This was the first meal for our trip in South Island. The dishes were well-cooked. They looked awesome and tasted delicious. We also had very nice desserts. Wonderful dinner.

Straits cafe was a great place to celebrate a birthday.
All the food, salmon salad, pork belly & lamb were beautifully presented and delicious. Staff were attentive without being intrusive, will go again.

Staff attentive. Kept coming over to fill up water glasses. When having dessert they finally left the water bottle (after numerous trips). Food was nice. Had starter of crispy chicken between two of us. Then had the lamb dish which was nice. Husband had the pork which he said was gorgeous. Desserts: the rhubarb and custard dessert needed more custard to make it all match but still tasted nice, the meringue was very tasty and all went together. The food is better than your average grub but something is lacking to say it is spectacular - may have been the quantities to make it all match together. Would still recommend.

Very attentive staff, starters of chicken and wontons would have been great if they hadn't been grossly overcooked but the Mains of Beef Cheeks and Lamb Rump made up for it.

Great food, atmosphere and wait staff were very friendly! I had not previously dined here, but am raving about it to many of my friends!
Music was maybe a little loud and didn't quite fit with the setting of the restaurant, but other than that a great place.
Thanks heaps :)

What a great spot. I always think that hotel restaurants are going to be fairly uninteresting but this is definitely worth the visit. The food and flavours were outstanding and the the service was excellent. The restaurant was almost full but the meals still came out in good time. We'll be back again.

Arancini starter was lovely, and the serloin steak was cooked to perfection. Rib-eye steak just melts in your mouth. Service was okay.
