My Japanese customers thoroughly enjoyed our night with you. Stephanie was fantastic. Perfect. My guys were Chefs, Restaurant and Resort Owners and they were extremely impressed. Many thanks.
We enjoyed the atmosphere and the lady who served us was lovely but it was disappointing after seven courses that the two men in our group left hungry, we needed to stop for them to grab something else to eat on the way home. Other than that we had a lovely time and enjoyed the meals.
A wonderful evening with discreet attentive service and excellent food. I have visited before and will definitely be back again.
Outstanding food and service
Staff were very accommodating and very knowledgeable. It was a pleasure to dine with you and we had a wonderful time.
A perfect way to celebrate a special occasion. Food beautifully presented in small, but delicious and intensely flavoured, servings. When my dessert choice proved to be not to my liking (despite having been warned by wait staff that it was a dessert for adventurous diners) it was replaced at no cost for another dessert. All staff friendly, engaging and helpful, but also unobtrusive. Some extra unexpected treats were a nice gesture and added value to our experience. Keen to revisit to try the next menu.
Tasty salmon dish, but could do with something textured on the plate. All the food beautifully cooked and presented.
Great restaurant. Attentive staff. Great food most of all. Worth a visit. I will come back for sure
Throughly enjoyed food and wine matches. Staff were really friendly and made our night really special
An excellent dinner. The blending of flavours was incredible. Impeccable service. We were so well looked after we didn’t want to leave! We’ll certainly be back.
We had a lovely evening, the staff were so knowledgeable and willing to share. It was a pleasurable evening.
We had the 5 course degastation & it was absolutely beautiful, but each of the courses where much to small. Beautiful but tiny.
Always at the top of their game.
Outstanding, as always. The best restaurant in Christchurch. Will return at the first opportunity.
It was so good as usual. The scampi sandwich was to die for and the oyster filled nasturtium were absolutely devine. Service was superb. We will be back 🙌
We ate here when we stayed at the George hotel at the end of our honeymoon. We had the 5 course tasting menu with wine pairing. The food and wine were fantastic. Great service from friendly and knowledgeable staff. Would definitely recommend for a special occasion.
An outstanding dining experience. The food was imaginative and tasted divine and the service matched the food. Well deserving of the 2 hats held by the restaurant. We will most certainly come again when we travel through Christchurch again.
Excellent service, our waiter was very knowledgeable particularly on wines the overall experience was great as usual. Look forward to our next dining experience
The Pescatore is the pinnacle of dining in Christchurch... the service is exemplary - and then there's the food... go on a degustation journey and you'll feel like you've travelled to a very special place - eating extraordinary food - all with a story to tell... say no more, book now!
Wonderful dining experience- like a night at the theatre.
Fantastic evening with outstanding service and the food was just amazing. We love it thank you 😊
We had a wonderful night, the seven course degustation was excellent, we particularly appreciated the matched NZ wines, our waiter and sommelier Callum was excellent, his knowledge and enthusiasm for both the food and wine shone through.
