We had the 3-course Chef's Menu and everything was delicious! The food and flavour combinations were spot on and the service was excellent. If you're thinking about trying it, do.

WOW!!! what an experience, absolutely delicious food and service. Will most definitely go back and experience this again. Food was great, with flavors I would have never put together, but that is probably why I am not a great Chef or a chef at all. Thanks Culprit for making this a remarkable evening

Culprit just keeps on delivering time after time. Quirky twists and fun flavour pairings - salt n vinegar brussels sprouts anyone?! Wonderful food, relaxed and friendly but professional service just makes us want to keep coming back..

Culprit does not disappoint. The food embraces kiwi culture with some lovely unexpected twists from the kitchen thrown in. Thoroughly recommend the Kai Moana platter and the wine pairing as add ons. We will definitely be returning.
