“Multi-visit review!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2013

A while back I spent a week in Alexandra and ate at the Red Brick pretty much every day. So, hand on heart, I can say that this place has a quality, a range and a consistency of food that will not disappoint, and it has a friendly and easy-going atmosphere to boot. The Red Brick would get a "Very Good" in London, but in Alex it definitely stands out as a, "Excellent".

“Quite nice”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2013

Because we have the Entertainment book we decided to use it at the Red Brick. My husband ordered the sausage dish which came out in a very deep bowl which he found difficult to eat his meal. I had the crispy skin salmon, and yes the skin was crispy, but the salmon was over cooked. The mash I think it was, was a purée and only luke warm, but was very tasty. With only 4 people in the place the meals took to long to make. I agree with other reviewers about the staff they weren't around much and had to catch there attention for another wine. Because the food was so tasty and the restaurant cosy we will go back.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review, we appreciate the feedback. I am glad to hear you enjoyed our restaurant and thought our food was very tasty.
Our crispy skin salmon is cooked medium to medium well so that it is cooked through but still moist, we should maybe make this clearer on the menu for those who like it just seared.
Our meals are prepared as quickly as possible but quality is priority, we like our customers to relax and don't like them to feel rushed.
I am disappointed to hear that you thought the service was lacking we pride ourselves on giving excellent service. I will speak to the staff regarding your comments.
Do visit us again next time your in Alexandra, hopefully we will impress. Cheers

“Best Meal in Alexandra!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2013

I went to this restaurant for dinner few weeks ago with a group of friends. As a wine lover, I was pleased to see a strong wine list of NZ boutique wineries. The service was very professional and the food tasty and original. It is definitively not a pub or a cafe but a gastronomic restaurant. This is a great asset for foodies of Central Otago!!

“Excellent meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2013

We enjoyed a beautiful meal on Friday evening at the Red Brick in Alexandra. The flavours of our entree blended so beautifully and our main course was also extremely tasty and very well presented. The meal size was very generous.We would definately go back next time we are in Alexandra.
