Beach-side in Sumner: Beach Sumner

Rumour has it that Christchurch is in for a hot, dry summer, thanks to the El Niño weather pattern.

That’s welcome news after a dull, overcast, and wet spring. Cantabrians will definitely want to get outdoors and there is little that speaks of summer more than a visit to a seaside restaurant. Enjoy a drink overlooking the water, or a delicious evening meal, as the sun goes down over the sea, leaving its fingers of pink on the majestic Southern Alps.

Beach Bar on the Esplanade at Sumner offers just that idyllic setting and atmosphere. This is a delightful destination that has been popular with both locals and visitors for many years. It’s open seven days a week for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and its huge sheltered deck is the ideal place to socialise with family and friends, and to enjoy the beauty of nature.

Such a magical environment deserves food prepared with equally exceptional care and attention. Beach Bar’s menu has an international flavour, with a focus on fresh seafood. There are the classics you would expect for breakfast and lunch – smashed avo and heirloom tomatoes, or seafood chowder, and tempura fish and chips. There’s also the unexpected – seared scallops, or sticky Szechuan eggplant. At dinner the chefs pull out all the stops with lamb shoulder, salmon, or grouper, presented with interesting and tempting vegetables and sauces.

Gift cards are available to buy online, and you can follow the restaurant on Facebook for the latest updates.
