Steak Seafood International Bar and Bistro New Zealand
Rita is an intimate restaurant nestled within a historic Aro Valley cottage.  The an ever-changing three course set menu is inspired by the season and our mood.

Before you are seated at your table, you won't know exactly what you'll be eating, but it will be thoughtful, local, seasonal and delicious.   Surprise is an important element of the Rita experience 

Rita offers two staggered sittings, the first from 5.30pm and the second from 7.45pm.  Diners in the first sitting will be allocated their table for two hours.  As the restaurant is small, they can only take groups of up to six guests.

Bookings are recommended. Please check if there are any spare seating by calling before 5.30pm.

Opening Hours:

Tuesday - Saturday:  From 5.30pm
