A local friend dragged us out to this place down the other end of town. Looking at the exterior and the musty old house smell in the door did not hint at the evening of culinary delights we would experience. Great to experience such awesome, knowledgeable and courteous staff. The wine list was excellent and the food was perfection, worth... More

Was in a group of about 30 celebrating a milestone birthday. The food was superb, menu choices were excellent. Everybody was served within a good timeframe and enjoyed a lovely meal, fine wines and the staff were extremely helpful & knowledgeable about the menu & beverage choices. The setting is elegant and is a heritage building well looked after. Has... More

A nice meal but very small in portion size. This is the second time we have been and it will be the last. Fine dining is one thing, but going away hungry is not appreciated by either of us.

Great night out here with a group of friends. Although we had booked in for 745 we were not rushed to our table - sat at around 830. Our waitress was amazing fantastic service with a good sense of humour which was great for our group. the food was very good. The scallops are worth getting.

We went to Elegance on Elles for our 25th anniversary dinner. From the call to make the booking, the staff were friendly and efficient. When we arrived, the table was set with a handwritten card. The entrees were superb, the seafood chowder packed with yummy bits and the Italian pastrami "ham sandwich" utterly delightful. The mains of pork fillet and... More

If you want a night to remember in Invercargill then this is the restaurant that is a 'must' if you want all the little extras at no extra cost. The staff are absolutely amazing and offer many services that you would expect in a 'very high class' restaurant. The chef is even likely to make an appearance. The food is... More

Two of us were there for dinner on a Thursday night and the restaurant was just busy enough. We chose to sit in the bar area first to enjoy a predinner drink - a very nice martini complete with three stuffed olives was enjoyed. We were then escorted to our table. We shared an Italian Taster - very tasty and... More
