“Wonderful service and great food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2012

We came across Tiffanys when we were in Christchurch as part of our honeymoon trip. We didn't have a reservation but the staff were very happy to accommodate us.

We loved the ambiance of the restaurant and our waiter was fantastic. Really friendly service. We really enjoyed the food - the scallops, beef and the creme brulee of the the day were wonderful.

We would definitely recommend a visit to Tiffanys for a fantastic meal!

“A Special Occasion Treat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2012

This is actually the second time we (my wife and I) and gone there, the last being some years ago, and was again for a special occasion. On the first occasion, they made quite a fuss about finding out what it was (wedding anniversary) whilst making the reservations, and ensuring we got not only great (and spoilt) service, but a great window view. On this occasion however, trying to book a reservation by phone was impossible since you only got an answering service which did not take bookings, and the only way was to contact them through an email.
I mentioned in my email that this was again for a special occasion (wife’s birthday), but upon arrival at the restaurant, on this occasion, there was no acknowledgement made by the staff that they were aware of it being a special evening, and were not seated in any particular special area (of which there are potentially many).
Its redeeming features were that they had quite an extensive range of good wines which could be bought by the glass, and the food was very good. Yes, it is a little pricy, and the amount served not especially large, but if looked upon as a gourmet restaurant, to be dined at for special occasions (unless you are of the wealthy populace), these minor matters dissipate.
Given that we had a full view of the activities in the kitchen, it could be seen that exceptional care was taken by the chefs in preparing and presenting the meals, and interestingly, while the amounts served may appear small, the sense of feeling well fed and full after a three course meal is very apparent.

“Just perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2012

My partner surprised me for my birthday with a meal at Tiffanys, and it was just perfect. The service by all the staff, presentation of the food, and the food was just delish, melted in the mouth. Would definately go there again for another special occassion if one rose. Big thanks to everyone there who made my birthday very special.

“Excellent dining experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2012

Tiffany’s restaurant in Christchurch is at the height of elegant dining. The ambience, the food, the wine matching, the service – all were a total pleasure and the evening we spent there (6 of us) was a real treat.
Tiffany’s has survived the dreadful sequence of earthquakes that destroyed much of Christchurch’s CBD and the building has come through unscathed.
This is a highly recommended place to dine.
