“Right up there!”
Reviewed July 14, 2014

We turned up early with no booking and they managed to squeeze us in. The food was amazing! Really well thought our and tasty. Good portion sizes. But for me the winner of the night was the service. As soon as we walked in the door the lady came from out behind the bar to talk to us. While to waited to be seated the chef came out from the kitchen to check we were being looked after. Our waitress Nicole was amazing! She knew EVERYTHING about that menu (I had lots of questions). She was very attentive and even when she was rushed off her feet she still managed to keep checking on us.

We had to move to the bar to have our dessert as our table was needed at 8pm. At first I was thinking oh god this is going to ruin the evening. But Nicole had found us the perfect seat and set us up near the chef's table so we could watch the action there. She still kept coming back to check on us. I never tip in NZ unless the service is amazing. It was, and I did!

Hi belle_26,

We really appreciate the effort our customers make to share their experiences of Euro in this forum. Thank you!
It's especially encouraging when so many of the team go the extra mile for our guests. As Simon says, it the "5% Magic!"

warmest regards,

Vincent Rey

“Disappointing food but great service”
Reviewed July 6, 2014

I dined here with two others at the weekend. The service was extremely professional without being unfriendly. However, two of our meals were quite disappointing; the risotto was rather bland and the rotisserie chicken overly dry. Priced in the mid to hi $30s we did not think the mains were good value.

“Great food and service”
Reviewed July 4, 2014

My locals hosts took me out to Euro and is was a great surprise. Excellent food with lots of choice on the healthy side brought by a good service team. A bit cold on a fresh winter day, but the food made up for it.

Hi asw323,

Thanks for posting! Great to read that you had a good time and enjoyed the food and service. We do try to keep it really toasty inside over winter - so I'm sorry to read you were not quite warm enough.

A table by the fire next time you are in town!

Warm regards,

Vincent Rey

“Euro goes the extra mile”
Reviewed July 2, 2014

Euro's consistency, warm welcome and just-far-enough-out-of-the-way setting have always appealed, but the quality of the service is what truly sets it apart. The staff and the chefs seem to genuinely welcome new ways to help you have a good time - even down to filleting our large (but entirely legal!) catch of snapper! Keep up the good work

Dear RockyP496,

Thank you! We'll be 15 years young this August, and some of the guys you mention have been here that long (although they'll tell you they don't look it). It is really their efforts that continue to set us apart from all the competition - and not forgetting Simon's brilliant menus of course!

Regards,

Vincent Rey

“Sunday Lunch with Jazz”
Reviewed June 28, 2014

We went with friends to Euro to enjoy the Nairobi Trio jazz and a $20 Crayfish deal, what a great lunch we all had different choices and everyone commented on how good each one was. The waiter was very good and provided not only great service but very funny banter throughout the meal.
The meal was over 2.5 hours so dont go if you are in a hurry, we enjoyed great food and conversation with the best of lunch live jazz.
The meal was of the best quality and reasonably priced, we would be back in a flash. The $20 crayfish is not a main its a great starter.
This place has a high standard and you have an expectation walking into the premise, we have been before and have not been disappointed, our friends were here for the first time and loved everything about it.

We will be back soon.
