When you are in Oamaru, where do you go for simple and fresh foods? You can savour the local produce at Riverstone Kitchen that is located on the Waitaki Plains about 12 km from Oamaru. Due to the continental climate and rich soils, fruits and vegetables thrive in Oamaru, and some of NZ’s best produce come from this region.
At Riverstone Kitchen, you can dine outside on the huge western deck overlooking a huge and sprawling garden or in front of the open fireplace. You can stroll around the gardens after a meal to soak in the fresh air and captivating landscape.
The foods here are made fresh and the Riverstone Kitchen restaurant tries to use as much as they can from their own backyard garden and from local producers. If you travel to New Zealand, make sure you add in a few restaurants that cook their own, fresh produce, preferably organic.
This is a perfect place for an intimate dinner or private parties including weddings. A private function room is available for meetings and conferences that opens out on the northern courtyard. For families with kids, there is a playroom and lawn for the children, and a parent’s room for the adults.
Menus can be catered specifically to your special needs and requirements for any occasion, or you can select from the Riverstone Kitchen’s simple but stylish house menu for your meals.
This restaurant is daily from 9am to 5pm. Evening dining is available Thurs, Friday and Saturday or by arrangement.
