About Plateau

We at Plateau love three things: people, food, and craft beer.

The owners wanted to create a place where community could be built - locals and visitors alike - and where else to build community and savour friendship but around the table? So, with people, food and good beer in mind, Plateau's doors opened, and our focus hasn't changed. In fact, Plateau's story keeps changing to make sure people can enjoy their relationships around the best food and drink New Zealand has to offer.

Authentic New Zealand Experience

We pride ourselves in being a ‘locals’ place, where people from our community gather to socialise or conduct business. Out of town visitors who use Plateau as a meeting point often describe us as providing provincial town warmth with a city-like flair.

Versatile Atmosphere

Plateau Bar + Eatery offers an a la carte restaurant with full service, a more relaxed  area with a cosy fireside, an outside courtyard area and a private room perfect for private dining, groups, business meetings and small conferences. The overall design creates many spaces for privacy, as well as the opportunity to be part of the group.

Stylish Setting

The décor at Plateau Bar + Eatery embraces local and organic materials from New Zealand and the Central Plateau; including copper fittings, leather, dark wood and pumice. Earthy colours, stone, wood and fabric create a contemporary space, with and air of warmness & cutting edge design, delivering a timeless feel.

Superior Service

In the restaurant and bar, our staff create an atmosphere that is comfortable and relaxing. The close knit team excels in providing professional service and know our product as well as the owners. In short, outstanding customer service is the essence of Plateau Bar + Eatery. A smile or warm greeting are as much our product as are a perfectly cooked scotch fillet or expertly mixed cocktail.
