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

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.

Great food and service!
They were very busy the night we went for dinner but still managed excellent service is was greatly appreciated.

Absolutely delicious fish and chip dish! Great portion size and actually tasty dressing on the salad unlike many other places we’ve been too.

A member of our group needed to eat gluten free and there was a great selection of options for all three courses.

Highly recommend.

We found the waitress service was friendly and attentive. Food was really tasty and with good sized portions.
It's fast becoming our favourite local restaurant. Recommended.

We’ve thoroughly enjoyed Black Rabbit Kitchen and Bar at Bannockburn. We’d been in the area for a week, and visited each day at some stage for food or beverages as there was such a varied and interesting choice; finishing with an awesome dining experience on Saturday night; just amazing food in a relaxed, comfortable and friendly atmosphere. We eagerly await our return to Black Rabbit!!

Had a lovely meal, Food and service was fabulous. The waitress misheard one of our orders, but it was rectified in approximately 5 minutes. Kids meals are great and very good value. Desserts were delicious. We will be back again when in the area.

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.
