What a lovely night we had, the restaurant was booked with special functions but the owner managed to find space for the four of us. Everyone was really impressed with the food, my husband had eye fillet steak, he asked for a steak knife & the waitress said that he wouldn't need one as the steak should be so tender. My husband was very impressed when he cut into it he said that the waitress was correct & that it was cooked perfectly & so tender that he could almost have cut it with just his fork. We will certainly be back again & again.

The food was delicious, at our table we had calzone, pizza and meat skewers and everybody enjoyed their meal tremendously. I would recommend the meat skewers, the humus is superb.

We ventured to this restaurant on a winter Friday night. First impressions was this was a popular restaurant, it had a lively atmosphere and was almost full. We were shown to our seats, but unfortunately they only have a ranch slider for their front entrance. Every time someone entered the restaurant we were hit by an icy blast! We asked to be seated at another table and the waitress was very helpful.

We ordered the peppercorn steak and the confit of duck. Steak was delicious as was the duck, although both were served with identical steamed or boiled veges - in this case carrot, broccoli and beans. We thought they could have been more inventive given the price of each meal. Overall a nice meal, though perhaps they could have made it a bit more cozy given the winters night. Would recommend for groups rather than couples!

We drive from Mt Eden to dine here as its just the best Mediterranean food in Auckland.

Service is great, you are always made to feel so very welcome when you come here - and we have returned to dine here 3 times in r the past couple of months.

Love the pictures of the Med projected up on the wall. These, the great staff and the music help create a great atmosphere in the restaurant.

Best to book if going on a Friday or Saturday as it gets quite busy.

The food is the best hands down, particularly the humus, bread and skewers of meat. Although, I have never been disappointed with any of the meals eaten here.

We have a local Mediterranean restaurant in Mt Eden that could learn something or two from The Mediterranean, though expect it would be very difficult to do.
