  • Dux de Lux

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    Christchurch Restaurants

    Update 21 November 2012 The Dux de Lux is back - somehow: It is now the Dux Dine (because the name Dux de Luxe will be kept for the hoped-for re-opening of the legendary place at its original site at the Arts Centre) and located at 28 Riccarton Road. As at the original Dux you will also get a good selection of vegetarian food and fresh seafood....

  • Waterfront Café

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    Auckland Restaurants

    Sarah and I needed an excuse to come visit Auckland, and there was just such a reason when Kiwi decided to throw a mid-winter VT meeting. Her choice for the restaurant was the Waterfront Cafe, which is considered the most reasonably priced restaurant in a high price region of Auckland called the Viaduct Basin. The evening was very exciting,...

  • Fishermans Table

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    Wellington Restaurants

    This restaurant has a perfect location - situated at the waterfront of Oriental Bay, only a short distance to Wellingtons city center, it has a splendid view of the bay and the harbour district. The restaurant is very popular among both locals and tourists. So it is highly recommended to reserve a table in advance. Service and quality were...

  • The Palms

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Dunedin Restaurants

    The Palms Restaurant is set in a older style building,looking out at the Queens Garden. We booked in for my daughter's 18th birthday and ate the most delicious food. The presentation, taste,quantity and staff are to be recommended. This is a 5star plus restaurant in Dunedin. I'd recommend you try here and won't be disappointed. I tried the NZ Lamb....

  • Poppys Cafe.

    Tirau Restaurants

    Poppys (sic) Cafe in Tirau bakes it's own cakes and scones. There are delicious quiches and pies. The coffee is great and the prices what one would expect. Service can be a little slow and you might have to get up to get your own sugar!

  • Roquette Restaurant and Bar

    Whakatane Restaurants

    Roquette Restaurant was such a pleasant surprise and wonderful dining experience in this small coastal town. We dined for lunch so I don't have evening experience, but if I am ever back here overnight will dine here for sure. Located across the road from the river, sadly the water view is obscured, but nice lookout all the same. The ambience is...

  • Aroy Dee Thai Restaurant

    Takapuna Restaurants

    Aroy Dee has a great $10 lunch deal offering, making it the perfect place for both seniors and backpackers alike, as well as everyone else. A nice large dining area, you can separate yourself from others if you wish. Staff were exemplary and determined to please the clientele. We got our food very fast, and efficiently, as well the staff returned...

  • Art Center Foodstalls

    4 out of 5 stars

    Christchurch Restaurants

    Post-earthquake update 9 June 2011/21 November 2012 You find some of the foodstalls that used to be at the Arts Centre at the Ferrymead Heritage Park. Others can be found along Worcester Boulevard and at the Re:Start container mall. The Arts Centre is the Arts Centre - and not the Art Centre, as the VT database suggests... It is a pity that...

  • The Loaded Hog

    Auckland Restaurants

    The Loaded Hog is a large pub/restaurant located on the waterfront at Prince's Wharf in downtown Auckland. It offers a big outdoor seating area (facing the wharf), a cavernous interior and an upstairs seating area with a balcony overlooking the wharf. It is a nice setting in which to enjoy a pub lunch, or just a beer, while watching the world go...

  • The Cow Restaurant

    4 out of 5 stars

    Queenstown Restaurants

    The Cow Restaurant is a local pizza and spaghetti house and the menu has remained unchanged since 1976. They hand roll their own pizza bases and make their own breads. It's a bit of an insitution and well known to the locals who come back again and again. I would recommend making a booking as it remains very well patronised. The Cow Restaurant...

  • One Red Dog

    4 out of 5 stars

    Wellington Restaurants

    One Red Dog is listed as a pizza restaurant and it, in my experience, delivers some of the best. Located off Wellington's Courtenay Place in Blair St, ORD is very popular so get there early. There are tables in prime locations by the window and many others dotted around catering for different group sizes. Another feature of ORD is its home brewed...

  • The Albert Arms Tavern

    Dunedin Restaurants

    This solid establishment is world famous in Dunedin for its yummy doorstep toasted sandwiches. You can get other hearty pub fare at student prices. The Albert is a nice plcae to while away a windy Otago afternoon watching the rugby or cricket. Doorstep toasted sandwich of course!!

  • The Castle Cafe.

    Tirau Restaurants

    Approaching Tirau from the south, you will see a big castle on a hill. Of course we don't have castles in New Zealand and this one is actually a cafe where you can stop for a cup of coffee and something to eat. Being a castle freak, I was intrigued enough to go up and have a look, but I didn't stop for food. There is a gift shop inside and the...

