Botswana Butchery combines premium produce, wine and local ingredients from the Auckland region with the best of what Central Otago can offer.

Located in the historic Ferry Building on Quay Street, Botswana Butchery brings a taste of the south to the heart of Auckland city.

The restaurant offers lunch, dinner and bar menus in gorgeous surroundings.  The ethos of 'fun dining' is key to Botswana Auckland, which is plush and wonderfully distinctive but also welcoming and fun.

Following its popular ‘sister’ restaurant, the Auckland restaurant produces fabulously flavoursome, succulent meals from the best local produce with high levels of service and attention to detail at every stage of its wine and food delivery.
