Merediths is our favourite restaurant in Auckland and we keep going back year after year. The Saturday 9 course degustation again a 4 hour culinary journey through flavours and taste sensations. The staff also excellent, friendly and knowledgeable. Of the current menu the lamb and duck my favourites.

A somewhat dramatic title yet NZ which is so far away for many has on offer some of the most creative amazing modern day food and beverage offerings.At the cutting edge of this wonderful restaurant scene is Merediths of Auckland .The chef /owner Michael Meredith creates a style of food that takes your culinary senses on a journey few have or get the opportunity to experience.It is Michael's journey via his fixed menus of 6 or 9 courses with a optional wine marriage. He and his staff are wonderful hosts for your Meredith experience.
This journey is not for the traditional palate but for those who wish to experience food combinations prepared and presented in innovative challenging ways .
I cannot recommend strongly enough if you are travelling to NZ;have this restaurant on your list of places to experience .This my second visit which won't be my last!
Thank you Michael for creating what we experienced with you .

Everything (positive) you have heard about Merediths is true. The degustation is spectacular and the wine matches interesting, sometimes obscure and all very well matched. Allow plenty of time to savour each dish and enjoy the experience. The menu was varied, inventive and there were some spectacular flavours in this truly inventive cuisine. Will be saving up to go back for more of the same. Best of all it is walking distance to my place, thanks Michael!

A group of 15 of us went here to experience their 9-course degustation menu. We were in a very basic, but private room. The service was excellent, our waitress was lovely - funny and engaging. Food quality was beautiful but we thought the presentation was quite basic compared to other deguations we have tried (Euro and O'Connoll Street Bistro are better). Still, we did enjoy trying the unique ingredients on the menu. Some of our group felt there were too many unique flavours which made the dishes too polarising. I enjoyed it but I would pick the other 2 restuarants before this one if I was too return.

What a fabulous culinary journey through gastronomic New Zealand.
We arrived and were warmly welcomed into this very comfortable stylish setting. The 9 course degustation started with an amuse bushe which gave the first inkling of the delights we were in for. Each course was truly Kiwi inspired... from the Waikenae crab, King Salmon, paua and smoked eel to the lamb which I swear was a miniture hangi on the plate..... well done Mr Meredith. You are true to your reputation as a New Zealand gastronome.
Superb food, wine, service and a truly New Zealand inspired adventure in taste
