I had an amazing food experience at this place and can see why it is rating so highly. The scallop and white fish ceviche was delicious and the 12 hour merino lamb to die for. It is an exceptionally large dish which isn't obvious on the menu and although there were only two of us I would say it suited... More

Aralumblue, Firstly, thanks for your kind words regarding our food, we strive to only produce delicious fare, and I'm glad you enjoyed what you ate. Secondly: Regarding the Lamb. I am confused as to your remark that the size of the Lamb wasn't obvious from the menu, as it is listed as: "Whole 12hr Braised Merino Lamb Shoulder." This would... More

We visited on a Sunday lunchtime and promised ourselves we would book for an evening meal. So returned on a Saturday night as a group of four. Food was very good (3 pork mains and 1 steak). Nobody out of the three liked the crumbed Pork morsel but the main Pork element was fantastic. The only downside was the extra... More

TheSnakebite Thanks for your kind words, we really appreciate the feedback, and in this instance it is highly valuable. Firstly, I would like to apologise for the service you received. We have recently employed a new team and there are several points made in your review that made it immediately apparent to me that there is further training required. Secondly,... More

We visit the Monday Room at least once every week or two & always have a great experience be it brunch or dinner. Coffee is always perfect and such a wide range of drinks which are all a wee bit unique. Plus the staff are super wonderful! Best brunch in Christchurch for sure.

We were given the best Christmas present ever - a Gift Voucher for a meal for two. We had not been before, but I had read that the restaurant had changed hands at the end of 2016. It was simply the best food I have ever eaten in Christchurch. The staff are knowledgeable and happy to advise the best combinations.... More

Went with friends and chose the Chefs menu which consists of plates to share. Very tasty well cooked food. Interesting combinations too with manuka honey featuring in two of the entrees. Particularly good and interesting was the churros for starters. If you want good local food with some interesting twists that you may not have thought of definitely a good... More

Call ahead. We went today to experience brunch and the place was closed. We had read online that they opened at 10:30am so we planned our morning around it. No signage explaining hours at the location. Disappointed that we couldn't try it as it had been highly recommended to us for brunch.

Thanks so much for taking the time to write your review. You have raised some concerns with us, that I will now address. Firstly, If indeed you had planned your morning around visiting our restaurant, then you could have perhaps taken your own advice and called ahead. You would have found that we had an outgoing voice message that stated... More
