  • Good for special occasions
  • Good for groups
  • Great for fine wines
Striking the right cord with its food-centric wine bar, Earl is bringing the welcoming fine casual dining lifestyle to Christchurch.

A friendly all-day venue that’s laid back while still delivering an around-the-clock sense of occasion.

Serving as canvas for produce-driven dishes to offbeat diners geared towards great wine and conversation, synonymous with the flavour, energy and relaxed vibe inspired by the costal European culture, Earl truly captures the essence of the city lifestyle with its buzzy local vibe and being more concerned with doing simple things well than breaking new ground.

The light-filled restaurant with high ceilings and stone bar that wraps around the kitchen, makes it ideal for lingering over fresh seasonal salads, house made pastas & antipasti. With the ability to be both intimate and convivial, Earl is ideal for a group dinner or one-on-one encounters.

    Service was excellent and very friendly. The food was delicious. The only downer was the restaurant was noisy, which made ut hard to hear at times.

    Warm welcome, excellent food, fish of the day was delicious. Felt a bit rushed between courses, seating a bit close for a romantic dining experience. One of our wait staff made a great wine recommendation to go with the fish.

    Great service, Great ambience. Well balanced mains. Unfortunately some dishes were a little cold on delivery. Portion sizes were a tad small. Potentially just got unlucky with the temperature. Will visit again later

    The best restaurant in Christchurch. We are foodies and try new places each week. Nothing comes close to Earl. It ticks all the boxes. You can tell the staff enjoy working there and the chefs are so passionate and creative. Its Fantastic!

    Good environment with open kitchen and great service to match. Got a tad cold in the restaurant towards the end of the evening. We had the “Eat like an Earl” option which was great for the 4 of us. To finish off with a dessert each would have topped it off, but had to share 2 between the 4 of us. Overall great night out though, would recommend to friends.

    Earl does what other restaurants often don’t. They deliver excellent food from starter through to dessert, along with impeccable service and a delightful ambience. We will be back soon.
