About Craft Embassy

The Craft Embassy is an award winning bar and restaurant situated on level one of The Terrace at the heart of Christchurch’s hospitality precinct. While our specialty is our thirty taps of independent craft beer, you will be delighted with our exceptional wine list including local, New Zealand and international wines and our extensive menu of outstanding food.

Come and enjoy the superb atmosphere, either inside sitting in our comfortable booths or tables, in the sun on the front terrace overlooking the Avon River, or in our glazed pavilion with its outdoor feel, lunchtime sun and heaters for those cooler winter days and nights.

The Craft Embassy, an exceptional venue with excellent craft beers, great food and an outstanding wine list has been a long time in the making by craft enthusiasts. When faced with the option of signing with one of the beer conglomerates, we chose independence so that we could provide you with an extensive craft range.

Our beer offering changes frequently to reflect the ever-evolving craft beer industry. You will enjoy our wine list which features local, New Zealand and international wines, and will agree that it is one of the best around. Chef has taken the time to craft an enviable menu to match the beer with plenty of vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options and some amazing desserts.

Come and join us and let our friendly staff take care of you.

Delicious fried chicken & calamari. The larb could have been a bit punchier but still tasty & very nice cocktails. Great vibe & service.

The music was a bit too loud for reasonable conversation. However, service was really good and the food great.

I thought the beet salad was a bit light for the price, so was a bit disappointed in that regard. I selected the salad because I ordered the Hot Pot Prawns, but was left feeling hungry. My friend had the burger which looked amazing and I thought that was reasonably priced. The service was great, the atmosphere was great.

Great atmosphere, loved the cosy booths. Our waitress was super friendly and attentive. Loved the range of beers and food was delicious - I'm in love with calamari again after so many bad experiences at other restaurants. Keep up the great work, I will be back to sit on the balcony.

Was VERY ANNOYED when our waiter brought out our food all at the same time just because we had ordered food from the bar snacks, sharing plates and entrees menus, didn't mean we were expecting to receive them all at the same time. This put a huge damper on our experience as everything was going wonderful until we all received 2 plates of food at the same time with little table space to accomodate the food. The place wasn't even that busy so I don't think the kitchen could use that as an excuse.
