“Very disappointing”
Review of No 8 Restaurant and Bar - CLOSED

No 8 Restaurant and Bar
Restaurant details
Reviewed 22 November 2017

Restaurant promised to be a good place for meat. Ordered the classic burger expecting at least a ground beef pattie (NZ has good beef after all). Was served the kind of pressed meat pattie from a supermarket. No need to ask "how would you like it cooked" (they didn't). Topped with junk presumably to imitate american style, but missing by a wide margin. No better than Burger King or MacFonalds. Location was good, but not recommended for meat lovers.

Staying at the esplanade apartments above, specials board was on and the place looked busy, always a good sign.
No many staff about, we were given a table for 2 and some menus, about 5 mins later we were given a jug of water and some glasses. There was only 1 guy front of house and he was looking uncomfortable , I kept trying to catch his eye to order at least a drink...but then after about 10 mins I noticed lots of people had no food on their table so I eventually asked the guy if the was a long wait for food and sheepishly he nodded.. no apology for not being upfront. So we left and went next door to Grace Omalleys where we had ordered and got a drink within 5 mins despite it also being busy.

Had a look at the menu and decided we'd make up our own platter from the entrees. Food absolutely fabulous - we had the prawn spring rolls, coconut coated scallops, salt and pepper calamari and bowl of fries. All beautifully presented.

Service was good and attentive.

We had a lovely night out at No 8. Started with yummy coconut crumbed scallops, then enjoyed Beef Wellington and pasta of the day. Food was excellent and the two waitresses that looked after us were very accommodating. We found room for desserts which were also excellent. We thought this restaurant was good value for money and would recommend it
