Service was great, food was yummy and we had a fabulous evening. The cocktails were great and the staff were really accommodating when it came to dietary requirements. The only suggestion we have is that we felt there wasn’t quite enough cheese or bread on...the cheese platter for the price charged, another couple of slices of bread and slightly larger slices of cheese and we think you have it nailed.More

Food was yummy, we got sharing platters for the table. Was disappointed with the cocktail section and there was no Mocktail section on menu so if you weren’t drinking alcohol you were only able to choose fizzy or juice. Waitress was quite rude and other...staff members made strange comments about us taking her with us when we left because of how rude she was being. To be honest I don’t think I would ever book here or recommend to anyone, plenty of better places on The Terrace to go!More

My manager came over from Aus and we took some clients out for dinner, the food was great but the service was absolutely outstanding. Anita took care of us, she was hilarious and made the night an absolute cracker. I will definitely be back!!

We had a group of 8 people and the service was brilliant - everyone had burgers and chicken, beef and vegan ones were excellent. wines and beers were awesome, and beautiful location. Just got a bit hot on the deck around 3pm and it would...be nice to have an awning ....More

I love this place. So grateful for their delicious vegan menu. And thank you for delivering our food in time so that we could head off to our show at Little Andromeda

We had a lovely lunch yesterday, with friends sitting outside on the balcony. As usual, my steak was cooked perfectly and my husbands fish was lovely too. It was the first visit here for our friends, and we have converted them to eating at craft...embassy whenever they are in town!More

Just had a fantastic night here celebrating my mum's birthday. Delicious food, great service and excellent drinks - not just the beer! I had some lovely cocktails and my folks loved the wine selection. Really yum food - I particularly liked the battered pickles! We...managed to squeeze in dessert, which was also excellent. Lovely friendly staff too! Had a fab night, top spot in Chch I reckon - will be back for sure!More
