Spring & Summer (from 15 August 2021)

From 15th August, guests can look forward to breakfast, lunch and dinner menus that celebrate local seasonal produce with clean, fresh flavours in an à la carte menu that changes daily. Cusine designed to be enjoyed while appreciating the stunning panoramic vista and a truly world-class wine menu.

Head Chef, Rogers, says his cuisine is heavily influenced by the landscapes and environs of Central Otago.

“Creating a new menu for each day allows myself and the team the opportunity to utilise seasonal local produce of the highest quality, and to tailor the menus around the individual likes and needs of each guest. I work closely with a number of local purveyors and farmers to source produce that showcases the very best of the region.”

Guests can choose from a variety of dining spaces, including the Library, Dining Room, Remarkables Patio, Courtyard and Lounge, with private dining arranged upon request.
