Since 2006


O ver in Lyttelton, on the corner of a quiet intersection sits Freemans, a restaurant offering good honest food. Serving the Lyttelton community since 2006, Freemans is big on making their customers feel welcome. In fact they pride themselves on encouraging people to stay awhile so don’t feel pressured to eat and run.

There is a cosy space inside where you can flick through cooking and cocktail books, and a big deck out back for watching the sunset over the ocean. Culinary highlights include the new-to-menu gourmet pizzas (which are light, fresh and delicious) and chocolate almond torte with a flourish of toffee coated mandarin slices. A perfect place to while away an evening…(Thanks Neat Places for this lovely description)

Owner/Chef Nick Freeman has a passion for simple, honest food using only the freshest ingredients. He leads a team of dedicated and talented chefs who share this passion. At Freemans you will be greeted by a team of people who know their stuff! We place a big emphasis on training and professional development from the back to the front of house. Our team take their role seriously and this is reflected in the level and quality of service they aim to provide every time you visit. There is no doubt that they are the success of Freemans and our success is the key to our longevity!
