“Much much better”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

Had been before and it was only ok, but this time there was so much more to enjoy. A really great meal, and we only had two courses. Service was good, and the only complaint that I would have was that myself and the next table had to go to other tables to get the salt shakers as ours were empty. Not much of a draw back considering the beautiful meal.

“Great place for the family event we went to.”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

It was a 60th birthday surprise, and and even greater surprise when the husband told his wife that they were going to renew their wedding vows.

Staff were attentive, but not instrusive. It was a great night.

“OK but not great....”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

After hearing so many good stories about Ainos I finally managed to get down there and was looking forward to visiting the steak house. Unfortunately I wasn't that impressed. For a steak house the steak wasn't done as requested and the sauce that came with it wasn't very nice at all. The vegetables that accompanied it looked like they had been sitting in water for quite a while as they looked pale and lifeless. The decor inside really needs to be updated as some parts look really quite shabby. The service was good and friendly but food wise ,sad to say but I wouldn't go back.

“nice meal”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

The decor is starting to look a little jaded, the meal was nice, but possibly could have been a little more on the plate

Last dinner in Invercargill & found this to be a hidden treasure. Order the Blue Cod & mixed berry parfait! Will definitely go back!
