Many a long lunch has turned into a lost afternoon in the Belvedere’s viney courtyard, and many a quick pit stop has fallen foul of the charcuterie board. There’s a hint of the 1960s in the casual fit-out of this 1880s building, replete with sculptural touches and with a fire roaring in the white brick hearth during winter months. The farm-to-table menu draws on local producers such as Tuki Trout Farms and Vue du Volcan Duck, and the cocktails are in collaboration with local artisan producer Natasha Morgan (such as ‘The artist formerly known as Quince'). There’s often jazz on weekend evenings, and if your visit is between Thursday and Monday, you can additionally nip next door to the Thirteen 05 gallery for a snoop. It’s run by two artists, Emma McAdam-Marmont and Struan Hopwood, with regular guest exhibitors.
