feeling thirsty? Enjoy a fabulous selection of fine wines from New Zealand and Australia or opt for a refreshing pint of Altitude or Speights beer, both of which are on tap.

With a focus on honest, wholesome cooking and good vibes, Black Rabbit Kitchen is the perfect spot for a casual dinner.

The Black Rabbit is a quant little restaurant with good personal engagement, the food was well presented in a timely manner & very enjoyable. Always a good sign when plates are empty & looking to make another reservation

Amazing service very friendly and inviting, the food was out of this world! Yum I had the lamb cutlets, partner had the ribs. The food was perfectly executed and we can’t wait to visit again thank you for the perfect evening.

This is by far our new favourite local restaurant, having recently moved to the area. Fantastic service and went the extra mile to explain items to us. The food was just incredible and my husband and I couldn’t stop saying how delicious it was throughout the meal! It’s almsot all we talked about! Amazing flavours and textures. Have planned what we will have next on the menu for when we go back soon. Highly recommend Black Rabbit without a doubt.

We had a fantastic time out at Black Rabbit on Saturday! The weather was perfect for sitting outside and enjoying sunshine. The food was incredible - melt in your mouth meat and so tasty. Looking forward to going again - perhaps not for First Table though, so we can sit and enjoy it a bit longer rather than feeling rushed to be in and out in an hour.

Not having been for dinner for some time we were really pleased to have the usual high standard. The soup was a great warmer for mid winter and the steak was cooked to perfection. This was all capped off with a delightful desert and great service.

We really enjoyed dining outside on a hot summer evening. There was a good selection of potions on the menu, and the meal was tasty. We chose seafood which was cooked realy well.
The service was casual and friendly. Highly recommend

Libby Berger

The food was excellent. We all ordered the fish special which was so delicious and well cooked. The dessert that followed was also delightful. I would highly recommend this restaurant to prospective diners. We were given plenty of food and it was presented well. The only thing that slightly let it down was the service. Initially when we arrived the waiters were very attentive. However, after finishing our mains we waited over 45 mins for a dessert menu to be brought to the table and eventually we had to go up to the counter to ask for one. Otherwise it was a very enjoyable evening. Thanks
