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.
