The staff were extremely professional but also had a great sense of humour. It was the icing on the cake. The entrees and mains were well presented and were all a good size. In fact I had no room for dessert which was the only disappointment of the night as they looked divine. It is a true fine dining experience... More

We had a meal here based on the strength of the previous reviews. My partner is a real foodie and has dined all over the world and rates this as the best if not THE best dining experience she has ever had. Fine dining is pretty must wasted on me as I have a much less sophisticated palate, but I... More

We had been meaning to try Provenir for ages then a 'Grab One' offer came up and we grabbed it! We had a lovely evening, the food was first class, delicious, beautifully presented and service faultless. We will definitely return and have since recommended Provenir to many friends. A great place for a special occasion or just to treat yourself!

This will be the shortest review I have ever written. Again Marcus and his team delivered some of the best tasting and well presented food to our table of 4; which included a couple who had just returned from a world cruise on the Queen Victoria. They were gob-smacked as we were (again). I only wish they would return to... More

I don't see the point in re writing a review if the establishment is consistent...but I enjoyed my meal so much that I can't help myself, I just have to say if you haven't been to Provenir you have to go!! The new winter Menu is delicious and as always the service and wines were top notch. We are so... More

We booked here based on TripAdvisor reviews. Even with the great reviews it surpassed our expectations. The food, the service and the wine were all amazing. It was by far the best meal we had while in New Zealand. I think visiting Paihia and missing this place would be a shame.

Description
Provenir is a modern local restaurant with a seasonally driven menu. The centre of the restaurant is the kitchen where ingredient quality is non-negotiable.

Provenir emphasises the age old formula of simple ingredients cooked well, freshness with a sense of energy, a little bit theatrical, true to life with quality and a story.

Hand made, artisanal, from farm to chef. We know our farmers, fisherman, wine makers & growers; from Rod McDonald with his Quarter Acre stunning Syrah, to Bill French who raises our Perendale Lamb, they are just a few of our team.

Head Chef - Marcus Berndt
