A must to eat at!

Fantastic food, beautifully prepared and delicious. This is our special occasion place and our friends from New York raved about how good the food was here! Best he has eaten at in the world he said! And he has traveled! If you can get a table here, do it! it's a degustation delight!

The choices were whether to have the 5 course or 8 course menu and whether to choose the wine match. We went with the 5 course, being small eaters. It was sufficient with an amuse bouche and warmed ciabatta bread. Often when you have a degustation some of courses are better than others. Not here. All 5 courses were excellent.... More

My husband and i dined here for valentines day, there was a set degustation menu which sounded lovely, we chose to pair it with the matching wines provided. In each course we hoped for a little more, the dessert was delicious and the amuse bouche was tasty but everything else seemed a little lacking. The components of the dish that... More

Dominion road may be the last place you would think of to indulge in a top class degustation, but there it was, discreetly placed with minimal street advertising that took us a couple of stops to find. A fairly small interior with a pleasant ambiance and attentive service. Each dish was simply superb, plated beautifully and enough information to whet... More

We did the 8 course degustation and were not disappointed. Everything was perfect from the food to the service and atmosphere. This is also one of the most well priced degustation menus in auckland.

The evening was more than perfect. The staff welcomes you warmly, immediately an aperitif is offered and the menu is presented. We did not take wine, but the sommelier had an excellent choice for us. We went with the five course menu which was such perfect! I could have not wish for more and the quality was amazing. We will... More

You have to give this place credit. Knowledgable staff and attentive service. The food presents like a work of art and for 9 courses is the right quantity and structure. But was it the best degustation I've had? Not really. There are others where Ive enjoyed the flavours of the food more, but I guess that's a personal taste. Also... More

My husband surprised me here for lunch on our 22nd wedding anniversary. I was worried as I'm a bit fussy with main meal proteins, but I loved everything. The dessert was the standout, it was like it was made just for ME! The salted caramel icecream, the licorice gel bits, the dark chocolate, the passionfruit cream - not to mention... More

Went for a friends birthday last night and had a superb experience. Often with degustation menus I find the experience can become tiresome - not so at Merediths; timing and portion sizes were spot on, every dish immaculate. Great atmosphere - not stuffy at all but still feels like a special night out.
