Currently located in both Queenstown and Auckland, the Botswana Butchery restaurants offer sumptuous menus full of flavour and are consistently rated by visitors and locals as highly successful and popular restaurants. The reason why is three-fold – food, fit-out and service. With the emphasis on fun, innovative dining, Botswana Butchery’s diverse menu is all about flavour and has a strong focus on fine cut meats and locally sourced foods. There are à la carte options to suit every palate and set menus available for groups of eight or more. Our restaurant combines the wonderful produce, wine and location elements of Auckland with the best of what Central Otago can offer.
