Great location with inside and inside opening doors and outside dining to suit all needs and all weather Service was efficient and meals presented well and good value for money - food runners had difficulty getting the right meal to the person who ordered. Bar facility is nice for after dinner or while waiting for the group to arrive

I often visit here for a takeout of chicken risotto which is delicious! Great serving size and always piping hot. I love it. Fast and friendly service. Recently we ordered a pizza from here and it was excellent too (they also do a small version perfect for when you're on your own.) Love it!

For a Christmas function, it is always hard catering for a larger group but all in all, I think it was a great success. Set menu, good choices with selections for our vegetarian and vegan friends in the group. Gave the group plenty amount of notice to get orders in quick due to other large groups coming in. The only... More

The location is great and the host was nice and welcoming but I Will never go back. Why: 1. Oysters weren't fresh. 2. Service was amateur. Worst than that actually. By 3 of the staff. 3. Pizza dough wasn't baked. 4. Calamari was too spicy. Great Chardonnay. $137 for that 😩

Just had another delicious lunch at GPK Takapuna.Today's fish of the day was snapper, beautifully cooked and presented with lovely prawns and refreshing salad to accompany. Perfect. The pizzas and pizza bread are always of a consistently high standard and my husband's special requests were as usual handled and executed flawlessly. The service is always friendly and efficient here and... More

It's unfortunate. The venue is nice and it's changed a bit , but not for the good. It's much more casual. I had ordered linguine with an extra of prawns. First off the linguine was actually flat Chinese noodles and was far too spicy, very hot. What are they thinking. But I did get a great amount of prawns. And... More

Hi thank you for your feedback. We take all comments seriously and will pass these on to the head Chef. The pasta is definitely linguine and chilli is mentioned on the menu, also the Bombay pizza has a tandoori spice and mango chutney which can be a bit spicy. We are glad to make our dishes less spicy to suit... More

We were invited for dinner and looked forward to a good evening. The waitress seemed to rush us through our menus from the start. When we told her we were not ready to order yet, she turned her eyes up and then marched off, returning a minute later asking the same question. When the food arrived, instead of placing the...

Ok, we have dined here before but this visit showed a move towards the average. Service ok (did not listen as we wanted a few starters as mains and to arrive at the same time as mains, this did not happen). Food was just ok, the kids seemed to enjoy their pizzas that said if you want pizza there are... More

Look, GPK may do great pizzas but to be honest, their menu is uninspired and tired and needs a rev up. The food hits the spot- okay - but nothing to write home about. Okay is okay, but I left spending $92 on an entree and main, a beer and glass of house wine. For that, I'm expecting something a... More
