Christchurch suburban dining

Many bars and restaurants relocated South of Moorhouse (affectionately known as SOMO) to Sydenham after the quakes and it's now a bustling place to catch up throughout the day and night.

Belgian Beer Cafe Torenhof is an old Christchurch favourite. Offering brunch through to dinner with Kiwi/European style dishes matched with imported Belgian beer with a cosy, inviting atmosphere.

Burgers & Beers is the hippest burger bar in town. Serving tasty gourmet burgers and delicious sides, what better way to enjoy than with a beer? Reasonably priced menu catering for vegetarians and gluten free. You can eat in or takeaway, although best to book if it's a big group.
