The food is good especially the desert. The service there is very homely, I traveled alone and eat alone but the waiter and waitress were so kind and friendly that made me feel surrounded by friends.

We did a coach tour of the North and South islands and the Amora was the best hotel we stayed at on the trip. The food was right up there as well in quality and service stakes

The restaurant has a very comprehensive menu and the meal we had was probably the best we experienced during 18 days, in both islands, of New Zealand. The "Chocolate Buffet" desert selection was beyond expectation. The main... More

Food was fantastic, served as requested and very quick service, think the name is a bit misleading as it is a fine dining restaurant not a grill. the staff were very helpful with choosing wine.
