Decided to drop by on a Saturday with my better half for her birthday lunch. Menu looked okay but sadly after being seated for almost 20 minutes with four glasses of water between the two of us and zero service, I decided to pull the pin on that particular operation. Inattentive, apparently-blind, wait staff with little to no energy about... More

Went for lunch with group of friends. The menu looked promising but never delivered. The smoked chicken salad came without the chicken; the staff quickly added chicken but the salad was still abysmal- cheap and rubbery slithers of mozzarella , few wilted leaves and and no dressing to speak of. To their credit, the management took the salad off the... More

That ain't Tapas! Fairly average I could cook way better at home. Service below average. Learn to smile people you have a job!

Visiting my son in New Zealand we walked along the viaduct until we came across Pascado. Sitting outside we ordered a beer and danced at the menu, the Tapas menu is separate and we decided on that. We shared 4 plates thoroughly enjoying each one. The Belly Pork and the Chorizo with Chick Peas were our favourites.. i have had... More

We had a group lunch at Pescado last week and it was fantastic. I can highly recommend the Haloumi on ciabatta and the Moroccan spiced chicken. Others at our table rated the pork belly highly. Several others had the Moorish Kebabs which they said could have had more flavour but that was the only minor grumble from an otherwise fantastic... More

Beetroot salad with walnut and haloumi. No flavour ,slices of raw beetroot laid out on plate with if you are lucky one walnut cut up. A few little pieces of haloumi. Spinach and smoked chicken just plain tasteless . No dressing other than oil and a drop of balsamic in it. My husband had fish sitting on chips making chips... More

I am not a food critic, but I am lucky to have a job that allows me to travel a lot and does not have a limit on daily expenses - thus, I limit myself to US 100 a day, and usually skip breakfast and lunch to treat myself to a nice dinner. This place attracted me with their crispy... More

We were a group of four in for brunch on a Sunday. The waitress took our coffee orders and managed to get my order wrong giving me a small instead of a large coffee. Nothing written down which is ok if you are going to get it right. Took our food order Again with no notepad and left out my... More

While in Auckland on business I managed to catch up with a couple of colleagues who live there. They suggested this place as it was central to where we were staying. We were early as they got caught in traffic - we were shown the menu and then asked if we wanted to order even though they knew we were... More
