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.

Only rated service down as there needed to be more staff on. We had to wait so long for drinks because there was only one bartender on - a huge missed opportunity as we’d have bought far more drinks had we had the chance. Delicious food, and the waiter we had was lovely.

A great venue - delicious, well-priced food and a great range of beers. My ‘go-to’ for taking out of town visitors to and also my ‘local’.

Great service! We had a couple of extra people along with our booking, but our waiter found a bigger table and set it up willingly and efficiently and looked after us attentively for the evening. Truly a showcase of NZ beers and cuisine. It was a memorable night for our international guests. Well done, Craft Embassy. Not easy to find, but worth the search

Service was OUTSTANDING - well organised and she was fun!! all 11 of us were pleased with our meals and drinks-plenty of variety on the menu too, including for the child in our group. Friendly and relaxing atmosphere with fabulous view from the balcony :)

specifically asked to be seated on deck at booking - no explanation as to why this was not accommodated Seated at one of the booths - became very uncomfortable, seats short and backs of legs became sore as difficult to place feet on small ledge. All 7 out of 8 of us were not comfortable by the end of the meal.

A lovely evening on the balcony, on a warm Christchurch evening. Great staff who know their beer and were able to make recommendations for each of our party. The meals were excellent.

Drink options were great, particularly for the beer drinkers. The food was okay, but I felt it wasn't as good as it has been in the past - the menu has changed quite a lot and there weren't as many dishes that excited me. Even little things like being given a steak knife for the lamb rack and beef fillet would have made the experience better - its really hard to cut lamb off a rack without one. The beetroot chocolate cake was excellent although I wasn't sold on the parsnip sorbet.

We were a group of 5, we each had 2 courses with drinks. Would have stayed for dessert but the dessert menu offering was quite poor so we ended up going elsewhere just for dessert. The food we did have was delicious though and the service was good. Would recommend the jalapeño poppers and the short rib burger!

Disappointed with beetroot/goat cheese salad. Did not come with all the ingredients specified on menu. Portion size did not match cost. Location is great, sitting on the balcony over looking the Avon.
