Great view, excellent food but not fine dining

The view is spectacular & the food very good but there are some major failings at six senses. Firstly the tables which are made of weathered wood, with no table cloth or mats would be more at home in a beach cafe in boh put. Not fine dining. Our waitress was unable to talk about the food other than... read more

We've dined here 3 times and each time the food and atmosphere were amazing and and views absolutely breathtaking. Can be a little scary at first especially for those who may suffer from vertigo or fear of heights, as the edges of the dining decks are only tilted slightly upwards, with no actual fence or barrier to the rocks and...

Great night with fantastic food and an even better view! Our waiter was brilliant and reeled off the ingredients to a 10 course tasting menu with enthusiasm. Well done Chef Erik!

Nice view, nice place but overrated. Food is ok but expensive and service below average.you have plenty of waiters refilling you with water every 5 min but that seems the only thing they are taking care of. All the rest of the service is long and average

We visited the restaurant after making reservation. Upon arrival at 9pm the staff who welcomed us had the attitude why are we here. Very poor greeting. Once we were given our table the waitress gave us only the drinks menu and when I asked her for the food menu she asked me to wait for a bit!! After getting the... More

We had a ten course taster menu which was a real mixed bag - two or three dishes were outstanding, most were average, and one or two were not very nice at all. Given the price charged, I would expect every dish to be amazing but, sadly, the overall quality of the food was just average. Some dishes were very... More

We really enjoyed the location and setting and the service was good but the overall experience felt a bit rehearsed/clinical. This included the food which was nicely presented but wasn't particularly tasty and was certainly way overpriced at $500NZD for the night.
