Very Elegant

Very nice restaurant with excellent service. Good but limited choice of dishes available, gluten free also. The restaurant is on the upper level so when booking I recommend that you ask for a window table to take in the views of the park opposite.

What a beautiful building and what a pleasant surprise. While seaching for a vegetarian/vegan restaurant in Invercargill (Subway?), Elegance at 148 was suggested. A full vegan menu was provided and both my husband and I were so pleased by the local and fresh options.

Waitress was very professional and attentive, food was excellent and enjoyed a great conversation with Alan the chef..such a change to see a chef on the floor taking time with his customers.

Lovely service, but the whole experience reminded me of what fine dining was 30+ years ago. Found the food lacked complexity and was overpriced. Take a visit to Rata to see how it is done!!

The restaurant has a lovely aspect and view from the first floor(not ground floor) and caught the evening sun beautifully. The décor is just what you would expect in an old building but we were surprised to find our lovely linen table cloth neatly covered by a sheet of glass. It and the number of children there were a little... More

A pleasant surprise to have a very well trained waitress who was knowledgable about all the meals.The restaurant itself was very classy and the ambiance was lovely....no loud, rough young diners. Would certainly recommend it.

The atmosphere and ambience set the scene for a very pleasant evening. The service and meal was impeccable. We were able to dine at our own leisure and take a break in a quiet area of the restaurant between the entree and main course for speeches. The background music fitted perfectly and the staff were very attentive and polite. It... More

The service at this restaurant was excellent. The staff were well trained, friendly and very professional. The restaurant also functioned very efficiently. My family dined here to celebrate my father's 41st birthday. Even though the restaurant was fully booked, they managed to organise a surprise cake for him. Everything was well taken care of by the staff and my father... More
