food is nice, nothing distinguishing or extra though! very nice setup, decor and views. the taking off and landing helicopters are a bit destructive but not a biggie. I've just noticed something about there spirits, I had many many house drinks that I lost the count however i didn't felt even a bit tipsy!

It was a girls lunch with the set menu, which is very reasonably priced. The food is really very good. The service is excellent. It was just a little quiet. The view of the helicopters taking off and landing next to the window is worth it.

A must visit in Auckland. Right by the sea with view of helicopters, sophisticated environment, great service, excellent food - especially the fish. Presented and prepared with imagination. Terrific mojitos made by "The Big Bartender" as he is called. Aussie maitre-d friendly and accommodating.

We went here on a stormy night when it was just bucketing down - got wet running from the carpark to the entrance but what a haven of calm once inside. The service was excellent with knowledgeable waiting staff who were efficient but not overpowering. We had the set menu which was full of unusual choices. Usually something would jump... More

We bought a Grab One to try out this restaurant for my partner's birthday. The menu was three-course Prix Fixe, with entree, main, and dessert. The entrees all looked amazing. I had the goat cheese and my partner had the crab lasagne. Both were delicious and well proportioned and plated. We both ordered the same main, a steak with mashed... More

We were gifted a Grabone Meal Voucher for a 3 course set meal deal. We were a bit iffy as we went a couple of years ago and the food wasn't up to par. But glad to say this time round it exceeded our expectations. The food was delicious and the service was impeccable. We will be back :-)

I explained that I had left a message to book our table however they didn't have our booking. The staff were friendly and helpful and gave us a great table. Our waitress was fantastic... More
