This option takes away the hassle of the preparation but leaves you to enjoy a catered meal with minimal input from you but without having to have a chef on-site

Enjoy the ultimate dining experience in your private accommodation with a menu tailored just for you and prepared by our personal Chef. Caitlin has worked as a chef/caterer for the last 17 years in New Zealand and Canada, where a love of seasonal locally sourced food has led her passion to create with what is around her and support local growers in doing so.

Whangarei Heads offers a veritable bounty of produce, grass-fed meat, seafood and wild food to tantalize the palate.

It is Caitlin’s delight to share this with you and she will look forward to creating a dining experience that you won’t forget.

NZ $450 for a 3 course dinner for two people (add $50 per extra person).

Please enquire for larger groups. Buffet lunch menu available.

If you enjoy New Zealand wine, as an additional service we would like to assist you in organising your wine purchase prior to your arrival at Ara Roa.

Ara Roa recommends Foxes Island Wines.

John Belsham founded Foxes Island in 1992 to focus on exquisitely made, regionally expressive wines; exactly what he had learned to do in France. 24 years on, Belsham’s passion for producing exceptional wines has yet to wane.

Foxes Island Wines are exclusive, exquisite and limited in production. Genuinely handcrafted and you will not find these wines in the supermarket or wine shops.

We highly recommend all of their wines, the top line Pinot Noirs are sublime. Also, if you like a dessert wine the Icon Noble Riesling is very special.

We would recommend getting a case of 6 bottles to take with you on your trip. Please click the button below to visit their online shop.
