The evening started with a warm welcome by the friendly and professional staff, sitting near a 'real' open log fire for a pre dinner drink. All of the food was superb in taste and well presented. The staff were perfect and actually applied the standards of fine dining service. The atmosphere was warm, friendly yet professional. The fudge option for dessert was great, I recommend the chocolate mint. The only improvement I could suggest was to have a some soft live music playing, perhaps the piano being? Best meal out in Invercargill so far.

Had the belly pork which was very flavorsome and the crackling was actually crunchy! yum yum. The bread starters were also very tasty too. My sister had the chicken breast which she also enjoyed. We both had desserts. Chocolate lovers which was beautiful, spongy cake on outside and soft gooey middle. Sister had the cheese cake which she loved.
Nice to see the windows are now aluminium, it made a big difference from when I was there last time when they were wooden. Very warm which is appreciated.
Service was also very friendly, efficient but not intrusive. I consider this value for money. Large servings reasonably priced. Thanks again.

We were in Invercargill on business and after a long drive from Dunedin we just wanted a good, tasty dinner that didnt take forever. This restaurant ticked all the boxes - impeccable service - so much so that they even gave us the contact to get some Stewart Island oysters the next day to take to Wanaka. The food was delicious and the chef (owner) and maitre d (his partner) were so lovely and friendly. We wished this was our local. We will back next trip. Thanks - it topped off a very successful stay in the Southland.

I booked a meal with only an hours notice, for a special occasion last night. How surprised we were to be welcomed to our table and find a lovely card from the staff wishing us a Happy Anniversary. The service was excellent without being at all intrusive. And the food was out of this world. I had the steak, which was perfectly cooked and melt-in-the-mouth. My husband had the mussels, which he said were delicious. We both had dessert and my plate arrived out with "Happy 25th Wedding Anniversary" written in chocolate around the edge of the plate. Thank you so much to the staff at Elegance - you made our night really special.

This is one of the best dining experiences. From the time you walk in and welcomed in a friendly manner to the attention of the waitress who remembered all 6 orders without writing anything down. The food was all extremely tasty, beautifully presented, very sufficient size portions. Water glasses were continually filled without interruption and we were well looked after in a relaxed attentive way.
