Just to let anyone who may be considering visiting Fisherman's Table know, they have definitely closed down (January/February 2014). Bluewater Bar and Grill has opened on the same site - I'm about to write a Trip Advisor review on them, but, in short I wouldn't recommend going there. It's a pity to see the end of Fisherman's Table with it's... More

What a shame after our perfect experience this time round, to learn the restaurant is closing! My wife and I went for an early dinner before the movies, and had not made a booking. This was no problem for them, though the staff member at the front desk did mention the table he was giving us has another booking in... More

A family favourite - kids menu includes free ice cream sundae. All you can eat salad bar with all main meals. I have been to both the Oriental Bay and Paekakariki ones in the past 12 months and loved them both.

Great location and great views over the harbour towards the CBD. The service was poor, probably the result of under staffing. The food was good to poor but the prices are reasonable. We had a poor experience at the Paekakariki location some years ago and had been given a voucher so we tried the Wellington location but little has improved.... More

We have been coming to this restaurant over the years with the family. This place has certainly not changed much as far as its food goes. I think the steak is of good quality. The fish of the day can be quite tasty if you like to eat fish off its bones. The salad bar is always quite a good... More

Fantastic location but dreadful restaurant. I have been there a few times over the years. It has been pretty ave for a long time, but was taken back how bad it was. I say there is a lack of pride as no one who seriously invites guests to dinner leaves a pile of litter at the entrance for them to... More

If you like simple cheap food like myself, this place can't be beaten. For $15.95 i can stuff my self at the all you can eat salad, which to be fair, has a lot more then just salad. Then the meal is like a bonus after i am already full. Always great service. Don't go here if you are looking... More

As usual the bill was completely wrong. We had to sort it out amongst ourselves. No apologies and speaking in foreign language half the time. The food however was good.

This restaurant is worth visiting. OK the food is good not excellent, but for service, view, atmosphere (we sat outside), it would take some beating.

Food mediocre but the situation is superb, set over the water with fantastic views. Worth going for the location. Also - climb up the stairs outside to the roof top for a great view.
