“Great food, great service, great decor.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 December 2012 via mobile

Recently holidayed in new Zealand and came across this restaurant by accident.wow, we were impressed.the food was second to none with so many good flavours going on.the staff were so attentive with a good knowledge of the menu and had plenty of time to chat.the overall atmosphere in the restaurant was relaxed but it was still classy.if it wasn't for the fact that I live in the UK I would be visiting this restaurant often!

“Excellent choice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 December 2012

I was never such a fan of the old Dux but the new is something fabulous to add to our slowly developing city. The food was hard to fault, including coffee. I can thoroughly recommend the Crab for brunch, outstanding. This sort of quality I only usually enjoy in Wellington and Auckland, well done! Lots of choices for seating, sun, shade or inside with enough space between tables where you didn't feel you were sharing your meal and conversation with those beside you. The staff were faultless and attentive with an obvious pride in the new establishment. Parking wasn't so easy but the side street offered good numbers with a short walk. I'll be back!

“Really disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 December 2012

Really wanted to have a good meal cause used to love the dux de lux. Wait staff said they would bring out menus, had to go inside to request someone to take our orders and for menus. Ordered haloumi salad.. It arrived without tomatoes which I had to ask wait staff for.. Had to ask for knife and fork 3 times. Water for the table several times. Salad had no dressing on it.. Very bland but was so tired of requesting things gave up and ate it as was. I'm not fussy but worst food and service i've had in chch post earthquake. Friends ordered pizzas which were fine. Very very disappointed.
