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.

My friend and I dined here while staying at the Hilton. I am gluten and dairy free and nothing was a problem. We both enjoyed the fish meals that we ordered cooked to perfection. The view over the harbour is amazing at night. We will definitely return. The service was excellent. Thank you.

The restaurant has a great location, excellent service and specially the food is great. My favorite was the tiramisu dessert that it gets prepared by the chef in front of you using liquid nitrogen to frezze it instantly is a good experience and the taste is better.
