Vic Road Kitchen

Locally Sourced × fresh seasonal produce × daily changing menu


Located in historic Devonport, Vic Road Kitchen is the newest arrival serving up fresh, seasonal New Zealand produce in a rustic Mediterranean style.


Vic Road Kitchen opened the doors of its beautiful brickwork building in historic Devonport in March last year.  Executive Chef Ian Shields and ‘partner in wine’ Harriet Byrnes have combined their extensive knowledge and experience, delivering delicious rustic Mediterranean fare and a curated wine offering which has gained an immediate following with both locals and diners from outside the waterfront suburb.

The Vic Road Kitchen menu changes daily reflecting a commitment to showcasing fresh ingredients from artisan suppliers and ‘as available’ seasonal proteins.

.We are inspired by local produce, lively flavours and by simple delicious plates of food.  Our food is focused on using fresh, seasonal New Zealand produce in a Mediterranean style (both flavours and way of eating).  The menu at Vic Road Kitchen will change daily to reflect our commitment to showcasing produce at its prime.  We mirror this concept with a frequently changing, boutique wine list.  We couldn't be happier with the beautiful old building in Devonport that oozes charm though warm brickwork, soft lighting and the historic feel of the place.  We are excited to tempt locals with our home-made pastas, fresh seafood and meat dishes.  Simple but delicious.

Negroni Week
24th - 30th June

Celebrating 100 years of the Negroni

7 days, 3 ingredients, 1 simple way to give back. Drink for a cause. $1 from every Negroni sold will be donated to our chosen charity, I AM HOPE.

In 2018, in Aotearoa 137 young people died by suicide and it is estimated another 3500 tried to take their own lives. While Government agencies are doing their best, some kids are stuck waiting up to six months to receive the counselling they so urgently need.

I AM HOPE is the youth and community focused support group run by The Key to Life Charitable Trust, started by Mike King. For the last three years Key To Life have been promoting positive attitudinal societal change in schools and communities up and down the country, and funding private care and counselling for young people stuck-in-the-mud on waiting lists. 

So come in this week and try one of our three delicious Negroni specials and give back to a good cause.

Wednesday 26th June 2019

We are very excited to announce another fantastic wine dinner at Vic Road Kitchen and it a complete honour and privilege to have a winery of such high calibre and distinction visiting us. 

Herzog Estate, based in Marlborough is the foremost artisan winery in New Zealand producing premium, handcrafted wines for New Zealand and overseas buyers.  Along with the more traditional Pinot Noir and Bordeaux varieties, Hans successfully planted Pinot Gris, Viognier and Montepulciano, varieties rarely witnessed in New Zealand in 1994.

With the overwhelming success of the very late ripening Montepulciano, Hans holds the ‘green card’ for nearly any variety and successfully planted Nebbiolo, Barbera, Tempranillo, Zweigelt, St. Laurent, Lagrein, Saperavi, Riesling, Marsanne, Roussanne, Verdelho, Arneis, Grüner Veltliner and Vermentino, becoming an inspiration for many bigger wineries who follow in his success. 

Hans Herzog is a unique story and a rare individual who lives and breathes his estate, releasing only the highest quality wines, which are 100% handcrafted from his own vines.

During the evening we will be showing some of the more usual varieties not often seen or tasted including Marsanne, Roussanne, Gruner Veltliner, Zweigelt and the precious last few bottles of Saperavi in New Zealand!  We will also be opening some special older vintage magnums to finish the evening.   

As usual the kitchen will be stepping up and matching all wines with a special 'Swiss' inspired 6-course menu that makes homage to Hans and Therese's lineage and makes the most of fresh, seasonal ingredients.

This is a not to be missed wine event for wine and food lovers!

Tickets are limited to keep an intimate feel to the evening
$140 per person
Includes all wine pairings and full 6-course menu.

 All our past wine events have sold out so be sure to get in quick.

  Please note that due to the popular nature of this particular wine evening, we will be asking for all tickets to be pre-paid before the event.
