This place is obviously very popular judging from the number off people in their on a Thursday night. I was with a group of people and we had to dine in the bar because the restaurant was full. It's a great atmosphere but very noisy. The food was excellent, especially the confit duck, and you can get used to the sloping floor. Good range of beer on tap, and we all had a great night - recommended.

Hi Rick M
Thank you for reviewing Trevinos. We are thrilled that you had a wonderful experience at Trevinos.
Trevinos is a very popular eatery catering for all budgets, offering great times, great service, great hospitality. The floor is very uneven due to the earthquakes, its becoming iconic as people talk about our floor. Its an authentic earthquake experience! We are awaiting instructions from our Landlord on when the building will be fixed, so its business as usual till then.
We welcome you to come back again and enjoy Trevinos - Looking forward to hosting you
Cheers and vinos from the team at Trevinos

This was a great place to hang with the locals. The outside dining was nice and the food was good. I would recommend this place for a happy hour hangout instead of a dining experience.

Thank you for taking the time to review Trevinos. Trevinos Restaurant & Bar has a large outdoor courtyard with gas fires in a garden setting. Just great for drinks with friends, or move into our bar area with couches, gas fires, bar leaners, wonderful bar atmosphere. We also have a large dining area with booths for that intimate dining experience. It is popular with the locals and Friday nights are huge with drink specials from 5pm and live music till the wee hours of Saturday morning - a great way to start the weekend. To compliment your drinks, we offer Tapas, Bar Snacks, Pizzas or our full a la carte menu - seven days a week all day every day. We also have a private function room if you wanted to celebrate a special occasion.
We will be delighted to host you at any time, and guarantee excellent hospitality.
Trevinos offers Great Food, Great Wine & Great Times - Looking forward to hosting you again soon at Trevinos

I was a bit dubious about eating here, given some of the other reviews. And I was right to be so.
We didn't book, and so were offered a place in the bar. This seemed ok, there were two tables with a couple and a group dinning, so we took a table. The very freindly hostess took our drinks order, and we looked over the menu. It was a little pricy, but we decided on our meals, and placed the order.
Then it went backwards. A group of people arrived who had been to some sports occasion. They were dominated by a loud drunken oaf, who proceeded to rant at the top of his voice, swearing and being generally obnoxious. If we hadn't already placed our order, we would have left.
The meals arrived, and we rushed them down. The meals were nice enough, but the value was destroyed by the loudmouth.
So if you are offered a table in the bar. DON'T take it!

Thank you for taking the time to review our Restaurant & Bar. Trevinos is a very busy upmarket Restaurant & Bar that does take bookings for dining. We do try to accommodate walk-ins as well.
People enjoy dining in our bar with the vibrant scene and ambience, makes it a busy , lively place.
We are sorry that your night was marred by other guests being vocal, perhaps it was a Crusaders game on the big screen and our loyal Cantabrian's were supporting their team or we get a lot of people from Hagley Park back after their team`s efforts on the fields. We support sport in our city and welcome people to enjoy a drink at our premises. I am pleased you enjoyed the food and service. Our staff want you to have a fantastic time, every time
We welcome you to come back and enjoy your next meal at Trevinos. Make sure to book in advance and request a quiet table away from the bar. You wont be disappointed.

It was a nice place unfortunately the floor was with a bit of a slope. The service was normal, it was quite busy with 3 large groups, they forgot to bring drinks to a few different people on our table.
When I finally got my food it looked amazing but unfortunately I found a hair in my food!
The waitress offered me a free dessert.

A little late at writing this review but I still had to do it. Ate here last month the service was fantastic, food was absolutely delicious and great ambience and live music ( which was a little bit too loud) , great size meals at a decent price. I'd definitely go dine at Trevinos again. Thank you team for a wonderful dining experience.
