Visited for our daughters engagement party, venue was private and very well laid out, food was excellent, well prepared and presented. Staff and service was outstanding from planning to completion as nothing was a problem for Kirsten and her team. They also went out of their way to accommodate guests personal requests. We would throughly recommend this venue to anyone... More

Large helpings and friendly staff are what made this memorable for me. I enjoyed the Roaring Meg wine to accompany my stuffed chicken breast, which was delicious. My friend had pork and scallops, which was also enjoyed. We didn't have room for dessert!

It is almost two years since I last wrote about Becks although I visit more often as it is my local. This time, we tried something we have always been going to do: have an entree and a dessert, along with a wine of course. All meals were tasty, well presented, reasonably priced, and quite enough in quantity. The place... More

4 of us enjoyed our stay but felt over priced for what we got - meal was ok but steaks were average - salad was mostly lettuce which is a annoying thing I find a lot

This is a local for us and after a bad experience last year we thought to give it a go again. Just the smaller part of the restaurant was occupied but service was slow. I saw the fish and chips (3 good size pieces of fish) come out to client at another table so that is what i ordered. My... More

We visited Saturday night for a night out, a meal, and because we were told the band was very good. The bar at Becks has a great range of beers including some very nice craft beers on tap. We spent some time there watching Otago beat the Hurricanes and then moved through to the restaurant so now I'll start with... More

Shame about this place, I'm not an expert on hospitality business bit I'm sure this place is poorly managed. All the waiting staff were pretty good but we waited such a long time for our food it was ridiculous. To be fair there was a large group that night, when my food eventually came the Calamari salad was excellent, I... More

We have had a meal here before and found it very good so this experience has only resulted in a Average experience, because if this had been my first time it would have got a terrible rating. The steak I ordered was full of grizzle and I couldn't cut it let alone chew it when I spoke to the lady... More

The restaurant at Becks was jam-packed, happy diners on a Sunday evening: there was a short wait for a table so we had a drink in the bar and perused the menu. Options included weekly specials, pastas, fish of the day, steaks, pork ribs and herb-crusted lamb rump, most meals priced from around $28.00: an extensive wine list offers New... More

We were the only ones dining this Saturday 26 September. We arrived @ 11.30am and were to dine at noon. The dining room was depressingly empty. I believe the reason this place is let down is absolute lack of service. The bar man showed us to our reserved table and then a Wait Person came over.....however...... We were not even... More
