Cuisine: New Zealand, Spanish, Tapas/Small Plates
Price Point: Mains from $10 - $20
This laid-back restaurant does a mean line in Spanish tapas with a Kiwi twist, local wine and craft coffee.
Nestling at the base of boutique hotel Ohtel, it is named after George Duppa, the English adventurer who was the first resident of Oriental Bay and New Zealand’s first millionaire.
The menu is a joyful explosion of traditional Spanish recipes with plenty of Kiwi attitude. In fact, 90 per cent of the ingredients come from within 200km of the restaurant!
Think gooey croquetas, mussels served ‘a la marinera’ and traditional meat pies bursting with slow-cooked lamb well-seasoned with paprika.
The wine list is a love letter to the best artisan producers in the Wairarapa and Marlborough regions, and don’t forget to try a craft beer. We rate the Hakituri organic Kiwi Pilsner...
