A kitchen for all seasons

At Amisfield Bistro, our philosophy has always been to celebrate the best of what’s local and in season.

Our dishes represent the work of a small group of fishermen, hunters, gatherers and farmers we have chosen to work with. We choose these people as partners in our menu for the quality of their produce, as well as their commitment to sustainability and ethical farming practices. We only use New Zealand ingredients and wherever we can they are sourced within a range of 250km from the restaurant.



Amisfield Bistro serves our signature degustation menu – a 5 course lunch and 7 course dinner experience designed to be matched with a selection of our famous wines.

Sophisticated, inventively presented dishes are designed using classic techniques with a creative twist to bring out the best of in-season, locally-sourced produce.
