Amazing food, service & restaurant - definitely deserves a 5/5 :) after a long day of driving from Queenstown back to Timaru on Saturday, 14FEB15, we didn't yet have a dinner reservation organised for the night, with a recommendation for my BF's friends (locals) it was decided to try out The Oxford. From the moment we walked in, the staff were so welcoming & accommodating, especially since we didn't have a booking! We were guided to our table - very elegant decor throughout the restaurant & heart-shaped chocolates awaited for us on our napkins. The dinner menu looked very moreish – I couldn’t wait to order! My goodness what an excellent choice for dinner, from the moment our meals arrived, we knew, we were in for a special treat tonight – I had the Venison, served medium rare with roast portobello mushroom, beetroot, baby spinach salad, pomegranate & hazelnut dressing and my BF had the Grilled Ribeye, with roast potatoes, onions, green beans, crisp fried egg, steak sauce – our meals were superbly delicious; I swear I could of had another serving of my meal, as it was the best venison dish I’ve ever eaten in my life! Dessert to share, was the Pavlova with fresh strawberries & cream (no kiwi fruit, as I already had my sweet Kiwi man sitting next to me). It was delicious too, no debates won on who first invented the Pavlova – the Aussies or the Kiwis. Sadly that night, I didn’t take any photos our my meals (yes, I’m one of those people that take food pictures), I wish I did, so I could’ve upload them to this review, but as it was a romantic night, the iphone stayed hidden in the handbag. Overall, I was so glad we went to The Oxford for Valentine's Day dinner - my BF & I had such a lovely time together - looking forward to going there again & again next time we are back in Timaru :) Thank-you for a wonderful night!
