The Tapas menu is fabulous. Definitely has a total kiwi twist and not a bad thing, this includes the size of the Tapas being quite big too. Everything is cooked well, delicious and fresh! Staff are friendly if a little slow off the mark for drink top ups. The location is great up the artsy end of town. The restaurant/bar... More

Would not recommend

Decanta is one of the worst places I have ever visited. The platter that we got was below average, bad quality and tiny for three people. The service was among the worst I've ever experienced. The bar maids need a serious adjustment in their attitudes. There was not even any music playing for the first half hour. Just dead silence... More
