“Bland Food, great view”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

Called in for a quick dinner together with a customer, no booking, place was deserted when we arrived but quickly several other people had the same idea!

Was given a great table overlooking the heli pad, great view.

The food was just about 'ok' the seafood pasta was missing something, very bland indeed, overall it was 'ok' nothing more.

“Very Average Restaurant”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

Was expecting the standard of food and service I have had there on several early visits (maybe 4 years ago). Was very disappointed with very average food and service. Had emailed ahead advising them I was bringing two guests from the Hospitality/Cruise Industry - had been assured we would be well looked after. No one was there to greet us on arrival. Plastic laminated degustation menus left on the table throughout whole meal. Had to serve our own wine. Ice bucket never arrived - was a huge disappointment.

“Truly awful service”
Reviewed September 12, 2012

Went here for our daughters birthday this week
Food was quite nice but the experience was totally ruined by the most appalling service ever.
Rude and totally inept. We have 3 daughters who were v well behaved but seemed unwelcome.
The maitre d (didn't get her name, blonde curly hair) was impolite and frankly rude from start to finish. Took us to our seats without a word and this seemed to be her modus operandi all night.
The waiter was non existent and we had to flag one over for drinks and bread having been seated for 30mins
Utter rubbish. Would recommend giving this place a very wide berth. Many many much better restaurants in Auckland
