Apprentice Restaurant

Gate 3, NorthTec Campus, 51 Raumanga Valley Road, Whangārei

The Apprentice Restaurant is a licenced training restaurant that offers trainee chefs and front of house staff the opportunity to practice their skills in a real-life restaurant. We appreciate your patience as our students develop their skills.  The prices reflect that whilst we endeavour to make your experience the best possible, there may occasionally be delays, and we thank you for this understanding.

Open to the Public

We are open to the public during term time (bookings essential), and upon request for group bookings.

Traditionally we run an a la carte menu, the menu changes depending on which cookery programme is in service. Because this is a training restaurant, guests are required to arrive on time.
