It looks nice from the outside and so we stopped to look at the menu. Let me first mention that this us in a very touristy section of town--right next to the trolley station. We have younger children (ages 11&7) so the fondue on the menu appealed to them. When we walked up to see about getting a table--a guy with a thick accent (assuming he's Swiss) asked what we wanted. We said we would like a table for four for lunch and he rudely stated that he had nothing for children. I asked, "don't you have fondue?" And he said "hrmmpf--no!" And walked abruptly back into the kitchen. My husband asked me if he was going back to get us another menu or present more options....and I replied "no-I believe we have just been shushed out of his restaurant." And I was right--the owner went back to cooking and muttering in his kitchen. Actually kind of funny in a sick sort of way...I am sure that Christchurch doesn't want itself represented this way to its tourists as it attempts to rebuild from devastating earthquakes. This place is not typical and shouldn't be considered representative of the area. Would recommend not renewing his lease in this touristy part of town.
