Beautiful fresh seafood

Visited on a Monday night and got the set menu - 3 courses of beautiful fresh seafood finished with some perfect NZ Pinot Gris. Couldn't have asked for better value fine dining. Wine list is on the expensive side though but that won't stop me from visiting again.

Dined at Fish @ the Hilton Auckland for a quiet business dinner to celebrate a staff promotion. Although getting to/from the hotel on the wharf could be improved with more information on parking and access (parking on the wharf cost us almost as much as dinner!) the restaurant is superb and food excellent.

Beautifully prepared seafood that has not been fussed too much with. The chef relies on the quality of the fish to come through in simple preparation but using the accompaniments to create a fabulous meal. We dined here several times over the course of our stay and was impressed each time. Great value was a promotional 3 course set menu... More

Went with a few friends to try the restaurant of the month menu. Compliments goes to the chef (who we were told is named Shane) for the amazing food. The mushroom soup to start was really great. So were the tarakihi, the mussels and the salmon. And the chocolate fondant was the best I ever had. To top it all,... More

Great view, great services, great atmosphere, quiet, clean....we ordered set menu maybe it was a wrong choice. Cibetta bread was good with homemade dip (already high on salt), figh cake entree was ok but the sauce was too heavy. The two mains were again very salty and the salmon was too cooked/dry. Disappointed as there are many places with the... More

Dear TaipeitoParis, I am disappointed to hear you did not enjoy your experience at FISH, and troubled by your comments. The ciabatta bread dip has no salt in it at all from information in our chef, maybe the balsamic vinaigrette did not sit well with you as it is rather sweet? The sauce with the fish cakes is on the... More

From the time we arrived the service was outstanding. Warm and friendly atmosphere. I had the 63C free-range egg / smoked potato / mushrooms / toasted cracked wheat, it was so good I could have eaten another one. Then I had the Salt baked beetroot / pickled beetroot / goat's curd / carmalised walnuts / crisp kale, was just delicious.... More

We had a fabulous dinner here the service was good although,they didn't have a wine that was on the list. The location is great and a busy part of the harbour with all the ferries coming in. The dessert Nitro is a must to have and very entertaining watching it be prepared at your table. We will be back :)

Really enjoyed my recent dinner here - sometimes hotel restaurants can be hit and miss, however I'm happy to say that FISH was great! Service was OK, though I kept having to ask for water.
