Five-star steak in Canterbury at Braided Rivers!

From backpackers to billionaires, all holidaymakers have one thing in common. At the end of a day traveling, nothing sounds better than a five star steak!

Travellers to New Zealand are in luck. With a little inside information, they can make their way to the home of the South Island’s best-kept steak secret.

In the true heart of Canterbury, where ocean meets Alps, and hospitality is home-grown, there is no better place to experience local culture and world-class cuisine than Braided Rivers restaurant and bar.

Braided Rivers boasts the only Montague Steakhouse broiler in the entire South Island, imported from America and known around the world for creating steak perfection.

The Wakanui fillets are grain fed and well known for the depth of flavour and delicious, juicy texture.

The broiler delivers a one-off combination of infrared and radiant heat, creating extreme temperatures. This creates a crust on the steak, sealing in all the natural juices for the ultimate quality meat. Described as the ‘gold standard’ in the steakhouse business, the Braided Rivers broiler is only the second to be introduced in all of New Zealand.

The décor at Braided Rivers is warm and chic, with plush carpets, wooden furniture and a coy courtyard. Start the evening with a relaxed drink at the bar, slip away for a steak, shoulder of lamb or whitebait dinner with friends, and enjoy the rugby later on the big screen – all without changing venues!

Braided Rivers is one of the best places in the South Island to enjoy an authentic Kiwi dining experience – fresh, local produce, served by one of Christchurch’s legendary chefs and topped off with a large helping of friendliness and fun.
