The Saucy Chef's philosophy is to offer delicious southern flavours paired with complementing beverages that are best enjoyed with company, resulting in offering diners a gastronomic experience like no other.

Set in sophisticated surroundings with a chic Heineken bar, sunny conservatory space and a thoughtfully designed restaurant in warm jewel tones, you will definitely want to linger here.

And with a Southland/Murihiku inspired, game-led menu there will be much to enjoy while you are there. Enjoy lemon pepper squid, crispy pork belly pieces, and New Zealand lamb sweetbreads covered in herbs and spices and then coated in beer batter which are perhaps too good to share?

Putting New Zealand meat on show, the butcher's block is a star of the menu. Authentic southern steaks aged for 21 days in cuts like the ribeye and eye fillet are on offer or get a little messy with the pork ribs with Asian spices. Classic favourites are also on offer such as beer-battered blue cod and southern-style fried chicken. Alternatively, try something different with the duck two ways, leg of hare or goat shank.

Pair your meal with a beer or wine, and if you thought that was the end of The Saucy Chef's culinary innovation, prepare for a chilli chocolate tart, a lime and lemongrass Brulee or a banoffee jar for dessert.
