“Indescribable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013 via mobile

We booked here as a special meal while visiting Auckland on our honeymoon. We are no strangers to Michelin star fine dining in Europe and Merediths did not disappoint and has now become one of our favourites and we hope to visit again in the future.

We attended on Friday for the 9 course taster menu and every course was perfection. The menu was well thought out and was not pretentious at all, including local delicacies. Portion sizes were generous given the many courses!

We were lucky enough to be served by the lovely Dominique. The service was outstanding and Dominique's personal touches and recommendations for our onward journey were much appreciated.

We wish we could go every week!

“great flavours... a little OTT”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

cant fault the work gone into Merediths degustation menu. The food was devine. Wine match was excellent. I just wonder if the art and technology part of it has taken priority over the eating part?

Michael's presentation and imagination in the food he presents is absolutely fantastic.
Educated staff who can advise on a matching wine if you want. Very Good service.

“Great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

Had our first experience there 16th Jan and had the 8 course degustation. Fantastic and innovative. Very impressed with each course starting with a Beetroot Meringue with Duck Breast Pate which looked like a Macaron but savoury and excellent! We enjoyed each course very much.
Staff were very friendly, attentive and accessible when required.
Will gladly return again and recommend it highly.
