About GRAND CAFE

An icon of the Christchurch Dining Scene for over 20 years.

Grand Café is proudly presenting you the new menu addition – “Parma”, the home of Parmigiana!
Grand Parma’s menu focuses on that hearty American-Italian dish Chicken Parmigiana alongside more traditional bistro style dishes.
At Grand Parma we coat fresh chicken breast with our secret crumb daily, and serve them with crisp slaw and chips.
There are up to 12 flavours you can choose from, and you can swap the chips with Quinoa & Avocado salad as an healthier option.
Our main menu also include Mama’s Pasta of the day, Akaroa Salmon, Steaks and the Traditional Carvery.

Whether it's a sumptuous weekend breakfast, a lunch special during the day or a three course dinner in the evening, The Grand Café offers something for everyone.
R20 venue & bookings recommended.

Lovely presentation of High Tea, but desserts were too sweet for our liking. Minimal number of savory/sandwiches provided, but scone was moist & light; unique recipes although some flavors didn't seem to match well together (eg, salmon mousse on a sweet macaron, beets with rosemary). Waitress had a very heavy accent & when asked what type of herbal teas were available, she simply listed what was already on the menu; also she was a bit slow in providing our coffee & tea. Hostess/cashier was very friendly & helpful.

I love the relaxing "high tea" after a stressful working week. Also love that there no kids running around. Restful. Food is always fresh n tasty & of high quality. Service is normally of high standard (like today) but I have had not so "caring" service....depends who is on. But today can't fault the service.

The chicken parmigiana main course was very good value. However the soup which was sold as seafood chowder was tasteless and could have been anything. No seafood flavour at all? Otherwise great service staff. We will be back.

We had excellent wait staff, food was very good but with the changes to the restaurant area the atmosphere is not as good as it once was and maybe a change of name could be required

Disappointing that our party of four was first to be seated and first to order our high tea to be served immediately after our meal only to wait more than an hour for the said high tea. We were told that a large party arrived while we were having lunch and most of them ordered high teas ... to be told this only made us feel more aggrieved. This was the poorest service we have had at the casino and we all remain disappointed to be sidelined in this way.

Restaurant Response

Hi Graeme First of all thank you for always visit us for lunch and high tea, your feedback is always appreciated. We had review the situation regarding the waiting time which was roughly 30 minutes not 1 hour, as we do record that for every meal we send out. Usually we are able to serve high tea within 20 minutes but as explained we did have a rush period. As apology we have offered complimentary petite 4 from our pastry team, also a 20% discount for the total bill. We thank you for leaving great comment about our food and we respect and understand you have high expectation of our service, which is a honour to us. Once again we are sorry for the unpleasant experience and we will ensure your next visit is a pleasant one. If there is anything else I can assist with please feel free to let me know. Kind regards Jing Jin FB Opts Manager [email protected]

Disappointing in the lack of a dress code now. Always was nice to dine at the casino as it was a dressy place. Certainly not the case now.

We spoke with the lady running the Grand cafe when we paid and she was lovely. We told her that the food was great, but the service was poor by the Casino's standard. She was quite surprised, but handled it very professionally. We had plenty of water during our meal but not once did anyone ask us if we wanted an alcoholic drink. We did have desert and coffee, but this was only asking a passing waitress.
