We were a party of 4 out for pre-dinner bubbles. We each ordered 6 oysters prepared various ways plus a bottle of Moet. Just beautiful and the oysters were so delicious. The champagne chilled to perfection. What a beautiful bar for Christchurch.

Nice newish place offers mostly oysters and bubbles but also some other food and wine. Good location, friendly service. A bit expensive but nice for an occasion.
