Amisfield Bistro offers two distinct dining experiences, both showcasing the finest local, in-season produce. Lunch features an a la carte menu for a relaxed and convivial afternoon, whilst dinner is a multi-course degustation menu that promises an exciting sensorial exploration of the region’s flavours.

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.



‘His (Vaughan) three to seven-course feast is one of the most spectacular meals you can find in New Zealand at the moment.’
