“Book early to sit near the huge window views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2013

Ontop of the Mecure is the Vue Restaurant and Bar. It is tastefully decorated and has several booth seating which I always think are so comfortable. I think the menu has something for everyone even though its not a huge menu - it has been well thought out. We started out with scallops - a tasty smallish but well presented entree, and the freshly made bread and dips. Main was a Aubergine creation and my husband had the lamb which he declared tender and tasty. Service is attentive - the only thing that lacked was a little atmosphere as it as a little empty and some tasteful music would have helped. The view is great and this is even a great spot for a pre dinner drink.

“The view is the best!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013

A little pricy for the lack of flavors in the food - all sides are ala carte. Was a fun evening though with friendly service and amazing views of the harbor!

“New Years Degustation Menu”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed the NY Degustation menu. Very pleased to receive much better service than our previous visit, and the menu and wines were very enjoyable. Great spot to relax after the meal and enjoy the fireworks display from Sky City

“VERY SPECIAL VIEWS SERVICE & FOOD”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

It would be hard to beat this for a magical experience in Auckland Central. I have madet this my special place and regularly invite friends to meet me in the stunning bar with the 'in your face' city view before having dinner on the other side (same floor) with the gorgeous Auckland Harbour view.

I had Xmas lunch there one year and couldnt have had a lovelier time. They had so many choices in the extensive buffet..The restaurant also has an excellent menu but I while trying to lose weight on my recent visit, I asked for a Caesar Salad, which they made especially for me at a reasonable price and it was really delicious. The service was impeccable too.

Parking stations are a five minute walk away.

“Excellent food, pity about the service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2012

We booked for a Sunday lunch with friends. Restaurant was not very busy at all, and unfortunately the staff that were working were more interested in sitting around talking than offering us service. My husband had to go and approach them so our table could order another round of drinks. The food was very good, but unfortunately the lack of customer service from the staff was a real let down.
