Our daughter had given us a voucher because she had heard it was a great restaurant. I had seen the building for many years and often wondered how it could stay in business with the economic climate the way it is. Well now I know how it has done so well. WE took advantage of the A Deco voucher on... More

I was walking from my motel and tripped over A Deco tucked away on Kamo Rd. You need to be admitted ( I haven't seen that since the 70's in Auckland :) ). Will, my tall handsome elegant waiter made me fell instantly welcome and looked after me all night with service that made this meal a true dining experience.... More

The chef at a Deco is creating flavoursome, imaginative dishes with well selected, high quality ingredients. We chose the tasting menu with matched wines and not a single course or glass disappointed. Staff are friendly and knowledgable and the limited seating allows great attention to be paid to every dish served.

Followed by pan seared Snapper with pearl barley, pilaff, fresh lime, mint & snow pea Salad, coconut lemongrass broth,... More

Beautiful building, fantastic wait staff who are extremely knowledgeable and professional, presentation of the food is the best, quality of the food is superb and the wine list is damn good. This restaurant is an all round top place to dine and experience. I had a vegetarian dish that was made especially for me and it was delicious.
