Great food, good selection and reasonably quick service. Restaurant and bar area has a good atmosphere as well. Good selection of drinks and the platters are okay value for money. From thursday to Saturday it pays to book a table, as it can get quite full.

It was a great find and we had a fantastic time at USSCo. The service was good but there was a slight delay with our mains. We loved the decor (cool industrial) and the atmosphere (busy but not loud). Would come back in a hurry

I took a colleague and a customer here for dinner and left a full stomach of averagenous (if that's a word) but an empty pocket. The wait staff were pleasant, the food was ok the prawn ravioli was ok but I've had better, the same with the oysters. The eye fillet was ok but nothing special and have also had... More

Have chosen this eaterie based on the reviews and was pleasantly surprised to find top quality food and a very cool modern decor that would not be out of place in trendy New York.

Very friendly staff found us a quiet table for 2 in this fully booked restaurant on a Monday night. Delicious mains followed the complimentary amuse bouche. Accompanying local beverages were also a treat. Definitely save room for dessert here..they are a triumph.

We had a set menu here with a group of about 20. The fish was very nice and so was the selection of ice creams. The bread was divine...seemed to have cheese and herbs on it. Wine a bit expensive...double the cellar door!

A group of us went to Ussco for a beautiful meal. We were greeted with a local guy playing a guitar and singing pop songs really well. The waiting staff was great. The wine list was expensive but that didn't hold us back as there was a good choice of NZ and local wines and cocktails.I had the duck which... More
