“beaut views of auckland and good food”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

Orbit restaurant is a great place to have a meal and view the city from the highest point. One full rotation takes one hour, so a leisurely two hour meal is perfect. Try for later evening so you get daylight and dusk/night. Very pretty overlooking the harbour when there is a cruise ship berthed at Princes Wharf. Food is good and service excellent.

“Wish someone had warned me not to go”
Reviewed January 12, 2013 via mobile

Honestly with all the good quality restaurants around Auckland this one is worth the miss. The only good part is the view and that can be seen from just going up the tower.
The food is over priced for what you get, I understand paying a lot for excellent quality and small portions but here is not the case, and it feels as though they tried and failed at being to fancy for the menu not good if your dining with anyone slightly fussy. Now the service is absolutely shocking. A disgrace. The waiters need to get over themselves and the reservation team is most unhelpful. After writing a small review on their Facebook page it was deleted which is very dishonest to any future guests (never trust a place without any negative comments) and after talking to the food and beverage manager realised dollars not people are the only concern here. Don't waste your time

Fabilous view, the food is very good, we particularly enjoyed the desserts. The price is not too bad.

“Spectacular day and night.”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

Really good standard of cuisine, enhanced by the views from the revolving restaurant. It tkaes just over an hour to do the complete circuit. If you want to see Auckland by day, do lunch. But there is a fairyland of lights if you have dinner in the evening, when the sunset is a feature.

“One of the best revolving restaurants in the world!”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

One of the best revolving restaurants in the world! Excellent food, wines and service while you see the city slowly 'move' around you. Best time on a clear day at dusk. Please book in advance.
