This restaurant is located in an elegant old house in Invercargill that has been a restaurant for about 20 years. The staff are charming, attentive and the food is excellent. The menu is varied to cater for all tastes and fancies - not extensive but solid, good fare presented with panache. My wife and daughter thoroughly enjoyed our meal here.... More

From a pleasant met and greet, to attentive service staff and superb food: dining at 148 on Elles was a pleasure. A thoughtful, divergent menu with appropriate wine choices noted as well as an indepth beverage list. A resturant you would use for that special ocassion whether as a couple or a large group. Highly recommended.

Family group of 20 met for dinner, was a awesome evening, great food and fantastic service. Drink was accidently spilt by us into one of our main dishes, the response to this was by far the best I've encountered while dining, was dealt with in a extremely customer focused manner

Elegance on Elles offers fine dining and great service in a quiet, relaxing atmosphere. Top quality food. Only downside for anyone elderly or with a physical disability is the restaurant is up stairs, but the effort to get there will be well rewarded.

This unassuming restaurant from the outside provides high quality dining with excellent service. Dining occurs in a spacious area on the first floor of an old house. Would definitely go afain.

For my grandparents 59th wedding anniversary we decided it would be lovely to shout them dinner out. We looked around online (as we live up north) and chose Elegance on Elles. We are so happy we did!! They were treated like royalty and claimed it was the best service and food they have ever had. I can not thank you... More

No wonder you are ranked No. 3 food place in this city. Your food is exquisitely created and presented. Every meal is to die for ! Pricewise- value for money compared to what some other restaurants are charging. Always awesome service. We come here several times a year and these guys never disappoint ! Thank you
