We took advantage of the 6 course degustation menu which was a set menu with some unusual selections such as Carpaccio - Cotopus, fennel, citrus salad with macadamia but every course was absolutely outstanding. The atmosphere was warm and comfortable without being too formal, with a lovely open fire on a cold and miserable evening. The service was attentive to... More

The food, the staff, the ambiance... everything was just lovely! It was a miserable night outside but when we stepped into the restaurant, we instantly felt warm and relaxed. With its two log fires and friendly staff... the "Welcome Mat" was evident. We had the degustation menu and every course was a unique taste sensation! Just yummy!

We recently had a family dinner at Toto's to celebrate my mother-in-law's 80th birthday. The food, wine and service from the Toto team was exceptional and without fault. They took wonderful care of us especially my mother-in-law who was a vegetarian and provided her with bespoke dishes just for her while the rest of us thoroughly enjoyed the set menu.... More

This restaurant knows its business. Could only get a booking or 6.30pm for degustation last night. Empty restaurant when we arrived. Do not under estimate why they are good. The restaurant steadily filled, but bookings are spaced for a purpose, each table is served perfectly. No long wait, no food too quick, just extremely well done. The staff are amazing.... More

We booked an early dinner here mid-week on a cold and slightly damp evening. Luckily there was free parking nearby (Auckland city street parking is generally free after 6 pm, but check for signs). We were greeted by the friendly staff and a roaring fire - a very nice atmosphere and comfortable despite being the first diners. The 6-course tasting... More

Food is very good but pricey and the service is glacial - or is it that the kitchen can't get the food out? Has a big reputation that is not deserved

A class act from start to finish from this award winning restaurant. Being able to book online is a real bonus because restaurants often don't answer the phones early in the day. My booking was instantly confirmed by return email and I was even phoned back later to discuss a comment I made on the booking form. We arrived early... More

Usually I have food envy glancing around the table at other plates but my choices were excellent. Duck two ways, octopus cappacio, chocolate fondant - OMG were all fabulous and others had food envy. Great atmosphere, food excellent, wine selection good. Limited free parking next to restaurant. Knowledgable and friendly staff.
