Lighter and easier to eat and prepare, lunch menu differs from that of dinner generally served between 6 and 10pm. Eel being the staple dish for the Maori, these natives continue fishing for it despite major demographic changes caused by industrialization.

The leading wine-producing regions are Marlborough, Hawke’s Bay and Gisborne. Taste it all during the luxury charter vacation of your dreams in the terrestrial paradise of New Zealand.
