By far the best place I have eaten on Aucklands Viaduct. Beyonce and JayZ were reported to have eaten here and given awesome reviews so it was a must for my guests and I to dine here. Food is awesome. Staff is great! Recommend anyone to eat here! A++

We stumbled onto this one whilst wandering along Auckland harbour-side and booked for that night based on the elegant appearance and the appealing menu. We were not disappointed. It was certainly the finest meal we had in 11 days travelling around the North Island. It was pretty busy for a Monday night but the quality of the food, the charming... More

Have been here several times even though I promised myself I would not be back. There is nothing particularly bad about this place but it just fails to excite me. The menu is boring and the execution is average. The service is ok but not consistent. Soul is in a prime location on viaduct harbour and is quite busy but... More

Fantastic food, gorgeous location and excellent service. Four of us had a meal on a very busy Friday night. The staff did a fantastic job getting us a prime table with a wonderful view. The food was amazing & good value considering the location. Would definitely go back when visiting Auckland again.

Had lunch at Soul and could not fault at all. Service was good, food was fantastic. We shared 3 different plates between the two of us and all three plates were fantastic. If we had been staying in Auckland longer we would definitely have been back. Plates were also pretty good value considering quality at around $15-$20 a plate.

Had a great Monday here for by birthday. The service was very good - very friendly (Brian was very nice and helpful). We wanted to have a long lunch and they were very accommodating. The food was spaced and the quality was very nice. Quite a range to chose from. Whilst it is on the front and in the middle... More
