Wow your guests with fabulous food at your next event! Let our resident Executive Chef develop for your function the perfect menu or bring in your own venue catering service. 


We make it deliciously easy...



From a simple morning tea to exuberant gala dinner, our experienced preferred caterer would love to work with you on your own bespoke menu or selections from existing seasonal menus.


Delicious food need not break the bank. By using seasonal and local produce, we keep catering costs down and work with our clients to deliver a quality dining experience within budget.


We can work with you to design the bar service your event requires from bar tabs, tokens, subsidies and cash/eftpos bars.



Our Culture

We are a family of foodies who are constantly on the hunt for new tastes and experiences.

Style and innovation are the cornerstones of what we do, and our talented team are experts at elevating every occasion into something truly exquisite.

We believe that fresh, unrivalled-quality ingredients are at the foundation of all our events and we’re proud to source from the best in the business to bring colourful, irresistible food to your table.

We care about animals and their wellbeing too! Which is why we only use free range chicken and eggs and source sustainable seafoods through Moana New Zealand whose unique long term kaitiakitanga is important to us. We always use 100% New Zealand meats sourced from the highest quality responsible suppliers.

Through hard work and a shared vision and love for food and experiences, we continue to grow and go from strength to strength.
