We dined her on two occasions during our recent stay in Christchurch. We found the location very handy, being a short walk from our hotel - Heritage, and close to the botanical gardens, museum and art gallery. A contemporary restaurant with a good choice of food made from locally sourced produce. Very friendly and obliging staff entered around an informal... More

We enjoyed a very tasty lunch at Fiddlesticks in Christchurch. We had a grouper entree and a BBQ lam sandwich, which were both excelllent and fairly priced. Service was friendly and efficient.

We had a really delicious dinner. The Akaroa salmon was far superior to any other salmon dish I have ever had!!! And I have enjoyed a lot of salmon! My husband had the pork cutlet and that was a great choice as well. The restaurant was busy but not noisy and the service was very professional and efficient, with just... More

This was our first meal upon arriving in New Zealand. It was delicious and easy. Servers were delightful and the food was fantastic. We don't eat beef or pork and found they had a wonderful selection for us. Great soup, mussels, fish, deserts.

Well situated restaurant near the Botanic Gardens. Booking essential for the evening. Great service and in the main good food. I had the market fish which was beautifully cooked, my partner had the salmon which was very nice. The big disappointment was the duck fat roast potatoes which had been cooked either for far too long or too often and... More

Ducked in to shelter from the sudden rain, and stayed for the evening! Our meals just couldn't be faulted, from the delicate beef cheek arancini to the perfectly rare steak, to the decadent banana and hazelnut - everything beautifully presented and tasting amazing. Attentive but unobstrusive staff and a nice atmosphere.

We enjoyed a great lunch in this downtown restaurant not far from the Garden. Server was very pleasant, several gluten free options. You can eat outside if the weather is fine, but plenty of indoor seating available. Highly recommend.

We've just had two amazing breakfasts in a row there! Can't fault it at all! Food (I usually order crepes there) was great, service was also great! If you are not sure if you like any dish on the menu, you can always compose your own breakfast made of sides - that was really yummy and convenient! Definitely recommended and... More
