Price Point: Mains from $15 - $35

ten27 is a locally owned family run cafe, eatery and bar in the heart of Ferrymead in Christchurch. Bringing upmarket cafe fare, craft beer, New Zealand wines and live music performances to the area, ten27 is a refreshing departure from the big box strip malls of Ferry Road. It’s polished, sophisticated feel is complimented by the beautiful furniture and homeware store, Casual and Country, with which it shares both premises and ownership.

The airy, pristine interior is championed by the stunning exterior - architecturally designed by Greg Young in a post earthquake rebuild on the same site which has housed Casual and Country for 27 years and the cafe for 17. Owned by Jenny, John and their son, Ben, the Ferry Rd destination stocks Garage Project, Cassels & Sons and Three Boys craft beers and serves local produce.

A charcoal bun beef burger and truffle polenta soldiers with avocado are menu heroes, along with the descriptively named John’s Mum’s Fudge which sits pride of place amongst other cabinet food and sweet treats. Seating for up to 100 people makes ten27 a great venue choice, and provides excellent peace of mind that there will be a spot available for your brunch, lunch or dinner requirements.Also housing two courtyards; one is dog friendly and the other may be the cosiest outdoor fireplace setup you ever encounter.

I love everything about ten27. Whilst the food is always a knock out (we shared 3 of their generous sized starters and split 1 dessert between 2 of us) it is the exceptional service that really blows me away. Every time I've been in, whether for First Table dinner, morning coffee on the way to work, late brunch on a weekend, no matter who is behind the till, or serving the tables, everyone who works their is an absolute delight. So friendly, checks in on the meal, has a good chat, knows the locals, and welcomes newcomers all the same. As always, great food, amazing service.

Great dining experience by our group of four plus a toddler, with delicious, perfectly cooked, well presented food. The staff are attentive, efficient and friendly - nothings a bother. The ambience is relaxed plus a bonus of being entertained by a live duo “Taylor + Song” who were superb.
Many thanks - we’ll be back Ten27

Great night out, we had a wonderful main of eye fillet, cooked perfectly with complementary sides and a delicious jus, a fantastic dish. A busy little restaurant with good service and a minimalistic but welcoming atmosphere, really enjoyed the live music and look forward to coming back to try out more of the menu.

I've been to Ten27 before, so already knew about the great food and atmosphere. Last night was no exception - a yummy meal finished with the most divine Apple Crumble - seriously, I can make apple crumble, but this was something that has to be experienced! The live Duo of John Lloyd and Harry Harrison playing rock, blues, country, and everywhere in between had us up dancing as soon as we finished our meal. What more can I say? Easy parking, happy, knowledgeable staff. We'll be back for sure!

We love Ten27 and often enjoy going on a Friday evening when there is live music. This week was Graham Wardrop - a world-class guitar player, singer and song writer.
Our food was divine and for me I think one of the best meals I have ever had with perfectly cooked and beautifully presented food.

Very slow service. Arrived (with 2 children) and after 20 mins went to counter to place order. 45 mins before food arrived. Food fine, and staff pleasant and obliging about moving us to a quieter table at the beginning. Was quite busy, maybe just bad timing.

food was great!!!! Our waitress for the evening was very friendly, very sweet. She had lovely approach to service in hospitality. The rest could learn from her. Proprietor of place was also friendly. Makes a whole difference to an evening out with family. Lovely setup and ambience with live music. Will definitely return.

Café Ten27 has an airy, pristine interior which is championed by the stunning exterior all adding to It’s polished, sophisticated feel. Myself, my wife and two of our very good friends had a very enjoyable evening together, listening to some live music while eating from their menu which seemed to be quite classic, but we were extremely surprised at the fullness or flavour that each meal delivered. The Crisp Skinned Salmon Fillet with green lipped mussels, was delightful and the Grilled Fillet Steak with trimming also was a meal that far exceeded original expectations. Thanks for a great evening Ten27.

Wonderful staff, really accommodating and helpful. We needed to move outside as the musician was too loud for one member of our party & this really wasn't a problem for the staff despite it being busy. The food was fantastic, the staff attentive without being overpowering. Would highly recommend

Fabulous Friday night here, my partner and I decided to try almost all of the starter/share plates as they all sounded delicious, ended up with a lot of food - very generous portions and all super tasty we definitely didn't need to eat that much but the flavour was too good to say no to. Star of the meal was the lamb sliders - the flavour changes so will have to keep track of when lamb is back in rotation next to get some more.

Awesome atmosphere, was really pumping at 6pm, live music, prompt service and people trickled out from 7pm onwards. Really great start to our anniversary night! Thank you!

We had a lovely date night out. Atmosphere was beautiful with it's lovely lighting and setting, with live music being played by Sarena, was really impressive and added to the beautiful surroundings. The food was perfect, we can't fault it, steak was cooked perfectly to our liking, flavours all complimented each other. Definitely recommend.

Great atmosphere and setting but the menu after a few visits is becoming a bit uninteresting.a bit of a shame because we love the music and feel of the place and would like to become a regular Friday night patron.needs some imagination on the menu to keep us coming

Wonderful food - the squid on quinoa salad absolutely delicious - and gluten free!! Service was excellent, friendly and professional. We had the added bonus of two for one bubbles to celebrate their 2 yr anniv, plus great music provided by their single entertainer who treated us to some old time favourites. Good company - fab night.

We had a great night; the restaurant is child-friendly, we had excellent service, enjoyed the live entertainment and there was plenty to choose from on the menu - the kids loved the crispy chicken small platter (which isn't that small). We will definitely return.

Whilst the menu might be slightly less expansive than other establishments, the food that they serve up is always tasty and well presented. The team also do a great job to make you feel welcome. Coupled with happy hour and live music, it's a fantastic way to start the weekend!

Took my family out for a pre-Christmas dinner meal celebration and my dad was really impressed with the Canterbury Lamb Rump.

- dined at ten27 on

We ordered the lamb and fish dish and both were very well presented and delicious. I choose the chocolate mouse for dessert,which was a very generous portion and was light and creamy. It came with fresh strawberries, white chocolate shards and brownie bits. Yum.
