Interesting, classy setting.

The old villa-style setting, with a number of rooms and a courtyard make for a very attractive setting. However, tables do need to be an appropriate size! The table for our group of six was in one of the bay windows and was such a tight fit that the waiter could not walk around it, thus having to... read more

This restaurant has been around for 43 years, and I got the feeling that we were getting a 1970 Auckland experience. It was just missing the prawn cocktail starter... Of course, you are getting a 'full service' restaurant with fine food, but it's the details that aren't quite up to scratch. The steak was 'very slightly' overdone, although my wife's... More

This is a place I try to get to as often as I can when visiting Auckland and each visit leaves me more and more eager to come back.

One needs a proper reservation to get in the welcome door to this restaurant. It's far from typical-it's like eating in tiny open rooms, so you can have a conversation without a stranger listening or checking out what you're eating! Their food is to die for. I've had their souffle several times-it's rich and puffy and perfect! Every time we... More

We eat out a lot but hadn't tried Antoine's. My partner bought me here for my birthday dinner and the whole experience was just wonderful. The seating is intimate and so comfortable, I find it a real treat to have comfy chairs in a restaurant, not many do as they're so focused on being hip instead of comfortable these days.... More

Eight people. 55 - 70 yrs. Good friends. Had not seen each other for a while. Could not have been a better setting. Unhurried, friendly and extremely capable service. Perfect sized round table. Enough distance between tables for sense of privacy. Well lit and acoustically exemplary. (We could see our food and hear each other.) Incredible food and very generous... More

The only place in Auckland, for me: Silver Service, and I do not receive a lecture about the culinary delights of which I will partake... The food is traditional (Like everything else) and superb. Also the only restaurant I have been able to pre-arrange to have my selected wines opened beforehand to permot breathing...

Many restaurants claim to be but this one definitely is - Fine Dining. Amazing/imaginative menu, lovely interior, service is off the scale good. You get what you pay for, it's not cheap but it's worth every cent.
