Had a business dinner here and was really impressed. Portion size is typically small for this type of restaurant but the quality was absolutely top notch

Visited on a cold wet evening - there weren't many patrons about, so we thought we should get a good meal. Sadly not the case - menu was somewhat limited and pricey for what it was. The fish was just average - and the service much the same.

The blend of iconic NZ flavours with refined dishes left me wanting more. The kingfish ceviche in particular was a memorable entree that set a high standard for the rest of the night, thankfully the other dishes didn't disappoint. Outstanding dishes served in a more casual setting make this restaurant refreshingly different.

A lazy Sunday saw us wandering through Viaduct looking for a feed. Ended up at foodstore and their brunch menu. Was an awesome decision as the food was a total delight. Wife had the pancakes which were probably the highlight. 3 massive pancakes that you will struggle to get through. Eggs were pretty good too.

I went to this restaurant with nothing in mind and came out very happy indeed. The swordfish was done immaculately and they did what I asked for. The special spices were indeed wonderful on their on chips. The wine went down very well but it was expensive.

Lovely restaurant with a dockside view that specializes in New Zealand sourced food. My scampi tails starter and duck main course were outstanding and my wife’s gnocchi were as well. The wine list by the glass or carafe was very good and we had charming and efficient service to boot. The apple crumble desert was also very interesting and tasty.... More

Menu looked great and we were served by a great waiter. With this location I would have expected top class food considering the prices. Sorry to say the scotch was only just acceptable and the duck did not fair any better. The crumble had not crumble to speak of and was cold. There are so many better places to eat... More

Stayed in Auckland for a long weekend and caught up with friends on the first evening. We headed out late for dinner ( usually not good in AKL where restaurants tend to close early by other city standards) but we found this place and we could still get a table. We had to wait at the bar for about 20... More

The Beverage attendant was certainly on his game on the night of the 8th, and is to be commended. The meals were also of an excellent standard, a group of five of us could not fault the Entrees and Mains that we ordered, i think a couple went to order the scallop dish, to be told there were no scallops,...
