Delicious way to spend a birthday

Made a reservation to celebrate my wife's birthday and we were certainly pleased with our experience. A great table located adjacent to the window to watch the world go by on Auckland Harbour was matched with delicious food and atmosphere. We ordered the Ciabata to nibble on. It was nice without... read more

My wife and I had an excellent dinner at Fish. The service was great, good wine list and most importantly, amazing seafood. The tuna my wife had was one of the best I have ever tasted in my life. Highly recommended.

I chose Fish after looking at Trip Advisor reviews of top Auckland restaurants. The occasion was a small family get together with 2 of party being visitors from Australia. I wanted a waterfront location but not a noisy or busy bistro. We had a lot of catching up to do so a quiet and private seating arrangement was important. The... More

A top meal always has to combine atmosphere, service and culinary expertise to reach that mark. This did all 3 in spades. The service was faultless and the view across the harbour is 2nd to none. My wife had the venison capaccio and I had the prawn and crayfish entrees. Both were simply a delight. We shared the catch of... More

We booked this for our eleventh wedding anniversary and had to change the time to eat early as we were going to the theatre. This meant we were the only diners for some time but, even so, Fish managed to produce a wonderful atmosphere and our waiter, Reuben, was perfectly attentive. Close consideration was given to our particular dietary needs... More

It is one of my favourite lunch spots. Have visited several times and really enjoy the ambience - great views of the harbour too. I celebrate a birthday and took along my young granddaughter. She had a great time, they were very child friendly and a good menu and very generous portions. The food was great and also generous portions.... More

We ate here last Sunday and both the setting and the food were excellent. We had a variety of different dishes and sides and every one was great. However, the service we received was awful. We were left for a good 10 mins after being seated with noone coming to take our drinks order until we asked. When we finally... More

The venue is stunning. The staff are what you expect from high end dining but without the pretentiousness. Very helpful and attentive. Never a dirty dish or empty glass left to sit for too long. The food. What can I say? Bluff Oysters were on the menu the night we visited and at $10 each I nearly passed them up.... More
