Probably one of the best pizzas I've ever eaten. Made with the owners own apple and pear chutney and a blend of three cheeses. I had the Hen & Nuts pizza (pine nuts). It was simply DELICIOUS!!!

We saw this place as we were driving past and decided to stop and give it a try. The staff were super friendly and the atmosphere is relaxed - this ain't fine dining. The food was sooooo good. I had a Hula Hula pizza and a pear salad. The pizza and salad were great, and the salad dressing, omg yum!... More

Very unusual pizza combinations, including wild game pizzas. There was also a selection of unusual local beers and wines.

My husband and I were driving from Picton to Christchurch after arriving on the last ferry. With not much else opened on a winter Sunday night, we found Black Rabbit on our drive and found it warm and inviting. The pear salad and veggie pizza were fantastic.

We tried a pizza with pear and blue cheese, ans another one with chicken, fruit chutney, pistachio and capsicon and both were simply stunning! Thin dough and enough ingredients. The place is also warm and welcoming, so is the staff. We would love to try the other pizzas!
