I found the 50Bistro to be a very tranquil and romantic atmosphere. The service staff were polite, friendly and most attentive. The food was delicious and well presented. I would definitely dine or drop in for drinks here again, suggest even a nice place to dine after a wander in the botanic gardens over the road!

The service was impeccable! The wait staff are observant without being intrusive. The food was absolutely divine. We lived for those breads! The starter of breads were delicately put together, with the simplicity of butter, oil and vinegar, making the whole thing just moreish! The food arrived timely, with all mains being cooked to perfection, the flavours were to die for. Can't wait to head back in to 50 bistro again!

What a hidden gem! We fell in love at first greeting. Staff were so friendly and helpful, was attentive to our dining speed offering next course just at the right time. We had the baked brie and famous prawns to start and they were absolutely delicious!! MUST order the prawns-there's a reason why it is the main picture on their website. For mains we had the waikunui fillet and the ribeye. Both just melted in our mouth and what ever puree that was on the plate(maybe yam?) complimented it pefectly. Pear, walnut and goegonzola salad was fantastic as well, delicious candied walnuts and sweet juicy pear. Match barvois would be perfect for those who want to be adventurous with their pallet but don't like too sweet. 50 Sweet also very nice- a great assortment of desserts. We would recommend this place to EVERYONE!! YUM!!

Our family of four had a lovely meal at 50 Bistro last week. The food was absolutely delicious and the service was impeccable. Two of us had the lamb rump, which was beautifully cooked, as was the fillet of beef. My son had the chicken, which was also amazing. The presentation of all three courses was top-class. Overall, we truly enjoyed our food and appreciated the high level of service that received. I highly recommend a visit to 50 Bistro...you will not be disappointed!

First time dining at 50 Bistro for lunch and will definitely be back. The food was great and the bistro had a nice atmosphere. Three of our party had the Wakanui steak as a main and it was melt in the mouth - best steak ever!

Wow! 50 Bistro you are exceptional. Had the best night. Food was exceptional as was the service. We had a delightful young (Asian) lady waiting on our table. She was attentive yet unobtrusive - just perfect. Can't wait to return!

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.

Excellent service, the starters were questionable, the grilled squid looked very watery. The scollaps were lackluster, however the mains were delicious. The chicken was tender and packed alot of flavor and the rib eye was also well made.

Lovely environment . Meal was delicious.
Only comment would be that we ordered two starters to share between 4 . We questioned waitress as to number of pieces in starter and were told 3-4. We expected 4 but only three . Thought waitress could have suggested adding an extra, or told chef 4 people sharing.

Another awesome experience! Great food, nice atmosphere, and kind staff. I especially LOVED the way how the waitress, Angela served us that evening. She was exceptional - such a professional service with such a beautiful smile ALL THE WAY THROUGH, even though we happened to have asked quite a few favours/questions.

This is our first time at 50 Bistro. It was for our 40th anniversary and Father's Day. The food was excellent especially the steak which was cooked to perfection. Could not fault the staff. Always polite and attentive. We have booked again for this coming Friday. This is also a special occasion. To special birthdays to celebrate. We would also highly reccomend 50 Bistro to all our friends.kind regards Warren Firth

Excellent welcome and service. Very good meal and great value for money.

Unfortunately, it was average over all. I did not feel so comfortable with the service and foods were ok, not something special... I had a good expectation since 50 Bistro had a great reputation so I was a little disappointed...

Great staff. Great food! Everything was a lovely experience. Prawn entree was perfect.

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.

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!
