It's our first time dining at Suzie Q. The lights inside are very cosy and the music is very classic. Natalia is very welcomed and her service is super thoughtful. We tried tasting menu 3 which is totally enough for us. The steak is so tender and juicy, the pork belly is crispy outside and soft inside, the prawns taste like the southeastern style and the chorizo is amazing! The experience is delightful and enjoyable. We will totally be back and definitely recommend to everyone. Not to mention 50% off with First Table :) Totally worth it!

It was my first time at Suzie Q's and I wasn't disappointed. The waitress was attentive, helpful and friendly. The mulled wine was wonderful and the food delicious.

I'd certainly recommend Suzie Q to friends and family, thanks for the experience! :)

Without a doubt, Suzie Q has got great service combined with delicious food.
We thoroughly enjoyed one of their set menus. The tapas plates arrived one after another nicely spaced out. Deciding on the best plate was for us a split decision: the salmon gravlax, venison medallion, spicy chicken, but in reality all 9 servings were divine - different textures and tastes. Their selection of drinks meant everyone could have exactly what they desired. We will definitely be back. Couldn't recommend more - an A+ restaurant.

Suzie Q's is a wonderful place to eat. We were welcomed straight away and shown a table immediately. We chose Menu 3 of the shared menus and the food was perfect, each course of our tapas menu was delicious, from the house-cured Salmon gravlax on crispy wontons with horseradish cream through to the Apple and Fennel braised Pork Belly with apple sauce and charred corn salsa, everything was full of taste. Our waitress was delightful, helpful and made herself available to answer any questions we had throughout the evening. We will be back to dine again.

My partner and I and our 2 boys tried tapas for the first time. We started with a round of raspberry and cokes, best ones I've had in town! Perfect composition. Us adults opted for the $49pp sharing plates, and our boys ordered a crispy chicken dish and a serving of shoestring chips. It was exciting being served 8 different small dishes every few minutes, each of them delicious! At the beginning we thought we'd possibly leave hungry due to the size of the portions, however by the time we finished the 8th dish, we had only a small amount of room left for dessert. Partner had sticky date pudding which he loved, I had a absolutely delicious cheesecake and boys went with a chocolate sunday each. We all left feeling very happy and satisfied. Although there isnt exactly a children's meal, staff and the cook were more than accommodating to make it work. Thank you! We will certainly be back.

First time to dine in at this restaurant and we were so amazed with the variety of food. Amazing great food! The wait staff was so nice accomodating, friendly and approachable. This kind of service is very recommendable in reataurants where customers don't know what they are getting..she was so friendly and approached us in our table and help us out by suggesting to try shared for 2 and it was amazing. She keep on coming back to check on us which we appreciated, well done she made our first time dine in so comfortable, enjoyable and great experience! Surely we will be coming back.

I want to go back already! The shared menu tapas was a great variety of delicious, and cooked to perfection food. Venison, rump steak, chicken, prawns, scallops, pork belly, it all came out searing hot.....we had too much food and even took some home! Generous portions!
Everyone in our group enjoyed the variety and chance to try something new.
Suzy q might just be my new favourite restaurant!

I've dined at suzie Qs in the past but it's been awhile and after seeing the amazing pictures on her website and Facebook I caved and the partner and I decided to book a table.
It was his first ever time trying suzie Qs resturant and tapas in general I was hesitant to how he would feel considering he is a meat and veg type of guy.......
We ordered tasting menu 3 and my Golly gosh we couldn't fault the meat if we tried. Everything was amazing the taste the look the presentation......
I even tired scallops for the first time and holy crap cook me more .
The partners response after eating was (let's definitely come back and bring our friends). WIN WIN WIN
The waiter was delightful always doing something, clearing plates, cleaning tables, checking on us. Just perfect
High 5 team you made 2 little fatties very impressed and happy

Food was amazing!! The scallops were to die for. All brought to the table at a nice pace so we weren't overwhelmed with too many options on the table at once. Reasonably priced, lovely atmosphere and the service was friendly and attentive but not over the top like a lot of other places around town. Hubby and I both wished we'd visited sooner!!

I excepted it to be good, I never thought it was going to be INCREDIBLE! We were in Invercargill for business and thought we would try it out. We went with one of the set menus. The food was delicious and there was just so much of it. Great service. Lovely atmosphere and music. Will definitely be back and will be recommending to everyone!

A fabulous opportunity to eat at Suzy Q, which I had heard about but never eaten there. The service and food couldn't be faulted. As first time diners, our waiter recommended how to proceed with the menu and his advice was spot on. We had a variety of dishes, beautifully presented. As with the food, the waiter's knowledge in regard to the alcohol menu was excellent. Will definitely go back again to try one of the cocktails and the brown sugar tart. Highly recommend Suzy Q as a place to meet with friends.

We were welcomed warmly and promptly shown to our table. Our waiter was approachable and attentive. Our food was produced quickly and was delicious. As we were booked for First Table, we were able to leave just as the restaurant became busy and were home in time to put the kids to bed. I have no hesitation in recommending Suzie Q as a relaxing, positive dining experience. Thank you First Table and Suzie Q.

We decided to head to dinner for our 9th anniversary, we booked with first table (as we have wanted to try out Suzie Q’s since it opened) we got all dressed up (something we don’t do often!!!) and headed in. We were greeted warmly and given a nice wee table. We chose the tasting Menu number 2. We ordered drinks and then the food started arriving, oh my gosh! Everything we ate was utterly divine, the flavours were spectacular. My favourite (hard to pick, believe me!) was the final dish which was Venison medallion with mash and the most incredible sauce, it was utterly heavenly! What was surprising about the evening was the fact we actually couldn’t eat it all! (Which is definitely saying something as we REALLY like our food!) so overall I would absolutely recommend Suzie Q’s we will certainly be back!!! Thank you so much for making the night one to remember <3

We celebrated our Wedding Anniversary at Suzie Q last night & ordered Set Menu 3. The food was excellent, especially the Lamp in Yorkshire Pudding dish which was superb. The wine list was extensive for a small restaurant, with most wine available by-the-glass. The young man who waited our table was efficient, attentive, knowledgeable and polite. The restaurant also has a very nice ambiance. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Suzie Q to anyone wanting a fantastic meal out in nice surroundings and we will definitely be dining there again in the future.
