Description: Dux Dine is a reflection of the past but a move into the future. A contemporary feeling, with fresh local seafood and vegetarian delights, Dux Dine has plenty to offer. Our delicious New Zealand wines and Dux craft beers are certainly a crowd pleaser. Dux Dine is situated in a historic turn-of-the-century Villa that was originally the Station Masters House for the Riccarton Railway. The villa has been extensively but sympathetically reworked to provide a variety of spaces to be enjoyed whether it be an intimate candlelit dinner for two, a large group celebration at one of the huge Kauri tables, grabbing a morning coffee at the breakfast bar, enjoyi Dux Dine has many reminiscences of the iconic Dux de Lux yet new and fresh while remaining comfortably familiar. Many of the old favourites can be seen on the menu as well as exciting fresh new foods and ideas. Dux Dine offers many setting options, from relaxing in a lounge, formal table setting to sitting in our sun drenched court yard. Whether it be a small group, special lunch or dinner, corporate event, product launch or company celebration we can cater for your needs. As a company we are passionate about supporting the local businesses around us. The seafood served in the restaurant is frequently sourced from Akaroa, Stuart Island and the West and East Coast including Southern Glory Oysters. With the ever changing environment, Dux Dine is pleased to say that we are environmentally friendly. Coffee cups, take away containers, and menus are all recycled.

My first time at Dux Dine visiting from the UK. From start to finish this was a wonderful dining experience. Warm welcome, comfy seating & drinks arrived very quickly. The food was exceptional along with the service. Fantastic value, highly recommended.

I don't like writing reviews after all who the hell am I to judge. Was here for lunch on Tuesday. 7 of us. No one offered us water when we sat down. We had to ask for water. Food took its time coming out. I had baked fish. When the plates were collected I said to the waiting staff, I found fish scales on my plate. No sorry no nothing. Nice setting but most likely not to return.

Hello Artikaran
Thank you for posting you review. I am disappointed to read our service obviously let us down on this occasion and have called a meeting to discuss this matter with urgency regarding some of the obviously simple things.
I do hope you might venture back some time and that our service has improved.
Best regards

Very comfortable to dine alone at Dux Dine. Great menu and the vegetable side is generous and delicious.
