The food and beverage are par excellence. The sight of seeing helicopters leaving and landing is pretty interesting especially while you tuck in some fresh Kiwi food.

We have been coming to Mikano for years .Probably this will be our last time .We were there 6 months before .Everything was Fantastic.Not sure if Management changed or not Motivated anymore .Food was just not good .It was missing a flavour that we had for years .Also bar looked bit messy .Service was still alright .

We booked a degustation menu for the entire family for my birthday and when we turned up, no one knew about our booking. They then didn't make an effort at all to still give us a table (the restaurant was almost empty...and it was a weekday), they also told us that they wouldn't make the degustation menu that day, as...

I always feel staff can make or break a dining experience and Jazz always... More

Upon entering the restaurant, we approached the counter and saw the manager(Middle aged balding indian man) on duty. When speaking to the manager, we mentioned that we had a voucher booking and immediately, we noticed that... More

I've been to Mikano for lunch and dinner a number of times in the past three years and they continue to impress. Service is great but the food is always of top quality and very well presented. The view is unique in Auckland, both for visitors and locals. Thanks again!

It had been a while since we had gone to Mikano - but wife and I decided to return for an evening meal. As always the location is great, the busy port, the occasional helicopter taking off and landing... However the food was quite disappointing. The duck ravioli over cooked - the scampi lacking in much scampi. My sirloin steak... More
