“An Excellent Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2014

Our son selected Two Souls Bistro to celebrate his graduation and it turned out to be a great choice. We had an excellent meal at a very good price. The service was spot on.

The menu was a pleasant mix with several seafood dishes. The night we were there the fish of the day was tarakihi. I especially enjoyed the blackened cajun, but the straight fish of the day was also excellent. We all had a starter and main and no one tried the desserts.

We will definitely be back here.

“Best lamb I've ever had”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2014 via mobile

Terrific. I am hard to please (being a foodie from London) but I couldn't fault here! The lamb ($33) was beautiful, service attentive and dessert (chocolate torte) delicious too. Book ahead.

“Amazing service, highly recommend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2014

This restaurant is truly a hidden gem. We were 4 adults and 4 children for dinner on Easter Sunday. We had booked but you don't need to. The staff made us feel extremely welcome. They treated the children (aged 6,6, 7 and 9) like adults. They took their food order and then asked "what would you like to drink with your food" then bought colouring in pages. Once they were done, and after they had finished their meal, they then bought them word search puzzles. The evening was finished by giving the children glow sticks (as we were walking back to the hotel) and a take away box with a chocolate each. They just couldn't do enough for them. From the adults perspective, the wine list was well thought through, the meals were beautifully presented and the food was very tasty. It was a wonderful evening and I would highly recommend this restaurant.

“Thank you previous reveiwers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2014

It was on the basis of previous reviews that we sought out this establishment. So glad we did. We couldn't fault it.

Excellent food from a menu of eclectic choices. The décor is casual but the food is not - flavoursome and stylishly presented.

The service was great with very friendly and attentive waitresses.

“Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2014

We had some concern about this restaurant but went on the basis of reviews read in Trip Advisor. It was a tad out of the way from a downtown hotel but well worth the trip. It appeared to be run by Chinese. However the food was quite eclectic. When we sat down there was an Asian family at the table next to us and we got the feeling that this was a local restaurant with good food attended by the locals as the place was reasonably full at 7.00 p.m. The food was good, all conceded that point. The menu was quite extensive so good choices in the meat and fish category.
Service was very good and a good selection of wine. Prices were reasonable and that was an added bonus. I love Trip Advisor exactly for this type of recommendation for without Trip Advisor we would never have considered this wonderful little restaurant.
