Auckland is full of sushi and fast food so this is a gem! Fresh, innovative and great tasting food with a fine dining twist in a beautiful cozy outdoor/indoor restaurant. Very chic!

We went to Ortolana for dinner having previously had breakfast at the restaurant. We were a group of four and decided to have 4 different starters to share. All of them were delicious, beautifully presented and as described by our waitress. The main courses were equally enjoyable and again we chose 4 different dishes but were not so keen to... More

Friends had told us about this charming place, with great food, and a cute atmosphere. We weren't disappointed - lovely food, friendly service, good choices. The only slight downside was that it isn't really a 'kid friendly' menu - they did their best but our 9 year old wasn't convinced. We'll return without the kids!

★☆☆☆☆ There were broken pieces of glass (clear plastic maybe) in the pasta. I let the floor staff know and the manager came to say it's all been 'taken care of' and he'd take the dish off the bill. Really it wasn't the money I was concerned about.. I had already chewed on some pieces and swallowed the cracks without... More

My husband and I ate here, as recommended by our hotel. The restaurant looked very pretty in the courtyard setting with the sparkly lights above. We ste inside but others sat outside with blankets and heat lamps. The food was very good and some dishes unusual. The ingredients were all fresh and excellently prepared. We would recommend this restaurant

Great place to fine, everything was excellent, flavours, variety and service. Extra good to be able to watch the chef make the pasta from our table.

Meditteranean style cuisine, using fresh, light & healthy ingredients, served efficiently and quickly in a small, contemporary styled restaurant near Britomart - just my style of restaurant. This was my second visit, with the same family group and I plan to return. But if you are looking for 'a big feed' or you are a 'steak & fries' person, then... More

Ortolana is in a lovely BritoMart courtyard location and we choose to sit outside. We got the last available table, got our menus, water,- good start. Other than our delightfully talkative waitress, my food experience was much less than satisfactory by my standards. And not a mention was made about 1/2 my plate being left. When I told my server...

The Ortolana Restaurant is located in the heart of the trendy chic Britomart. The decor is very modern with nice wall couches, exposed brick walls & large wooden tables with overhanging smart lights. I just happened to be walking by so dropped in for a cappuccino which ended up being very good. Loved the attention the staff gave me &... More

Wonderfully different menu made from locally grown produce. The meal was perfect and the service exceptional. We have been here many times.. breakfast, lunch, and dinner... it always delivers. We will be back soon.
