I have been there a number of times and find it a pretty nice place next to Bridgeway Movie Theater that is very convenient. It is not fancy or anything amazing but the food is pretty good as well as the service. The price is a bit higher than the average cafe therefore careful with your spending. Last time I... More

The pizzas are almost too big for one person, and very generously topped. Good service, no-nonsense approach to food. A reasonable selection of wines and beers to round off the meal makes this a pleasant every-day place to go. Recommended!

We have visited this cafe on numerous occasion during visits to Auckland and looked forward to returning on this visit; sad to say it isn't as it used to be. We waited an age for service, items weren't delivered, food was OK for some in our party, good for another but also mediocre.....tables were sticky, the place is in need... More

There are lots of places to eat in Auckland, and many of them are very ordinary. We came out of the Bridgeway cinema and dropped into Sausalito for an evening meal, since it it is so easy, being co-located. Unfortunately, Sausalito proved to be just one of those very ordinary places. Service started well, with a warm welcome and quick... More

As so often recently we prolonged our Sunday afternoon out by following the movie with a meal at Sausalito. I really want to be nice about this bistro, its staff and management but once again, I cannot. Because business was less than brisk the young staff, some old hands and others new, made the most terrible racket, shouting at each... More

We came here on a Saturday morning after our usual local cafe was too busy and had a private function. The service was very disjointed, unprofessional and it seemed like nobody knew what to do. We sat down to a dirty table and ordered, and found that two of the food options we ordered were found to be unavailable and... More

Lots of staff, and fairly noisy stopped for a bite before the film - was rather disappointed in the squid as was just a frozen one hashed up not worth the money, dessert had great expectations of the apple crumble however when it turned up it was just a Christmas mince tart split with some very nice ice cream on...

Have lunched at this restaurant a few times. Last night we went for a late dinner after a movie. Really nice meal. Both had fish which was well cooked and a very nice salad.
