Our restaurant is situated in The Oxford Building which is a listed 1925 Historic Places Trust gem, in the old heart of Timaru. We have set up a bistro style menu with a European influence - It’s the kind of food that makes you want to wipe the plate with a chunk of crusty bread to savour every drop.


Our place is situated in The Oxford Building, it has embossed 15 foot ceilings on all four floors which was the inspiration behind our branding. Our place has three main areas. The bar, where you can have a glass of good wine or a craft beer on tap. The brasserie, a place where your still part of the buzz, and the dining room, for those who what to focus on their company and the food or have a large group celebrating. "The ambience is one that hums, its warm yet confident and that is what we are all about." The Food Its all about keeping it simple. We don’t want to mess to much with the quality ingredients we have sourced, so why should we? We have set up a bistro style menu with a European influence. Rustic bold flavours that marry perfectly together.
