Amazing steak - none better. The service and menu are fantastic and the wine list excellent too. Not cheap by any stretch of the imagination, but very very good.

The service and food was very good. Our waiter was brilliant. It was a little pricey....but I guess you have to pay extra for meat that good.

We have visited Jervois at least 15 times in the past 2 years - and simply cannot fault it. If there has ever been a problem it is fixed without drama and the food is beyond reproach. A simple recipe executed superbly. Will continue to return as often as possible.

Superb meal from the moment we were greeted by the charming Maitre D'. We enjoyed our excellent cocktails served by a very professional and knowledgeable barman. I loved listening to the waiter's description of the specials and his amusing narrative. It also made are choices so much harder. We settled on a fantastic Steak Tartare probably the finest I have...

Expensive but *very* good. I had the calamari schnitzel; my wife, the beef filet; and my daughter, the lamb. All delicious. Very good, crisp onion rings. We shared the (five) truffles for dessert -- *very* tasty. Very convenient; just across the street from our hotel (Abaco on Jervois). Wife adds: “There is no tipping for anything in New Zealand.

We liked the food and service. The restaurant does what it says on the tin and provides really good steaks. Service is professional but this place is not cheap.
