Provisions is an Arrowtown institution at the end of the much-photographed row of old miners' cottages. The old-fashioned garden, with its roses, lavender and fruit trees, is a peaceful haven away from the hustle and bustle of main street. Perfect for a lazy breakfast or lunch – or just a coffee and one of their legendary sticky buns.
Postmasters Cottage Café , once home to the town’s postmasters, has been a main street feature since the 1860s. The villa's historic charm – think hitching post, picket fence, hedged courtyard and wisteria-draped verandahs – makes it a lovely spot to catch up over a meal.
Bendix Stables is housed in yet another historic building on Buckingham Street, this time stone stables built in 1873. The gastropub's outdoor dining area fronts onto Buckingham Green and gets evening sun. Here you can watch the kids run around as you enjoy a beer or wine and share a plate or two.
The Dishery is the newest kid on the block. Here you can indulge in bistro-style dining on a generous patio with views of the picturesque Arrow River Reserve and the Chinese Village. It's just the place to take in the beauty of Arrowtown while enjoying locally sourced fresh food, cocktails and wine.

Or if you're looking for something more substantial, head to the Hole in One Café or Millhouse, which offer outdoor seating too.
Arrowtown is certainly spoilt for choice with many popular al fresco dining spots including:
