Pescatore does not offer a children’s menu. Please consider 50 Bistro if you would like a family friendly dining option.
Excellent experience. We highly recommend the 10 course degustation (with wines of course). One of the best dining experiences in Christchurch. Expensive, but totally worth it.
Stunning all round; it's seldom we encounter the congruence of exquisite cuisine, a wonderful location and an intimate atmosphere, but tonight we found it. The food was truly inspired and inspirational, bravissimo
The sommelier of the night, Keith Larson was awesome.
The food and service are impeccable, really a five star rating 😊
Great service with cosy and comfortable environment. Thoroughly enjoyed the food would highly recommend to others.
A fantastic evening celebrating some long service milestones for staff. Wonderful food and top class service from Keith. Couldn't ask for a better venue.
Fantastic flavour journey accompanied by friendly service.
Pescatore provided an exquisite one of a kind experience. The chef was exceptional and the food was sumptuous and satisfying. We were very pleased with the wonderful young manager whom attended to us as well as the professionally polished waiter. Pescatore is a place we'd highly recommend to anyone whom appreciates sublime fine dining. Our table was lovingly set with a superbly scenic view of Hagley Park. Many thanks for the memorable mouthwatering memories.
Great knowledgeable friendly service
Great food and service. Excellent evening all round, thank you.
Everything was beautiful
Absolutely stunning meal, the benefit of being one of only three tables was the attention was fantastic, however it did take away from the atmosphere
My husband and I have dined extensively at top restaurants in France and thought that Pescatore provided Michelin Star quality food, wine and service—the only question is, ‘1 star or 2’? Creative degustation menu paired with some unusual yet exciting wines made for a dining experience. Keith, our waiter, provided such superb hospitality and service that it enhanced our enjoyment of the entire meal. Bravo! Those Two Hats are well deserved.
Excellent menu with innovative and inspired ingredients, a truly gastronomic experience.
Fantastic food, brilliant presentation and excellent service. I'd eat there everyday if I didn't have to declare bankruptcy or sell my kidney on the black market
The 10 course degustation was a brilliant start to my weekend in Christchurch with family and friends. This is an experience, like opera under the stars. Where every dish compliments the previous dish but also exceeds the dish in the same note. The service was impeccable and like all great restaurants, very accommodating to all our needs. Thank you to all the staff at Pescatore for such a wonderful evening, we will definitely dining here again in the near future. Beaudine
We had a great evening at Pescatore. The food was superb and service friendly and attentive.
Great food, wonderful service.
I enjoyed every course of the degustation. Crafted with great detail and thought. The service from all the staff was above and beyond expectations. Thoroughly enjoyed my evening. My only comment is that the 2 red meat dishes seemed a little out of place - be bold and stick with the theme of the restaurant - it is called Pescatore afterall!
Absolutely Devine, will definitely come again
We had a lovely evening. The service was impeccable and the food was amazing overall. However there are very little choices for dessert (only 3) and we tried the preserved cherries and cream and that didn't really appeal to us. The various "snacks" presented to us during the evening were fun and delicious. We were both really impressed with our starter of slow cooked organic egg yolk as well. Overall a very enjoyable evening.
Amazing restaurant - great service - great wine list - our meal was simply outstanding.
The service and food were second to none. Stunning food and presentation. Loved every minute.
Have dined here a few times previously tonight was a degistation The food the service and the knowledge provided with every course Was outstanding thank you for an amazing experience would highly recommend🤪brudenot2
Excellent service which completely made the night. Perhaps too much seafood/seafood inspired dishes but overall everybody enjoyed their evening and it was a great way to celebrate the special day. A special mention to our waiter Keith who was absolutely outstanding
