One of the best restaurants in Christchurch, great food and french staff provide a very authentic feel. The reserve beef eye fillet is outstanding.If you are looking for somewhere to go for a special occasion this should be at the top of the list.

Our party of 6 had a fantastic night at St Germain. We were having a degustation dinner and some had the wine matches as well. Fabulous food, wonderful service and the french wines were superb. Glad I wasn't the driver. Recommendable.
