“Great desserts; fabulous location!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

We booked the Sugar Club as a way to have some fancy desserts and also go up the Sky Tower. The lady at the bottom of the Sky Tower was just so helpful and friendly booking us in and really made an effort to get us up there, when it was such a busy night. The desserts were absolutely amazing!! A real highlight - and we also experienced the great view!!

“This has to be the best meal in New Zealand”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

visiting from the states and were taken there by local friends. Expensive but worth every penny. equals August in New Orleans. Peter Gordon is a genius! creative original and every dish at the table was superb. sits on top of the sky Orbit and a visit to the tower first to see Auckland from the 51floor added to the evening. If you don't mind $100 a head..run do not walk to this establishment

“Awesome night out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2014 via mobile

So mant times restaurants with stunning views are almost lazy because they can be....

This couldn't be further from the truth on top of the sky tower at the sugar club.

From the moment we arrived we experienced a wonderful night of excellence from the pre dinner drinks, the service and the food.. Simply stunning.. Can't wait to return

“Spectacular view with food and service to match”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

Four of us decided to ring out the old year with a late lunch at the Sugar Club. So glad we made this decision as the food was very tasty and a menu so interesting we could not decide what to order. In the end we each had 5 courses You order per person from two to 5 courses priced per number of courses ordered. We arrived a bit early so decided to have a seat in the small lounge area where you could watch the bungy jumpers and sky walkers prepare for their adventure.
We were then shown to our table with a fantastic view from the 53rd floor. One of our high light dishes was the Saffron paddle crab. I could have eaten two of these dishes, rich but ever so delish. Octopus with smoked mash, thai venison salad and the crayfish were also very good. We really look forward to visiting this restaurant again to try some new dishes and revist some others. The deserts were out there. The basil and white chocolate mousse was fresh and like nothing we have experienced and the peanut butter parfait with enoki mushrooms was well worth making room for. Service from start to finish was ecellent and free sparkling water was poured through out the meal.
The view over the Auckland harbour and bridge was great and we had fun watching the sky walkers get their photos taken and giving them a wave. We look forward to a return visit to the Sugar Club.
