The Dining Experience
Willowbank provides a unique restaurant dining experience in Christchurch, with wonderful ambience and the unique surroundings of the reserve. You and your family can enjoy sitting in front of the fire in winter while watching deer grazing outside the windows. Our Chefs focus on bringing you the very best of New Zealand cuisine.
Relax and enjoy the cafe, bar and restaurant experience before or after exploring the reserve.
The restaurant/cafe and Bar is open from 10am to 4pm daily or later by arrangement for group bookings.
Our dining facilities are open 364 days. We are closed Christmas Day and on New Year's Eve from 5pm.
By combining New Zealand food, wine, wildlife, service and culture, Willowbank Wildlife Reserve has created a full entertainment experience for visitors to Christchurch with a uniquely New Zealand flavour.
During August 2017 we are refurbishing our restaurant/cafe. During this period there will be limited food options available.
