Nice vibe, Music and lots of yummy tasters. All products are of a high quality. Often go twice a month every time something new. Cost average to high.

La Cigale is one of those hidden treasure in the Auckland eating out scene. It’s not far from central Auckland in a little cul de sac at the bottom of Parnell – you must check a map before heading out as it’s easy to get lost. But there is heaps of parking almost at the door. Service is polite and... More

Came here with a group for a function. Wasnt quite sure if the place was a shop with a restaurant attached or vice versa. The place was very busy the night we were there and I had doubts about their ability to manage all the people. However I was pleased to see that the organization was excellent and we were... More

It is a lovely market with loads of different food options and ranges. Delicious cheese selection a bit expensive but they all french. Different type of wines and prices ranges. They have loads of pastries and also take away coffees. And of course organic vegetables from farmers.

Came here on business with a large group in which we had the restaurant to ourselves. The service and food were excellent and the surrounding decor in keeping with the French style. Certainly worth a visit.

And a must try Caesar salad. One of the best I've had in a long time. Egg perfectly poached. Anchovies salty but not over powering to allow the taste of parmesan to come through on well dressed salad leaves with a creamy but not over powering anchovy dressing A must if on the menu. Great wine shop beside it as... More

Came here for a work farewell dinner. Very nice food, had a band playing which added to the atmosphere. Service was ok and could have definitely been better. Would consider trying it again.

Had previously only visited on market day so was keen to try their Thursday evening Bistro with a group of friends last night. Between us we pretty well covered everything on the day's menu for entrees and mains and all were delighted with their choice. I had a generous serving of a dozen escargots in garlic butter for starter with... More

We had a excellent lunch at La Cigale. We tried the ceasar salad, tuna quiche and chicken haloumi sandwich, all very good!! As desert we had a piece of pie, ordered one piece, but got two pieces 'to avoid an argument' said the waiter :) Great service!

Food was good. Although the sitting places is very limited but worth the wait. You will have a varieties of food choices at La Cigale and you will love it. Please walk around at the market area if you come by this restaurant. It is definitely a different experience to be here.
