We ate outside on a balmy night. Everything was perfect especially the salmon with lemon risotto with of course a crisp NZ sav blanc.

We used to go to Avanti all the time, differences on the delivering the same menu happens, depending on the chef of the season, and that was never a problem, as it was delicious anyway. Being locals we understand the rotation of staff, and the restaurant was always a good value for money.
A couple of days ago it was disappointing though, not sure if the management has changed, but the consistency has dropped in a way we can't ignore it. The staff were still super polite, however no "specials" or interaction when the menu was given. And the pasta portions served were a joke, really half of what used to be. Not sure if keen on trying the luck going to Avanti again.

Service good but disgraceful food quality. A monkey could prepare something more appetising. Just awful food

This is a restaurant in the sense of the word - well you order food and drink, and they presumably pay people to take your order and deliver said food and drink, but I think I've had better food and service at boarding school in the late 1970's (and boarding school was probably cheaper)

How I wish I had had time to read the reviews before we ate, but had travelled for ten hours and we were starving. We ordered lasagne for two, and did not have to wait long, but just one look was enough. Being very hungry I tried hard to enjoy it, but I gave up and called the waitress and politely told her we could not eat it, she then said we could choose something else on the menu. We decided on a dessert which was just passable. When we came to pay the bill we had been charged for the mains and not the dessert, definitely no the best way to treat a dissatisfied customer. Needlehss to say, avoid at all costs. And just in passing, avoid the toilets as well!!!.
