We booked for dinner for 4 using a Grabone voucher for a Sunday evening. Parking was relatively easy on the same street. The restaurant has both outdoor and indoor dining with a very pleasant relaxed atmosphere. Service was friendly, prompt and attentive during the course of the evening. The voucher entitled each of us to a three course meal with... More

We had the tasting menu on Tuesday night - it was divine! Every single course was delicious, the whole set well planned in terms of complementary flavours etc and all well timed. By the end we felt full but not stupidly so. Saw a few people come to eat but leave when they heard it was tasting menu......their loss!!! Thoroughly... More

We were at the restaurant last night a group of 9 from 630 pm, it was my first time there but my friend who had booked us had been there before. Let me start with the atmosphere, well appointed, seems to have had a recent make over - very tasteful. The food was very good, I was not expecting the... More

This is a very good place to start the day at Devonport, Auckland , good food, nice view and quiet and rapid service. We take the breakfast several days on vacation and tried most of the breakfast menu, the latte and capuchino are highlights.

I will start with the rating of the food because I can look past the service in most cases. We both ordered the eggs benedict. The eggs were cooked well but that's about as far as it goes. The muffins were stale the bacon was okay but there was hardly any of it. It had spinach on the menu but... More

Cosy location but food very average. Limited menu. I ordered bacon and eggs - was served dry toast with it - some butter would have been great. Fries we ordered for the table were soggy. My friend ordered eggs benedict and asked for no meat, however received the dish with salami. Staff were awkward and hovered around uneasily which doesn't... More

Courtesy of a voucher, five of us had a superb meal at the Olive Press. It was a four course menu with limited but some variety to choose from and it allowed our group to taste a few different dishes on offer. The food was excellent, hot when it was served and tasted delicious. We also went on a night... More

We rocked up here for lunch on Sunday with our Grabone voucher. Unfortunately we hadn't booked so couldn't be accommodated right away. Supposedly the the kitchen was busy but we couldn't even see that many patrons seated so not sure what the go was. Anyway we duly arrived back to be seated at a table after 40min exploring Devonport.
