Went with a group of friends and were treated to delicious food friendly staff and a great evening out. No hesitation in recommending this restaurant.

We had a gorgeous Roast Pork today Sunday 19th October. Service was attentive but not a nuisance, excellent NZ Sav Blanc. Vegetables were perfectly cooked especially the roast potatoes! Restaurants often don't get them right but these were spot on ! Gorgeous puds, Panna Cotta, Cheesecake & Treacle Tart all got the thumbs up. Would happily return and recommend. Tip:... More

I was part of a group of 15 and we were given the room above the stairs for a semi private dining set up. The service was impeccable the orders were known, no one was asked what their order was, the right food was put in front of everyone. A thoughtful touch that I've always liked, but respect a lot...

Came here on the recommendation of some friends on a Wednesday evening. We did not book, and although the restaurant was busy were given a choice of tables. The staff were very welcoming and our server, Marc, amiable and knowledgeable. We drank Kir and red Ruca Malen - both of which were great. To start I ate Scallops and my... More

The food here is great. Set menus are often disappointing and make you wish you had gone a la carte. On a Monday night in October the set menu at Riverstation was better than I could have expected. Delicious starter of linguine with dried tuna and interesting fresh herbs. The main course took sausage, mash, kale and gravy to a... More

I took my mum here for her birthday having not been to this restaurant previously. I took guidance from comments on tripadvisor and I now understand why they get such good reviews. We were lucky to have picked a beautiful sunny day and the welcoming staff member happily moved our reservation from within the restaurant to the balcony. The view... More

I have been to Riverstation a few times recently. Upstairs is more expensive although the surroundings are no plusher. The food is meatier and there is an excellent wine list. Downstairs is more wine bar/ bistro in style. There is usually a pie or a tart and one or two more simple and occasionally unusual dishes. Prices are much lower.... More

Very impressed with everything on my 1st visit to Riverstation....the staff were extremely courteous, professional, helpful and full of smiles....on arrival we were initially offered a table for 2 next to an extremely large party of diners which would have been an unbelievably noisy experience....my heart sunk as it would have made conversation virtually impossible and completely spoiled our evening...the...

Having been a regular at Bells diner in the seventies and eighties, its good to see how the skills and ethos have been carried over in the River station. The meals always have a light and imaginative touch to them and the prices within the means of all. We had a really excellent lunch for my 76th birthday, my wife... More
