Over the last few years, Christchurch's hospitality industry has rebuilt itself in leaps and bounds, with record numbers of new cafes, restaurants and bars open every month. Some have become established outside of the former CBD, with areas like Lincoln Road, Victoria Street and other suburban locations becoming popular with locals and visitors alike.

As the central city gradually rebuilds, familiar haunts are reappearing, alongside new and vibrant locations. Depending on what you are looking for, from casual takeaways to fine dining, there are plenty of options. Have a look at the list below as a starting point and feel free to ask our staff for recommendations.

The Food and Drink section of our blog also has plenty of ideas, or you might like to check out websites like Neat Places for further suggestions.
