The deal voucher we bought excellent value and gave us the excuse to eat and drink twice as much as we would have! We could not fault any aspect of the food or service, how often does that happen!
Earlier in the week we had a completely different experience at a similarly priced and cold, noisy restaurant with staff who didn’t seem to care and excessively large meals with far too much, far too sweet sauces.
Thanks Baretta, we’ll be back!
Ps and the toilets smell good!!!!
It’s hard not to feel that there’s a “we’re too cool for school” attitude from certain of the people serving, despite a lack of attention to order of serving and poor expression of courtesy or politeness.
The music is great, the food passable and the alcohol fitting in nicely with what is a beautiful fit-out.
Pity the only time I’ve been treated like a valued customer was when I wore a tux to a ball and popped in looking more affluent than the norm.

Our waiter was excellent, very friendly and efficient.
The food was amazing! I had the Beef and it was perfectly cooked. I also loved the pea and panchetta side, absolutely delicious.
The only con was that there was no Baked Alaska on the menu anymore and it was delicious, however, I had the coconut chocolate pudding and it was equally delicious.
I will be recommending Baretta to all my friends and family and will definitely be back.
given a table. The waiter was kindly and tried hard but interrupted and adjusted napkins, water etc about 25 times in 45 minutes. The waitress made us feel like an inconvenience. The food was rather bland. When we left almost all the tables were still vacant. Struggle to return.

There was an unusual dish on the specials menu featuring both salmon and gurnard. Not sure how well those 2 fish would work together.
This is a great addition to the dining scene in Christchurch.
they need to improve the service as there were 9 of us and we had entrees we shared and a main, with wine, and it was well over two hours. the restaurant was not that busy and there seemed to be a lot of staff on.
The food was delicious, cooked perfectly and for a very well-presented restaurant, priced very reasonably. Our waiter was attentive, polite and prompt despite clearly being busy with other tables.
Would recommend going earlier in the night as it got louder due to the bar filling up (Saturday evening, you’ll get that!), but not uncomfortably so.
Absolutely recommended, we’ll definitely be going back.

Particularly love relaxing at Baretta on a Sunday afternoon with friends as they offer a great selection of wine, live music and food to share (try the cheeseboard). The staff that hv served us have all been fantastic – love the place!!!
Cons: Service was very lame,. We went for dinner at 7pm and the music was far too loud for diners. We found that the maitre d’ wasn’t exactly friendly, and made a fuss when we arrived about our booking. Never got to the bottom of that one.
I wouldn’t go back for Dinner, as there are far better places out there for quality dining, but would go back for some beers with mates.
