The Courtyard Restaurant and Garden Bar has been impressing locals and has fast become the secret local "place to be" for an exceptional dinner or a spritz or two in the sunny garden bar.
Situated on Ocean View road, down the stairs from the viewing platform in central Oneroa, the venue is a little tucked away but a delightful discovery.
With a large Mediterranean influence, the extensive menu boasts house made pastas, cheese and charcuterrie plates, fresh seafood dishes, and some interesting twists to some international dishes, like the cauliflower rice nasi goreng, and the poke bowl. Don't go past the classics like the TCY cheese burger, and NZ Ribeye steak, hung and air dried for 30 days.
The wine list is curated by Simon Kelly from Lubrication Wines who says "We picked the wine list to compliment The Courtyard's unique style. It's a little daring and adventurous, and features some of the world’s best vineyards. We hope it will challenge diners to try something new".
The menu changes weekly and adds seasonal specials, to ensure the local regulars always have someone new to try, and to keep the team on their creative toes. The recent addition of a cabana bar will be serving up local craft beer and spritz’ in the courtyard throughout the summer.
