At Hapuku Lodge we love to provide exquisite meals and memorable culinary experiences for our guests. Our menus focus on available local foods and seasonality. All the food served in our dining room is prepared in the Lodge’s kitchen, including our breads, stocks, ice cream, jams, jellies, and even the peanut butter. Our Executive Chef, Fiona, modifies the dinner and breakfast menus daily to take full advantage of the season and assure that the freshest game and seafood available that day is on the plate. 

Each evening we serve a full three-course meal, with three choices per course. Each morning guests are treated to a generous continental breakfast buffet and cooked breakfast menu. Dinner and breakfast is included in the rate for guests staying overnight with us.

Visitors to Kaikoura and local residents are welcome in our dining room. The ever changing three-course menu is $100 per person (+$50 for crayfish). If you are not staying on the property but wish to dine with us please make a reservation. We will be more than happy to accommodate you.

We offer a select menu of New Zealand wines, sourced primarily from small individually owned wineries. The wines of New Zealand are often favorably compared to the wines of the “old world”. We encourage our guests to explore our selection and judge for themselves.

AMAZING FROM START TO FINISH - Cannot speak highly enough about this place. Singularly the best place we’ve stayed in anywhere in the world. The room in the lodge was beautifully decorated and perfectly appointed. There were homemade cookies and a complementary bottle of wine on arrival. The restaurant produces Michelin star quality food which we could have eaten at every night until our money ran out! Seriously go here and you will not be disappointed.
