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.

We dined at Fig for a family celebratory dinner. Fabulous and friendly service and the food was outstanding. We highly recommended and will also be back to dine again.

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.

Must try the new gin of the month and 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.

A very pleasant experience on a Sunday evening with our son and his wife. Nothing to criticise. Food and service were very good. Last visit was about two years ago and the standard has been maintained.

As we were staying at the Elms Quality Hotel we decided to dine at their in house Fig Restaurant. We are so happy we did as the food and service was exceptional. The wait staff are so friendly and helpful. The food came out quickly and was absolutely delicious. Wish I had taken photos of the chicken curry I ordered as it had outstanding flavors. We also had a butterscotch cream brulee and it was divine. Highly recommend Fig Restaurant.

I’ve dined at Fig previously and my most recent visit wasn’t at the previous standard. The starters were delicious, and 3 of the 4 mains were fine. The venison, salmon and stuffed chicken breast were tasty but the gnocchi was gluey and the sauce had the taste of a store bought bottle of pasta bake sauce. The wait staff took this feedback on board professionally and said they’d report back to the chef, and removed the cost of the dish.

Anna Brown

What a great place! The staff were so friendly and helpful and made us all feel very welcome. We really enjoyed the evening and there was no rush to get us out when we were finished. They even volunteered to change the chairs to more comfortable ones for the older members of the party. Some very personal and kind touches. Food was very good. Our only suggestion for improvement would be a better choice of starters - perhaps incorporate some things from the bar menu? so that they could be shared.
We'll be back.

Lovely place to have dinner, stuffed chicken breast was over rated, no walnuts taste and size of it was maybe half a breast. Lamb salad my friend had looked superb

Went based on others feedback, I didn't realise it is part of a chain Hotel, our service was excellent, the food very average, no fish on the menu.

Lovely meal, atmosphere and service, couldn't fault at this level. The windows and windowsill where we sat could do with a clean, otherwise a great evening out

- dined at Fig Restaurant & Bar on

arrived early could be seated immediately but decided to have a drink at the bar no problem with either . once seated service was polite and quick , the meal was well presented and tasty .no pressure to finish or between courses
given time , enjoyed our night

Enjoyed the chips and starter. But the steak we had for the mains was dry - over cooked and the mushroom sauce was very thick. The dessert was very nice.

- dined at Fig Restaurant & Bar on

We all had a lovely meal. There chips were to die for and the fillet steak was cook to perfection .All in all a great night out.

First time diners at Fig Restaurant. The staff were very welcoming and friendly. Meals were evenly spaced out between courses. The ceviche starter was delicious as were the breads. The rib eye steak was cooked to perfection and was accompanied by a delicious garlic mash and salad, topped off with a light jus sauce on the side. Stuffed chicken breast with sauteed potatoes and broccoli cream was a winner also. Creme brulee was delicious - Nice setting - overall a very enjoyable experience. Well priced. Highly recommend.

Freezing night in Christchurch so lovely to slip into the warmth with cheery fire at Fig Restaurant with our friends.
We have enjoyed First Table experiences there previously and thoroughly enjoyed the excellent menu and food and hospitality.
Many thanks Fig and many thanks First Table for making these nights so memorable.
