Offering a host of freshly caught seafood and other locally-sourced ingredients cooked simply to bring out their fine flavours, The Jetty at Ocean Village is helmed by Chef Patron Alex Aitken and is the sister restaurant to the multi-award-winning ‘The Jetty’ in Christchurch. Join us for lunch or dinner in our beautiful retreat by the waterside, featuring a fantastic al fresco deck complete with all-weather private dining pods.
The Jetty, on the hotel’s ground floor, specialises in fresh seafood, caught daily by local fishermen, served with locally-grown, seasonal ingredients from the New Forest. Expect nothing less than exceptional food and wine from renowned local chef Alex Aitken.
The restaurant combines contemporary city chic with a laid-back style, featuring al fresco dining on the terrace, tasteful banquette seating, sleek marble surfaces and bespoke artwork.
From dining on one of the popular set and tasting menus to just sipping wine on the al fresco terrace, and enjoying a selection of Jetty bites, The Jetty offers a variety of dining options throughout the day.
For those wanting a quieter alternative to HarBAR on 6th, the restaurant also has its own comfortable bar serving excellent cocktails.
Don’t miss: On the last Friday of every month, Alex hosts ‘lunch with Alex’ - a live cooking demonstration of a three-course set menu.
Custom-made for entertaining and celebrations, delight in Chef Alex's specially curated private dining menus inside our exclusive and intimate pods, right on the water's edge.
