At Ryman villages, we never stand still when it comes to innovation, and our menu is no different. Delicious is Ryman's bespoke seasonal menu that is prepared fresh on site using fresh ingredients.
There is a choice of three main courses, including a vegetarian option - the aim is to tempt all taste buds. We also cater for special dietary requirements.
Village chefs blend variety, freshness and flair to create menu options that satisfy both comfort-food cravings as well as a hankering for something more exotic. Think roast chicken or baked teriyaki salmon with a soy and ginger glaze.
Our seasonal menu is always evolving as residents tell us what works, and what could be better. We serve up 120 different meals each month, so the same meal won't reappear for 4 weeks - unless of course it's back by popular demand.
Perks such as enjoying a chef-prepared meal every day mean the living is easy in a Ryman village. And when you see residents gathering at meal times you realise there's another another perk - the friendships and camaraderie that emerge while residents enjoy a Delicious meal together.
Residents are fully catered for in our care centres, and serviced-apartment residents enjoy a main meal as well as morning and afternoon tea.
Independent residents, friends and family are welcome to join us for a meal any time. Simply make a reservation at the village reception.
