Scholars Restaurant and On The Terrace Café


Scholars Training Restaurant offers Hawke’s Bay diners a unique restaurant experience. It allows you to not only enjoy memorable and delicious dining but also to participate in the training of our future chefs and front of house staff.

The School of Hospitality staff and students look forward to welcoming you to Scholars’ Restaurant in 2022.

Hospitality has born the brunt of disruptions caused by the pandemic over the past two years, and unfortunately, we have not been immune to this even in our Hospitality training. We have had to cut a number of our productions this year but will still be offering the same excellent food and service provided by our students and again, thank you for your continued support.

Productions listed are all confirmed at the time of print, but due to the unpredictable nature of COVID, these may change depending on both student numbers and COVID settings.

Email is the fastest and most reliable way to contact our customers if there are any changes, so we would prefer all booking to be made through email, so we can easily contact customers if any changes occur.

Unfortunately, our On the Terrace Café will not be operating Semester 1, but we are hopeful it will open again in Semester 2.

It’s great to be slowly coming out of the restrictions of the last couple of years, and we look forward to seeing more of you in Semester 2.

Unfortunately, as a consequence of the pandemic, we are unable to run our popular 10 Course Degustation this year.  We are hopeful it will be back next year, and look forward to you joining us at our other offerings this semester.
