CBK Craft Bar and Kitchen

Restaurants / Central

Kiwis have always been great hosts, and it’s a tradition we at Craft Bar & Kitchen are determined to keep alive. We take our cue from the famous old Kiwi farmhouse roasts, the respectful treatment of perfect cuts picked up from the butcher, and the lavish desserts Nana always turned out for guests.

We handpick the best of New Zealand craft beers and offer more than 60 different beers in each venue. Our favourites are Good George, Sidecar and Stoke beers, but we offer a changing selection which is determinedly Kiwi as. Of course, we also offer a solid line of wine, cocktails, spirits and non-alcohol options.
If you need some advice on what might go well with your meal, just ask our friendly staff. They specialise in ingenious pairings.

You don’t know what flavour is until you’ve tried a cut of meat which is cold-smoked, then served on a sizzling STONEGRILL™. About 40% of our mains are offered on the 400°C volcanic hot stone grill for you to cook to your liking.
This is a truly unique way of experiencing the best cuts of meat. Searing your cut locks the nutritional and flavoursome juices, ensuring you get a super tender and sensational tasting meal.

The rest of our menu features CBK devotee favourites, such as lamb riblets, bao buns, juicy burgers and the ice-cream-covered skillet cookie.
We always use fresh produce, locally sourced where possible, and showcase seasonal stars throughout our menu.

We hope you’ll remember us as a lively, cozy and unpretentious sanctuary in the city, where the service was brilliant, the food was exceptional and there were dozens of great Kiwi craft beers on offer.
