Who would have thought you could find such a world class restaurant in Invercargill, mind you they did bring us Burt Munro. The service is 2nd to none with fun and curtesy you would expect in the high class London or Paris restaurant. Now the food what can i say but melt in your mouth delivered in a timely manner,...

This is amazing a must place to dine. The menu is sensational I had Goat Shank I was in heaven it was so good we went back the next night. You need to book as it is usually packed out.

One of my favourite restaurants when I'm in Invercargill. The bluff oysters were melt in the mouth delicious and their fish of the day dishes are always packed full of flavour! I have yet to have a bad meal here and am always looking forward to my next visit!

Being a local, I have visited the Saucy Chef many times with a variety of group sizes. Food is always phenomenal and prompt, with a great menu choice. The service is also absolutely outstanding! I would go as far to say maybe the best in Southland. Georgia this evening was a star, super friendly and attentive, without being overbearing. Highly... More

Lovely friendly staff but food dissapointing with oysters costing 48 dollars a dozen and far too old but the staff tried very hard to appease taking 11 dollars off the 150 dollar account. Expect pub food at restaurant prices.
