We had good service when we ate at Seafood Central. However they are one of the many restaurants who insist on serving food on mini wooden boards. My fish burger feel of the board onto the table which was a bad start. My partners surf n turf had a slice of beetroot in it. Cut into the burger an beetroot... More

Absolute one of the best seafood places I ever had. However, it is almost like the people running the restaurant don't realize the value of it! Plastic chair, okaish service etc. If you love seafood none of this matters, e.g. tuna is from heaven!!

We won't be back because: - poor value for money. The adult fish and chips was marginally larger than the kids one. The fish for the... More

During our recent trip to Auckland, we both had a craving for seafood. A quick google lead us to the Auckland Fish Market on the hunt for a seafood restaurant. After a wander of the shops, we found Seafood Central tucked away out the back. We were welcomed in and settled at a table with a yummy wine to help... More

We stopped in shortly before they were due to close for the day and they could not have been more welcoming and accommodating! I was hoping for fresh flounder and although it was not their 'catch of the day' they walked over to the market and picked a beautiful whole flounder and prepared it to my preference and charged us...

We had seafood Platter. Kyle served us with fantastic service. Great wine. Good level of music. The seafood platter was amazing. It needed some bread with it instead of chips and a separate salad but other than that, it was awesum.

First of all, I was surprised at the other reviews I read about this restaurant. The thing is I didn't read the reviews before coming here so I didn't have any expectations about the restaurant. I've dine here a couple of times last year but not this is my first this year. So, some things have changed: management, menu, chefs.... More
