I have visited TweLve on many occasions and cannot fault the food, service or ambiance. It was one of the few places in Ashburton where you could guarantee all three. I always had the steak which was cooked to perfection, followed by the creme brulee....More

We were the only diners, having booked for our meal on a Saturday evening. We looked forward to a relaxing night with good food, as we had experienced before. The fillet steak served was certainly overdone and the explanation was unsatisfactory (that it was finished...More

Great friendly service and well looked after. Really good atmosphere with nice music. But most of all the meal was to die for, top class! Its a must visit if you are in Ashburton.

We arrived for dinner last Saturday. We were a group of five and, whilst the place was busy, we were the only group dining. The menu itself is compact. Two entrees, three mains and two desserts. There were no complaints in regards to the entrees,...More

I've been to Twelve twice now, once for drinks and once for dinner. I was, frankly, a bit disappointed with the price and food. I ordered a steak that was cooked well, but came with minimal vegetables; 4 beans! 4 beans! Really?! I feel it...More
