Central location, right opposite the Art Gallery. Love the ambience here, we visited on a Sunday afternoon and took advantage of the $10 Sangria's! We also enjoyed a selection of the bar foods, just delicious! It was cold outside, but the gas fire was going, old movies playing on the tv and so it was a lovely warm atmosphere inside.

We came here on a Sunday for a late lunch. The cafe was very busy which is a good sign. When we asked how long the food would take the front of house staff were patronising and unnecessarily sarcastic, stating 'well that depends on what you order' - a somewhat unexpected answer when a cafe is busy and you have places to be. The staff seemed rushed of their feet and frantic even when taking our order. That being said the food was still very nice but don't expect a typical meal to be just that - some meals come with polenta fries and seaweed fries instead of your usual potato chip. The gnocchi was lovely. A lovely meal - a shame the staff ruined the beginning of it.

We had a business dinner here and I must say the service was very quick and professional, the ambient is lovely and the food was absolutely delicious. Good selection of wine and the fireplace add their value too.

Hard to find restaurants and bars in CHCH CBD with all the new construction. But we found this one and it turnout to be as good as it read online. Great atmosphere nice fires, good beer and wine selection. Went at night and public holiday and was busy but did get a table with a wee sit at bar. Menu true NZ produce selection from the Sth Island and every thing was so yummy. Lamb and salmon was amazing and the desserts were real good too. Service was continuous so no empty water or wine glasses. Would go back and even would try it in the day for lunch as so nice,
