This restaurant is situated in the Hilton Hotel Auckland which sits on a pier. The restaurant is on the end of the pier and has fantastic views. We went to this restaurant at the last minute. The waiting staff were very attentive, and the food, which was primarily a fish selection, was superb. I would recommend it to anyone and... More

Fish was the choice for my partners work function. We were treated to cocktails in the bar downstairs. I had a peach bellini which was delightful. And my partner had an Emersons pilsner. Our orders were taken from the $95 menu by the attentive waiter. All our food was amazing. For entrée we had the crisp battered prawns, and yellowfin... More

We booked a dinner for our anniversary. We were presented with silverware that was not clean. We ordered cocktails but were told that the bar staff was too busy to service our request. After about 20 minute wait, the staff finally managed to attend us. We placed an order for starter (soup) and bread (both to share). However, soon after... More

We wanted to kick off our holiday with a great meal and were staying at the Hilton so booked a table at Fish. The staff were really good and our waiter was very patient and attentive without being intrusive. Wine list was good and it was really hard to chose from the menu as everything looked really good.

This was the best meal we had during our two-week trip in NZ. I ate the grilled yellow tuna and my husband lamb fillet. For desert we chose the ricotta cake with cinnamon ice-cream, also special and very tasty. The service was excellent and overall this restuarant felt very proffesional.

I'll get the tiny niggles done first! The maître d' said hello then spent a few minutes faffing about putting change into the till, whilst we stood looking a bit untidy at the entrance, before showing us to our seat which was in a front position looking over the harbour. Lovely! Then the menus came - tatty at the edges... More

Two things: 1. Location - Hilton Hotel, breakfast restaurant. Amazing 180 degree views of Auckland Harbour so you can sit inside or outside on the covered deck to eat your breakfast and read the paper. So very enjoyable to see the seaviews, watch the ferries and boats traverse in and out of harbour in a very quiet setting. 2. Breakfast... More

Sunday lunch overlooking the beautiful Auckland Harbour. The food and wine were superb but not outrageously priced. The maitre de and waiter were warm and welcoming. I have been to Fish in several capacities both work and pleasure and whether I'm dressed in jeans or evening dress, the welcome is the same, impeccable. The location is the best in Auckland,...
