On Saturday 5th April 2014 we went to a Deco with a wedding gift voucher for $150. My husband needs Gluten Free food so right from the start this was a problem as they did not understand what it meant. We had a bottle of wine and the starter was okay, but no gluten free bread alternative etc We both... More

We went with friends from Auckland to this wonderful restaurant last night.We are locals & have been many times before but it is always fantastic. It is no surprise that aDeco restaurant and chef Brenton Low have won so many awards. From the moment you walk in you are made to feel welcome. The host/waiter is friendly & attentive &... More

Their mid week bistro meals are excellent value for money although smaller pprtions it is very well cooked and delicate. Excellent wine match and overall the best steak for the price I have had in whangarei.

We have been to A'Deco several times and never been disappointed. It is so right for a special occasion. Alas we live slightly out of town so it requires special transport arrangements if we are to enjoy the wine that goes with each course of the Degustaion menu. Fantastic food and great service always

This is one of my favourite restaurants in Whangarei. It is more of a formal dining restaurant. The food is always great and nicely presented, the service is impeccable and every time we dine there we always feel good about our dining experience. Top marks a Deco......

With out a doubt a Deco is Whangarei's finest restaurant. Best food, best presentation, best staff. Occasion dining.

As we were staying up the road from the restaurant we decided to try have dinner here and they obligingly fitted us in. We had salmon four ways, snapper, lamb and a wonderful lemon dessert which was a tasting experience like no other. On reflection we should have had their 95 dollar five course tasting menu which is good value... More

Food expertly presented, well cooked & amazing flavours. Generally the staff were really good with one weak link. The decor and atmosphere is simple but appropriate. The only thing that let them down was that the tap water was tepid. The cost level is high but for a special occasion it is worth the experience.
