Visited Bubbles bar thinking that there would be a reasonable selection of sparkling wine, there is, but only if you want to buy a bottle. Lindauer seems to be their pick for by-the-glass wine. Would have thought that there are enough local sparkling wines to justify some options. Service was average, just felt like an average bar.

We stopped at Bubbles on the way to the ballet one evening. And what a good choice it was. The last time we'd been in was ages ago and were pleased to see that the service was still excellent, the wine list very good and the food also. This evening we chose the platter; a nice section of fish cakes,... More

I have friends that love this place, but each time I've been, the food has been average at best. On my latest visit, I ordered vegetarian lasagne, having heard that it was good. It came out looking like cheese soup - the lasagne was swimming in cheese sauce. I couldn't taste any vegetables but did see one slice of courgette... More

We went for dinner here with friends while on a business trip to Palmerston North. We were warmly welcomed by Dave at the door and seated in a quite corner. This worked well as one of our party is quite deaf and does struggle with conversation when a restaurant is too noisy. The food was fantastic and we sampled a... More

A birthday treat for my wife, French Bubbles and nibbles, fabulous stuff! Joshua is the host with the most out in 'Front of House'. And Pauline did a wonderful job in the kitchen, whipped some Scrumptious food for us. Can't wait to head back for more!

We went for dinner last Saturday night with a voucher. The immediate impression was that the decor was a bit tired and needed a "gussy" up but the food completely different. George had steak and was impressed with his whole meal. I had lamb rump and it was cooked to perfection. My only complaint was that there was too much... More

Called in to have a beer with my wife. This intimate bar/bistro had a great atmosphere with very good background music that was not too loud. Staff were excellent and the bar had a good selection of boutique beers. We will visit again and next time have something to eat
