We wanted to bring the highest quality dining experience in a vibrant environment to Christchurch and we think we’ve done a pretty good job. Our specialty is dry aged meat which we do in-house and then finished on a charcoal oven roaring at 450 degree Celsius. This creates a unique flavor and when combined with world class New Zealand produce and a selection of wines from around the globe delivers a destination for those special occasions. Our menu showcases top graded cuts of meat from nose to tail. We have something here for you if you want to try the best cuts of Canterbury meat as well as some more adventurous cuts if you want to try something different. Let Bessie create you an experience to remember.
