Tongue-and-groove-lined Hopgood’s is perfect for a romantic dinner or holiday treat. The food is decadent and skilfully prepared but unfussy, allowing quality local ingredients to shine. Try the duck breast with chestnut polenta or the lamb rump with a mint and caper dressing. The five-course tasting menu ($95) affords the full Hopgood's experience. Desirable, predominantly Kiwi wine list. Bookings advisable.
