We had two sets of international visitors in the same week, so we decided to take them to The Foodstore to showcase New Zealand's produce and from previous positive experience dining here.

We picked this restaurant because it was listed in the Entertainment Book and it was the best surprised we have had so far. The food was delicious and very fine and the service was excellent. The only "negative" point was the bloody Mary cocktail which was so loaded with garlic that is was barely drinkable. The wine on the other... More

Fantastic menu and service. Truffle mash to die for. Understand it is being made into an Oyster Bar so when back in Auckland would definitely look this place up.

The service as warm and personable here. I had halloumi salad, beef cheeks, and butterscotch pannacotta. There were sides of rocket and pecorino salad as well as hand cut chips. The food portions were generous and so tasty.

An Australian friend recommended we try the Food Store while we were in Auckland. We were not disappointed. The service we received from our Brazilian-kiwi waiter was awesome, as was each course we sampled. NZ food at it's finest!

Cheerful welcome and shown straight to seat. Interesting menu, however wasabi oysters for starters were very bland but the fish of the day main was excellent, but then the rhubarb and apple crumble saw an uneven battle between the fruit with the apple the overwhelming winner. Service friendly and prompt but as the venue is busy they don't leave much... More

We were recommended to dine here by a local New Zealander. Truly, it was one of the best meals we have ever eaten! My Scottish beef filet with portobello mushrooms in a wine sauce was done to perfection. Two family members thoroughly enjoyed the fish special which was a mild white fish. The pecorino mash potatoes were savored. My son's... More

Excellent food, great atmosphere and welcoming staff! It's Fashion Week so was welcomed with a goody bag each on our table. The Chambord Bramble is a must try!

We shared two starters of sourdough bread with an olive oil and pomegranate balsamic dip between four people. They were are great indication of the quality and presentation of the meal that was to follow. My main course of the market fish (Tuna) with potato gratin was one of the best fish dishes I have been served. The large serving... More
