I went to Fusion last night to have dinner ...and to try their oysters. Unfortunately, they didn't have any. And so I went next door to Monteiths for their scallops. Back to Fusion the next morning for breakfast. I always have Eggs Benedict for breakfast - and its interesting to compare across restaurants for that and the multitudinous interpretations out...

Fusion is repeatedly recommended as the best restaurant in Timaru. My husband and I popped in for lunch one day. The food was okay, perhaps a bit overpriced. Service was nice. Maybe it was because we had such high expectations, but I was just a bit disappointed with the whole thing. It's wasn't bad, it just wasn't great.

The welcome was delightful, the atmosphere warm and friendly and the food..........to die for! I don't normally order "fish and chips" in a restaurant. However, the fish of the day sounded lovely so it had to be done! My meal arrived beautifully presented with a perfect portion balance, the freshly made tartare sauce complimented the dish beautifully. Washed down with... More

Great experience. Recommended by a local, Fusion has put a great package together, site, chefs and superb customer service. Chef Tim Dennsion was running the kitchen the cold blustery Friday night I was there. An almost full house did not slow down a well paced service of my courses of sublime flavours and beautiful presentation. Fantastic wines to match with... More

Great spot to stop for breakfast in Timaru to break up the drive. We've done this trip before (Christchurch to Dunners for the rugby) so no need to look at the menu, we knew exactly what we wanted before we even got there. We ordered two pan breakfasts and tea for two and we weren't disappointed. Generous portions, really nice... More

Booked a table for two online at the start of the week for Friday night. I had not heard anything 24 hours out so rang and booked by phone, they then found my email when searching my name whilst on the phone, no apology but not the end of the world. Came to Friday, the restaurant was quite busy as... More

Enjoyed the food and wine on a romantic night out while holidaying in the South Island. Bouillabaisse entree was excellent. Lamb rump and steaks cooked to perfection. Wine list perhaps a little limited given all the great wines there are in the region but those on the list were good (we had the Johanneshof Gewurtz - zingy and fruity). The... More
