This is one of my favourite places to go for a cup of coffee and a dessert (which is from Millse, the best desserts in Auckland). The service is always top notch and I love that it is outside but covered, especially on rainy days as you can be outside but have a blanket and heat lamp to keep you... More

Being a part time Britomartian resident......this restaurant caters for BYO wine on Mondays only - which is right up our ally and literally in our hood:) The restaurant is sitting in one of prettiest places in Britomart with the glistening lights which is a definite attractant. The food is very yummy and plentiful. Service is top notch being that the... More

The service is excellent and the food is fine. Yes, they go the extra mile with blankets for the outdoor seating but you'd expect that given the pricing. I can't say anything bad but felt that it was basically what you'd expect for the price range and didn't do anything particularly special.

We thoroughly enjoyed the food, wine and ambience. We chose glasses of house wine, excellent value for money. Food was interesting, full of flavour, fresh and nicely presented. Service was professional. We'll be back.

We were a group where the numbers kept changing and I am extremely grateful to Justyna for how obliging she was with the continual changes. We arrived with Tropical storm Debbie a bit windblown and slightly damp and were shown to our table straightaway. Drinks orders were taken as well as our slightly chaotic food orders. Our waitress was very... More

We went to Ortolana simply because we thought it looked intriguing, and we weren't disappointed. My husband had octopus and I had lamb, and both were cooked to perfection. I had a Pimm's No. 1 cup cocktail, which was really yummy. (My husband drank wine. And I can't remember what I had for dessert, but I remember that it was... More

My sister is always determined to find really good places to eat in different cities, no matter how far away they might be from her accommodation. Her partner generally goes along with this, but I'm less obliging if I've had a long day on the tourist track. However I must admit the effort of walking from Viaduct Harbour to eat... More

I was not expecting much - was kind of hard to find - but I am slightly directionally challenged - BUT \\! Ortolana is in a very pretty little pedestrian area. We sat outside - it was pleasant and though we were the only ones outside it seemed like our waitress was right there whenever we needed her. Impeccable service.... More
