Decadent DINNER at Treetops Lodge

Dinner is when you truly experience the exceptional culinary differences of staying at Treetops. Every night, our chefs showcase Treetops core concept of Estate to Plate dining, presenting you nightly with unforgettable culinary events based on provenance that’s truly right at your feet.

Every morning our Executive Chef sources the best organically-grown vegetables, fruits and herbs from the kitchen garden and meets with our resident gamekeeper to select seasonal game and fish; to these are added our unique, freshly gathered native herbs and flavorings from the surrounding wilderness. By late morning Chef is at his desk, crafting dishes to the preferred tastes of that night’s guests. The menus are European contemporary, using simple techniques to bring out clear, fresh flavours that change with the seasons.

Hosted pre-dinner aperitifs and canapés are complimentary in our Great Room, so you can meet other guests and share your adventures and plans for the next day. Then join them in the beautiful Dining Room or dine more intimately, perhaps by candle and firelight in the Library or another spot you have made a personal favourite.

Estate to Plate dinners are a four-course menu with delicious choices or a degustation menu, carefully crafted by our Executive Chef and his team to combine the finest and freshest seasonal flavours. We’ll assist you to match these dishes with outstanding wines from our exceptional cellar that includes the best vintages from New Zealand’s famed wine estates. In fact, you are welcome to explore the cellar and make your choice first hand.

On special occasions you might choose to share the warm companionship of our rather famous Chef’s Table.

The Treetops team achieves the right balance of being attentive and genuine yet relaxed and warm, with understated service. We suggest dress is smart casual for dinner, gentlemen a jacket, no tie.
