We had dinner here on our only night in Christchurch. Though in a remote strip mall ocation (about $25 by cab from the city centre) it was well worth the visit. There is a choice of a 5, 7, or 9-course menu, comprising starters, fish, meats, and dessert. Our 7-course menu comprised a soup, salmon, grouper, pork, beef, pannacotta, and... More

We recently decided to go out for dinner for our wedding anniversary and chose Chillingworth Road for its marvellous reputation. We were not disappointed. We booked for the fine dining section of the restaurant where you are shown into a beautiful room nicely set out and which has a lovely relaxed dining atmosphere. You basically have the choice of a... More

Love this place ( the restaurant rather than the bistro-haven't tried that). Can't understand why it's not the best rated in Chch .... have tried the others rated above and there is no comparison 7course visit last night, stunning food, atmosphere and staff as always, can't wait to go back

Wow, what a find !!! This has to be the best dining experience we have had in Chch & possibly ever !! This amazing degustation restaurant is tucked away in a bland retail location off the beaten hospitality track, but that just adds to the feeling you have stumbled onto something special. Once you are lead through the big black... More

Chillingworth road is a wonderful restaurant not only for it's fantastic food but also for the amazing atmosphere. It is quiet, but not too quiet and the mood lighting is just perfect. Highly recommend!

This was a first visit to Chillingworth Rd restaurant so did not know what to expect. We were pleased to find that the Decor was very tastefully done which gave a quiet and pleasing ambience. The restaurant offers 3 degustation menus, 5, 7, or 9 courses with the option of matching wines. We went for the 7 course option with... More
