We had spent several hours at the Auckland Art Gallery and by the time we walked down to the viaduct we were tired and hungry. We asked to look at the menu and were interested in a couple of the dishes but when we went to order them were told that those dishes were only on the dinner menu. We looked at the lunch menu and decided we really did want the items on the dinner menu so the helpful waiter trotted off to the kitchen to ask the chef. We were in luck. I ordered the twice cooked souffle with gorgonzola, poached pears, candied walnuts and gourmet greens. My partner ordered the seared yellow tail with sesame seed and wasabi crust, papaya and mango with peanut, noodle salad and a chilie, lime, mint dressing.. We shared a crispy calamari appetizer with szechuan pepper. The squid was tender and flavourful and the mains could not be faulted. The chocolate fondant dessert (I have always called this a lava brownie) that we shared was hot and gooey in the middle and garnished with salted caramel and milk chocolate sauces, vanilla ice cream and a caramel biscuit. Yum! It was all lovely and sitting on the quay with the cruise ship and ferry passengers coming and going was fascinating.
The wait staff was excellent and the food was very good.
