My family, friends and I visit this diner regularly. The food is always so nice and filling with options of doggy bags since we never finish the meals. Such a unique atmosphere that’s kitted out to be a beautiful wee diner. Lucky last, the staff are incredible! So lovely and welcoming. See you again soon cruisy days!

Visited late on a Saturday. Was told the kitchen was about to close but if we wanted food they would get it done, which they did. They could have just said no.

Ordered chips and thick shakes and were really good. Very friendly staff that clearly take ownership of their service.

Cool atmosphere and can see why it would be popular. I would book next time but it was a last minute decision.

Thanks.

Took a nice leisurely Sunday drive and decided to visit this place. Had heard great things and love retro so wanted to experience it first hand. Waited to be seated. Man told us there is a half hour wait to be seated. Taken aback at this as inside there were at least 2 free booths and two little tables. Outside completely free bar 2 people eating. Really why not seat us somewhere explain the food wait but let us order drinks.
Very disappointed. Either put more staff on or work it out. Bad system. Spent out money elsewhere. Who incidentally were just as busy but accommodating.

Hi Maria :) The weekends are most definitely a popular time to visit our Diner - we get a lot of people coming out to our beautiful wee town of Oxford on a Sunday. We do recommend booking ahead on both our Facebook page and Website so to avoid disappointment or having to wait. We understand your disappointment at not being able to be seated straight away - the vacant tables would have been reserved and we do not like to seat anyone unless we can give them the hospitality they deserve, so it is not our policy to seat our guests outside in the cold air and have them wait 30 minutes for a table inside. We consider that option to be a bad system which equals bad service in our eyes. Our Diner has limited seating and generally the wait for a table is around 20-30 minutes without a booking. Putting more staff on doesn't solve our limited seating. It is a shame you gave us a one star rating based on not being able to get a table. We are glad to hear you enjoyed eating at one of the other wonderful eateries in Oxford. :)

We love Cruisy Days and have visited 5-6 times now. Love the authenticity and attention to detail of the diner. Consistently great and very well-priced food (highly recommend the all day big brekky and waffles with bacon & banana). Service is always friendly and attentive. Well worth the trip out from Christchurch and quickly becoming a favourite family day trip.
