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

We visited Elegance at 148 on Elles last week with our end of dairy season staff function. There were 7 of us in total and it was a mid week function. 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

Had the belly pork which was very flavorsome and the crackling was actually crunchy! yum yum. The bread starters were also very tasty too. My sister had the chicken breast which she also enjoyed. We both had desserts. Chocolate lovers which was beautiful, spongy cake on outside and soft gooey middle. Sister had the cheese cake which she loved. Nice... 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

I booked a meal with only an hours notice, for a special occasion last night. How surprised we were to be welcomed to our table and find a lovely card from the staff wishing us a Happy Anniversary. The service was excellent without being at all intrusive. And the food was out of this world. I had the steak, which... More

This is one of the best dining experiences. From the time you walk in and welcomed in a friendly manner to the attention of the waitress who remembered all 6 orders without writing anything down. The food was all extremely tasty, beautifully presented, very sufficient size portions. Water glasses were continually filled without interruption and we were well looked after... More

A group of friends went here last week and we all had a fabulous meal. No one was disappointed in any way, quite hard among 8-9 people. My own choices were delicious, the Italian Taster plate with a chick pea salad followed by an indulgent dessert of rum soaked raisins. It could not have been better. The staff were all... More
