Food, wine and service are great.
High tea is great too with nice pastries and a good selection of teas.
The mix of decoration, music and light make the atmosphere so special and the place so unic in Auckland.

From the moment you get in the door you are looked after in style .Everything is taken care of. then you have to decide what Magic Dish to try from the Manuka Smoked Beetrot to the hand made Deserts to die for.Will be back real soon......................

We visited Nostalgia for high tea. What can i say everything was hand made.Yes you can taste the difference. WOW what an experience, from the menu of teas, to the home made bread. Even the wine was well chosen and sensibly priced well done.

A bit late, but happy to take a moment to recommend this one. Took wife there on Valentine's night. Booked well in advance. MD phoned me few days later to say limited menu only as fully booked that night. Slightly annoyed as not told when booking.
Very impressed by look and feel of the place on arrival. Amazing retro decor, wait staff dressed in waistcoats and/or stripey suits. Small 'special' menu, but we had no problem choosing. Very nicely presented food and the taste was as good as the look. Very good service, attentive without intrusion, despite being fully booked. Thoroughly enjoyed the night. Can't remember any down sides. Toilets worth a visit even if you don't need to!
Multiple brownie points with the wife!

We ate here en famille on our visit to Auckland with extended family. Being new year it was a set menu but it catered for all tastes and the food was excellent. The biggest plus tho was the surroundings! England in the 20's was the best way to describe it with wonderful decor, old displays of clothing and fabulous hats to wear if you so wished! As for the toilets!! Polished brass everywhere! Sounds wierd but it really is great! Wine and drinks were a little expensive but they very kindly reduced prices on particular wines as there were so many of us! Looking at other reviews I wish I had gone for high tea too!
