Marina Restaurant

The Marina Restaurant is run by French chef, Stephane Dussau and his partner, Caroline Philp.

Everything is freshly cooked on the premises by their experienced international team, using locally produced seasonal ingredients as far as possible. They work together to deliver great modern French cuisine, and the best dining experience. Come and enjoy the warm, friendly and attentive service of Caroline and her team. They can advise you on the menu choices, and also matching wines from their extensive cellar of New Zealand, French and Australian wines. Set in the elegant historic Lysnar Ballroom, relax by the fire in winter, or, on the deck by the picturesque three rivers in summer, for a memorable evening at affordable prices. The Marina is a popular choice for wedding, functions and special celebrations.

The restaurant offers a Fine Dining à la carte menu at night from Tuesday to Saturday and a Bistro menu for lunch from Thursday to Saturday. If you wish to 'Eat In" and enjoy a delicious meal, prepared specially by the Marina chefs, ready to reheat at your convenience, please consult your Motel desk for menu and prices.
