Scenic Plus Dining Experience
Our Scenic Plus dining experience is all about bringing the outside to your table, complementing the views with stunning regional food
A taste of rural New Zealand
Our Scenic Plus experience brings together the views, the stories, and the flavours of our land, and our Scenic Plus Dining menu is a vital part of that journey.
Flavours of our land
Simple, honest, and authentically New Zealand, our Scenic Plus Menu connects the local ingredients seen through your window with simple regional recipes bursting with natural flavour.
While you glide through rural New Zealand enjoying spectacular views, we'll be bringing those honest flavours to your table. From breakfast pastries and freshly squeezed orange juice, to delicately seasoned lamb and chicken. We'll also be serving a selection of local cheeses, canapes, and sweet treats throughout the day.
So rather than travelling alongside the scenery, join us on an immersive journey through New Zealand that you will savour now and forever.

Coastal Pacific Scenic Plus Menu
Our Coastal Pacific Scenic Plus menu is inspired by the farmlands and waters you see from your window. The pictures above are representative, taken from the TranzAlpine menu. We will be experimenting with new recipes aboard the Coastal Pacific train when it returns on Tuesday 13th October 2020 and we will have updated images to share later that week.
However, our provisional menus are as follows:
