Just brilliant

Perhaps the best eating experience I've ever had. The food was great and the service was first class.One little, slight negative being that the seats are very close together.

A friend took us here again as a thank you.... very generous of them as this is not an inexpensive restaurant. It was degustation and there was no provision for anything else which I found a little shortsighted. It was a choice of a $80 or $120 degustation menu. I myself find it difficult to even get through 3 courses... More

My partner and I arrived from Melbourne late Thursday evening for a 4 day getaway to Auckland sans kids. I had read up on Meredith's and thought the 4 course Friday Taittinger degustation menu would be a great start to our weekend. Each course was incredible - a delicious, unique and thoughtful combination of flavours, colours and textures. Each course... More

3.5 stars. Service was lovely, ambience also very nice. Shame that all the food was overwhelmingly average. Champagne was expensive at $27 a glass..

The best degustation menu ever. It was 9 course menu but was beautifully presented. We didnt feel like we had to role out of the restaurants the portions were spot on and well balanced. Every course was one to remember.

Not only are the dishes beyond anyone's taste bud dreams but Michael himself is one of the most generous chefs in the business. His support of those in need through his creativity is an example to all. Superb food and a sensational human being.

As a group of 8 we had the 9 course degustation, each course was a complete joy. The attention to detail in presentation was matched by the experience when tasting. Enjoyed every mouthful and would put this as my top restaurant in Auckland

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
