My wife and I dropped in for brunch while we waited for the next Ferry To Waiheke Island on sunday morning. The service was good despite there being only one hardworking waitress. The food was also very very good. We both opted for the french toast complete with delicious, crunchy bacon, bananas, maple syrup and french toast lovingly cooked. The cost was about $32 for the both of us including a Soy latte my wife particularly enjoyed. The waitress was friendly and polite and promptly dealt with our order and the payment of our bill when we were ready to leave. A great way to kill half an hour or so and really enjoy the scenery and the food. Highly recommended.

Mecca has been through changes over the years but this incarnation is the worst. Previously the rear area which has some very comfortable seats has been our favourite place to eat - not this time as it was closed. The good range of beers has gone as well. We sat at a table inside and the whole area seemed drear and needed updating. The menu has a Moroccan slant and the warm chicken salad was just passable. Fish & chips less so. The waitress sis not help by a rather offhand attitude.

We were very disappointed and wished we had looked elsewhere. We will next time.

We had a lovely brunch here this morning. The service was seamless, the atmosphere was lovely and the food was delicious. We sat out the front which has beautiful views across the road to the park and harbour. Would highly recommend the eggs Benedict with bacon. We would definitely go back again.

We recently held our wedding reception at Mecca Restaurant in Devonport. Sam and Katrina and the rest of the staff went out of their way to make it a fantastic event for us. The food was incredible (the guests are still raving about it) and the service was brilliant. We've been to Mecca for lots of meals over the years we've been living in the area and haven't had a bad experience. I'd recommend the restaurant to all.

Went to Devonport for lunch. After a walk up and around Victoria Rd opted to call at Mecca. Ordered my usual NZ favourite, seafood chowder and it was excellent, I would high recommend this to anyone. Had coffee to follow which was also great, lovely and smooth, no bitter burnt beans here. Right across from the jetty and park, a lovely relaxing lunch.
