“YUM!!YUM!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2014

We have been to Sidart about 3 or 4 times and every time has been absolutely divine!
The components of each plate is well thought of, adventurous and complement well with each other.
I know it seems rather on the expensive side but in fact it is very reasonably priced if you take into account the quality of ingredients used and the time and skill taken to transform each component into perfection.

“A most memorable meal ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014 via mobile

We popped in one dinner without a booking. Dived into one of the degustation options, with matched wines, & had a truly memorable meal. The wines were outstanding too!

“What was it?”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2014

We went for our anniversary dinner to Sidart. Before making a booking I had not checked the cuisine type there but only relied on the rating here on Tripadvisor. Unfortunately, that was a mistake.. It was the first time we tried 'fusion' or how you call it. And we didn't like it. The food itself was not bad but probably not to our taste and the portions were tiny tiny but very expensive. It left the feeling that we didn't get what we paid for. And this is not something you want for such a special occasion dinner. The restaurant room is very small as well with only 1 decent window. And we were seated not opposite to each other but at angle. The worst part was that we waited for our food almost 1 hour to arrive and started being angry.. The waiting staff was very sweet though.
However, overall, we will never go there again and would not recommend to a friend. The French Cafe last at out year's anniversary was way way better and really the number 1 for us so far.

“Best meal ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2014

I can easily say that I've had the best meal of my life here. Everything that they served was cooked to perfection. The dessert was incredibly delicious- light, yet so much flavour. The hostess was nothing but friendly and helpful. I really enjoyed my night and I'll be coming back soon for more.

“Awesome ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2014 via mobile

As we have recently moved to Auckland, and heard a lot about this place thought we should check it out. We opted for the 5 course degustation wine matched menu. And we're blown away with the flavour profile of each dish and Amanda our waitress and sommelier was fabulous. Defiantly recommend this place for a special occasion. We will return
