Went here with two other family members on a gorgeous Friday evening around 7pm. the service was slow all night, but that wasn't really something I felt let this place down as the staff were friendly and clearly had a lot to do between the two of them! The food was what I was disappointed about. Each plate looked great... More

Top notch food, service and atmosphere, very classy. Staff are highly trained and professional. I've eaten in top restaurants in several countries and always find a Deco to be a cut above the rest. A great place for a special occasion, not cheap but a very special experience.

A great restaurant. The food is really good and served with style. Perhaps its easier to say what it isn't - A' Deco is not pretentious and its food is not the 2 dimensional fair that some places offer. I can highly recommend it. The owners have revamped a classic Art Deco building with a true appreciation of its heritage... More

Having dined in many NZ and International top rated restaurants, I find a Deco hard to beat. Having dined there on a previous occassion found us looking for that something extra special, and it was delivered in spades. We choose the chef's choice, 5 x course with matching wines. From the organic tomato soup to the Persian fairy floss coated... More

Sorry folks but this place blows Top Sail out of the muddy water in a heart beat. Better than Vinyl was. Better than anything in town. Better than anything on the beaches. For fine dining this place is up there with any other in Akl or London. Cant wait to go back. If you are looking for the best restaurant... More

I stayed in Whangarei as a base to go other places, and didn't expect too much from the place. I chose A Déco on a whim as it featured highly on this site, and eating solo I was reading Lonely Planet at my table when I found it was their top pick for places to eat in the town. I... More

Went to a Deco again with friends. Every time we come here we leave wanting to return . The salmon four ways is our favourite and hard to pass up. But the rest of the menu is equally as good. Service is friendly and informative as always. You can't go past this restaurant in Whangarei. We have dined in many... More

My husband and I love eating at A Deco. We dined here again over the weekend for our wedding anniversary, the third time we have been here in the past 3-4 months. The service was, as usual, impeccable. The staff are highly trained, friendly, very efficient and obliging. And the food is to die for. The menu is varied and... More

Spent an evening here for a friends birthday. There were 20 of us. The staff did such a fantastic job. Their system is great, we each had a number and so when we came to pay the head waiter knew exactly what we had had. The food was phenomenal. Far surpassed Tonic where we had recently eaten... We tried both... More

We spent a beautiful Saturday evening at the restaurant. The degastation menu was just devine: Beautifully arranged and full of flavour. Courses of lamb, fish, beef and the desert was to die for. The staff went out of their way to make it an enjoyable night. Pricy but well worth the money. Will be back!
