Visited with friends on a Sunday evening. Very helpful staff although a wee bit forgetful with some of the drinks orders, however my wife did not recognise any of the wines on offer so was offered a couple of free tastings which was good of them to do. We ordered a mix of the venison, rib eye and chicken pie... More

Visited with family. The platter was amazing. 4 of us but could have fed 6. Good value. Nicely finished decor. Friendly staff. Well worth a visit if you are in Invercargill. A bit out of the centre but has a shuttle bus.

Good food with friendly staff serving typical Southland pub style food. The menu includes a daily soup, seafood chowder, burger with fries and other similar style food. I had the chicken salad which was nice. There are some light bite options but they still seem quite large for lunch time! The ambiance inside is friendly and warm and it's convenient... More

Had the seafood chowder as my main for our family Christmas eve dinner. Thee worst chowder I have ever had anywhere any time! I don't know how they could charge someone money for that! The chowder was full of large lumps of uncooked flour from the thickening and the seafood was very uncooked with the mussels still chewy. Would defiantly... More

Drinks followed swiftly, yummy cocktails. I ordered the chicken breast and my gosh! The best I've ever had, I rate the lone star but this is far better.... More

Warm atmosphere in Otatara favourite. Restaurant / Food is fair amongst the local Invercargill area, but it's not fine cuisine.

As it was near the airport & made a change from a CBD meal, a business colleague took me to Ziffs for lunch. My first ever visit & a very enjoyable experience it was to. Nice rural outlook, warm & friendly welcome & service & pleasant surroundings. Had very nice espresso before enjoying an excellent meal of battered blue cod... More
