We arrived unannounced with a party of 16 plus a baby and the staff handled us very well. The venue is very clean and tidy with outdoor and indoor seating. There was a considerable wait for our food but then we were a large table. I had the chicken salad which was delicious. My mother ordered the seafood chowder and... More

A lovely place to have lunch. Warmed by two fire places and decorated with rustic furniture, it is ideal to sit down after a long walk on Oreti Beach.

On a recent trip to Invercargill we visited Ziff's twice for both Lunch and Dinner. We received great service and the food was exceptional. Meats and fish were fresh and cooked to perfection. We sat out on the deck, a great informal atmosphere and when the evening cooled off the overhead heaters kept us comfortable. Looking forward to visiting again... More

This was my first time visiting this restaurant on a recent trip to Invercargill. Firstly don't be put off by the short drive from central Invercargill. It is well worth it! I visited with my Aunty, Uncle and teenage cousin. Upon arrival we immediately realised we had made a great choice. The atmosphere was perfect - warm, cosy and inviting!... More

Ziffs was a great place to eat and talk with friends. Lovely food and staff were awesome. Lovely atmosphere with music from the TV in the background and wasn't loud thank goodness. Food was not expensive and was delicious. I love this restaurant and will keep going back.
