We visited on a very cold Christchurch evening. Had a fantastic night, husband had the duck which he raved about. I had the pork belly which looked divine but didn't quite hit the mark. Teeth shattering crackling was a bit of a let down. Friendly service although was a bit slow as they seemed a bit understaffed. Desert pleased me... More

We had a very average meal, with very average service and food. We had a meal 2 years ago and it was fantastic. Would not go back

We were a group of four and had dinner reservation. The staff called to confirm our reservation a few hours before and suggested that we arrive earlier to have a drink at the Astro bar, which is located behind the bistro. Cosy atmosphere, dim light, some sofa and coffee table seating, crowd in their 30's, with live music and two... More

Went there for belated Valentine's day. Great atmosphere, very friendly lovely service, then the food~ Yup, worth for the money! Food is not cheap, it cost us above NZD100 for food and wines, but it's definitely somewhere you think it's worth spending, and make you wanna come back again!

The restaurant was recommended by the driver who picked us up at the airport. Dinner reservation was made easily through the website and a confirmation call was received shortly after. On arrival, we were seated at the back of the restaurant - where the entrance to Astro Lounge is (I think). I ordered the Mixed Grill and was pretty happy... More

My partner and I dined here one evening recently and we were somewhat disappointed. We, for some reason, had expectations of a fine dining restaurant. These expectations weren't meet, except in regards the price. The place has a great atmosphere, being set in an old character house. But it's more in the style of a cafe feel, especially with a...

Moreover, we appreciate every feedback and would definitely work on... More

We had a table of 10 and all of us thought our food was average, from the lamb, pork belly and vegetarian meals. Not a lot of taste and just not the standard we expected at all. I had Calamari which was tough and chewy, my mussels were covered in vinegar. Staff were lovely but will not be back for... More

We were at the restaurant with a group from work. The staff seemed to struggle with the numbers even though we had booked and given numbers prior to arrival. In my estimation the restaurant has gone down hill since it started many years ago. Ownership has changed and it has not maintained it's excellent service and quality. For this kind... More
