5 course degustation lunch with champagne deal

My husband surprised me here for lunch on our 22nd wedding anniversary. I was worried as I'm a bit fussy with main meal proteins, but I loved everything. The dessert was the standout, it was like it was made just for ME! The salted caramel icecream, the licorice gel bits, the dark chocolate, the... read more

Went for a friends birthday last night and had a superb experience. Often with degustation menus I find the experience can become tiresome - not so at Merediths; timing and portion sizes were spot on, every dish immaculate. Great atmosphere - not stuffy at all but still feels like a special night out.

We recently with friends celebrating a 25th wedding, had an 8 course degustation at this fabulous restaurant. The food was sublime, such delicate flavours and each course was presented with flair. The two wait staff were extremely knowledgable and explained each course with enthusiasm and in great detail.

Celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary with this fabulous 8 course degustation. Each course was balanced and technically amazing. I love to cook and there is no way I would be up to the challenge of creating such wonderful textures, flavours and presentation. What a joy. One of the best degustation experiences I have ever had.

This was a special treat Birthday celebration, where we had the 5 course taster menu and a glass of wine each. The food was superb, original and perfectly cooked. 2.5 hours flew by but we never felt that we were waiting impatiently. Other than saying this was one of the best dining experiences I have had, the only constructive criticisms... More

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

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
