This establishment is like a warehouse converted to a hip feeding hole. Love the style right down to the chilled tin cups. You would expect the fish and oysters to be fresh given the Depot's location, and it did not disappoint. The treatment with the oysters was flavorful and carried a satisfying flavor. The fish was smooth and made me... More

We enjoyed the diverse menu and the wines. Our waitress was attentive but not overbearing and gave great wine recommendations. The place was packed and for good reason - it's really worth waiting for a table!

Great location for catch up with friends, right next to sky tower. The restaurant doesn't take any bookings first come first served sometimes you could waiting for hours. Food quality is great and very yummy, price is acceptable.

Usually I visit Depot for lunches, dinners or evenings. Have never tried breakfast there - until today. Well it's crowded then as well but we still managed to get a table for 4. Limited menu for breakfast - just 3-4 meal options. We all chose the Bacon and Egg sandwich - and it was divine. Coffee was excellent too. All... More

Mussels with chorizo, grilled peaches with prosciutto and macadamia nuts, charred broccoli with dates added up to be a creative, tasty dinner for my wife and I. Informal, friendly service. The staff were young and energetic. We are coming back for breakfast!

We love Depot's casual unpretentious vibes and great food. So far our experiences with the service and food have been fantastic. My husband loves the coffee and beer, and the pork hork. The charred brocolli is brilliant. Tried the linguine this time and will definitely order it again on our next visit. Great place to bring friends and visitors to... More

A real recommendation. The place is always full, for a reason. We had to wait half an hour. Worthwhile for phantastic oysters, mussels and chicken and wine. Very friendly service.

Ended up by chance here on a Monday evening & the place was rammed. Couldn't get in initially but staff happy to take our mob number & promised to call us in 45 mins. They actually called in 30 mins & offered us a table. The set up is unusual in that main courses are all designed to share, and... More
