DINING EXPERIENCE

 

We create our ever changing menu to revolve around a respect for seasonality and to reflect the best produce available from around New Zealand.
The intimate relationships we have developed with local producers and growers over the last 10 years means
Lillius’ menu is an ever-evolving journey, and always a complete experience.

There’ll always be new and exciting ingredients
you’ve never heard of or tasted before, so trust us to find a way to let enjoy these wonderful ingredients.

Select either a three-course option where you can pick each plate, or leave it to us 
to take you on a five-course culinary adventure.
