“Good place for drinks!”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

It is a good place to catch up with friends and have a nice drink. I never went there for lunch or dinner so I am not sure how the food is like, but if you want to go out to see people and have a good time on the weekends this is the place!

“relaxed, fun and good food”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

Amazing service at this trendy, relaxed and good food restaurant. The fish of the day (swordfish in my case) is also very well cooked - medium rare - as good as the lamb (Moroccan style at Number 4). The local beers on tap are also premium choices - for a lay-back, relaxing, good dinner among friends, the NUmber 4 is a nice choice!

“Great place!”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

This is owned by the hospitality legend of Christchurch, Rob Mercer. It's located at the wannabe place of Merivale. People in this suburb in general is rather stuck-up. No. 4 is rather lovely to spend your whole afternoon in. It has an okay selections of mainstream beer and food choice. The staff is impeccable. That being said, I have friends that were turned away from the place just because there are Asians! It all comes down to the waiting staff that's on roster during that time. Apart from that, Rob has and is been excellent in creating a fantastic business model and this one hits the mark!

Thank you for your review. Rob is very flattered to be called a legend.

We find the comments about not letting Asians in very disturbing. We are and have always been open to all Ethnicities as customers and guest at No.4.
