D4 is a pretty funky restaurant, upstairs on the corner of Featherston and Brandon Streets - very handy for many of us worker-bees, and it always seems to be pretty busy. When we arrived there were a couple of large tables set up and several others booked, so we were glad we were dining at 12 - by the time we left there weren't many tables left!
We were served promptly and the server was friendly and helpful. I asked for fries as I was super hungry and the waiter asked if we'd like everything together or the fries first - great service!
We weren't overly impressed with the food - it was okay, but nothing special. My burger rather oddly had a significantly larger (oval) bun on the bottom than on the top. The lamb pattie was nicely cooked, though a little thick (I have a pet hate of burger patties which don't go all the way to the edge of the bun). Mr Cake's sirloin was a bit gristly but the bun was very tasty. And the fries? Well, they were good. Not quite good enough to get through quite that many, though!
We were happy with our meal - though the food wasn't amazing the service was good, and it was a speedy meal, which we like for working lunches. With our voucher the total bill to us was $20.20 - pretty good value! I think the voucher sites are a great way to discover new favourite spots - what about you? Have you used the sites? What deals can't you resist?
