Visiting Chch on a week off work and was recommended to visit No 4. There are so many great dishes on offer but I settled for the 350gm ribeye steak which was cooked perfectly ! Was lucky to be served by Bella who gave great...service and suggested a fabulous pinot to compliment my meal. Will definitely return when back in Chch and will recommend to all my friends back homeMore

Not only is the food and atmosphere outstanding but we were welcomed and by the lovely Bella who took care to attend to our needs. Bella was able to recommend some delicious dishes and gave us just the right amount of attention (it was "date-night")...while still keeping an eye out when our glasses needed topping up. We will definitely be coming back again for date-night!More

We would recommend No 4 is an outstanding Local Restaurant & Bar - we would suggest their specials along with the regular menus

We just popped into No. 4 Merivale fir a quiet drink and a light bit to eat. We have been there several times before for just drinks which is fine. Staff are pleasant and attentive but tonight the food was a real let down. My...wife had the ceviche (incredibly salty, stale nachos and a tiny half teaspoon of avocado paste) and I had the dumplings (straight out of a packet, greasy, over spiced and instant indigestion). I don’t normally complain but when we came to leave the staff member did ask ‘ how was your meal’ to which we had to say the above. She tried to find the manager but to no avail.More

Absolutely no service. Not even water in 20 minutes. Hard to see how t this business survives. Avoid like a plague. Very bad.

Unfortunately the chef could not cook a steak. I would give this joint a miss. Observation Full of St Andrew’s parents tossing off. And that’s because they f St pins or their school team. Was in a party of 30 Ordered a medium steak. Everyone...got a rarer that’s rare steak because the kitchen staff were bloody hopeless.More

We booked a table for 7pm and it was a typically busy evening at No 4. We ordered the bruschetta to share and sipped our wine as we bided our time for the main course... we are informed (by the truly lovely and attentive staff)...that there's a bit of a wait on for the mains. Fair enough, it was busy. So we're nearly down to the bottom of the bottle when the mains arrive. My friend had the pork belly which was crispy, well glazed and pretty much perfect (if it wasn't for the rather too spicy daal). I had the best Beef Wellington the world has ever bore witness to. To say it was stunning is an understatement. Crumbly flaky pastry, tender and melt in the mouth steak, complimented with a tangy beetroot mash and pea cream. Exquisite.More

Food and service was okay but far too many tables taken up with non eaters just drinking with their designer dogs in tow. I love dogs but not in a place where people eat. Icing on the cake for me was when a waitress brought...out a dog bowl of water and put it in the ground for a customers dog and then immediately served another customer with water without washing her hands. That did it for me unfortunately so won’t visit here again.More

Nice place great staff but average squid dish think it may have sat for a bit before we got it as it was soggy

Very impressed with the gorgeous food presented so well! We just loved it. We had pork belly and steak. The flavours were wonderful. Good service, nice vibe. Desserts so nice... can’t wait to return!
