We had a dinner there with three other couples and overall it was very nice. The meals had interesting flavours. However the service was slow. The wait staff were very friendly.

I was staying at the Copthorne hotel which is a couple of doors down from Vista and fancied a simple breakfast. Vista was perfect. The ambience is great, the coffee is very good, and the scrambled eggs on toas was perfect.

We had several recommendations for good restaurants to try near our Wellington hotel (Copthorne on Oriental Bay) but they were quite formal dining and very expensive. We stumbled upon the Vista cafe where locals seemed to be enjoying themselves so we booked a table for later in the evening. Our meal was absolutely delicious with fresh ingredients and new Asian tastes plus generous portions. There was also a good selection of NZ wines to choose from and excellent service. Surprisingly the restaurant was not very busy but don't let an empty table or two put you off, there was a great convivial atmosphere. This restaurant is well worth a try, especially if you are looking for good food in a casual, friendly environment.

The first time we ate here we were astonished by the high quality of the food. Also the wines were very good. Since the atmosphere is relaxed, we concluded that this restaurant was a gem. The next day we planned to eat somewhere else, but finally we ended in the same restaurant. Maybe our expectations were too high, but the second time it was less good. The food was ok but not perfect. Still we enjoyed our meal.
