Christchurch City's only Inner-City Argentinian Restaurant


From Garden to Table - extraordinary food with the lightest of global footprints.

 

We take garden to table seriously - from our rooftop beehives, with 60,000 wonderful bees producing honey used throughout our hand-crafted dishes, to our passion for serving quality produce from within our region and nationally. Some of our produce and suppliers include Amuri Truffiere, North Canterbury,  Meyer Vintage Gouda from Hamilton, Ora King Salmon from Nelson, Te Mana Lamb from Canterbury, Akarua Wines in Cromwell, to name just a few of the hundreds of local providers we source and proudly work with. We are unique in our city, offering Argentinian fare with distinct and authentic flavours.

 

 

A recent article and review sums our offering up well:

"Walking into The Polo Bar feels like stepping into polo clubrooms or a Ralph Lauren photo shoot.  The bar, located downstairs in plush Hotel Montreal, has a table laden with trophies, and a collection of mallets.  Polo ponies feature heavily on the walls, and the staff uniforms are distinctively polo preppy, with Hotel Montreal silk neckties, capri pants, and jumpers casually draped.  The Polo Bar takes its name seriously.

The feel is casual and effortless elegance as if you're lazing on a hacienda.  Perch on an over-sized and vivid blue leather couch in front of the indoor fire, or head outdoors to the leafy garden bar.  Relax on the grass, or if you're feeling active, play games on the manicured croquet lawn.  There's an outdoor fire, a pizza oven, and sometimes even a barbecue roasting chicken.  Craft breweries that feature on the drinks menu include Panhead Brewery and Moa.

The Polo Bar's culinary team is impressive.  Chef Jay Refugia has created a menu inspired by Argentinian cuisine.  The menu is full of delicious morsels for sharing, and everything is beautifully presented on wooden boards.  Enjoy meats (smoked or grilled), tapas, or picada (antipasto)."

Come and relax with us for a while, enjoy our extraordinary culinary delights in a wonderful space.

What our patrons say

We had an amazing time at this wonderful hotel! Amazing spacious rooms, very clean, great staff and location! We also had dinner at the Polo Bar Restaurant which was very good and great service! Would love to come back!

Wish we could have stayed longer. Conveniently located within 10 minutes of the train station and city center. Modern architecture inside. Very pleasant and helpful staff. Very nice modern rooms.

Our stay at this boutique hotel was magnificent! Loved the spacious room, the personal service, and the attention to detail. The food at the Polo Bar & Restaurant is also worth mentioning, from breakfast, over lunch to dinner. We felt very well taken care of in all aspects. Go there if you are looking for excellent, personalised service in a very relaxed setting.

We had a great experience staying at the HM! We highly recommend it if you are in Canterbury, great location and atmosphere. The crew was very attentive and focused in every single detail. The dining experience was good and the service brilliant.
