Reviews for Chambers Restaurant @ The County Hotel
27th February 2013
Absolutely fantastic meal, from the very tasty home baked bread given free of charge to start with, wine list very complete, probably not enough international wines, NZ wines are only average.. but the food is just amazing, great selection of starters, we had scallops that were delicious with a touch of very sophisticated Mediterranean flavors, and the pate with crostinis full of flavor.. lemon sorbet, another good touch to clean the palate to get ready for the best steak I’ve ever had, cooked to perfection, tasty croquette and some strange dressing, perfect to match the natural beef flavor, seafood pasta.. real home made, beautiful flavors with the cream sauce, and for desert we had the tiramisu with raspberry, nothing but perfect.. service wonderful thanks to Sam, real fine dining is the way to go and here you’ll find it.

We brought a voucher deal for a five course meal at this restaurant. The service from our waiter was fantastic and the ambiance beautiful. The first four courses were wonderful apart from the fact that there were only four pieces of seafood in the seafood pasta meal. The biggest disappointment was the desert we got served. To say the least it looked like what I serve toddlers at work for morning tea. Browned apple slices, kiwifruit (sliced) old banana, raisins, two dates, chopped apricots and some marsh mellows with a tea light chocolate dipping sauce. I think they really did themselves a dis-service serving that. Simple cheesecake would have looked and tasted better!

We had the degustation dinner here recently.
It was supposed to be a treat and the menu read well.
I have to say it was quite frankly the worst meal we have had out in a very long time.
VERY basic food, tough steak which was definitely not scotch fillet, grey seafood, tired rocket and too much more to mention.
They have a captive clientele with all you poor people who have bought deal degustation vouchers.
We will certainly never go back here.

What an absolute disappointment.
Where do I start – -
1. WINE LIST: they had run out of our first 2 choices of wine. The ambient room temperature on this night was 30 degrees. The red wines are cellared in a room which matched this temp – I thought the establishment might have had a cooler place to cellar red wines.
2. ENTREE: We chose breads with dipping oil and dukha. One of the breads appeared to be sliced white shop bread!!! How boring can you get. The other bread was a grain roll.
3. MAIN COURSE: the chef doesn’t season his food so this was very tasteless. Meat was tender. the side dish of spring veges was boiled courgettes, turnips and carrots without any seasoning.
We decided not to bother with dessert or coffee. Had already wasted too much money.

4 1/2 stars -would have given this restaurant five stars a couple of years ago but wine list less extensive (especially by the glass), and menu less impressive.However service,surroundings and food are better than most and a great place to bring guests if price not an issue.
