I did alot of research to find a fine dining restaurant to celebrate our wedding anniversary.Fish ticked all the boxes, and there were elements that were excellent and some that needed more polishing.The evening started out very well, with easy free parking, a very nice touch, thank you Hilton, and a warm welcome from the staff at the door.

After researching TA for a good Auckland restaurant booked a table here at the start of our NZ holiday. We could not have had a better evening - food was excellent, service was great and the view over the waterfront was superb. We both had fish (would you want anything else in a place with that name?) and it was... More

Booked this restaurant from Australia based on previous reviews and was not disappointed. We were meeting friends of 50 years who live in Auckland for lunch while stopping off for a day on a cruise. True to their promise we were shown to a table in the alfresco area right at the front with a great view of the harbour.... More

We ate here one quiet Tuesday lunch time when transiting between Tahiti and Sydney with a longish layover in Auckland. It was perfect . We had a table overlooking the harbour, the sun was out, the wine and food was delicious. The a la carte menu looked great but we took advantage of the reasonably priced 3 course special lunch...

We had a lovely evening dining in Fish on the Auckland waterfront. The food was delicious, but what really made our evening was the fantastic service - Patrik was an outstanding waiter and was obviously enthusiastic about his job and the food. Good atmosphere and yummy food (but for a price). I definitely recommend if you are looking for a... More

Came in with my partner after a last minute change in plans. We went up early and the staff were very welcoming letting us know they opened at 12 and if we would like to have a drink in bellini downstairs while we wait (cocktails were fab) we came back up at 12 and were seated with the best view...

The restaurant is beautifully situated one level up from the water. We both ate fish (what else in this restaurant) and thoroughly enjoyed it. We shared a fantastic chocolate fondant for dessert and I soon wished I had eaten it all it was so good. Staff were very attentive and friendly. Well worth a visit

Great ambiance and lovely view of the harbour. Attentive and friendly staff. The food is very good, however, the waiter advised only limited quantities available of 3 items on the menu - surprising in such a large restaurant.

My wife has gluten and dairy allergies, and the kitchen handled it with no problem. They have gluten free bread options, and adjusted her dish to remove dairy. They didn't blink an eye with her requests and the food came out perfect! It's certainly pricey, but was also very good.
