We have been to Eight.Two several times, with friends and for a couple of family celebrations. We had dinner there last night, and used a GrabOne voucher. Each course was beautifully presented and perfectly cooked, we really enjoyed our dinner. The restaurant itself has a nice ambience and the staff are friendly and look after you well. It is always...

We have been to Eight.Two several times and it is always superb. We went on a Grabone voucher last Saturday night and once again were very impressed. It has a great atmosphere, attentive friendly and knowledgeable staff, deliciously different food flavours, and to top it all off top quality wines available in 250 ml carafe's that enable sampling different wines...

We had a Grabone voucher for Eight.Two and booked for Saturday evening. The restaurant has a nice ambience and although busy was not overly noisy like some places where you can't hear yourself think. We had 3 courses plus amuse bouche for $99 which I think given the standard of the place was a good deal. I found the drinks... More

If you're centrally located, this is well worth the quick drive over the harbour bridge. It's s stunning renovated villa and exudes charm - as does the owner. The service from the time we walked in until leaving was absolutely charming. The food was stunning too. A small wine list but all were exceptionally selected and good value too. Go... More

We hosted a party of 16 and they did a great job. The food was excellent and the service was exceptional. The menu, although small was very good and there was something for everyone. I had the Market fish which was awesome especially the broth.

If you are up for a drive or taxi trip across the bridge, this restaurant is well worth it. We had the 4 course set menu and every course was a mouth watering dish done in the NZ modern style that is full of quality ingredients. The restaurant is in a refurbished villa in Birkenhead, all white interior and very... More

First visit to 8.2. Great welcome by the staff. We enjoyed a cocktail in the lounge area before heading to our table. The three course menu for $70 was excellent value. Foie Gras, eye fillet and manchego. Only wish would be for a great cheddar to choose. Good service throughout, though not very busy.

This was our second visit to Eight.Two. The first visit was a group of 7, mainly visitors from San Francisco who loved it and the second was a family birthday which we again loved. Why? The food is really good, the dessert menu does not do the flavours or expectation of your dish any favours but they are excellent and... More

We visited it on Saturday for the very first time and where very impressed: food was excellent (roast pork as an entrée, duck confit as a main, and chocolate desert were truly outstanding), service – attentive, wine selection – sufficient (not extensive, but practically wines on the list were of a great quality, and the majority of them were of...
