Eight isn't cheap at NZ$95 pp plus wine, but it is a great place to dine. It's a mixture of buffet and food cooked to order but everything about it top notch. The seafood has to be a highlight, with a succulent array of oysters, prawns, smoked salmon and other delicacies from Auckland's bountiful seas. Well worth a visit.

One of my favourite restaurants that I continue to rave about after months/years. I have been a few times and it never fails to impress. Breakfast and dinners are incredible at Eight (though I've never been for lunch). It can be a bit pricey, but the quality of the food has always been fantastic during my visits.

The first time had nothing else but seafood, Started with the prawns and rock oysters, followed by the sushimi and sushi, finally has grilled hapuka, salmon and terakihi with assorted side salads. Had no room for deserts, although they looked lovely. Second time started... More

I went there for breakfast and it was amazing. The service of the staff as they show me to the table and showed me where the buffet was. The food was amazing and there was lots of choices. I enjoyed all the hot food and the crepes or waffles but the only thing wrong was having to wait a while... More

Wasn't sure what to expect after reading lots of mixed reviews on here! But we had such a great night out, not much to fault at all. If you are a seafood or meat lover, then try this buffet! The oysters were so fresh it felt like I was eating them by the ocean off the rocks (which I have... More

Overall pretty good value for $70 per head in weekend. The options are good although it is spread in a very tight way so you feel that it is limited. Service was good but stations got really packed so go at 12 noon exactly. All food was good not great but kind of what you expect when it's buffet.
