Description: Our Ethos: From Farm to Fork. Food with honesty, from sources of integrity. Grown, harvested and procured by passionate people. Telling the stories of our Southern region, the changing seasons, the people who work the land, the sea and the bounty it provides. Our role as chefs is to tell these stories; we are the link between mother nature and the diner. We hunt….. we gather….. we grow….. we cook, this is the story we wish to share.

As usual , the service was attentive, efficient and pleasant. The young staff do a great job in making dining at Emberz a very pleasant experience. Very impressed. The menu was diverse and appealing. My husband's steak was cooked PERFECTLY and the plating up was beautiful and balanced flavour-wise and texture-wise. Tomorrow we are returning and ordering the same meal for us both. Congrats to the chef and the excellent staff

Having arrived in town without dinner plans we just walked to our nearest restaurant according to Google. Emberz. At the Ascot.

And we're so glad we did too. We had the pick of the best tables. But they insisted we have Yazmin as our server. Turns out she's the best server.

Food was amazing. Seafood chowder was a hearty serving. Vodka salmon gravlax was a revelation. Rosebud cocktail came in a very big glass. Mains were pork belly and venison ribs. Both did not disappoint. Very delicious. With little surprises. Desserts were chocolate cake and cheesecake. Big big big surprises. But delicious.

Would highly recommend as the perfect spot for a couples dinner but we share the dinning room with families too. .

An unplanned dining experience, didn’t have a booking and front of house accommodated us, friendly server and checked in for drinks on the regular ordered the chicken noodle salad which was delicious, also Thai beef salad which was a great combination of ingredients, well balanced and solid on the texture front a little oily but would order again, tiger prawns were a nice treat paired well with the purée, price point and portion size was great, recommend.

Booked into the emberez bar to eat as more buzzy but a bit busy so had to eat in the restaurant which we don’t like as it’s dark with no atmosphere.
