AKARUA WINES & KITCHEN BY ARTISAN
Akarua Wines and the team from Artisan share similar principles….put simply to deliver the best wine and food experience to our customers that we can.
Wine is made in the vineyard and Akarua’s belief is that our land plays an integral part in producing the premium Central Otago wines that we bring to market each year. Likewise Artisan views the ingredients as the key to delivering food that is their signature.
A passion for hand crafted cuisine that’s made from scratch is a philosophy that makes the Artisan kitchen tick, using some of New Zealand’s finest sustainable ingredients sourced in and around the four coasts of our South Island.
The food coming from our kitchen is honest, comforting and social with a focus on quality, taste and seasonality helped from Central Otago’s local growers. Our food matched carefully with the purity of Akarua wines combine to create a memorable dining experience.
Enjoy the beautiful garden setting and the historic cottage which we have lovingly restored – whether it’s for a coffee and breakfast or for a shared lunch over wine with friends, we look forward to welcoming you soon.

Wow just Wow!!
The best breakfast we have ever had! It was amazing! I had the waffles and they are to die for. Cooked to perfection and so much flavor. 100% recommend to everyone I know. The wait staff were lovely and friendly. And the outdoor seating environment was so beautiful! We will be back again.
Fantastic Lunch and Atmosphere
As part of our tour our guide suggested this restaurant for lunch, and are we glad she did. It is a beautiful little building with a great vibe, good service and fantastic, creative food. My wife and shared several dishes to taste and everything was delicious. Who knew there was such a thing as chorizo jelly but I want more. We’re still not sure what type of fish we had, we just know it was great and we’d order it again. This is a place I would highly recommend.
Can Not Fault This Place!
One of the best places to eat in Queenstown, breakfast lunch or dinner. Just recently had my 21st lunch there for 22 people. Every single person was catered to without a problem, the food was divine, service was incredible and could not fault this place.
