Treated to a surprise lunch at Merediths. We had a lovely meal,five courses with glass of champagne. The food was amazing and the service impeccable. The lunch time menu is set but full of surprises. The meal was accompanied by very good wine selected on the recommendation of our server.

Small comment. We were the first to arrive for the evening therefore to start could not fault the attentive staff. As the restaurant got fuller we were left longer between courses with empty plates on the table, water was not filled as quickly, a drink order was forgotten then eventually we were not offered more drinks at all. Small criticism... More

Please pay no attention to the fair or poor ratings of this exceptional restaurant; they are obviously written by meat and potatoes diners. Our five course lunch, prepared by Chef Michael Meredith and his staff and provided by Peta Mathias as a high point in her culinary adventure tour of New Zealand, was outstanding. For me it was THE culinary... More

We enjoyed the 5 course degustation returning completely empty plates after each delectable course. The combination of flavours and textures was a delight to us all. The resturarant... More

Well I'm torn...... 2 stars or three? I have to say it's a tough decision. For my humble opinion the food seemed to show a high degree of skill, but my partner and I were underwhelmed with the multi course meal. Here continued the trend of serving barely warm food, very small portions and some courses felt a little style... More

We visited Meredith's on a Saturday evening. The service was average; lacking in continuity and at times forgetful. I did not feel the vegetarian menu was given due consideration. In comparing my vegetarian alternatives to my partner's plates, it looked as though the meat had simply been removed and replaced with a few extra bits of garnish, if anything. Throughout... More

Had a meal at Meredith’s a while ago and is still the best meal of my life. Straight up was so awesome, I’m a chef and it defiantly helped me to think out of the box (how did they make this) and made me a better chef. Hats off to you guys, the flavours and textures worked really well. Cheers... More

Great service and the quality of the food for the standard 9 course tasting menu was very good. The lamb was slightly tough, but otherwise a balanced course. However, my wife being a pescatarian, was given protein with only 2 out of the 7 savoury courses. The booking was done a month in advance and clearly stipulated my wife's requirements.... More

Went to this "quiet & unobtrusive" restaurant, wow what a treat! Great degustation, very obliging with the pre-booked "no red meat" request, & wonderfully professional & friendly staff. Simply Tops, tho up there in price it's worth it.
