Excellent Meal

My husband and I spent our last meal here of our three week Australian and New Zealand trip and we were very satisfied. The fish was excellent. (We had very good fish as a rule in AU and NZ.) We started to order the fish of the day as got smarter about our food choices. We had a fish I... read more

i am hoping this was just not a good night, waiting 5 minutes to be greeted (understaffed ?). Service then improved. Oysters - great. Kids meals - over cooked chicken tenders for one, the others fish fine. Mains - seafood stew was a good mix, however probably lacking in content. Steak - sorry but overlooked and under seasoned. The glass... More

We enjoyed our meal here. It was the best meal we had in over a couple of weeks in NZ, and we generally ate very well. Delicious fish, inventive recipes and beautifully presented. We had excellent service and the recommended NZ wine was perfect for the food and to our taste. The cocktails were good too. We sat outside on... More

By its name, you expect great fish and that's what you get. My wife and friends enjoyed a sunset dinner with views of the harbor and cruise ship. The waiter was adequate but not as friendly as most of the waiters we had experienced in New Zealand. Fish also offered a good New Zealand wine list and cocktails. If you... More

We spent our last night in NZ after a month here. We hoped for a wonderful experience and a great seafood meal, we were not disappointed. From the amazing sunset view of a sailboat race to the classy reception we were given as we entered to the meal, wine and very attentive staff it was a 5 star evening. We... More

Went to FISH for my birthday lunch and was so impressed. Fantastic and attentive service, amazing wine and the food was sublime. The setting is right on the water and is beautiful. Free parking right by the restaurant if you are eating there which is an absolute bonus as well.

This is what you would expect from the Hilton and then some. Both the food and service were without fault and a magnificent view of the harbour, if you get a chance....go there!

Staying at the Hilton so first night decided to try the restaurant mostly for the views but we were surprised by the the quality of the food and the service (thank you Oliver) both were second to none try the OYSTERS. Have a cocktail in the bar to kick off the evening if in Auckland try it. Recommended.

service took for ever but luckly the views and the wine selection are fab. I had a fantastic meal, couldn't fault it but unfortunately my experience wasn't shared by the other diners. Food was returned and took an additional 40mins to come back to the table by which time all others had finished their meal... Fish has the best oysters... More
