The good news started with the booking: a fish restaurant which, when confronted by a diner with a shellfish intolerance, did not baulk but undertook to scour the preparation station to ensure no cross contamination: impressive.

The setting in the Auckland Hilton is lovely with sea views. Though there a few non-seafood dishes, I stuck with the seafood for starter and main. I found it it well cooked, interesting design and good quality and fresh. A coconut and fish starter was simply superb as was the cheese board. The main of fish was tasty and adequate... More

This place was empty when we dined at 5PM, but very pretty and clean. The menu is full of seafood and great wine! Don't worry they have non-seafood items as well. We ordered the soft-shell crab appetizer ($26) cioppino/seafood stew ($41.50), the Akaroa salmon tail entree (42.50) and wines by the glass. The waiter asked if we would like bread... More

We had a corporate event for 30 people and the folks at Fish were a dream to work with. As with all events, there are last minute unforseen issues, the team led by Trevor stepped in with professionalism, grace, efficiency and made problems vanish. Superb service, awesome location, great food. Thanks a mil!

This restaurant in the Hilton Auckland has a beautiful location at the end of Princes Wharf. The fish we had was excellent but the restaurant is a bit overpriced and the service was stiff and somewhat pretentious.

As the name implies, they primarily do fish. The fish was prepared very well and the portions generous. The wine knowledge of the staff was a little lacking but after some explanation and discussion we were finally able to figure out a good bottle. The restaurant feels a little hanger like, particularly in the room with the best view but... More

If you want good enough food and don't care too much about the price this is the restaurant for you. If you want to eat some extraordinary something that you will remember with joy go somewhere else. There is both cheaper and better food places in Auckland. The only thing I really enjoyed was the wine.
