Please note, we are temporarily closed until our new location is ready.

The Marans is expanding! We are currently closed at 222 Main St and we are busy renovating 165 Main St to be ready to open in the Spring of 2021.

222 Main St is the new home of our sister restaurant, BANTAM, and will reopen mid-January 2021. It will feature small plates and a curated wine menu.

Please email for any questions or for info about New Year’s Eve. Follow us on Instagram to watch the transformations of both locations.

‘(Sykes) has no commercial equipment and relies on his creativity and his love of combining locally sourced food with international flavours, all with a County twist.’

The Wellington Times

It’s true that The Marans is a restaurant paradox. It is only 650 sq ft. The kitchen has no commercial cooking equipment. And yet, on any given evening, a passerby can smell curry on the air, see the chandeliers glow on the sidewalk and hear the laughter and banter of the patrons inside. It is a small restaurant that has created a large presence.

Tucked in next to the historic Regent Theatre right in the heart of Picton, The Marans has felt at home as soon as the doors opened in March 2019. It is a restaurant that serves Internationally inspired dishes, prepared with local flare, using fresh local ingredients.
