Ivy & Lola's Kitchen + Bar


Ratings and reviews

Certificate of Excellence2015 - 2018 Winner

Location and contact

Locally owned and operated Ivy & Lola’s is named after the owners’ two daughters and offers a warm, friendly and family atmosphere. Open from brunch until late you can expect hearty healthy New Zealand fare sourced from fresh local ingredients. Try the locals’ favourite the three hour slow-roasted rib eye, or the Cecil Peak lamb. Or why not enjoy an afternoon aperitif with one of Ivy and Lola’s famous Mussel Pots served with garlic sourdough toast? This is the perfect spot for a family gathering, a casual meal or to meet a gang of friends for a drink and a nibble. Sit outside and soak up the sunshine with a spectacular view of The Remarkables or savour a Pinot Noir in the funky Art Deco interior

After 3 weeks of travelling around NZ, this was the best meal we had. The food was cooked to perfection, tasted superb, and the service was spot on (smiley and friendly, but not in an over the top way) Living in London we eat in...More

We made a booking inside and were seated at the coziest corner. Jerome and Co made sure everything including the warmed VSOP was perfect. The venison and lamb dishes were wonderful and prepared as we requested. I thought the portions were quite large. Yummy deserts....More

I popped in for a dinner. I was not very hungry and they had a small portion of mussels that I choose. The mussels were in a green curry sauce. The food came very fast which made me suspicious. The mussels were not even lukewarm....More
