Ranked #34 of 1,221 Restaurants in Christchurch
Certificate of Excellence
Description: Located in Stranges Lane in Christchurch, Soul Quarter has been designed to create a comfortable, warm and inviting atmosphere. Summer dining is open to the sheltered courtyard while evening and winter dining is candlelit with the fire on. Our talented chefs have designed a modern Louisiana, French style menu with South and Latin American influences. The menu celebrates local, fresh and seasonal produce with incredible flavours and plenty of gluten free, vegan and other dietary options. Our front of house team are friendly, attentive and go out of their way to provide excellent service and a great dining experience. The lit up bar has a carefully selected wine and craft beer list with some of the best wines that our region has to offer and impressive champagnes. We specialise in our in-house designed cocktails, created with fresh, seasonal ingredients and our team's extensive international cocktail experience.

With no flashy street frontage, Soul Quarter is a true hidden gem. Once inside, the lighting and décor create a special atmosphere for drinking and dining. The service is top notch and super friendly. Cascade Bar is already establishing a reputation for it's cocktails which are extensive and delicious. After a couple it was next door and into Soul Quarter where the service and food were delicious. It was superior dining experience, beautifully prepared and presented food. My sirloin was cooked to perfection. I really didn't need the Coconut Rice Pudding, but was so glad I did.

What a great find! Love the little courtyard this is located in. Having enjoyed a couple of drinks at Cascade we moved over to Soup Quarter. Instantly loved the New Orleans vibes, really funky place - love the velvet seats and window shutters. Food was delicious! I went for a light meal so I had room for dessert - the key lime pie was yummy! Excellent drinks selection, I had some scrummy cocktails. Lovely staff - very professional and friendly. Can't wait to go back and try the venison, it looked amazing.

We started with chorizo & quest fondue and chicken parfait both were delicious. My husband had Ribeye with mixed greens and baby beets perfectly cooked. I had Venison with flan potatoes and minted baby peas. Great service, very attentive staff. Would recommend.

Ben & Hannah were so accomodating & easy to work with arranging their first function. Everyone was very happy, the food was high quality, drink selection & bar staff fantastic. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this team/venue for a get together, drinks or dining. Will definately be back for a cheeky cocktail or wine! Thanks so much team. Well done.

Servers were attentive and food was delicious, well presented, and served in a timely manner - don't miss the Chorizo & Queso Fondue. Will need to go back to sample some of their cocktails.
