Generally, Timaru, although a delightful place that we always come back to, is not a centre of gastronomic excellence. So whilst the menu looked interesting, we didn't have particularly high expectations when we went to Fusion for lunch. How wrong we were - the food...More

When contact was made for booking for a Friday night, friend was told only option was 5pm or 8.30pm. She reluctantly took 5pm. We soon realized there was absolutely no need for us to dine that early as nothing was happening until well after 7pm....More

The restaurant overlooks Caroline Bay and the food was excellent. The staff were enthusiastic and helpful and we thoroughly enjoyed our dinner experience.

Rib fillet cooked as requested, mussels were a hit and lamb shank just ok. Service was quick, accurate and friendly. Car parking round the corner. Best seats near a front window for the view. Quite noisy when large groups came in.
