Great lunch

We tried Fusion for lunch on a drive from Dunedin to Christchurch, and I'm really glad we did! We had excellent pork tacos, accompanied by avocado, salsa, and apple slaw. We also enjoyed a good coffee. Lots of tempting desserts, which we managed to deny ourselves. The service was friendly and... read more

Nice location and had a good vibe so we stopped in, and found a table free. Shared the ceviche for an entree, could be better if the fish was thinly sliced instead of chunks but the flavours were great. Pork belly tacos as a main were excellent and the chicken salad also received high marks. Not an exciting wine list... More

Fantastic. Great sea view, very friendly and helpful staff with a smile and my market fish and chip meal was awsome. Great coffee. A must next time I am passing through. Well done.

Went for lunch. Lovely outlook and atmosphere but my husband's meal was almost inedible. Chose the fish and chips - the wedges were so thick they were dry inside, the coleslaw was smothered in mayonnaise and tasteless - fish ok. My meal - fish of the day was nice but not fantastic. Dessert - 'bambinoes' for husband consisted of three... More

The menu is rather dominated with fried food although we picked the grilled fish option which was rather good and a lot healthier than some of the other options. Limited craft beer choice and the outdoor pavement setting was rather splendid on a hot day.

We went for a light meal and I had the Haloumi Salad as an entree. It was full of delicious flavours and was huge considering it was an entree

We were glad that this restaurant was opened on New Year's day. We enjoyed the lunch food.. The beef salad was superb and also the soft pork taco.. The popcorn chicken was also good.. The fish and chips were so so.. Batter too heavy.. The ice tea was too sour because i think it was mixed with bottled orange juice..... More
