This was one of the restaurants I went to when staying for business in Timaru. I had read some of the reviews and still the food was a surprise. I had the big size fillet and it was cooked a perfect fit to my order. The glass of red wine I ordered was just a bit to cold for its... More

I have been to Custom Steak House a few times. One of my favourite fine dining restaurants in Timaru. The food is very nice. The atmosphere is quiet and not too posh. I will go back to this restaurant when I want to treat myself with good food. The owner is usually there and serves customers. He is very professional... More

We had booked a week ahead of our visit, which I was pleased as the restaurant was busy. We had three courses and they were all above standard and amazing, which was what we wanted as we were celebrating a special occasion and it came out in good time. Dessert was even better! Service was attentive and great wine recommendations.... More

Visited on a wet Monday night, we were welcomed into a warm (log fire) and beautifully lit restaurant, a really stunning old building! Great beer and wine list, menu is decent as well. Steak does make up the majority of the menu, but there are some vegetarian choices which is great. Some delicious desserts as well. Most people at our... More

A dinner for two, a Christmas function of 30, a birthday party of 16, this is the best of the best. The food is exquisite, the ambience is very pleasing and the staff are 1st class. I rate tis as the best restaurant in Timaru for that special occasion.

Group of us dined here for our work dinner, and I was very disappointed with the overall experience. For starters, the garlic bread, was very sad and hard, had to apply garlic butter and slice yourself.. My steak was cooked well, but was let down by the fact that the vegetables and fries, which came separately, were cold by the... More

Our Office Christmas Party was held at the Custon House. For a group of 28 people the meal and surrounds were lovely. The white tablecloth set the dining table off beautifully. A three course meal was surpurb - and of course the delicious desert was to 'die for'. Yes, well worth boking and going to for an evening meal.
