Wind your way through the wonders of Transport World to find this gem of a restaurant.

Surrounded by vintage trucks, this large venue has a bustling atmosphere that’s great for families and business meetings alike. Gather your favourite people for a cup of Havana coffee and a good catch-up, or settle down for a hearty meal.

The menu features everything from dry aged rib eye steak to beetroot risotto with mushrooms. The fish dishes are outstanding; try grilled Stewart Island salmon, pan fried turbot and panko crumbed blue cod. There’s a good selection of gluten free meals too.

Ensure you save room for dessert – The Grille is renowned for its irresistible sweet treats. Between the likes of churros with dulce de leche, caramelised white chocolate and rum fondue and more, it’s almost impossible to pick just one…

Attentive waiters without being intrusive. Great food. Not an extensive menu but a good one. Would definitely return.

Attentive staff & the food was great.
My partner ordered the Angus eye fillet medium cooked and it was cooked perfectly.
I got the pork belly which was melt in the mouth tender and added an apple & fennel slaw which was a delicious counterpart to the pork belly.
Both dishes were so perfectly seasoned and balanced that we never touched the salt and pepper on the table.
We finished with iced coffee and a lemon tart, both very acceptable and well presented.
In our experience we think The Grille offers the best plate meals in town. We also think that First Table offers the best opportunity to experience it as First Table allows you to budget in these food experiences.

A great meal, I couldn’t decide which dish to have so settled on two small dishes, the salmon salad and the pork belly. My husband had the fish of the day and chocolate brownie. All were delicious.

This was our first experience using First Table and it was fabulous! The Grille was a good choice.
We walked into an immaculate restaurant with the sun streaming in though the windows. The was upbeat music playing and our waitress was very friendly and helpful.
The meals arrived quickly and they were great, well presented and delicious.
(Pan fried fish and blue cod meal) and we ordered the delicious bearnaise sauce as a side.
Great venue, great food, great staff and great price.
We'll be coming back soon.

The meals were outstanding. The menu had been updated since last time we dined and it is obvious they are always endeavouring to improve. This is such a family friendly restaurant with the play area to keep the children entertained. The staff were also phenomenal. Highly recommended.

We had a great time at The Grille. Food was beautiful and our waitress was awesome. I had the steak which was beautifully done, my daughter had the chicken salad which she loved and hubby had the lamb steak which was also perfect. We finished off with the fondue - yum yum yum!! The marshmallow made on site was so tasty!! Thanks for a great meal experience, next time we are in Invercargill we will be back

Great service and the meals were all nice. A bit of a limited selection but this was because they were in the process of changing the menu the following week. Looking forward to trying the new menu!

I have booked through First Table before, it's a mother & daughter quality time experience. Love the food! I had the Duck this time as my daughter raved about it last time- it well and truly lived up to my expectations. Will be dining at "The Grille" again. And again. And again.

Lots of wonderful choices on the menu. Very large meals and ours all tasted great. The children were delighted with the presentation of their meals as we were with ours. The staff are very helpful, friendly and accommodating. The decor is retro and we were there early enough to be able to have a good photo session with the children without annoying anyone. We are definitely going back and have already decided what we will order. Can hardly wait!

Service was great from the start, our lovely waitress (forgotten her name but she had red hair) seated us and got us drinks straight away. Food was cooked to perfection and in a timely manner. Recommend The Grille as one of the best dining experiences in Invercargill.

Absolutely amazing! Food was great and plenty of it. We asked for a special request for a meal to be changed a bit and this wasn't a problem (unlike some places). The waitress was fantastic knowing exactly what we wanted and popping back regularly to check drinks, desserts etc. The highlight for our son was that his meal came in the deck of a chevy ute! So cool. Would highly recommend that the grille is definitely invercargills place to go. Thanks so much for a great night!
