“We love the absolute dedication to showing how great wine paired with excellent food creates an experience that’s so much more than the sum of its parts.”
Pegasus Bay Restaurant
Our intention is to give diners a total food and wine experience. We have an emphasis on freshness and simplicity, using predominantly local and home grown ingredients.
The menu celebrates the abundance of gorgeous produce grown in North Canterbury. From the estate we harvest our own figs, olives, a wide variety of stone fruits and herbs, artichokes, red currents, rhubarb, horse radish and cumquat to name but a few. Many edible, wild greens foraged on the property are incorporated into the menu, which changes regularly to showcase seasonal ingredients.
Multiple vintages of each variety of Pegasus Bay wines are available including a large offering of aged wines by the glass. We aim for the service to be polished and attentive while being unpretentious, leaving diners feeling relaxed and at home.
The atmosphere inside the restaurant is warm, with the use of recycled rimu and a large open fire. Contemporary works from some of New Zealand’s leading artists hang on the walls.
There is also an extensive outdoor dining area with breathtaking gardens, a natural amphitheatre and unique wetlands with several lakes.
