Lockdown in Christchurch

We also know how much the hospitality sector hurts during Covid lockdowns so when Level 3 restrictions kicked in we decided to do what we would do at home, buy at least two or three click & collect meals each week from a restaurant, café or takeaway place in Christchurch to support the sector. I hope you’re doing the same in Nelson.

Street Food on Washington

chef Ben Smith and his wife Bridget have since taken over the old store in Washington Valley and set about turning it into a real community food spot; Street Food on Washington is a lot more than just a place for quick takeaways at lunchtime, but you can do that too if you want to.

Salvito’s Pizza Bar

When John Esposito opened a pizza bar named after his two sons (Salvi and Vito) he was determined to bring authentic Italian flavours that reflect his family’s heritage and he has done exactly that with spectacular success. The pizzas at Salvito’s are wonderful.

Moutere Hills Wines and Forsters

Located in Eggers Road, behind the Upper Moutere village, what was Moutere Hills winery and restaurant has been transformed over the last few of years into Forsters at Moutere Hills, a beautiful dining location where you can sit outside on a sunny day or be wrapped up inside on a colder winter’s day.
