The menu is great I can never decide between the duck or the salmon.It is fine dining with a fantastic view looking over the bay and out to the sea.Staff friendly, Love going here on a special occasion. Also it is in the entertainment book.

Very centrally located with great views over the Ocean, Caroline Bay and the city. Good choice of local cuisine and produce. Great main meals with meat as a favorite. Well served local wines and freshly made deserts. Recommended for families and friends

Excellent service, good menu and food . But very noisy people at the next table. Views over Caroline Bay are superb. Great range of foods in the cabinet as well as menu.

Superb as always, beautiful food and great service - never disappoints. And we sat outside in the sun with the wonderful background view of Caroline Bay and the Southern Alps. Highly recommended.

Took a break from ski fields and drove to Timaru. After a walk along Caroline Bay we just stopped by Fusion for a quick bite to eat and didn't expect such a great meal. I had fish of the day with cauliflower puree and partner had popcorn chicken salad. We both had ginger pudding for dessert. YUM! Really good value... More

Arrived in a very sleepy Timaru on a Friday morning, stunning day sunshine galore, headed up to Bay Hill for a breakfast found Fusion open, ordered the French Toast and an Americano coffee. I was surprised how small the portion of the French Toast was in fact quite disappointed, I thought for 17 dollars I could have got a mixed... More

Routine breakfast stop between Christchurch and Timaru. We were hungry and knew the cooked breakfast at Fusion would do the trick. We dined with another couple and between the four of us we ordered 3 x pan breakfasts and an eggs benedict. We chose a table near the window and enjoyed the sun streaming through on a cold morning. Our... More

We went for lunch, with an energetic 2.5 year old. She ran all around the restaurant while I TRIED to tame her. The lovely lady serving us gave me her baby chino early to settle her down. That entertained her for approximately a minute. Then we were back on the go, with my little tornado throwing things around, again the... More

5 star food. So delicious, also had the polenta fries as an entree and this is the reason I couldn't eat my mine. The steak was so big! But tasted amazing and cooked perfectly to my liking. Atmosphere let the place down as was so quiet even with the place 1/2 full. If u want quiet dining then it's ideal
