Casual Dining Café New Zealand American Burgers Bars Cocktail Bars
Rascal is a modern bistro and dining bar located in the heart of Christchurch on High Street. 

Rascals menu is designed to share, when you order you are ordering for the table- grab a bunch of dishes and get amongst it.   It’s a social affair in every way, with casual, attentive service that makes sure everyone is well looked after.

Rascals food offering are innovative and thought provoking, featuring new takes on dishes you might recognise, such as savoury doughnuts with 'kiwi onion dip', duck banh mi eclair or crab pani puri with mandarin. 

When you order one of Rascal's cocktails, you can expect them to be a bit cheeky.  Rascal loves playing with new cocktail concepts, often introducing new textures to keep you guessing - from salts + dehydrated garnishes to foams and clarifications.  Wines are also ever-changing and there is a superb collection of beers on tap and by the bottle. 

Whether you need a spot to meet colleagues for lunch or brunch, a hidden courtyard to escape into and sip cocktails, or a table to share dinner with friends and family - they have something for everyone, including your four legged friends! 

The space itself offers seating options along the bar on high tables, traditional seating at the rear of the restaurant and a cosy courtyard for summer evenings. 

Next time you’re thinking about somewhere a little different for your inner-city dining experience, give Rascal a go.  Bookings are advised, or you can always try your luck at a walk-in table.

Do yourself a favour and do not miss the Rascal experience!
