Sid At The French Cafe

Owned by Sid and Chand Sahrawat, the 35 seater restaurant serves contemporary New Zealand cuisine in an elegant yet relaxed fine dining setting, offering a 5 course tasting menu.

The open plan kitchen and dining area boasts glass doors overlooking a gorgeous courtyard reminiscent of an old French quarter, complete with a fireplace and herb garden.

Owner and executive chef Sid Sahrawat overseees the innovation in the kitchen alongside head chef Tommy Hope and they are supported by a talented team of hospitality professionals led by Alex Shchepetkin. Rob Chacon curates the bar menu and bespoke cocktail list.
