After a very disappointing meal the night before Fiddlesticks was a lovely surprise. The venue, staff, service and quality of food was everything you would expect from a top class venue. It was a lovely way to spend a Father’s Day brunch, thank you.More
Fiddlesticks was a rainy evening in Canterbury perch that did not disappoint. The restaurant/bar was selected because seafood was on the menu. And, there were 3 main dishes to choose from. The midwek special was unusual -- Hake with prawns and calamari in a marinara sauce, which was surprisingly delicious as was the Akaroa salmon. the steak was yummy too. And all accompanied by a 2º pinot noir from Otago that was quite fine too. Dessert of homemade maple almond and carrot cake ice cream most sweetly was the perfect finish.
We had bar service ordering a Braised lamb burger and the pea spinach and feta risotto. Both thoroughly enjoyed our meals while also enjoying a glass of red in the warm and cozy atmosphere. Staff very friendly. Highly recommend.More
Delicious food and very friendly staff. We ordered the lamb and salmon, fresh and well cooked. The wine was also very good.
My wife her brother and his wife and I dined at Fiddlesticks on Wednesday 12th evening for my wife’s birthday. The service was outstanding and we all thoroughly enjoyed our evening there. The food was - as always - next level and we couldn’t fault anything that night. Although we hadn’t been there for a few months the new menu was comprehensive and catered for all tastes. The wait staff were very knowledgeable and very prompt and very polite with their service. This is our most preferred venue to dine in in the city and. We will be back again soon for another celebratory evening Please pass in our grateful thanks to the staff for their service and to chef and team for fantastic meals Thanks and we look forward to going back again soon
This is a fine-dining house with a very relaxed, pub-like vibe and we had a WONDERFUL dinner here! Unlike many restaurants in NZ, Fiddlesticks serves normal-size portions (most restaurants we visited served enough for 2 or 3)! My fish Main was served with roasted whole carrots and beetroot hummus … and a feta emulsion that still makes my mouth water! Our server was friendly and attentive without being intrusive. Oh, and their house wine was delish!
The chorizo and jalapeño hash with egg and the salmon open faced sandwich with egg were wonderful. They had great drink deals as well for a more boozy lunch!More
