This is my favourite restaurant in the city - I love the changing seasonal menu, the cocktail and wine list is fantastic, and the service is personal and the menu well explained and laid out. I need to come back again soon to have the brunch menu! Hot tip: ALWAYS order the goats cheese churros. You will not be disappointed.

The Monday Room never fails to impress. The menu and food here are outstanding, the fit out is cosy and intimate, and all put together and served by young people who love what they do. This is a step up from what we are used to seeing in Christchurch, really raising the bar. If you consider you're self a 'foodie'... More

Stumbled in here on a Friday evening - didn't book but staff tried their absolute hardest to get us seated. Definitely recommend booking to secure your spot. Really friendly bar staff. Food was excellent, well seasoned, nicely presented. Great.

I was looking forward to dining at the Monday room, but I will never go back. The food is excellent but the service was aggressive and bullying. It is a 5 for the food and a 1 for the service.

Our waitress was excellent and explained the menu well. We chose the Trust the Chef option which was a good choice for a large group - 10 of us. It was a sharing meal with plenty of food, really great flavours and taste sensations. I just wish we had room for one of the very appealing sounding desserts. We'll just... More

We enjoyed the entrees and the shared lamb was nice but quite sweet and very generous, probably enough for 3 so recommend a big appetite if you order this one. Service was the absolute highlight as we had a really warm engaging waitress who gave excellent service. The experience wasn't a 5 but definitely a nice meal all round.

Well.. The Monday Room has always managed to surprise me in some way everytime I come back here. Whether it be a special cocktail from their extensive menu or trying a different dish that just happens to be as good as the one before it, I can never fault the quality of their product and attention to detail from this...

The Monday Room had me pleasantly surprised on a recent visit. First to impress me was the service, the waitress was very friendly and knowledgeable about the food and menu. We were told the dishes are best served and targeted towards sharing so we ordered a main and two sides between the two us which was definitely just the right... More
