The search for New Zealand's top restaurants

Excelllence An award you can taste-2017.png

We’re on the hunt for the best restaurants in New Zealand and we reckon you might be able to help us…

Have you tried the best steak of your life recently or been wowed by the service you’ve received. Or perhaps, you can’t go past a local favourite when it comes to dining out? Whichever it is, let us know by emailing as we’re about to start assessing restaurants across the nation for the 2019 Beef and Lamb Excellence Awards.

We’re sending our culinary trained assessors to all corners of New Zealand to scout out those restaurants who only serve the best beef and lamb and those chefs who are creating innovation and inspiring cutting-edge cuisine. If they make the cut, we’ll award them with the 2019 Beef and Lamb Excellence Award and a gold plate so all Kiwis know where they can expect the best beef and lamb meals.

And, next time you’re frequenting your favourite restaurant, check the walls for a gold plate — a sign they’ve been awarded with the Beef and Lamb Excellence Award — you never know they may already be on our list. Click here for the 2018 Award holders.
