Victor is the most brilliant and hilarious waiter in Auckland bar none! His dry humour is infectious and sets the atmosphere for the restaurant. I thought I had met him before and sure enough, he was doing high teas at Domain kiosk. Went there on a date Sunday evening and place filled up - maybe people using vouchers! Pork belly+ fish of day - Excellent! Entree calamari + beetroot. Not many places that you want to leave a generous tip for the wait staff let alone the quality of food!

We brought a 3 course meal deal for the Black Sugar Grill and when there for our anniversary dinner. The service great, the food was delicious and the price was excellent, 3 course meal for 2 for $75 thanks to a daily deal site. Would recommend this restaurant.

Have been to this restaurant both for lunch and Sunday breakfast. This time was again for breakfast. The selection is large and the food is very good. Portions are large and well priced. The only thing we found this time was the waitresses appeared new and needed training. Service was also on the slow side but not a problem to us as we were not in any hurry. One coffee was spilt and weak but was replaced without any problem.

Wife and I had the set menu for lunch through a deal on grab one. Great variety to choose from. We had entrée of risotto balls + calamari. Mains lamb shank + fish. Dessert Cream brulee' + Brownie. Portions were perfect for lunch. Good wine selection. Staff were prompt and friendly. We're on a tight time line and they catered perfectly. Very impressed.

We enjoyed the set menu - beetroot salad, calamari, Blue Cod (main) and venison (main) followed by creme brulee. Everything was delicious, and fish was so fresh, and the venison was declared "amazing". Service was very friendly, good wine list - and you can bring your own wine for a reasonable $7 a bottle corkage. We will definitely be going again.
