Let the Boss chose the wine for you.

Have had dinner there twice and both time had a very nice meal and the wine that was suggested for our meals was spot on. And the free samples of food that came out was really nice. Will make a new booking to return soon.

My friend and I dined here on a Wednesday night. We were greeted by a lovely waiter and taken to our table which was in a very cosy dining room. We ordered two glasses of wine which came out super fast. I ordered the Pork Belly which was the best I have ever had-it was well worth the price tag.... More

A large house with multiple rooms and a roomy back patio describes this restaurant. The rooms may hold up to 12 people, and are scattered around the house. The service is pleasant and polite. The menu is a bit small, with an emphasis on steak, lamb, and venison. The wine list is s bit overpriced. My one disappointment was the... More

Be prepared to be engulfed in warmth from the moment you open the door to this quaint restaurant set in an early cottage. Tables were set for couples and groups of four. The beverages list was extensive and the waiters well versed in their wines, not hesitating to provide a tasting prior to making your selection (even though we purchased... More

This restaurant was not our first choice but we joined a group who were going there. Although we had not booked a table was available in the rear of the restaurant . This was great as we had the space to ourselves and the noise level was quieter. The main room of the restaurant was very busy when we arrived... More

Our favourite restaurant in NZ! We had a meal here when we visited Christchurch. Recommended by our B and B host we were so glad we took her advice. The restaurant is in one of the oldest buildings in Christchurch (hence why it survived the recent quake) and the decor is warm and inviting. Staff are friendly and the food... More

Loved the food but we were in a small room at a table near a party of three loud and very foul mouthed businessmen

The food is good but thought it was a little pricey. The service was fantastic, the two guys were chatty and helpful and quick off the mark to meet our needs.
