We enjoyed a fantastic early dinner at 50 Bistro, thoughtful service, beautiful food, and relaxing atmosphere. We especially liked being seated in the courtyard space next to the green wall and enjoyed the setting sun over the park

Food was excellent as was the service. Just as good as last time I dined. Perfectly priced for the quality/portions/style of the food. Recommend to anyone who enjoys a dining experience. Great service to boot.

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.

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.

Dined here with an old workmate on 14/3/19, had never dined here previously but found staff to be friendly and helpful. Our waitress made a small error with one of the mains, but was so pleased she did as beef cheeks were to die for. My companion found her tuna a bit well done and dessert and wine choices were also very nice. Nice relaxing environment and will be sure to come back.

Perfect Sunday lunch. Beautiful food, friendly, attentive staff and great atmosphere. The vegetables we ordered with our mains were a few minutes late coming from the kitchen so they took them off the bill without us even asking. $115 for four people for two courses each and drinks is amazing value at such a beautiful restaurant! Never disappoints.

When booking this table, we were looking for somewher special, a restaurant that would provide a beautiful and tranquil atmosphere, so we didn't have to strain over background noise, good service, and excellent food. 50 Bistro was perfect in all respects.
The menu was full of mouth-watering choices. We ordered seared scallops and groper for the main, and petit fours for desert. Everything was impecably presented, a feast for the eyes, as well as for our palates! The flavours were subtle and to be relished.
Thank you so much for making our lunch-time dining experience, so special. We had a wonderful time and will look forward to coming back again.

Great food and perfect service! Our first fine dining dinner with friends and thought we might need to grab some more food in Night Noodle Markets crossed the road! However it turned out that we are so full and satisfied and left noodle markets without having any ( it never happened before!) We had a lovely walk there after our great meal though! Almost all the seats occupied and other guests all had the happy faces like us! With First Table discount, you definitely not want to miss it out in Christchurch!
