An enjoyable meal, plenty of choice on the menu to cater for all tastes. An adequate level of service, although maybe to quick to remove plates while the other party at the table was still eating. Great atmosphere quite busy so would suggest booking particularly on Friday or weekends. Overall an enjoyable experience and the meals were large, as its a bar also a good range of drinks.

Foundation has a great vibe with a variety of seating arrangements to choose from including a garden bar.
Personal touches include the staff member who offered to charge my phone for me!
For seafood lovers the Tuatua soup is to die for, as is the Tron Pizza.
Will be back!

If this was the first time I had been to Foundation i wouldn't be back. Food was very ordinary and whilst our food waitress was lovely there was another waitress who was nothing short of rude. There was a mix up with drinks and I ended up with 2 glasses of wine....nothing to complain about you might say, however, the rude waitress suddenly whipped the second glass away and then we saw her pouring it back into the bottle.... Which apparently is ok....Not in my books how do they know I hadn't taken a sip? Time to lift your game Foundation I think.

This is a great place to eat & drink. The staff are fabulous and the décor is great. The food is really good and the Margarita's are fabulous. Love it when my friends from Auckland come down and I drive over there and we meet and enjoy ourselves. Would recommend it to anybody.
