Chantellinis provided us with a superb dinner experience, arguably one of the best on our three weeks tour through New Zealand. A great menu providing a wide choice of fish and meat dishes, each a work of art in itself. Truly the work of a top-line chef! The wine-list offers a wide variety of first class wines both from the country and abroad. A memorable evening that was worth every panny it cost.

We highly recommend Chantellini's for their excellent meals and superlative service. We had the Angus Beef and Blue Cod dishes and both were cooked to perfection. The dessert was delicious and the wine was the perfect choice for the meal. The setting was very welcoming and the service was professional and friendly.
