Nice balanced flavours and although an early dinner and busy bar patrons, service was great.
Another lovely evening, very good service and food
The food was very nice but the restaurant was very noisy and very cold as the door kept being left open. The service wasn't up to standard as we had to wait a long time for our order to be taken and weren't told what the soup and fish of the day were. We had to ask for the dessert menu and then when the dessert was delivered we had no cutlery and I had to go and ask for some. Very disappointed with our experience. Maybe during the week things would be better with less people around.
Absolutely delicious fish of the day dish with roast veggies. The duck was equally as delicious. Looking forward to coming back to try more dishes.
Excellent Fathers Day brunch, 10 of us and all thoroughly enjoyed it. The service was excellent & so was the food. Had become one of our favourite restaurants in Christchurch.
Comfortable sitting inside or outside depending on the weather and service friendly and helpful.
Attentive and pleasant happy staff with great service and excellent food great night had by all. Realistic prices and good wine list, well for to the Aikman team. CK
Didn't appear to be a huge selection of mains but we were pleased with our choices all the same. Wished they came with sides rather than having to order separately. Surprised so many customers already eating when we arrived for First Table. Good atmosphere and lovely friendly service. Would definitely recommend and come back
Great server today, didn’t get her name but very friendly & helpful
We dined with a First Table voucher so it was value for money.The Sangria was delicious and we had a lovely combination pf starters to go with it.I liked that even though we were First Table we were not rushed to vacate the table and so had a glass of wine too.
Starters were good. Duck mains were too small and basic, not worth the money. Steaks were not cooked as asked. Desserts basic but good. Apple crumble was average. Enjoyed it but over priced for what it was.
Highly recommended. Service is excellent, food is delicious. Unfortunately tap, not filtered, water was served and water is chlorinated, so ruined it a bit. And it was a bit noisy for our anniversary dinner, but I supposed, it only indicate that this place is very popular. Overall highly recommended and will come back again.
Great vibe and friendly service.Thankyou
We had such a lovely delicious meal at Aikmans last night. The drink selection was huge and the food was incredible
Excellent dining experience. Expectations well exceeded. Our waitress, Billie, was professional yet friendly. Top notch food, very well presented. We'll be back. Thanks for an enjoyable evening. 10/10.
Excellent, friendly efficient service and delicious food. Lovely atmosphere with very comfortable seating and spacious tables. Felt quite private even though there were plenty of other diners. Will visit again.
Food was superb!
Lovely slow cooked lamb, and broccolini were fab! However we were surprised that there were no roast potatoes included with the meal, so ordered them once we had the lamb! Hubby loved the spuds once they arrived. Our grand daughter loved her chicken hamburger and fries😀
We were a large party. All the meals arrived in a timely manner. The food was superb and everyone enjoyed their meal. Several of us had the steak. However we found that they weren't quite cooked enough and were far too big (no one ate their whole steak). Took the rest home for the dog to eat! Thanks for a great evening.
Staff are all lovely. Great service tonight. Relaxing!
Massive thank you to the team at Aikmans! I had my 30th on Saturday night and the staff were awesome and we all really enjoyed ourselves. Thanks team!
Best steak I have ever tasted.
Staff were extremely helpful and kind. Service was great. Food came out very fast considering how busy they were and not only that it was delicious. Great spot and was exactly what we were looking for for our group! Will be back for sure :)
