Depot really knows how to marry wonderful service and great food. Our servers suggested reducing portion sizes so we could try multiple items. So glad we did! The fish items were fantastic as we the Brussels Sprouts. Our servers missed our oysters, but then comped them for us. Totally unnecessary but so nice of them! Great place right next to... More

Always visit Depot for a Bacon & Egg "Doona" ( aka roll) & coffee...it really is the perfect start to the day. Lashings of bacon & perfect sticky egg. Highly recommended

Went there late Saturday evening, worth the 2 hour wait (don't worry, they call your number when ready so you can go stroll around the area).

Everything about this place is spot on. The oysters convert non oyster eaters, the fish sliders are melt in your mouth and no dish every disappoints. A must visit for anyone visiting Auckland. Just get there early to reserve yourself a spot as there is always a wait for tables.

Loved this place, loved the ambience, the creative way with food - using Kiwi Classics to create interesting dishes - well done. And of course the oysters, with an array of varieties this was a highlight. Attentive staff. Fantastic night out with a great local feel. Bookings essential!

Nice ambience, feel so relaxed. Very delicious food ! Highly recommend for their fresh raw oysters and raw clams and they buttery bone marrow ! Very friendly team with quality service, you don't even need to ask for water refills / plate changing. Everything's just awesome! Will definitely come again!
