Latin; meaning of the name Lillias: Lily (after the flower). Pure.

A family name that is held close to Fraser and Shannon.

The logo, a native Pohuehue vine represents the twining together of owners Fraser and Shannon and the purely special experience they create together in the restaurant.

Lillius takes inspiration from this meaning, inviting guests to dine on the finest New Zealand produce available in beautiful surroundings, while enjoying the comfort of having Fraser and Shannon take care of you.

With a relaxed yet sophisticated dining room and views through to the open kitchen, the experience will have you feeling like you have just stepped into their welcoming home. Offering A la Carte or a set menu that changes often, to keep in season with the fresh produce and whole animals that they use.
