We've eaten in Ziezo a couple of times now and both times it was really lovely. First time was not long after it opened. We went for hubby's birthday. To be honest we were expecting a few teething problems as it was very new at the time and there was a fairly large group of us, but nope! Everything was perfect. The second time was with another couple and again we had a perfect meal. Both times I had had steak. yum. The service is good. And I know some people have mentioned the decor - but I love the colour and the freshness of it. It's not cheap, but it is really good quality, so it totally worth it.

Had high hopes as it was recomended by our friends but it did not do it for us at all. Very expensive for over cocked meals, yes both, dizzy waitress and plastic chairs. Will we give it another go next visit to Keri? Probably not

We have traveled the world and eaten in many fine restaurants. This one took it a step further by way of their service. Not only was the food fabulous (and it was!), the owners made you truly feel welcomed - both by the front of house and the chef himself. If we did not live so far away (Washington, DC), we would be eating here every weekend. Next time we are in NZ, this will make the list of top places to go!

Note: The meaning behind the name is very interesting. "Ziezo" is a Dutch word that is similar to "voilà" in French. It is that sense of accomplishment after you complete something good. I thought this was inspiring!

We had a wonderful experience at Ziezo last night, what a good find! From the moment we first arrived we commented on the lovely decor and little details in the design. We chose a few starters and were very impressed by the prawns and the lavosh bread. The Greek-style fish of the day was a big hit, and the grilled vegetables it was served with were delicious. To finish the meal, 3 of us had the dessert specialty of the day, the tiramisu. It was amazing! Every mouthful was perfection. The 4th person in our group had the poached pears with homemade ice cream which he said was one of the best desserts he'd ever had. So all in all, a fantastic meal with reasonable prices, which will be hard to beat back home in Auckland!!
