“Salad perfection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2014

Went here for lunch. Service was prompt and the salad I had was superb. Fresh, full of flavour and a generous serving. Great atmosphere. It is so good to not be disappointed when you choose a place to eat.

“Special Dining”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2014

This was the second time I have dined here, both times I have thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We were on a time limit and we were catered for promptly in fact we finished dining 15 mins beforehand. We didn't order deserts but our grand daughter aged 3 had a special desert which the waitress ordered for her, "her name in chocolate" written on a plate which our grand daughter got to lick!! These treats make this restuarant special as well as the friendly staff, who know their menu and wine. Divine food, even down to special beef burgers, yummy! And you must go to the bathroom when you dine here. Look around you it is truely ironique.

“Great Coffee and Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2014

Charlie is fantastic at making coffee!!!
This place is roomy (so you don't feel hemmed in like at other eateries in Mt Eden). The staff are so friendly and polite, going out of their way to make your meal experience good.
The food is well cooked, exactly as requested and there is plenty of it. The food arrives in good time whether there is 2 or 12 people. Have been here several times now with different group sizes and for different meals (brunch, lunch, dinner, afternoon tea). Every meal has been superb, every drink has been complemented on, and the service wonderful every time.
Well done Ironique - long may you prosper.

“Great Coffee!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2014

This place does not look like much from the front, but there is a large courtyard out the back with a range of seating. It was lovely and spacious with huge umbrellas to shade us, first of all from the sun and then moments later in typical Auckland style, the rain.
A typical cafe menu with a few specials, some vegetarian options and a counter display of delicious looking cakes. One of us had the eggs benedict, one had the chicken salad and I had the rosti and chorizo -we were all happy with our meals which were generous in size and tasty. One of the girls had also ordered a side of wedges with her dish which looked lovely but was just too much food! Two of us ordered iced coffees -we were asked by other customers what they were as they looked amazing.
One of the girls had her daughter in a pram with her - we just had to get down one step to get to the tables out the back. There is seating outside on the deck before the step if you are in a wheelchair or have a big pram. Because of the space out the back the little girl was able to wonder around our table without getting in anyone's way.
The only negatives -the flies appeared when we started eating which was a bit off-putting and when you pay for your meal at the front of the cafe you stand in a narrow passage way, getting in the way of waiting staff and customers!
I'll definitely go back as we had a lovely relaxing meal.
