The view of the bay is great. Our food was very good. My fish was raw in the middle and not only did the chef apologize and beautifully retook it, they refused to charge us for a delicious entree. Very nice without being horrible expensive or pretentious

The waiter was very knowledgable and went through the specials and menu with us. The food was a good standard, delivered at a very pleasant pace and presented very... More

Fish continues to impress for excellent cuisine, service and of course location. Our party are a critical and discerning bunch of Kiwis - out for a great night - and we were not disappointed. (Kim Dotcom, Bomber Bradbury and Internet Mana team at the adjacent table appeared to be very contented and relaxed diners on the night). We selected from... More

I had the salmon as my main and although I enjoyed it, I found it a little salty. The creme brûlée to finish was moreish and given the fullness of... More

The fish are well presented and cooked with point. And it is a Frenchwoman who writes it! But the latency is long. It is possible that it either so that the customer orders another wine bottle to spend time. If the luxury is liked, why not but there is as well for less expensive in NZ.

Fish has fresh seafood with farm-to-table veggies and fruits. The food is amazing. The wine list is extensive. The Maître d' and his team are great.
