Dropped in tonight without a booking. The restaurant is very clean and modern. Greeted by a smiling waitress who helped us with drinks choices (we're not New Zealanders so don't know the beers and wines that well) and also the dinner choice. We has a superb salmon starter with fish of the day and hand-cut chips, with drinks, served promptly... More

We drive through Timaru a number of times every year. This cafe without fail provides excellent coffee and food, be it a lunch stop on the way through, or dinner. Staff always friendly and helpful, particularly in dealing with my wife's food allergies, gluten and fish. Our go to place in Timaru

We all had the fish of the day and it was really very good. Well cooked, very good accompaniments and good service. The coffee was very good but the choice of cakes and biscuits a bit disappointing. All very much the same as every other cafe. This would be really improved with some trendy stand out options. They need a... More

We turned up early Weds evening without a booking and received a friendly welcome and a table. The restaurant filled up fast after we arrived, with many tables already reserved. Wines were good and we enjoyed the ambiance and our meals. Recommended.

Not the best meal I've ever had but pretty close whilst keeping to a budget. Stunning view onto the bay. My favourite thing about Fusion is going for a coffee in the afternoon - sitting outside and overlooking the bay. That said Dinner for two is pretty nice there also. :)

Food good. Staff a bit over familliar. Spoken to by waitress making sarcastic comments about our menu choices and drinks. Just need waitresses to serve meals and drinks without their opinions
