Took my sister here for her birthday dinner in March, as it is her favourite restaurant in Hamilton. I hadn't dined here before but was very impressed with the experience! The meat was cooked beautifully - it melted in your mouth. Service was fantastic as well, so much so that we ignored the normal NZ tradition of not tipping. Highly... More

I was late booking for Friday evening but they managed to find us a table. As always the service was assured and unobtrusive, with good knowledge of the wine list and helpful guidance when requested. The food was, as always, elegant without being overly complicated, with beautifully balanced flavours. The tiramisu did leave me a bit underwhelmed tonight but the... More

The service was awesome and the food delicious. We always need good coffee and it reached our quality. The dessert of baked cheesecake was the best we had tried.

Our business used the Victoria Street function room for a 30 person evening out. This was an exceptional dining experience for both food and service. Right from the time our group arrived until the time we left the wait staff were attentive without being obtrusive. Without a doubt I would recommend this resturant and venue to anyone looking for an... More

This was our first visit to this reknown restaurant and it certainly won't be our last. We were impressed with the elegant decor for a start. We were greeted immediately and politely, and were served with the same high quality of service from start to finish. We were there for lunch on a Grabone voucher and the food was absolutely... More

Our last feast before the birth of our child! We decided to splurge and ordered the crispy pork hock and Peking duck! Both dishes were plated beautifully and tasted amazing! Service was great too!

I have dined at VSB numerous times and I can honestly say it is the best restaurant in Hamilton. The food and service is standout and even months apart the staff recall your past visits.

When we arrived we were greeted by a friendly staff. We had made a reservation so the staff guided us to our seats. The service... More

It was not a big restaurant, it had 2 sittings - 6-8.30 and 8.30 till late. We booked the early sitting and sat in the front booth where was more quiet than the other part of the restaurant. We had calamari and sashimi as entrees, beef cheeks and crispy pork hog as mains. They were all delicious and melt in... More
