Very dissapointed Becks, wont be dining with you again
Last night went for a meal with four other friends, unfortunately we were very unhappy with the service. Main meals took far too long, we had to ask how much longer it is going to take, only four arrived and had a ask for our fifth meal. We ordered dessert and again too long a wait, we asked again where they were and the waitress checked and said they would be right out, 15 minutes later and again asked for the dessert.
I am a regular and have noticed that the meal portions had gotten smaller, this was in stark contrast to when you first opened as Becks, what is happening, I really enjoyed returning there after Tuskers blew themselves out of the water.
Did pass on our complaints to the maitre de, who apologised, I do expect good service.
I booked over a week ago for a meal for six on Sunday 14 in the evening. I hope to see some improvements!!!!
The food was acceptable with large portions and beautifully cooked to match. Unfortunately my experience there was ruined by the rudest waitress I have ever come across. The attitude of the girl was appalling and her customer service didn’t do her any justice either.
I would love to return to this beautiful, cozy restaurant one day as the food was superb. Lets just hope I get a different waiter!
Bravo – live music on a Wednesday night “jamming” with Harry Harrison!
A friend of mine invited me to join her and her daughter to an evening with a difference so I thought my 19 year old daughter Rosanne who is studying at Christchurch Poly tech for a music degree might also like to join us. Rosie was in her element and played the drums and bongos to her hearts content. The audience lapped her up! What a great way of allowing talented people of all ages
strut their stuff!
No guesses for where I am having my birthday party on the 11th August!
By the way the pork cutlets in marmalade
were delicious accompanied with red cabbage, apples and mashed potatoes.
Now to the main reason for the visit. Malcolm McNeill would have to be one of the most engaging artists on the Christchurch musical scene. His breath control, voice range, and enthusiasm add so much colour that he left me breathless, especially with ‘Misty’. Accompanied by Bob Heinz it was an act I would happily have paid to see; in this case there was no cover charge. If this is the way Becks are going to do things, they are going to have to get used to my face.
We chose reliable favourite Oyster Bay Sauvignon Blanc and garlic bread then went to the main menu; my wife chose Fish Chowder, while I went for Lambs Fry & Bacon. Our friends both chose the Salmon Fillet. The wine arrived within about 2 minutes along with a bottle of water and though the wait for our mains was longer than we had experienced on week nights, it arrived in an acceptable (under the circumstances) 40 odd minutes, the wine and garlic bread and conversation keeping us happy during this time.
Our meals were generous and well presented. The chowder was thick with chunky fish, potato and kumara and extremely tasty according to my wife, while the salmon fillet was cooked just enough to be cooked right through without going dry complimented by the sauce and bok choy. Our friends enjoyed them. My Lambs Fry and Bacon was what prompted me to write this review. This was not your typical casserole dish; the large pieces of bacon combined with the thin slices of lambs fry proved this and it was served over spring onion mash and was delicious. It was easily the most tasty dish I have enjoyed at Becks and will most certainly be ordering the same next time around. Another bottle of Oyster Bay and espressos saw our night out. We were aware that some groups waited longer than us, but we were also aware of the huge effort put in by the staff who told us that several large groups arrived without reservations putting extra pressure on the staff who we observed handled it very well.
*****forgot***** to mention Below liquor land sign is “Tuskers”. These guys have rebranded and seem to believe they have no obligation to Tusker and their obligations. So be it but +3 months on you still havent removed Tusker sign!! Fellow Diners Be cautious and tell all.
