we came across this place whilst looking on the web for somewhere to have a special dinner .
the view from the rather plush dining room was one of the most beautiful I have come across.
However it was the menu and the food that made the evening that much more special.
I had the French onion soup and my wife had the duck cigar. Not a morsel was left. It was one of those menus that you get every now and then that makes you want a piece of everything.
The main course was just as exciting. The duck was perfect, just slightly pink, and the truffle fries were to die for. my wife had the salmon, which was moist and not overcooked( how do they do that?). I have read the previous review and the guy must be from a competing restaurant and rightfully he is frightened. This place will be the'go to place' for anyone who wants a fantastic view and a dining experience to die for. Good luck Waitakere
