Akarua Wines & Kitchen by Artisan
265 Arrowtown-Lake Hayes Road
If it is a good dose of Southern hospitality you are after, a meal at Akarua is just that. Set in the historic ‘Walnut Cottage’ just a few minutes’ drive from Arrowtown, this relaxed eatery is a fantastic spot to stop in for breakfast, lunch or spot of wine tasting. Using only the finest ingredients, sourced from Aotearoa’s top growers, makers and artisan suppliers, the menu is a delicious selection of honest, comforting foods, all carefully matched to the stellar Akarua wines.
Surrounded by a wildflower-laden garden, the cosy setting is a calm spot to park up, blanket-on-knee and pinot-in-hand to while away the hours.
