WHAT THEY ARE SAYING ......

‘GREAT VALUE FOOD’  5*-  If you are ready to eat at 5:30, make the most of the Bistro Bites offer. The 5 main meals on the menu are on offer for NZ$20 each providing you eat between 5:30 and 7:00pm. We enjoyed the Coq au Vin with the added side dish of beans with roasted garlic and lentils and it was absolutely delicious. The flavours are beautifully blended and the mushrooms, onions and parsnip mash are the ideal accompaniment for the tender, tasty chicken. This bistro is definitely worth trying - good value and a good selection of wines with friendly, informal Kiwi service.

‘REALLY GOOD COOKING’ 5* - We try to eat here on each NZ trip. I think it has been getting better year-on-year. Very high quality and consistent cooking - "Bistro" undersells it now I think. Very interesting daily specials (including really good hot oyster option). Varied and interesting wine list. I haven't eaten anywhere better in Christchurch.

‘TOWNIES LOOK NO FURTHER, BEST IN SUMNER’  4* - This cafe is underrated (I think because it isn't on the beach) don't be deterred!! It's worth the 200m walk from the beach.
The food is excellent, the coffee is great, the seats have high backs (omg I am so sick of sitting on stalls), they cater for dogs, kids, babies, couples, large groups, intimate, casual, dressy, takeaway, gym clothes
Go in and check it out to see for yourself - as a local - you won't be disappointed (not even bias I have sampled everything)
They also do a great $20 dinner deal between 5-7
Great seating to people watch. Sunny venue and friendly staff
It's a really great vibe - you'll leave feeling satisfied, I do every weekend :-)
