The venison, chicken, roasted vege filo and market fish were all beautifully cooked and delicious in flavour.
We were very impressed with the extended new menu for the mains and dessert. The mango panacotta was the best while poached pear was on the sweet side for me.
As always staff are friendly and helpful.
We would definitely come back again.

As was with my other visits to Figs restaurant, I'm still very impressed with the service, food and ambience.
When I mentioned that my husband and I are celebrating our wedding anniversary, they surprised us with a dessert!

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We used First Table the first time we went to this restaurant and ended up using it for our wedding dinner. The wait staff were lovely and very accommodating, especially since we had a toddler walking around. I was a little disappointed they no longer served the truffle mash with their meals (it was a stand out side dish), but understand. We would definitely recommend this restaurant.

As per our other visits, food (salmon, chicken and curry) were perfectly cooked and the service was excellent. The staff were very helpful to accommodate our last minute change in the number of people due to family members visiting us and also the request of a cushion and a special dietary requirement.
Lovely ambience and would definitely go back again!

What a fantastic experience! Making a decision on what to eat was very hard, the options on the menu were a nice suprise. The meal was absolutely delicious. The service was superb! We will most definitely be back! They even had a delightful Port on the menu!

We had a FANTASTIC experience! The food was top notch as always and the staff superb. Minimal waiting time, we were very well looked after by all the staff but Trish was our main waitress and NOTHING was a bother. I casually mentioned it was my partner's birthday so we were celebrating a special night out. Before we ordered dessert, out came a waiter with a plate on which were a couple of yummy chocolate brownies with candles lit on top and a "Happy Birthday" message written in chocolate (by the chef) on the plate! Thanks to FIG for a most enjoyable evening. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

My friends and I had a great meal and the waiter and waitress were very attentive, happy and helpful, even though it was very busy. We will definitely be going back there again and I will try the duck leg next time as one of my friends had it really enjoyed it. Having said that I would recommend the sticky beef ribs.

The restaurant was stunning and cozzy, great decor with plenty of natural lights.
The food was a standout I really enjoyed the steak, it was grilled to perfection and the peppercorn sauce the best I've had in a while. The poached pear was so heavenly and is a must-try. Definitely will be coming back!

Had a fab time at Fig thanks to the lovely staff! We were sat in the Green Room, which has to be one of the prettiest dining rooms in all of Christchurch. It made for a calm atmosphere perfect for having a chat and eating some delicious food. The venison medallions were our favourite dish. We will definitely be back to try the other tasty sounding dishes.

My partner and I had a three course meal and the service and food were perfect, my favourite was the chilli garlic prawns and my partner Is gluten-free and had many options to choose from, she liked the pea and potato cakes. Fig was a comfy and quiet evening we both needed, would recommend to anyone.

Enjoyable dinner with friends. Very quiet (only 2 other tables occupied) but this is probably not unusual for a hotel restaurant on a Friday night. Pick of our 4 mains: the pork chops.

Only had one glass of water - no more offered.
Prawns delicious but THE Chicken dish wasn't even a full chicken breast and it was hard/burnt - Thank goodness that we didn't pay full price as I would definitely have sent it back !!!!! Really disappointing

Sincere warm welcome and dining service of the lady wait staff. Very velvety cappuccino...wonderful.
We liked both of the mains (lamb rack and the rib eye and the two desserts were divine...the pistachio creme brûlée and the frangipani tart.

We had a great date night at Fig. The food was delicious and the service was great. We ordered the hot wings to start and the stuffed chicken and prime rib for entrees; it was the tastiest meal we have had out in a long time. We highly recommend Fig for date night or a special occasion.

Beautiful restaurant and bar area. Lovely sitting with full length windows looking out to the garden. Lovely wallpaper looking through into another dining area. Very nice waitresses. Our bread starter simply delicious, left us keen for the mains. However somewhat disappointing. My husband ordered the chicken curry, the mounded veggie stack was barely warm ( mind you, he could have asked for a reheat ) and my rack of lamb, more like 2 fat chops, one with no bone left on the end. Both lying on the plate. Carrots were obviously frozen, and seemed semi-charred, but still quite firm. Do have to say my butterscotch creme brûlée was delicious. Shame about those mains. We were very lucky to have a first table reservation, as the normal full price of those mains, not really justified.

Fantastic food, great service. Quantity of food for price wasn’t great, but we will definitely be back!
