Walking into 50 bistro we were warmly welcomed by the staff and the beautiful setting. As it was my dad's 60th we decided to go all out and had 3 courses. Our table of 4 all got very different meals and they were faultless. The flavours all worked so well together and it was one of the best meals I have had out in years. The wine list is extensive as well. Definitely will be back for my next special occasion.

Nice food and attentive professional service. More choice of vegetarian dishes than most other restaurants. We appreciated that the mains and later desserts arrived all at the same time for 4 people. A bit pricey, though.

Between us we tried the pasta of the day, fish of the day and the duck salad. All were very good, as was the matcha bavarois for dessert. Service was very attentive. A great way to spend a rainy day!

The stater was amazing, for the main meal we had the ribeye steak. This was cooked to perfection! We tried some of the in-house sorbet and ice cream for desert, this was totally awesome. The waitress Trish was fantastic, she knew everything on the menu and assisted us with our choices. This was one of our most pleasant dining experiences we have had in Christchurch. Thanks to all the staff!

Not as good as one would expect for the price. Not much of an atmosphere either. It was nice but wouldn't hurry back

The atmosphere was good. For starters, we had the seared scallops and chicken pate, which were both amazing. For mains, we had the fish of the day and pasta of the day, which both had a well-balanced combination of flavours and tasted good but nothing exceptional.

As this place is one of my favorite places to dine, it rather bothers me that the food is getting pretty SALTY these days. We had to ask for a new soup from the beginning and there was absolutely no taste but pure SALT in it as if somebody just poured a whole bottle in it. However, we got a new one and the Beef and Chicken main dishes were well presented. But, I must say that with the Seafood small dishes , they are still making it too salty.
I think Experimenting with new ideas must not be done with the frequent diners here. People who dine at the 50 Bistro is more to culinary tradition , expecting nothing but the classic best. Hope this comment helps.

The overall ambience was 4 out of 5. The food especially the ribeye steak that I ordered was delicately cooked and superb. However the soup and the entre menus that we ordered was quite questionable. The scallops were marinated in somewhat a too much indian fusion style so it was not western style nor asian style and it gave too much of strong flavor on top of the scallop. The main dishes are good and the lady incharge of the services when we dined were keen to see what needs to be done, 'When' so that the costumer does not have to wait for the attention s to be met.

Food was excellent. It is clear that some thought and effort was put into presentation and taste. Kid friendly we were there with a 7 year old and a 5 month old. Dessert was so pretty I almost didnt want to eat it. But it tasted pretty good. I felt some of the waiting staff could have been friendlier but people can have bad days. That is the only thing that took the shine off the otherwise great lunch.

Particularly enjoyed the tandoori tofu. The pate bon bons were novel, but we couldn't really decide if the chocolate made the pate any more enjoyable than it would have been with some bread or crackers.
