You can sit and people watch at Auckland Viaduct Harbour whilst dining on FABULOUS food. We had the oysters to start and I have to say they were the biggest ones I have EVER seen in my life and so beautifully tasty. I had duck for my main course and my husband had the tuna - both dished were exceptional... More

We went as a group of around 10 on a weekday. Whilst it was understandably busy, we had to wait over 80 minutes for the mains to arrive - one member of the group had to abandon hers and take it back to the office, whilst others had to make the tough choice between enjoying the food and being late...

Been wanting to try this place since it opened. Made it last night for an anniversary dinner. Friendly staff, great food and a great location. Left happy and well fed. Will be back.

We were at this restaurant with a large party of guests. We were made very welcome on arrival. We had a set menu but with many choices, my sashimi entree was magnificent. I had eye fillet for main which was cooked to perfection and to finish I chose the Eton mess which I thor enjoyed, considering I usually don't eat... More

You just have to love the tuatara fritters. So many things on the menu remind of of food you had growing up, only it is better. Great flavours. Really nice open kitchen, it works perfectly. The wines are good and the staff are worth trusting, they picked the best wine of the night. Not pretentious, and a great night out.

We arrived around 11.30 and were quickly seated and given menus. After a perusing the delectable offerings we start ordering then were told by the waitress that lunch was not being served yet. After a few more minutes to pick other items we were able to order items that they were actually serving. The service was good. The waitress kept... More

Having dined here before we recommended to go there with friends. It is Restaurant month in Auckland and they had a set 3 course dinner with 2 choices for each course, as well as a la carte. The first thing the waiter advised was that one of the main courses was not available and replaced by a steak which had... More

The Foodstore is located at the Viaduct with excellent water & Marina views. Its also houses the Cloudy Bay Bar. We ordered the Ora King salmon sashimi with cucumber gazpacho & the Tuatua sweet corn & ham fitters for entree which were pretty ordinary. My hubby complained his fitters were boring & dry. My sashimi was tasty but I certainly... More

I was really excited about eating here as I had heard good things but have come away a little disappointed. Some friends and I visited for lunch recently the food nice but didn't wow me and quite pricey for what you get. The staff were attentive and friendly and the restaurant itself was lovely. Good food cooked well but I... More

Had a business dinner for three on a Thursday evening. Service was great, very attentive but not overpowering. The starters were OK, the cevice was really shashimi as there was no sign of the fish being cooked in lime or lemon juice, just raw fish, but tasty all the same. The tuatua fritter with corn and bacon hock had no... More
