If you share a passion for fresh seasonal ingredients sourced locally, you'll find the 'nature to plate' experience at Carrington Restaurant a real treat. Menus focus on food grown on and around the property, creatively showcasing the abundance of fine produce available in New Zealand's Northland.
There is nothing quite like appreciating a really great wine next to the vineyard it was sourced from. Karikari Estate, whose distinctive wines can be tasted over a platter of regional produce in the Estate’s Café, overlooks Carrington Resort with superb views out to the ocean.
New Zealand’s North is a showcase of the country’s world famous produce. With ingredients grown on the estate, scallops from Karikari Beach, oysters from Rangaunu Harbour, local mussels and cheeses, the dining is superb. You can even go fishing with a local captain and bring your best catch back to the resort’s kitchen to prepare for your evening meal.
