There are many reasons why Christchurch Restaurants have a reputation for being some of the best in the world. It could be the Canterbury Lamb, or maybe the Kaikoura Crayfish but many would argue that it’s the unbeatable freshness of locally sourced produce. Whatever the reason, dining in Christchurch is an unmissable experience.
If your taste buds are yearning for something exotic, the selection of international restaurants in Christchurch will leave you spoilt for choice! There are the expected favourites: Thai, Indian, Chinese and Japanese (including many award winning sushi restaurants), but you could also sample some Mexican food (Mexican Cafe, La Bamba Restaurant), or even an Italian menu.
The Little Saigon is a vietnamese restaurant that’s rated highly for its tasty food and cheap prices. It is also BYO which is great if you have a fav bottle that you want to enjoy with your meal.
If you feel like something different you could try one of the Theatre Restaurants. They offer a fusion of great food, and fantastic entertainment. Christchurch City has a variety of these venues each with a unique atmosphere. The Octagon at Trinity Restaurant is housed in a restored church and has great music and old fashioned service, while Twiggers Restaurant offers the South Island’s only regular live cabaret event, coupled with a great buffet menu.
Some of the best restaurants in Christchurch (possibly even in New Zealand!) are a short walk from the centre of town. But there are also some top restaurants situated outside the city centre. Whether it’s the view or the specialist cuisine these places are worth the journey.
So whether you want a fine dining experience, a romantic dessert for two or great meal the whole family can enjoy you will find these, and everything in between, in Christchurch, NZ.
