Market Place Restaurant
We had a very pleasant experience at The Market Place Restaurant and would definitely return. The food, service, and overall environment was very pleasing and relaxing. A special place for a special occasion.
Very good food. Service a little slow considering not overly busy
Delicious food, good sized portions, staff went above to acknowledge my partners special birthday. Will be coming back when next in Christchurch!
We enjoy with friends, Trust the chef meals, the presentation was lovely and all the food served was delicious with good portions. Beautiful setting, well spaced out and service was very professional. We would definitely return and recommend.
Always beautifully prepared food - a favourite place
Staff were pleasant but definitely young & inexperienced, my partner did not enjoy being referred to within the collective "guys". Food was unremarkable, well presented but not of a quality we expected. They will need to up their game in a competitive Christchurch market.
The food was good and the service was fantastic. The place was amazing and great vibe!
Great creative food, great staff, great ambiance. over all an experience to remember
Very fancy place to eat. Was a great suprise for my girlfriend on Valentine’s Day. Place was great service was still great and even tho we though the service was great one guy come and gave us a gift of chocolates to say sorry for not being able to serve us tonight as he would have liked and that was really appreciated. We didn’t even notice he didn’t have time that me and my girlfriend were having a great time and enjoying the food so thank you guys great job
Very tasty local food and superb service. Parking just across the road and a great central location.
Seafood chowder was delicious and filling!
Salmon croquettes tastes like black and gold fish fingers... I think the dipping sauce needed a pack a little more punch.. maybe some wasabi in it.
Steak was delicious and cooked exactly the way we wanted.
Drinks were very slow... I suggest ordering a bottle and keeping it at the table to avoid being stuck with an empty water and wine glass.
Amazing view to Victoria Park... definitely book a table and request a window seat.
Gorgeous interior too! Very nice fit out.
The food was lovely and the service pleasant and efficient. The restaurant was too cold for our comfort.
Great wait staff, nice ambiance. Food was good but dessert options a little disappointing being very similar - Brulee/ ice cream/ pannacotta. Ice cream dish needed a crunch element, Brulee wasn't really set. Salmon main course was very nice. Slightly disappointing to find that a dessert option, wine option and an element on the salmon dish were all not available. The wine options have a very high mark-up when you compare what they can be bought for retail at an outlet. Overall a 'good' experience.
What a lovely restaurant in a beautiful hotel. Very good service in the restaurant, we enjoyed the blue cod, nicely cooked and presented. The wait staff were very professional
Food was amazing!!!!
Took a long time to get seated but worth the wait. The vegetarian food choices was the best I’ve seen in a chch restaurant. It’s really hard to good options that are appealing but what I ate was fantastic! Best meal in a long time
On another occasion I did have a high tea but it wasn’t very good, food was boring
Delicious food. Service a bit slow, and a bit odd e.g. cleared plates before everyone had finished eating, brought dessert out well before drinks ordered with dessert
excellent food with a great view and just busy enough to be interesting but not too noisy
Fantastic food and service. We're able to accommodate for my dietary requirements on request (Gluten free).
The food was excellent & the wine menu was good. The service was amateurish, with replacing cutlery & serving. We waited about 20 minutes for our appetizer. That was cleared, and then 30 minutes passed and we asked about our mains, and they said the chef was just starting them. It was another 30 minutes before they appeared and we were told the delay was in the kitchen. Odd as the restaurant was not busy at all!
Food takes very very long time to come out so not recommended if you have to do anything after or you’re hungry
A very pleasant evening pre-theatre meal .Good selectionof meals, beautifully presented & good flavours. Chef & wait staff to be commended!
The food was amazing and the service was faultless!! Will recommend to all
Lovely food, beef cheeks were delicious. Service was great. Seated by window as indicated when booking we were on a date.
We had an early meal before going to the CSO concert - Town Hall. Super convenient location. Our meals were fantastic, and our server was very helpful. I particularly appreciated his knowledge of the wines available and general wine styles. Entire staff was very attentive. We would certainly dine there again.
Have been a couple of times now and always have had great service and good.
Beautiful restaurant and great service. Unfortunately the food we ordered was a massive let down. We both sent our meals back and weren’t completely satisfied with the second meal either; although this time it was cooked properly. I expected a better quality for the price. Staff handled it well and gave us a discount which we were grateful for. We left happy with the service but wouldn’t return based on the food we received.
Market Place Restaurant is a lovely dining experience with quality food and service. They provide an atmosphere to relax and indulge at the same time which is perfect for any occasion.
Lovely atmosphere and we were given a table overlooking Victoria Square which was a bonus. The food is always good and I visit this restaurant several times a year with different friends. The service was very good and the noise level was fine and I’m very sensitive to noise. Another great evening at Market Place.
Excellent food and service.
Perfectly cooked steak and tasty starters and dessert.
We had the pre theatre meal - but the main course took too long to arrive and we had to eat it very quickly. But, the food was excellent.
Staff were lovely and attentive. I had a small plate meal of beef cheek which was delicious and left me wanting more. My husband had ribeye which is his standard and hard to go wrong with. Thanks for the great service :)
I would recommend Market Place Restaurant to anyone.
very good pre theatre meal. good value and good quality. Great to be allowed to share both starter and dessert, as 2 course set menu. Excellent service. the only let down was the distracting TV on the wall.
We happened to dine the same night that the Jaguares were staying for the Rugby. They were very energetic/loud.
We had to keep trying to get the attention of a server for drinks/ordering etc.
2 of our diners had the 'fish and chips' and the fish batter was overdone, very dark and quite oily. They both felt unwell during the night .
The desert was OK - the apple pies needed something more than the small amount of Creme Fraiche as it was quite dry. Maybe Yoghurt or something.
As for the tasting plate - The panna cotta was a joke. It did not wobble, it was very set and had a grainy taste/feel to it. Should be taken off the menu. The apple 'cake' was a mini muffin. The only saving grace was the teeny tiny creme brulee!
We wouldnt be in a hurry to be back.
We enjoyed our meal immensely and will definitely return. The ambience was lovely and the service top notch. Would not hesitate recommending your establishment to friends. The perfect spot for a pre show dinner.
excellent food and service plates were large and cooked to prefection.
We celebrated a Wedding anniversary here and found the overall experience very pleasant. Our waiter was very helpful and the meal was upto expectation. Would recommend to friends
Our table of four absolutely enjoyed our meal. The staff were lovely and helpful and the food was 5/5. We came for a 21st birthday (on the day) so our experience will be memorable. Thank you all.
Great meal & service, main meals took quite some time to come out, entree was quicker, the restaurant was pretty quiet .
Food overall delicious .
Fantastic staff and service. Beautiful restaurant and lovely food.
