Arrived in a very sleepy Timaru on a Friday morning, stunning day sunshine galore, headed up to Bay Hill for a breakfast found Fusion open, ordered the French Toast and an Americano coffee. I was surprised how small the portion of the French Toast was in fact quite disappointed, I thought for 17 dollars I could have got a mixed... More

Routine breakfast stop between Christchurch and Timaru. We were hungry and knew the cooked breakfast at Fusion would do the trick. We dined with another couple and between the four of us we ordered 3 x pan breakfasts and an eggs benedict. We chose a table near the window and enjoyed the sun streaming through on a cold morning. Our... More

We went for lunch, with an energetic 2.5 year old. She ran all around the restaurant while I TRIED to tame her. The lovely lady serving us gave me her baby chino early to settle her down. That entertained her for approximately a minute. Then we were back on the go, with my little tornado throwing things around, again the... More

5 star food. So delicious, also had the polenta fries as an entree and this is the reason I couldn't eat my mine. The steak was so big! But tasted amazing and cooked perfectly to my liking. Atmosphere let the place down as was so quiet even with the place 1/2 full. If u want quiet dining then it's ideal

We had time to kill on a cold evening in Timaru, so decided to give Fusion a go based on recommendations from others. Glad we did, it was the most enjoyable meal out we've had for a very long time. The menu is great - just the right amount of choice and variety. And the food surpassed all our expectations... More

The lamb dish, which was their entry to a competition, was lovely and pink and served with perfectly cooked polenta chips. The size of the mains meant having a desert was a possibility, although I decided not to in the end. The staff were attentive but not overly pushy, and all seemed to genuinely enjoy being there. Some of the... More

One of the very few decent dining options in Timaru - Nicely decorated and food and service are consistently good - Hits the sweet spot between pub food and fine dining. Also a nice place to have a leisurely coffee and brunch on a Sunday morning

Thank AJ B
