Scholars Restaurant and On The Terrace Café

Scholars Restaurant and On The Terrace Café @ Scholars welcome you to join us for our productions in Semester Two 2016.

Our returning level 4 Chef students showcase their skills in a series of A la Carte dinners during August and September. The new intake of Professional Cookery students will run a two week block of Christmas themed Bistro lunches in November.

Our Diploma in Professional Chef Practice and Professional Food and Beverage students will end their year with a fabulous Degustation dinner during November. This year we are changing it up a little and will be offering an eight course European Dinner – a modern kiwi take on classic European dishes with an option to match wines with the menu. This has now been running for four years and has proven to be very popular, with nights sold out weeks in advance. So, get in quick to avoid disappointment.

We will again be part of the Summer FAWC event and are pleased to announce a special offering of the Degustation menu with the theme.

This is a fantastic night where you can meet the students and other like-minded people and enjoy a night of great food, wine and a few surprises. Reservations are through the FAWC ticketing web site

Due to popular demand, we will again run two Quiz Nights mid October with the theme – America in the 70’s. We’ll have great American style food served throughout the night plus prizes for the best dressed team. These are very popular, so start organizing your team – and your costumes – six per team.

On The Terrace Café will be providing counter service lunches Tuesday to Thursday through our Café Service programme. The students will be serving a fabulous selection of café style foods, great espresso coffee and tempting desserts. These items range from $4 – $8. There is no need to book for these lunches unless you have a party of 10 or more people.

We are also offering café style lunches most Fridays in Term 3 only. These are run by our Trades Academy students. These students are still at school, but come to EIT every Friday to study various trade related careers. Please note that these lunches are not licensed.