  • Blankenberge Belgian Beer Cafe

    Takapuna Restaurants

    There a number of Belgian Beer Cafes around Auckland but this one is situated near the beach in Hurstmere Road in Takapuna. Hours. Mon-Fri 11.30am-late, Sat 10am-late, Sun 9am-late. Nt to be missed, my perennial favourite is moules (mussels) frites and mayonnaise. Consumed with a beer - what could be better

  • Le Bon Bolli

    4 out of 5 stars

    Christchurch Restaurants

    Le Bon Bolli is virually two restaurants in one. Downstairs the atmosphere is more relaxed and casual with upstairs being the place of a more formal dining experience with service and prices to match. The menus are quite different with the downstairs brasserie not having the extensive choice. This restaurant isn't a place to go for a cheaper meal...

  • Mission Bay Fisheries

    Auckland Restaurants

    Mission Bay Fisheries is a small fish and chips shop and fast food joint opposite the beach at Mission Bay. I ate here one lunchtime in April 2006 having made the 7km walk from central Auckland in the morning before making the return walk later in the afternoon. I didn't feel so guilty eating fish and chips amid all that walking! There are a...

  • Skyline Restaurant.

    4 out of 5 stars

    Queenstown Restaurants

    If ever you need an excuse for a food feast indulgence then I would happily recommend the Skyline Restaurant buffet. Each night they serve up an impressive smorgasbord specialising in fresh, local produce and while your feast you are also treated to the most spectacular night views of Queenstown. The buffet begins at 5:45pm and you will need to...

  • The Green Parrot

    4 out of 5 stars

    Wellington Restaurants

    The Green Parrot has been in operation since 1926 and is a bit of an institution in Wellington. Located near the corner of Taranaki and Cable streets the restaurant is rather basic with older formica tables and comfy old style seats. On arriving you are seated and then get some slices of bread with some knobs of butter delivered - rather weird in...

  • Café Bismarck

    2.5 out of 5 stars

    Christchurch Restaurants

    Heading into Poplar lane for a drink one evening, we entered Bismarck and instantly felt the cold atmpsphere. The owner, Hagen, was yelling and having a go at a waitress, which instantly brought the mood down. Secondly, after making our orders, he enquired where we were from. When we responded Serbia and Russia (for our two respective groups of...

    Cin Cin is a very fashionable restaurant and one of the oldest established restaurants in the city. It has very unique location in the old Ferry Building overlooking the water. The setting is luxurious, high ceilings, granite and beautiful table settings. The flavour is Italian and Asian with pastas, risottos and noodles. They also have wood-fired...

  • Fergburger

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Queenstown Restaurants

    They have a lot of variesties burgers to choose from. Great taste, great value of money and all the staffs are friendly too. Avoid the peak hours during lunch as they are always long waits outside the restaurant. They also have b/fast time from 5.30am till about 9am. Make sure you grab a burger from Fergburger when you drop by Queenstown.

  • Soi Cafe and Bar

    Wellington Restaurants

    This restaurant is located so superbly - right on the water at Greta Point with a view of planes taking off and landing at Rongotai Airport - that I could have forgiven quite a lot. As it was there was really nothing to forgive. I even liked the adventure of not being sure where it was. Bit of a cunning lark that. It was obviously a boat house and...

  • Sign of the Kiwi

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    Christchurch Restaurants

    Stopping off at the Sign of the Kiwi on the Dyers Pass section of Summit Road for tea and scones on a misty afternoon was like stepping back in time to the days of the early 20th century when the solid stone teahouse was first built. Then a whole string of resthouses bearing the name "The Sign of ...." were planned for the scenic route but only...

  • Iguacu Restaurant and Bar

    4 out of 5 stars

    Auckland Restaurants

    Iguacu is a nice restaurant and bar in trendy Parnell, one of Aucklands more fashionable areas. The restaurant is quite big, with an outside dining area at the front. We stuck with the bar, which was very indoor/outdoor all at the same time, and very relaxed. Ordering a couple of bar meals to go with our drinks, we expected a bowl of wedges and a...

  • IVY & LOLA's

    4 out of 5 stars

    Queenstown Restaurants

    Great location on the Steamer's Wharf, and if the weather permits, sit outside and take in the views and activities. The menu is wide and something for almost everyone. Coffee is great, an important factor these days! Staff were very friendly and obliging, making my visit an alround great time. Fast service. I was here for breakfast and...

  • Arizona Bar & Grill

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    Wellington Restaurants

    We went to this restaurant when we had planned to have dinner somewhere at the Waterfront around Queen’s Wharf and did not find the restaurants overly exciting, especially the Loaded Hog has a much nicer atmosphere in Christchurch. So we walked back towards Lambton Quay, intenting to take the bus to Courtenay Place – and this restaurant caught our...

  • The Loaded Hog

    4 out of 5 stars

    Christchurch Restaurants

    After looking around the strip and seeing the overpriced breakfasts that were being charged we decided to ask a local where to go. Breakfast prices along the river are more than Auckland. We were told to go to The Loaded Hog. They do bacon and toast and hashbrowns with two eggs cooked however you like for only $7.50. Eggs on toast are $5.00 and...

