The Grove

What they say

“At The Grove we are passionate about showcasing the best produce that New Zealand has to offer. We are lucky to live in a country that is as diverse in its produce as its people. We have long-standing relationships with some of the most passionate people, and they are dedicated to supplying the best, tastiest fruits, vegetables, seafood and meats possible. At The Grove we cook with love, care and a respect for that produce, and try to elevate it in a unique manner.”

Signature Dishes

Kingfish crudo: cured fish in lime juice, ginger and garlic, with smoked coconut milk, fresh mandarin and tamarillo; Raukumara wild venison loin cooked on a Japanese barbecue, served with beetroot purée and smoked venison tartare.

What we say

A veritable haven of excellent dining in a city where casual fast food dominates, The Grove has consistently delivered and maintained some of the very best dining for over a decade. From the casual snacks that are offered before the choice of a four or seven course degustation menu, to the brilliant beautifully executed dessert finale you will find every bite of your meal well-thought-out and delicious. The exemplary wine list and accompanying service never fail to disappoint.
