New Zealanders have always been great hosts, and it’s a tradition Craft Bar & Kitchen (CBK) is determined to keep alive.
CBK takes its 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.
Home of 60 beers
CBK hand-picks the best of New Zealand craft beers, offering more than 60 options. Favourites are Good George, Sidecar and Stoke beers, but the changing selection is determinedly Kiwi-as. Of course, they 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 the friendly staff, they specialise in ingenious pairings.
That STONEGRILL™ flavour
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 CBK's 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 the menu features CBK devotee favourites, such as lamb riblets, bao buns, juicy burgers and the ice-cream-covered skillet cookie.
Fresh produce, locally sourced where possible, showcase the seasonal stars throughout the menu, and the lively, cozy and unpretentious setting provides a tasty retreat within the city.
