Delicious food. Very nice staff. Asked for a glass of wine (175ml), but it looked like 250ml, but for the same price! Wish we had been in Christchurch longer to go back.

From the wasabi cream, pickled radish and lamb amuse to the last piece of venison belly, the whole meal was amazing. The duck soup was my favourite. So so good. The tragedy is that the souo is not on the next menu . Life changing
