As well as the exquisite food, wine, cocktails and stunning view at Sidart in Three Lamps, Ponsonby – there are now even more reasons to dine there. Globally recognised, Sidart has undergone a lavish refurbishment and expansion, completed just in time for the celebration season.

A second dining area has been created, the Alhambra Room, for 20+ diners, including an intimate bar, and the new marble-top chef’s working area in the original dining room makes the Chef’s Table dining experiences and the Tuesday Test Kitchen events even more exciting, up close and personal. The famous seven course Discovery Menu is also available Wednesday to Saturday. Chef/owner Sid Sahrawat is widely regarded and recognised as one of New Zealand’s most talented and innovative chefs since opening the fine-dining restaurant seven years ago with his wife Chand. Rating globally too, Sidart was recently voted the 792nd best restaurant on the World’s 1000 Best Restaurants list by French-based La Liste.
