We had dinner here on a Saturday night. The restaurant had great atmosphere. While everything seemed closed in the area, Fiddlesticks stood out from the crowd. The food was delicious and hearty. We were given a free drink on arrival because they couldn't seat us the night before as a walk in. Bookings recommended. Great service. Reasonably pricey but totally worth it. Would go again. Fiddlesticks would be a great place to host a party or gathering.

Strategically placed in the (nearly) spring sunshine, a tempting watering hole after exploring the rigours of the re-build in Christchurch. We enjoyed our sustenance so well we returned the next day for a second bite. Highly recommended!

If you want good food and great service, this is the place to go to. It's better to make a reservation if you plan to go on a Fri or weekend.

The reason why I didn't give it a five stars rating is mainly due to the smaller than usual starter portion. For the price you pay for, you would have expected the portion to be similar to other restaurants. However, the starter was really good. Perhaps good things come in small portions.

This seemed like a popular meeting up place where old friends meet up for dinner and drinks. During my dinner, saw a group of young office ladies meeting up for dinner.

This is certainly one of our very favourite restaurants which maintains a very high standard. Food is great, staff and service excellent. It's best to sit in the inner restaurant on a cold night. My only criticism is the noise factor and that can be horrific if you get a table of six or seven noisy people.
