King of Snake

King of Snake holds a place in many a Cantabrian heart, with incredible food, fantastic dining experience, and now the views to match in its new location on The Terrace.

This is one of the city’s most luxurious restaurants, serving perfectly plated dishes carefully constructed from premium ingredients. Each item on the menu is a balance of flavours inspired by Asian and European cuisines, and brought together in a way that is distinctly ‘King of Snake’.

The cocktails are also out of this world, with the range of classics superseded only by King of Snake’s house specialities. Wine and beer to complement your meal? You’ll find the beverage offering to be absolutely stellar. And if you want to follow up your meal with a drink in a relaxed setting, head out back to Monarch Bar, a one-of-a-kind Hi-Fi listening bar.

Every aspect of King of Snake is designed and carefully selected, with items of décor sourced from historic buildings around the world and from skilled artisans. The seated balcony looks out over the Ōtākaro Avon River and Bridge of Remembrance, and floor-to-ceiling windows give diners a bird’s eye view for people-watching up the walking street. The marble and herringbone timber floors are staged at two heights to offer views to those further back in the restaurant.

Contemporary and sophisticated, this is the restaurant to be in for an incredible start-to-finish experience.
