The seating and environment wasn't that trendy and comfortable, a bit out dated! But the food was pretty decent - creative, fine and meticulous. Still, that's expected for something quite expensive.

Had a small dinner group (3 people) and decided to go with the chef surprise 5 course offering. Chef came out and presented each dish and not only did they make us feel like we were the only people in the restaurant, the food was the best I had in a very long time. Felt like we were the judges... More

We were a party of three and it was out first visit to this restaurant. I always feel a level of excitement when I try a new restaurant and dare I saw even trepidation. We are newcomers to Whangarei, having moved up from Auckland a few months ago. This was our first foray into fine-dining in our new home and... More

Had heard great things about this place but just never got around to going until recently. So pleased we finally did. The staff were wonderful and the food was absolutely amazing. We had a wonderful dining experience rather than just going out for dinner. Thank you for a great night

My friends and I went to dinner at A Deco and we were sitted in the middle of the room that felt a bit odd and it was right on top of the fire. However the food was very good and the service was also very good. The staff were polite and unobtrusive and we did not feel hurried. We... More

Our favourite restaurant in Whangarei and a multiple award wining establishment. We have dined at a Deco on numerous occasions and are always wowed by the exceptional food, the presentation and above all the friendly service provided by Will. Indeed we are lucky to have a restaurant of this caliber in Whangarei where attention to details is reflected in the... More
