At Amisfield, whether you’re a seasoned local or from halfway around the globe, we pride ourselves on taking guests out of their culinary comfort zone. There’s an element of surprise in everything we bring to the table.

Our ‘Trust the Chef’ experience, made up of multiple smaller courses with some designed for sharing is the perfect way to take a leap of faith. It has been Amisfield’s signature menu since the Bistro opened in 2005.

Amisfield’s Executive Chef, Vaughan Mabee maintains that our food is pure and simple, but never simplistic. After a stint in San Sebastian, Spain, at a three-star Michelin restaurant Vaughan gained a coveted position in Copenhagen, Denmark, where his extraordinary skills were recognised at Restaurant Noma, the two-star Michelin phenomenon.

‘I’m passionate about sourcing quality New Zealand produce and then creating elegant dishes to complement our wines in the Bistro’, says Vaughan.

12.00pm to 3.00pm. Last seating for ‘Trust the Chef’ menu is 3.00pm.

5.00pm to 8.00pm with seatings at 5.00pm, 5.15pm and 5.30pm.

For tables of more than eight please contact us.  Please note: Online reservations can only be made for groups of up to eight guests.
