“Beautiful food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2014

Took a friend from overseas here on Saturday night.
Food was lovely - in particular the creme brulee!
My friend also enjoyed his steak very much,
They do some yummy cocktails here and the service was excellent.
A lovely spot in Mission Bay especially if you are looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of the pavement restaurants in the area.

Me and my family had lunch at the attic at mission bay. It was a beautiful day and the excellent seafood and great location of the restaurant made our afternoon a memorable one.

“Lovely restaurant, nice food, good staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2014

As a visitor from the South Island I appreciated the fresh snapper. I chose the cauliflower cheese croquettes to accompany my main but from greed, not necessity, as my dish was fully plated with appropriate garnish.

Wine list was well built, staff were friendly and helpful. Water was not plentiful till we requested it, then top ups happened regularly.

It's a real shame that the outdoor tables with sea views were occupied by smokers. If there was a way to seat smokers elsewhere then big-spending diners may choose to stay longer if they could sit outdoors and enjoy the views.

It's a child-friendly venue - to me this is a negative but others may like to know their spawn are allowed to run riot.

“Great food and lovely location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2014

We took our daughter to dinner here and had a lovely table (see photo) looking out over Mission Bay. The food was excellent and incredibly reasonable with the special offer they were running on the Tuesday we visited. The staff were very friendly and approachable too. All in all a really good place in what can be quite a pricy area of Auckland. Only slight drawback is that you share the access to the outside deck with peoplen there for just a drink so the restaurant area near the deck can feel like more of a bar than a restaurant with people going back and forth with drinks - but didn't bother us.

“Delicious Dessert”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2014

Popped into The Attic after a movie in Mission Bay for Dessert and drinks and we were warmly welcomed and no problem just to have dessert (which was presented superbly by the way). This is the second time we've been here recently and both times we've found the service exceptional and the food excellent. The ambience is great too.
