“Prefect place for a special occasion”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2014 via mobile

My husband took me to fish last night for a birthday dinner.

I loved the place. Beautiful view right on the water front, the staff were welcoming. Our waiter was awesome, he was friendly with a great sense of humor and informative without taking up too
Much time.

We had a breads dish to start which was yummy.

I had the catch of the day which was lovely and my husband had a whole snapper which he polished off.

We decided we were far to full for dessert , however the staff bought me out a cute plate with happy birthday written in chocolate and yummy little dark chocolate balls rolled in nuts.

We paid $133 for one entree two mains and two drinks.

Amazing food, great service, great view.

“Great food great view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2014 via mobile

What a brilliant meal we had in this restaurant. The food was amazing and the service to match. A whole grilled cod was the special and I am delighted that I chose it. An enchanting dessert with liquid nitrogen freezing up cream and fruit. That was a display worth watching and taste did not disappoint.
The wait staff were knowledgable and could give suggestions on the best wines which is helpful for tourists.
The view needs to be seen

“Fantastic - wonderful view and food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2014

Some of the best seafood (and service) we've encountered anywhere. Very personable staff and inventive seafood cuisine. Very extensive wine offerings too.... massive wine list with nice offerings at range of prices. We tried it for breakfast buffet (amazing) as well as for Lunch and Dinner and were not disappointed. Wait staff very attentive and able to answer detailed questions re. offerings. This is a place to sit outside on the broad terrace, take some time and have a great meal with friends! HIGHEST recommendation.

“Everything we expected”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2014 via mobile

What a great choice and a nice way to end our trip back to NZ. Dinned with our friends from Perth who are very much foodies and wine lovers. Great selection of wine and started with some champagne. Nice to see a waitress pour correctly and in order. Had a wonder entree and most of us had the special bluenose and also the whole fish special which was blue cod. Cooked to perfection. Had rice pudding and an interesting desert where the chef came out and cooked it in front of us. What a display... Worth an order just to watch how it is done. A great desert wine to finish. Great views!

Hi Elizabeth,

Thanks for taking the time to comment on your recent dinner with us. It was great to read that you enjoyed Shane's summer menu, and that the Nitro dessert was a big hit!

Looking forward to having you dine with us next time you are in Auckland.

Warm regards,

Vincent Rey - Restaurant Manager

“Excellent Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2014 via mobile

Went to Fish last night for the first time. We were warmly welcomed on arrival, and the high level of service continued through the night. Wait staff were attentive without being intrusive, and very knowledgeable about the menu.
The food was superb, with Gault's influence clearly evident. Great ingredients cooked to perfection - sophisticated without being pretentious.
The restaurant itself if well laid out, and makes the most of the stunning harbour views.
We will definitely be back.
