Went here recently with a group, found staff to be friendly and helpful wine and dinner menues were more than adequate, the meals were excellent being well prepared and withe wonderful flavours. A little bit more expensive than other Invercargill restuarants but well worth it. The dessert menues were the best Iv'e seen for ages.

I was recommended this restaurant by my hotelier two years ago. At that time, I didn't think much of it - snobbish, rather expensive and too empty to be good. This time around, with some help from half a dozen fresh Bluff Oysters (by far the best in New Zealand and some would say in the World), I find Ellegance... More

Two couples enjoyed evening meal here in August. The service was super and the setting wonderful. My meal was scallops which were so succulent and of generous size. The others had bluecod, chicken breast and eye fillet steak which was cooked perfectly. Fresh fruit berry tart for desert was divine with fine slices of strawberry on the side. Cannot wait... More

This is the finest dining experience I have ever had. I was unsure as we are a young family but the staff welcomed us & I made some special requests regarding a meal to keep the children happy & they were very obliging. All of our meals were divine. It was a wonderful memorable evening, so thank you Elegance on... More

Two of us ordered shrimp as a starter, absolutely beautiful presentation and taste. We all ordered a variety of mains and deserts. The first class service and all meals... More

The evening started with a warm welcome by the friendly and professional staff, sitting near a 'real' open log fire for a pre dinner drink. All of the food was superb in taste and well presented. The staff were perfect and actually applied the standards of fine dining service. The atmosphere was warm, friendly yet professional. The fudge option for... More

We were in Invercargill on business and after a long drive from Dunedin we just wanted a good, tasty dinner that didnt take forever. This restaurant ticked all the boxes - impeccable service - so much so that they even gave us the contact to get some Stewart Island oysters the next day to take to Wanaka. The food was... More
