“Top notch seafood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013 via mobile

I can't say enough good things about about the food. Tasty, fresh, artistic, thoughtful, genuine they have it covered.
My only slight grouse was the staff: we had an awful long wait between greeting and first course and between other courses as well. The waitress we had was a bit bossy as well.
I would recommend people to go there - great food.

“Great fish restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

We ate here in February and were not disappointed. The location close to the seafront is excellent and we had a table with views over the harbour which was lovely. The quality of the food was very high, and the service was also efficient and friendly. Our only slight complaint was that there was a table of 10 next to us. They were obviously businessmen entertaining some Japanese guests and as the evening progressed and the wine and beer flowed the noise level rose considerably making conversation difficult. Not the fault of the restaurant and just one of those things I guess. Nonetheless we enjoyed our evening there and would certainly go again next time we are in Auckland.

“Kermadec has good food/service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Excellent food - but pricey mains - and nice window views of the Viaduct if you get there early. If you don't want a view, choose one of their rooms - you'll sit Japan style over water that has lots of swimming fish - really!

“WOW can I live there???”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

Fabulous fabulous fabulous ! Great service from a delightful serving specialist and helpers. The food is outrageously good. It's simply gorgeous with its variety of twists and surprises. Tastes are Devine and the servings generous. Certainly not a case of three peas and a baby carrot. The inventiveness of the menu makes it an adventure. Value for money is outstanding. I'm moving in and never leaving!
