Loved the menu and the mains were very, very good! The venison main had very generous portions of venison. There was also great choices of wine available at reasonable prices.

We had a party of 7 and the hype did not meet the expectations. The food was just average. I struggled to put my finger on the issue but I think it was the lack of any point of difference and taste. Service was great and the old movie pica on the wall was a good test of who we... More

I used to love Cook'n' with Gas, but early 2014, wasnt too sure, however, last Saturday in October decided to go back - and yes, glad that I did. Was later told that there had been some changes in the chef/kitchen department. The food was really delicious, plenty of it without 'being too much on the plate'. The entree, -... More

Great cocktails made a great start to the evening. Vegetarian meal a bit bland and unattractive but other meals looked ok and desserts ok also although had to go searching for plates to share..

Came here with work for a dinner which was excellent and then came back with my wife some months later and it was equally as good. It's a place full of character and the staff are good too, sometimes a little slow but when the experience is good that is no matter. The Venison was plentiful and well cooked and... More

We have dined at Cook 'n' With Gas many times over the years and have always enjoyed it. Recently we had our company mid winter Christmas dinner with 10 people around the table. We started with drinks in the Astro bar with live music and then moved through to the restaurant. The food was well timed and delicious and the... More

When in Christchurch, I reserve one night to eat here. It's a short walk down from the George Hotel along the park. I don't know if they accept reservations now, so I just take my chances. Try to sit in the front of the restaurant looking out the window. It's a smaller, warmer-feeling part of the restaurant and you get... More

I booked this restaurant, not knowing where it was or how it was, as I organised a reunion for 20 people in Chch from Australia. We all had the Table d'hôte and everyone loved their meals. I enjoyed the place so much I went back the following week with my daughters, and almost had exactly the same thing. The pheasant... More

What a lovely restaurant. We had our reunion here and it was the perfect venue. The meal was lovely and we had a part of the restaurant to ourselves. It was good value for money $65 for a three course meal. Great drinks selection as well. Thank you for making our reunion dinner a great success!!
