My wife and I visited Cook'n'withgas on our first night in New Zealand. We were delighted with the experience. The place itself is quirky and interesting, with lots of curiosities. It felt comfortable even though it was quite busy. The menu was just what is needed, a relatively small selection of dishes that sounded great and were reasonably priced. The... More

My wife and I are very fortunate to travel the world. We love the dining scene and seek out interesting places. Cook'n' with Gas really fits the bill. The room, eclectic. In an old house it is a mishmash of beer and liquor signs, heavy floor to ceiling drapes and little storage areas for wine and classes smattered around the... More

Dinner was excellent and staff was superb. Interesting dishes and vegetarian pasta dish was delicious. Nice presentation. Small restaurant. Noise level was moderate, and we could talk easily at our table of 4.

My partner and I have been coming here for several years now and we always absolutely love the food, atmosphere and the staff! It is so nice that the team now remember us when we dine ( even if it is only a couple of times a year) and are able to suggest wine and whiskey, which we always enjoy.... More

Food scored highly together with the service. place for it's location and positive rating. Needless to say, the restaurant superseded our expectations. Service was on point from start to end. Highly recommended. The guy who served us (Gitti) did an excellent job. Keep up the good work

Discovering a fine dining restaurant where the Chef is willing to cater for Philistines that like their meat properly cooked is indeed to be cherished - couple that with excellent fare, great ambience and friendly, efficient service and you have a match made almost in heaven! Extremely popular so booking essential.

We really enjoyed our meal here and I am surprised at myself that I was not agitated more by the $42 mains. Perhaps it was the great company , friendly staff, awesome wine and very tasty food. The menu is not that adventurous so if you want unique taste experiences you might be disappointed. However portions were a good size... More

Had a dinner in August - probably the best part of it was the compliment from the Chef. The main dish was ok, the desert probably too sweat. So in total - quite a good meal, but for this taste I would say the price it too much (while the quality, service and presentation of the food were amazing!). Nick
