Great Service, Great Food, Great Location, couldn’t ask for anything more. Been here a few times now and can not fault the staff, service or food. Location is also good.

A lovely location, and the heaters keep it toasty outside even on an autumn night. We went on a Monday night, so it was quiet, but the staff were friendly and attentive. We ordered a pizza and a salad, which we both enjoyed. So why...the bad rating? As we’ve only been here the once, I have to base my rating on that experience. I had, shall we say, tummy issues, so we went back to our hotel. I initially put that down to something to do with me, or to bad luck, but my wife had issues half an hour after me. As we hadn’t shared food, that’s something to do with the kitchen.More

Initially the service was good, drinks arrived quickly and food order taken. The food being served to others looked nice, but unfortunately, mine never arrived. After everyone else's food arrived I asked if mine was coming and was told there had been a mix up...but it was on its way. As everyone was finishing their meals, I asked again, only to find it had been mixed up again and hadn't been started yet, so I cancelled it. I guess everyone has a bad day occasionally. Unfortunately, it makes it difficult to rate it any higher (I think average is quite generous under the circumstances).More

On a flying visit to Christchurch for an event, we decided to come here for dinner. The restaurant had a fantastic atmosphere, the staff where very helpful too. Most impressed with the food. We had the anti pasta platter which was very tasty and then...a few small dishes to share, stand out was the pork belly but all dishes were extremely good and we would definitely go back when we next visit ChristchurchMore

We stumbled upon this restaurant after wandering upstairs from the Riverside Market. What a delightful location with great food. I can recommend the Kaiser Pale Ale as well. The menu was substantial, although we chose food from the "Small Plate" section, which was more than...enough for lunch for us. We noticed tables were already booked for the evening. Hence advise doing so if you want to guarantee a spot.More

if you want a great seltzer and an amazing beer and the greatest service by the bartender/waiter Marcus, come to Kaiser. craft beers, great food but the service is paramount. check this place out on a sunny arvo or a nice sunset!

Been a few times now and it’s never disappointed. Really lovely staff always so welcoming and friendly. Pizzas are yummy, chicken is AMAZING, flatbread & chips also yum. Brilliant place for some picky food and drinks - the strawberry bliss cocktail was so good and...I’m not usually one for cocktails but I loved it and plan on going back just for that, so refreshing on a hot summers day. Definitely a favourite in Christchurch :)More

Perfect for sharing with friends! Delicious meal and great prices, loved the fried chicken and Margherita pizza!!! Lovely spritzers as well, my new favourite place!

Pleasant enough spot but the service is far too slow. Please just get the basics right. Water goes on the table at the start. Chicken liver parfait should not take 30 minutes to arrive. If you offer more bread, don’t forget the order. We bought...less alcohol as a result, not more and your staff held up a table.More
