Called in for pre theatre dinner, only wanted a small plate or two each but our host convinced us to go for the $45 per person set menu. What a feast, could have easily fed 6 of us, and caters for all such as wheat free vegan etc. The service attentive and polite, and if you have an opinion good... More

Hats off to the team; wait staff were pleasant and discretely positive, which complimented and allowed the chefs passion for delivering delicious food with a real point of difference to be the main event. Well done team. We will be back for sure!

We had dinner here for my birthday and what a fabulous treat. The atmosphere is warm and inviting and the staff are friendly and attentive. Our meal was to die for- the combination of flavours is the best I have ever tasted. I can't wait to dine here again.

Went on Saturday night with friends and we decided to choose the 'trust the chef" option and we were not disappointed. There was plenty of delicious food and as I am a vegan they had vegan options in all courses on offer. Social pariah I am not at The Monday Room. The service was friendly and efficient and we all...

Can't fault our brunch on a sunny Sunday morning - the coffee was delicious, the food amazing, and the staff were efficient and really helpful. Scrambled eggs on toast and the waffles were our faves! Well worth a visit.

Arrived and pleasantly welcomed to the Monday Room. Initially ordered drinks once everyone in our group arrived. Was a little disappointed non-alcoholic / soft drinks are not noted in their drinks menu - only alcoholic beverages. Atmosphere and environment was really nice and definitely plenty of room for slightly larger groups. Ordered a mix of the menu to share amongst... More

It is imperative that you find this place and eat here. We had supper and it was shared like a family meal. You can also trust the chef. The ingredients were all five star quality. The bluff oysters that were in season was delicate and tasty as a starter. The 48 hour Pork neck main is Free Range and one... More

Dined at The Monday Room this weekend with friends. It was an excellent experience in every way. We all opted for the chef's selection which allowed us to share the entrée and mains between the four of us. The food was of the very best I have experienced in Christchurch, and also at a fair price. The wine list is... More

Hello and welcome to TMR Restaurant & Bar

We pride ourselves on having a vast and varied offering, showcasing the best in food in beverage in New Zealand. Our restaurant offers an environment of comfort and quality, with plush banquet seating, and professional yet casual service.

We have a real passion for food, and our team of chefs; with local heroine Hannah Cooper-Grieve at the helm, are some of the highest trained in the country.

Owner Joel Christian has hand-picked a concise yet substantive wine list showcasing some of the best local, and New Zealand wines.

Additionally we offer an extensive cocktail list for those of our guests who care to enjoy a cocktail either before, during, or following a meal with us.

We function primarily as a Restaurant, and our priority is always tables and bookings for guest with the intent of dining. It is highly unlikely that we will have tables or bookings available for cocktails or drinks only; but rather we offer an extensive beverage program for the enjoyment of our guests who are dining.

We offer two different food menus, all of which have their specific times of service, along with specific points of interest. These are detailed as follows:


Our evening menu is all about Social Dining.

The menu is comprised of multiple plate sizes, and is designed to share from the middle of the table in a fashion akin to traditional New Zealand family dinner.

For your first course we offer the Small plates, either to share or enjoy individually.

For your second course we advise guest to select from both the Medium and Large plates, with the Large plates as your hero protein dish(es) and the Medium plates as the vegetable driven accompaniment(s).

We wil serve the second course through the middle of the table, complete with serving cutlery, for you to then serve on to your own dinner plate.


The Monday Room is a specialist Dessert restaurant, and as such, we offer a large and varied selection of house made desserts. This menu is available every day, from open until close.

Weekend Brunch:

On the weekends we take a break from the fancy restaurant, and during the day we have a little bit of fun with our menu. These days book out fast, so it's always best to make a booking.

We take bookings for tables of up to 14 for Lunch, Brunch and Dinner.
