This restaurant was fantastic. We were there a little early, coming from a Kawakawa massage at the adjoining spa. The hostess/server let us know they weren't open (we were aware of the opening time of 6 PM), and offered to bring us a drink at...More

This is a long overdue review - now back from our NZ trip last month I realise I missed reviewing this high end restaurant. Firstly, you dine in a sort of glass house with views of the sea. The menu is small but but the...More

Provenir is effectively a hotel restaurant aiming higher but still struggling with the concept. It has a decent location - nice ocean views in what is effectively a glass house on a hotel forecourt alongside the pool a little out of town, and beyond walking...More

Provenir is a modern local restaurant with a seasonally driven menu. The centre of the restaurant is the kitchen where ingredient quality is non-negotiable. Provenir emphasises the age old formula of simple ingredients cooked well, freshness with a sense of energy, a little bit theatrical, true to life with quality and a story. Hand made, artisanal, from farm to chef. We know our farmers, fisherman, wine makers & growers; from Rod McDonald with his Quarter Acre stunning Syrah, to Bill French who raises our Perendale Lamb, they are just a few of our team. Head Chef - Marcus Berndt
