We absolutely loved our experience at iBistro in Hamilton and would highly recommend it to others. As soon as we were seated our waiter was attentive to our needs and ensured we were happy with our meal and dining experience. Our meals were delicious and bought out in a timely manner. What more can I say... loved the food and the service - the lemon and coconut cheesecake was stunning. Thank you iBistro for a lovely evening, we will definitely visit you again during our travels.

Very attentive service where nothing was too much trouble and the food was great. I hadn't heard of First Table before and it did sound almost too good to be true but the booking was easy and there was no awkward moments when it came time to pay at iBistro

We headed to Ibistro for a 6pm dinner. Was a beaut of a night so we could sit outside and enjoy the amazing view of the Claudlands bridge and Waikato River with a few drinks to start. Entrees came out quick snap and as soon as we were done, out came our mains! Great service for sure. Will be going back when the Hamilton weather clears up so we can soak in the best dining view in Hamilton City!

It was our first "First table" experience and we were pretty pleased. We have lived in Hamilton for a long time and had never dined at Ibistro. We were pleasantly surprised, cant wait to go back in the summer so that we can see the river views. Great way of introducing us to new restaurants!
