The Tasting Shed is an award-winning gem located along State Highway 16. This gourmet restaurant strives to create the ultimate dining experience with their food, service, and ambience. Take note though, you won’t get a set meal here, only an entree-style gastronomic voyage. If you’re looking to give your taste buds an unforgettable experience then this is the place to go.
The dishes were meant to be shared and savoured. The menu is simple. Offering only a taster of what’s in seasonally available and hot around the world, choose plates featuring the sea, the land and the earth. If you’re looking to have a bit of everything, then the sharing platter will take you on a tour of flavours and spices on offer. Working with only the freshest ingredients, the chefs aim to create a kiwi cuisine that is simple yet play with all your senses. Each mouthful is an international-inspired construction with an Asian flare. Vegetarian and gluten-free options are available.
Cleanse your palate with a drink from the bar. Choose from an array of wines and order by the glass. Or sip on a freshly poured beer on tap. If you’re looking for something unique, have a try of the signature cocktails or handcrafted sodas.
The dining backdrop completes the experience. The rustic-chic space is furnished with bits and pieces that are full of character. Feel the atmosphere of the different spaces, from the cosy Living Room to the indoor-outdoor flow of the Grotto or Cabana. Come for a romantic dinner date or a special occasion. The separate areas mean that more private and intimate settings can be arranged should you require it.
