Castlecliff is an upcoming suburb of the quant town Whanganui - Right next to the beach with affordable housing. The Citadel is a restaurant/cafe that makes wonderful gourmet burgers for its residents and visitors. I had the Classic burger with a beef patty and it was a great handmade burger - it was also extremely filling! Burger start from $10 and you also have a huge variety of chips! If you're ever visiting Whanganui and want a good gourmet burger then The Citadel is where you need to be!
Quick and prompt, we came when it was quieter and late but they served us promptly. The owner is lovely and is happy to chat about her journey of making The Citadel happen.
For what it is, you getting amazing burgers for really good prices. And the chips are great too.
The burgers and chips - The Classic burger had a whole pickle on top (YUS) and the patty was exactly what you'd want in a burger - fresh, cooked medium rare, juicy and succulent. The chips were wedges which were chunky and cripsy. Perfect combination!
