We had our Christmas celebrations and the service was very good. The wine selection was excellent, very good international reds. The food was nice but a bit overpriced.

The most bizarre service experience in Auckland to date. We were a group of 20 at dinner and separated into multiple tables as the $70+ set menu didn't appeal to all. We paid the price for this as Menus were held hostage for the first...More

Really tasty and well prepared and presented food. Water (both sparkling and still) was kept topped up without intrusion. Gorgeous view and tables not crammed together. Menu was not over complicated but enough variety to satisfy everyone.

Occasionally I widen my walking route to stop by and order my favourite dish “ Smash avo with kimchi “.... I love the consistency, service, food and welcoming smile anytime of the day. Simple unpretentious warmness here. Always happy to return.
