The restaurant is perched on the side of a hill providing a beautiful view of the city. The server was very attentive and the food is better than what we expected.
I would recommend the Bruschetta, Steak and Chocolate mousse.

That wasn’t the first visit to The Cup, so we know how excellent it is. We enjoyed sharing from entree, soup, main, dessert throughout.
It was a cold day, had lovely hot wine,
If you eat seafood, must try their seafood chowder!!!
Another great thing is they serve best kids meal.

Being greeted by name is always a good way to start! What an enjoyable experience we had last night at The Cup.
The food, wine and beer which was served in a cool Three Boys glass were excellent. The salmon dish was a very good choice.
The key to the success of the evening, though, was our server!
She kept the whole place ticking over and did so in such a professional, yet natural way. Impressive!

A great dinner vibe with candlelit meal and amazing view. Only thing was it's surprisingly quiet for a Friday night - it can't be too long before this place fills up for dinners!

Wow, super delicious. Definitely keen to go again. My husband had 'the best seafood chowder ever' and my salt and pepper squid was perfect with the tastiest zingy dip mmmm. Our mains were generous and cooked to perfection. Lovely view from the window topped it all off nicely.

The food was excellent, the dinner menu has recently changed so it differs to what is currently showing on the website. We ordered the polenta fries and garlic bread for entree, both were lovely. I ordered the salmon with new potatoes, asparagus and capers - it was delicious and cooked to perfection.
My dining companions both loved their meals - lamb with potato galette and beef with boysenberry sauce. I will be going back again.

Waiting staff very pleasant. Ordered the salmon for evening meal..delicious! My partner had 'Surf n Turf". Found the steak rather grisly. Ordered passionfruit cheesecake with lemon couli. Unfortunately, we both agreed it appeared to be a brought cheesecake like you would buy at the supermarket. otherwise, a lovely night.

We had a wonderful dinner watching the sunset on the mountains. It's a beautiful spot (definitely ask to sit by the window) and the food was fantastic.

We had steak and pork belly, both were really delicious and went down well with their scrumptious sides. Unfortunately too full for dessert but will plan better next time so we can indulge as they looked divine! Fantastic view of Chch and beyond from here.

The day of my booking had turned into a long difficult day. I turned up not really feeling like a night out, but the staff were so lovely, the atmosphere was peaceful and relaxing and I chilled out so much I didn't want to leave when we were done :-) The food was great, compliments to the chef, and the menu is always interesting. My only regret? I had no room left for dessert!

Was pretty good. Menu wasn't as good as it was last time I was here. Dessert menu was probably the let down. The website had a different menu to what was actually there so had my hopes up for some sticky date! Not bad overall everything was quick and efficient.

The stunning view, ambient music & decor were perfectly paired with good wine & AMAZING FOOD! The succulent fried chicken, then the perfectly cooked Rump & divine Choc goodness with delicious raspberry coulis!!

The only suggestion for improvement would be for the lovely young lady who served us to call it a drinks menu not the alcohol menu :P

A memorable dining experience as described by my parents visiting from Italy. The large windows let us appreciate the stunning views over the city, the food presentation was mouthwatering and the flavors were fresh and rich. I've never tasted a better cheesecake. Will come back for more!
