Established in 2016, the drive behind Bessie was to create a meat focused restaurant with the ability to win the taste-buds of every Cantabrian. Serving up world class local produce and a selection of fine wines from around the globe, Bessie serves both as a destination for those special occasions whilst for others it feels like their local. Be surrounded by our cutting edge interiors and absorb the vibrant yet intimate space,whilst we deliver you consistently outstanding service and a truly unique dining experience. Making no apology for our love of meat, our restaurant features a meat room - a place of work and celebration of the main event - and with our menu showcasing top graded cuts of meat from nose to tail, there is even something for the more adventurous here. Let Bessie create you an experience to remember.
Excellent waitress, put right her mistake with a friendly attitude. Great loungey vibe. Will be back!
Very tasty food & wine in a lovely atmosphere.
Loved everything but I think I have a weak stomach to seeing cows hung up on display while eating I know it’s a meat restaurant and everything else was amazing loved the food but just that one thing I didn’t really like.
Great meal great steak really awesome venue. Would definitely go again.
Excellent service _ staff are always awesome. Third visit for us. Great food and atmosphere.
The food was excellent but pricey, but those two are entitled to go hand in hand.
Amazing food, and such lovely people 😀
Very good food and service. Will be back
Bessie my favourite restaurant in Christchurch and I have dined there many times. They only thing that could increase my enjoyment would be to stock Pimms in the bar. Will most definitely be back.
The food and service were excellent and we had a great experience. It is great to go to a place which maintains consistently high standards.
Fantastic food and service!
Please let the waiter know we were very very pleased with her service. It was outstanding!! She was personable, professional overall best service at a restaurant Thank you very much
The Waitaha Wagyu was delicious and I am obsessed with the seaweed butter as a sauce!!
I wanted to take my partner on a surprise date and chose Bessie. I've never been there before and didn't know what to expect but the menu looked promising and the reviews gave a good impression. We thoroughly enjoyed our date and my partner was so excited about the food he was dancing in his sit! I would recommend Bessie to any meat lover!
Best lamb shoulder ever!
Absolutely delicious, from start to finish.
Loved everything about Bessie.
Absolutely loved it!! Can't wait to come back. The only thing I would say is I love it when my napkin gets laid on my lap and I didn't like the carrots... But that's personal preference, my husband loved them!
Steak, Fish & Clams were all beautiful. What a stunning piece of meat & the way it was cooked, wow!!!
Spectacular evening, thank you!!
Found the restaurant a little dark and far too noisy for our liking however the service and food was great.
We entertained a large customer and all had a great night. Service was great as was the food. If you haven't been before we recommend it.
The steaks were amazing and Lucinda was exceptional! Thank you for a great dining experience.
