Our Story

Lipsky is a local name from the German region of Westphalia. Habitational names came to Germany after the 12th century and were derived from the name of the place where an ancestor lived. Leungo Lippe pays homage to his relatives of the Lipsky family and has created a bar and restaurant on the other side of the world in their name.

Lipsky & Sons is a continuation of Leungo’s heritage, and his culinary experiences are reflected in his restaurant.
Lipsky & Sons features a separate bar and dining room, courtyard, oyster bar, grill, great beverage list and private dining room. Available for event and large group hire.


The restaurant is a well decorated generous room, able to cater for large groups. The space includes a separate lush private dining room for up to 10 people. (We are currently not using this room)

Doors open at 4pm, a prix fixe menu available from 5.00-6.30pm, and evening dining beginning at 5.00pm.

(In essence, we want to serve you food from 4pm until late.)

The Bar

Lipsky & Sons has a separate bar, ideal for large groups or more intimate moments. A spacious courtyard is positioned in between the bar and restaurant – think sunny afternoons or après ski with the large fireplace.

Serving favourite local Central Otago wines, alongside some unexpected choices to add intrigue to your experience, tap beers, including local and international favourites, a huge selection of spirits. Enjoy with some delicious share plates, and something from the raw oyster and charcuterie bars.