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Auckland Restaurants

    If you love Chinese dinning as we do, this is one of Auckland's best, with freindly staff and great food at reasonable prices this is not to be missed. We have been here a number of times now and it is always busy, so do not forget to book!! My favourite dish's are sweat 'n' sour pork and the ginger beef and oh the lamb is so yummy and the prawns...

  • Monty's Bar & Restaurant

    Having studied Interior Design, I really appreciated Monty's unique decor. In keeping with the mining history of Queenstown Monty's Pub is decorated using natural materials, and my favorite,a representation of a mine shaft. You can read more about the unique design at the following website: http://www.mountswire.co.nz/feature_1.shtml Monty's Pub is...

  • Matterhorn

    Wellington Restaurants

    As this bar and restaurant (with really good and now award winning food; see update at the bottom) has been described as legendary, iconic, a must-have-been place and Wellington institution in every travel guide for centuries we would not want to miss it on our last Wellington visit. Well, it was not full of the promised chic and important people....

    Christchurch Restaurants

    It is very conveniently located, near the CBD. Oxford Terrace is lined by numerous cafes & restaurants - a good choice of different styles. The atmosphere is great with the river flowing in front, and the restaurant is open till late (unlike some in Cathedral Square). Good selection of wines - we had decided to taste different Kiwi wines during our...

  • Euro Bar

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Auckland Restaurants

    Euro is usually the first place on my list of things to do when returning to Auckland, which isn't often enough. The food and service is consistently excellent, plus the wine list is great (try the 13 pinot noir if they have any left). Lots of places have come and gone since I lived there 8 years ago, but Euro is still the shiznit.

  • Boardwalk Seafood Restaurant & Bar

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Queenstown Restaurants

    Superb! Superb! Superb! This is a great place for seafood meals if you have some dollars to spend. Although the food is superb I think this is topped by the location. From the upstairs floor right on the waterfront you have great views over Lake Wakatipu and the peaks on the opposite side of the lake. In the evening it is even romantic to have...

  • Kaffee Eis

    Wellington Restaurants

    There are several outlets of this coffee house, and although the coffee and the cakes might be delicious I am absolutely not interested in that. It is the gelato that makes my mouth water only by the thought of it. Perhaps you do not know yet that one of the things I miss most in New Zealand is more authentic places with authentic Italian food,...

    Small and cozy with great lake views and a nice open fire, great when you have just come off the mountains skiing in the winter. In the summer lunch in the courtyard. This is a great way to enjoy some excellent Eichardt's hospitality without the expense of staying at the hotel. The food is great and changes regularly, the wine list is very local...

  • Monsoon Poon

    Wellington Restaurants

    Monsoon Poon is a great place to eat in Wellington and is normally very busy. You can always get a table here early in the night and you'll generally have to wait in the bar for a table to come free later in the evening. The menu is pretty good and also has options for allergy sufferers (gluten, dairy & nut) with a special menu indicating dishes...

  • MU Steakhouse

    ... is located in the cordoned-off Red Zone of Christchurch, so has been out of service since the earthquake on 22 February 2011. (Update June 2011) Although MU is a steakhouse and the MU indeed stands for the Moo of cattle and cows it is so much more. First of all, an absolutely lovely place, with a huge bar area in the front part of the...

  • Orbit Restaurant

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Auckland Restaurants

    Orbit is a very classy restaurant. It is right below the top floor of Sky Tower. The restaurant rotates while you eat. It sounds like a cool idea but was actually making my wife and I feel sick. (they can set the movement to various speeds) The food was pretty good and a bit on the pricey side. You also get free admission to the Sky Tower...

  • Pig & Whistle Bar & Restaurant

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    There are no shortage of this style of pubs in NZ, but this one has the added bonus of offering lunch specials of bangers & mash and pea pie pud on the cheap. Food was decent, nice outdoor space. Nice selection of beers. I tried the BLAT which had really fresh avocado & tomato even though it was late fall, but I think the bangers & mash was much...

  • Caffe L'Affare

    Wellington Restaurants

    I've labelled L'Affare as a Coffeehouse as no option for a Cafe. Caffe L'Affare is more than just a coffee place with its really good breakfast and lunch menus as well as great coffee. The place is normally very very busy though service is quick and friendly in the face of lots of suits with Blackberry. Breakfasts include the standard eggs and add...

    Auckland Restaurants

    We ate at the Manuka restaurant on our first evening in New Zealand, and we were very glad to have some fresh vegetables after 2 days spent eating in airports and airplanes! We went for a classic Greek salad and some fresh fruits which is not what you usually eat to test a restaurant, so my opinion is not a complete one. I can say that the...
