We had the most delicious meal and amazing dining experience at 50 Bistro. The service was excellent and ambiance lovely. We shared the seared scallops starter which had great smoky flavours and both had the Wakanui eye fillet which appeared simple however was cooked to perfection with crispy chargrilled outer and tender inside. The hand cut fries were crisp and great with bearnaise sauce and spinach well seasoned. We couldn’t miss out on dessert so each had the baked chocolate and cherry cheesecake which was deconstructed and had to-die-for sorbet. Will definitely have to visit again!

Caught up with friends after work and had a lovely dinner. Food was great (loved it that I was told when I ordered the lamb dish that it came cooked medium rare and when I was asked if I was ok with that, and they were happy to cook it medium for me). Service was the best, unobtrusive but always there if you needed them. Continues to be one of the finest dining locations in Christchurch.

Excellent evening out. The food was beautifully presented and delicious. The service was brilliant, attentive but not over bearing. Pricing was high but if it's a special occasion then definitely worth it. Ours was a date night so using First Table made it more viable. Certainly one restaurant I would revisit.

Excellent from start to finish. We particularly enjoyed the entree of scollops, tender and juicy.
From the mains the lamb stood out, not only for its bright pink beetroot accompliments, but it’s devine taste. Our waitress was seamless, perfect mix of friendly and unobtrusive. Thank you for a lovely evening

We had a wonderful and relaxed evening with happy tummies. The restaurant was clean with good ambience. The service was great and Stephanie was just amazing and attentive. I had my toddler who woke up just as I was about to start my main course. Stephanie even offered to carry her so I could have my main. I have been to many restaurants in NZ and overseas and never have I been offered the same. I was very impressed and she even organised a birthday cake for my toddler which was super cute. 50 bar had tons of drinks selection particularly their wine list, although I found they are a little bit more expensive than others- $33 for two glasses of greystone pinot noir. My daughter expected the gnocchi to be very soft and fluffy like she had at her recent authentic Italian experience but were not but I supposed it’s really hard to beat the authentic ones. But apart from the gnocchi I couldn’t fault our food from our entree to dessert, we love the tasty marinated olives, the organic vegetables and our steak and salmon were cooked to perfection. We had the roasted pineapple cigar with basil sorbet recommended by Stephanie and it didn’t disappoint. My kids absolutely loved their desserts, they had the 50 knickerbocker glory and warm chocolate which were all presented nicely, so nice that they didnt want to eat them particularly the birthday dessert that was made for us. A nice way to end our evening! Thank you 50 bistro for giving our family a great night! Would totally go back and recommend to others!
