Had a lovely meal here. They had one of my favourite Chardonnays on the wine list. They were also in the Canterbury Entertainment Book. The shared bread starter was really delicious. My partner had the fish & chips for a main and I had the starter sized popcorn chicken (yummy) with a side of fries. The staff were friendly &... More

I came here for lunch with one other person for a special occasion. Fusion is stylish and the service slick and professional. Excellent food and BIG glasses of wine. I had the chicken salad - very tasty. The upmarket fish and chips were also impressive, as was the spot-on creme brulee. The menu is straightforward offering adequate variety. Meals are... More

We had a lovely birthday lunch at Fusion on a clear and sunny winter day. Views of the Bay and snowcapped mountains were spectacular. Service and food were excellent. I can thoroughly recommend Fusion for exquisite and beautifully-presented food, attentive service and prime location,

This fabulous little boutique restaurant was chosen by my partner's sister, a local to Timaru. The service really was excellent, even though staff were quite new. Meals were delicious, the stand out being the beef! There is truly something special about the freshness & quality of New Zealand produce. Absolutely second to none. Lovely atmosphere, reasonable prices, delicious menu &... More

Had a lovely meal with great service. VIP style. A little noisy when more people were dining, but enough room between tables to enjoy.

There were too many delicious choices on the menu. Presented beautifully and very tasty. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. We were not rushed at the end of the evening even though we were the last table there.

We enjoyed a great lunch looking out over the bay. My salad had some yummy ingredients. The chicken was tasty with a lovely yoghurt dressing.

Fusion is at the top of Timaru's Bay Hill and when the weather is good the outside dining is great because you have views of the mountains and Caroline Bay. We dine regularly at Fusion and the food is always top notch and the staff and service excellent.
