Good value deliciousness. Fast and tasty- we chose the medium size which was more than we could eat for $20. I had beef cheeks with roast parsnips, baked kumera, a walnut & apple salad and a green salad. Cheerful staff & great central location.

My wife and I cannot speak highly enough of this restaurant - in fact, we made a trip over the Crown Range from Queenstown primarily so we could have another meal here!

It's not flashy, in fact the magic is in its simplicity; deliberately 'slow food' in terms of how it's been cooked, however it's all there ready to get served onto a plate. You simply choose your plate size, the meat you want (we both went for the slow-roasted beef cheek - INCREDIBLE!), and the sides & salads. There's always a nice range of options, however they all feel like meals your grandma would make (at least if she was a whiz in the kitchen).

It's such a refreshing change from generic 'fast food' options. Value is reasonable, $20 for the Medium size dish which was perfect for me (a noted big eater!).

There's also some interesting drinks available, including some craft beers and nice wines.

It's not a big restaurant, although they were still very welcoming towards our family including two small children.

I wish we had a place like this in our hometown!

We’re one veggie and one meat eater. A lot of menus didn’t intrigue us, but Big Fig really did. It didn’t disappoint, the food was amazing, really fresh and tasty. It was great to have so many good options too, and for dessert!

Great atmosphere and service, would recommend.
