Ziff’s Cafe and Bar was developed with a specific restaurant concept in mind: Great atmosphere, excellent service and meals to satisfy the hungriest customer.
Ziffs provides excellent simple cuisine prepared by a professional team, who aim to serve portions that give the WOW-factor at first glance. With many other modern restaurants, a small sculptured serving on a very large plate is common practice, but at Ziff’s our customers appreciate an exceptional flavored meal created by highly skilled Chefs, serving generous dishes that you might remember Mum used to make.
A well-designed, contemporary yet timeless space, Ziff’s caters for diners of all ages, with a focus on the mature and discerning clientele, who can enjoy an evening meal with friends in a relaxed, warm and comfortable environment. Ziff’s caters for everyone.
The menu at Ziffs includes two of the largest steaks that we can purchase, a crispy chicken salad (our most popular meal), seafood chowder (described by many as the best they’ve had) and several Southland-grown venison dishes – the best you will ever taste.
At Ziff’s it’s possible to indulge in a substantial 3-course meal (although this rarely happens due to large portion sizes) and sample some excellent wines followed by superb cognacs/ports.
The Bar is fully stocked with unique wines, popular beers, cognacs, ports plus every conceivable spirit or liqueur you might think of.
Reservations are recommended, as Ziff’s has a seating capacity of 60 patrons at any one time therefore, from time to time, we have to turn people away!

One of Ziff’s Cafe's Favourite Reviews What's This?
The meals are always good and sometimes great!
I always have the pie (always tasty) but last time I had the fillet steak and man it was good!
The place is warm and quiet and I always tell friends about the good food at Ziff’s.
The only point to improve is the service, sometimes the girls seem a little unprepared.
The girl over the phone was very helpful taking our reservation.
The place was very busy but the service was really good with our waitress looking after us all the time. The drinks came very quickly and the food was much better than we could expect specially in such busy day.
My lamb rump was cooked perfectly and so tender, mum had chicken salad and loved too.
We managed to fit desserts and the cheesecake and crumble were the best way to finish a mother’s day lunch.
I had the venison main (cooked med rare and it melted in my mouth). The other-half had the crispy chicken salad that she loved. I didn’t hear any bad feedback from the 60-70 odd people at the dinner and I couldn’t have been more impressed by the staff, service or the food.
Thanks to the manager, “courtesy coach driver”, for getting us home safe too.
keep up the great work!
I truly rate this restaurant as one of the best of ever been to.
I’ll be going back every visit and will definitely recommend it to my collegues.
However our lunch last Sunday was very very average.
The wait staff were clearly not happy to be working on a Sunday morning.
The chicken salad I ordered had 4 extremely small pieces of chicken & an overly generous amount of lettuce and APHIDS.
Needless to say we won’t be returning in a hurry.
I prefer the deck outside for dining since the inside is quite dark & echoes badly so you have to yell across the table to be heard once a few people are seated & talking
my wife had the lamb shanks and says it was really good and had to take a doggy bag cause she couldn’t eat it all ,we were in a table of 10 and not one of us had a bad comment to say about our meals or service
even the staff were very pleasant and professional i would recommend eating here for any occasion we didn’t use the courtesy coach but they did offer it to us
