“Amazing food, atmosphere, service!!”
Review of The Dishery

The Dishery
Ranked #17 of 31 Restaurants in Arrowtown
Price range: US$3 - US$20
Description: Situated next to the Arrow River Reserve, The Dishery is the perfect restaurant to take in the natural beauty of Arrowtown while enjoying locally sourced, sustainable & seasonal fresh food, cocktails and wine. Garden and indoor seating located in a tastefully designed new building adjacent to the historic Dudley's Cottage. We serve an all day menu for breakfast, brunch and lunch. Our food is contemporary and fresh. We use the original wood pellet grill - the Traegar grill - for slow cooking our beef and chicken dishes. This form of cooking enhances the natural flavours and gives a wonderfully tender result, adding another dimension to our restaurant menu. Our produce is sourced locally from throughout New Zealand. Every supplier we work with is carefully chosen for their dedication to their craft and the produce they supply, our suppliers are a community of like-minded people who support our commitment to quality and the very best of seasonal produce.

My wife and I had a wonderful Lunch. I am happy to give a 5-star recommendation for a wonderful dining experience. Nice ambience and clean restaurant. We had Lemon & Thyme Chicken, Cauliflower fritters, Makikihi Chunky fries and smoothies and trust me everything was awesome. Flavours are wonderfully put together, superbly cooked and presented beautifully. Cannot find better quality of service. Every staff member is interested in one thing “their customers”. This is rare in my experience. They definitely lived up to the hype, and their continuous high rankings and reviews. If you haven’t been to eat here, you’re missing out on the best experience! Highly recommend

The staff were very welcoming and helpful. They are all dog lovers and there is an area for dogs to be tied up or left to roam.
It was a cold day and a welcome heater was provided as the sun went behind the hill. The food was excellent and provided quickly. The burger and steak sandwich were filling and tasty as was the children's menu fish and chips. We had a very pleasant lunch and the staff were happy to chat. Would definitely return.

Always busy, but staff are super responsive. Fresh food, good wine, affordable and everybody plus their dog eats there. What else to say?

Stopped for a coffee and scone - the place is light and bright and the staff and service was great. It was popular and busy - we didn't eat off the menu but the food certainly looked good
