We had a wonderful meal at Provenir. The service was excellent. I had the beef and my husband had the fish special. The buffalo mozzarella salad was fresh and delicious. The bread and homemade butter was excellent. A perfect meal with a beautiful view!!

We visit Paihia many times each year but this was our first time dining at Provenir. It was a very pleasant experience and exceeded our expectations. Service was excellent and the food was a delight. The combination of both flavors and presentation was first class. Enjoy :)

Very small Latte and breakfast and prices are high end. Good food and coffee but if you are hungry you need to be prepared to buy more than one thing on the menu, A bit disappointing. My food looked very modern with maybe half a tsp cornflakes sprinkled over 5 blueberries and some slices of melon & pineapple with some... More

We had a great relaxing night in the restaurant. It was only a very short walk from central Paihia. We had great views overlooking the ocean. The food was lovely. Will definitely be back next time I'm in Paihia.

High-end restaurant with the best food I could find in Paihia. You can choose between sitting inside or outside with a view of the beach. Book in advance if you want to eat dinner there on big holidays like the New Year - they fill up fast on those days.

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
