Dinner at Larnach Castle

Dinner in the Castle

Evening dining is offered in one of the  a Castle dining rooms to guests staying at Larnach Castle. We do not operate a conventional restaurant, but in keeping with the historic setting, we offer a four course 'Trust the chef ' menu served house party style to all guests at one sitting – a chance to meet our other guests.
As dinner is prepared especially for our guests, confirmation of attendance and dietary requirements must be made before 5.00pm on the day you wish to dine.

 The menu reflects traditional New Zealand style cuisine with all meat and vegetables sourced locally. Our cellar carries a selection of New Zealand wines. 


The dinner price is currently $85.00per adult and $30.00per child. Bookings are essential and must be made before 5pm to secure a place at the table

The exception is Christmas day when we serve a traditional Christmas dinner. If you are interested in dining on  Christmas day please email  Trudi McLaren at
