Reviews

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.

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!

Staff were friendly, service was at just the right pace and the views across Halswell to the Southern Alps are beautiful. Parking across the road was easy.

The menu has a good range of varied offerings.

We began with a classic creamy seafood chowder, followed by chicken stuffed with apricot and cream cheese, and salmon with a mandarin garden salad. Accompanying vegetables included green beans, caramelised carrots and crispy potatoes, all of which were delectable.

Because we shared a single entree, we still had room for dessert. Karyn had a cracking creme brulee and my sticky date pudding was a very generous portion.

Sauces for all dishes were served in a pouring pot, which is great because you can add as much or as little as you like, to suit your taste (and it's sort of cool).

There's Three Boys IPA and Pilsner on tap, along with a selection of other beverages.

Food presentation was excellent and the space is great for couples or friends and family. We're definitely intending on returning, and have recommended this venue to lots of friends and colleagues already.

Delicious meal at the Cup. Enjoyed the salmon. Cooked beautifully. Creme brûlée divine as usual. Only one waitress doing a stirling job in a very full restaurant. Felt sorry for the young lady. Will return and take in the sights of ChCh again.

Deliciously and beautifully put together food topped off a spacious set up with a glorious view of the Christchurch lights from above. A truly wonderful experience worth checking out!

I ordered the seafood chowder and it had a lot of chilli in it and was too hot! I was very disappointed, however, when I talked to the waitress she offered to replace it with anything else on the menu. I chose the salmon gravalax and it was absolutely delicious. My husband loved the pork belly.
Great service and spectacular views

Overall experience was just somewhat okay okay. Not too flashy not too great of a meal experience. And it was pretty cold inside of the restaurant when we dined.

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.

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.

We had a lovely evening with excellent food and service. The Cup always caters superbly for those of us needing to be gluten and dairy free. Many thanks Team.

A lovely experience, the service was great and the food was yummy. We had a table by the window which made for a nice touch.

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.

Not our first time dining at The Cup but first time using first table. Food and service have always been of a high standard.

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.

- dined at The Cup Cafe on

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.

Great evening out ,pleasant environment, very friendly and helpful wait staff, good food. Would happily return. Enjoyed the first table deal too, for us eating early works well during the working week.

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!

Soraya King

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.
