Absolutely outstanding. Amazing service, fantastic food, great atmosphere. We ordered scallops, pork belly, Creme brûlée and tiramisu. They were all delicious, generously sized and super fresh produce. Would happily pay full price and dine here again and again. Thank you for your faultless hospitality.

We had an amazing experience using first table at Quench Restaurant and Bar. We were warmly welcomed and had great service. We were looked after in a lovely manner throughout the evening.

The food...WAS AMAZING. Perfectly cooked and a lovely range to select from.

The atmosphere made for a lovely time.

A must try is the pork belly! With one of there most amazing desserts...any of them would be well recommended.

Thanks for the best experience, we will be back.

Had a lovely birthday dinner at Quench! They allowed us to bring in a special bottle of wine to celebrate. The corkage fee and nice range of local wines available were modestly priced. The menu had a nice variety of options for appetizers, mains and meat from the grill. We ordered scallops as an appetizer, the main was a generous portion of a lamb to share and creme brulee for dessert. The lamb was cooked perfectly and melted in your mouth! We got to have a relaxed meal over 3 hours and they didn't rush us out, as I read some first table users experience at restaurants. We got to fully enjoy the food, our wine and the staff. There's a rule that you can't take food away with the 50% off, I think my boyfriend had accepted the challenge seriously and managed to finsih the entire lamb! Everyone was lovely and very friendly, we will definetly go back and recommend the food and service at Quench! Thank you for the wonderful evening on my birthday.

We had a lovely family dinner & even my granddaughter was well looked after by the attentive staff. My salmon was cooked to perfection & the potato accompanying it was so tasty. We couldn't fault the meals or service. Will definitely be back.

Fun night out with friends complemented by lovely food attentive staff and lively atmosphere from a Christmas party.
The food ordered was presented beautifully and cooked perfectly with lovely fresh asparagus and tasty jus. The desert came with pretty pansies. The staff were extremely busy with the large Christmas group but we were given full attention and another couple commented to us how they had also enjoyed the party atmosphere.

We had an amazing meal at Quench last night. The Rabbit and leek pie with the red cabbage was a perfect match. We look forward to dining there again and trying something new.

Date night for my wife and I. Relaxing atmosphere in the bar area, perfect for a pre dinner drink. Table for 2 beside the gas fire in the restaurant was perfect on a cold evening. The service, the food suggestions and wine selections made for a thoroughly enjoyable evening, we will be back. Well done Quench.

We really enjoyed our dinner at Quench. We had our new born with us and they were so accommodating seating us at a table to fit the stroller. Our baby was a bit unsettled and my partner and I were taking turns eating/settling the baby. The staff offered to rock the stroller for us so we could enjoy our meals! The food was great and my partner said the Espresso Martini was one of the best he has had! Definitely recommend.

Food was delicious and service was very fast. The halloumi salad was fresh and tasty. The lamb back strap was cooked beautifully rare and the affagato was a lovely finish with a wide range of liquors to select from as an accompaniment. My husband had the pork and beef burger which was thick and meaty with perfectly cooked flavoursome chips. Although his burger was on the light menu it was most definitely not light! We shared a bottle of the recommended red wine which was paired with the lamb, very nice. Only a couple of negatives; the "vegetables" which were served with the lamb was only a small piece of broccoli on the side. The fact the it is supposed to be vegetableS plueral suggests that at least two vegetables should have been served. Also, we were given a menu when we were selecting desserts which was different to the the menu we had when we chose the main even though both courses featured on both menus. The affagato was not on the menu we were given when dessert selecting time came round so if I hadn't already seen it on the other menu I may not have fancied anything on this menu. Lastly some biscotti or something for dipping would have been good with the affagato. And I don't think tables should be seated so near to the toilets. All in all though an excellent dining experience!

Three of us dined, two of us had amazing meals. But unfortunately my husband had the sirloin on the bone. Lots of fat and grisly. And even the meat was chewy. Other than that everything was a 5/5. The staff were amazing. Friendly and attentive. Thank you guys.

Using First Table for the second night in a row! Last night taking my parents (aged 88 & 90) out for a special treat in Christchurch, this night taking my elderly aunt out to dinner for her 85th birthday in Blenheim. I left a phone message at Quench Restaurant after I made the booking asking if her birthday could be recognised in some small way. This was arguably the nicest dining experience we've had in a very long time - the food was exquisite, good acoustics and soft background music created a pleasant ambience where we could actually converse, and the mostly Indian waiting staff were gentle and charming. We lingered over our 3 course meal and appreciated not being rushed. They presented Aunty with a complimentary birthday glass of bubbles soon after we were seated & later, her crème brûlée arrived with a lighted candle and everyone sang happy birthday! She thoroughly enjoyed herself!
