“Comfortable place for a relaxing meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2012

This is a great little restaurant for a night out when you want too relax and talk with friends. The atmosphere is inviting and conducive to having conversations and the food is delicious. I had the haloumi main with lentil croquettes, followed by the pumpkin and mascarpone tortellini, and the crime brule

“Excellent food, service and ambience.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2012 via mobile

We visited many restaurants in Christchurch and this was our favourite. A bit more pricey but worth every penny.

“Consistent,tasty & reliable.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2012

We have dined here half a dozen times in the last 18 months, both lunch & dinner. It's always been spot on for the moment.

Good too that a cafe with class is still BYO. You can bring your favourite wine, and the service charge reflects that there is actually service!!

I am being treated to a business lunch tomorrow - guess where we are going.

“Good booths and jazz”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2012

Great venue for a coffee or lunch, didn't try dinner.

Big booths are great for a group meeting or catch up with friends.
