“Great steak”
Reviewed 22 March 2014 via mobile

The ambience is 1960's hotel dining room and the food presentation was a little 1980's, so my expectations weren't high. However the steak was cooked beautifully and the rest of my meal was delicious. If you're staying at the hotel, definitely consider eating here. Friendly staff.

“Emberz Restaurant, Ascot Park Hotel Invercargill”
Reviewed 12 March 2014

We have stayed at the Ascot Park Hotel hotel three times and have dined at the Emberz restaurant for both dinner and breakfast every time. The menu changed slightly each time, but had plenty of dishes which were appealing, from lamb rump to blue cod. Each time, our meals were perfectly cooked. We were especially pleased to eat blue cod as it isn't readily available in Auckland where we live. The staff were always extremely friendly and service was prompt.
I have to say that our last visit was earlier than April 2013, but that was the oldest date available from the pull down facility. However, we were there 3 years in a row during mid January, the last time being in 2012, and every year the restaurant was great!
