Loved this restaurant but last night had the worse experience ever. Apparently new owners are starting this week and they had several dishes off the menu which we were aware of, but they totally cheated us, with things missing. Pate with nothing to put it...More

Overall my review is only based on the service as we didn't stay long enough to experience the food. From the initial arrival at 5.35pm the service was below average and the staff on didn't give a very warm welcome. The door was closed (...More

This restaurant was amazing. To be honest I did not enjoy my meal and service when it first changed owners, but I had heard great things so decided to return last night. It's the best value restaurant in town. Top cuisine, presented like a restaurant...More

Really enjoyed the Bluff oyster dish here. Great selection of fresh food, good service and beautiful food. The wait was worth it and will return to try other lovely dishes. Recommend for a special treat perhaps to try the dinner menu.

Visited for a family birthday over a long weekend, won't bother returning, the place was pretty empty and I can see why. Meals were just average, nothing spectacular. The service was not up to standard either, not many staff on and who was on looked...More

It was some years ago that we last dined at Cullens and we now wonder why we have not patronised this delightful restaurant much sooner. It has always had an excellent reputation in the city, which testifies to it's longevity as a dining establishment in...More

Food is great. Service is excellent. Good choice of wine. Good variety of items and choices on the menu. I guess the only minor gripe is the menu doesn't change much in the times that I have been there. Overall though a great dining experience.
