Cafe Ariki is a beautiful building and has a great atmosphere. The food was excellent. However the staff were useless. Food took far to long to come out. Waitress was not competent what so ever, complained about being hung over from the night before and lacked any real friendlyness or customer service skills. The two guy waiters who used to be there were excellent and efficient, get them back!
Also use glasses instead of plastic cups, its not a good look.
Cafe Ariki needs an efficient Maitre D
