My daughter took me to this wonderful establishment on Fathers Day and we found this place to be extremely well run.
Professional wait staff which is hard to come by lately.
Has a good wine list,Great atmosphere and the food I had was exceptional.
I had the Beef cheek main a scallops entree both superb especially with the Devils Staircase Pino Gris..
Will certainly will be going back with my foodie friends to see if the above is the same.

We are from Melbourne. Happened upon Fiddlesticks. Great bar. Great service. Great table by the fire on a wet and windy Christchurch evening. Ordered 3 tastings- more than plenty for two. Superb. Couldn't fault it and the potatoes as a side were divine. A must go to!

We went here on a cold day and they had a lovely warm area to keep warm and cosy. Food excellent, service excellent. The place has several areas e.g. a place for fine food. a place for a wine and a light meal and a place just for a wine and a chat.

It's a nice cosy place in the heart of CBD, really recommendable. You can come here for a coffee or a drink or have a nice meal in kiwi style. Thought as you are in CBD no free parking space.

It's often packed and noisy but still has a good standard of food. You can enjoy coffee and cake or go to the full menu for moderate to expensive meals.
