Nestled inside inner city luxury hotel, The George, 50Bistro is an elegant restaurant with an effortlessly charming atmosphere. Serving quality fare from dawn til dusk, the kitchen and front of house team here work hard to ensure a pleasurable experience at any time of the day.

Don’t shy away if you are not intending to stay at the hotel, non-guests are welcomed to 50Bistro with open arms. On the other hand, why not take advantage of what the hotel has to offer and enjoy a day of indulgence with a spa, followed by high tea, lunch or dinner with a group of friends.

The menu here is very much influenced by the seasons and uses local produce as much as possible. Ideally, executive chef Antony Page sources his products for the kitchen from within a fifty-kilometre radius - not only as a point of difference, but to support small local suppliers of quality produce.

With nine years of Beef and Lamb Excellence winnings under the belt, it goes without saying that these are the signature dishes here. Try the Leelands roasted lamb served with beetroot hummus, beetroot textures, feta and olives; or the Wakanui eye fillet complimented with hand-cut fries, wilted spinach, béarnaise and jus. Be wowed. Take a seat out in the generous conservatory complete with a living wall and fire-tables, or sit along the large windows overlooking the ever-changing beauty of Hagley Park. This is the best spot in town for a pre-theatre meal, at the bistro’s Dining at Dusk.

Whether you’re coming in for a business lunch, a get-together with friends or an outing with Grandma, expect a friendly welcome followed by attentive service and good quality, consistent food within a sophisticated atmosphere.
