This is high end food that is really nice. The atmosphere is friendly and welcoming and I have really enjoyed my meals here. Not that cheapest of places but then if you want nice food your paying for it and it is worth it.
The engine room is stunning every time. This food is always beautifully presented and is absolutely delicious. The dining area has such an amazing view as well. They often have some really interesting options and seasonal food that comes in the they always make it so great. One of my best dining experiences.
Try not let the price of things get the best of you before you actually eat there. Must be some of the best food in the country. Hence the awards is won. Worth every cent.
Even better now since they have opened the venue up bigger.
My favourite restaurant in Auckland - fairly expensive, but so worth it! The wait staff are very attentive without being intrusive or irritating, the food was amazing, and all appropriately priced. The goat cheese souffle was delicious, the asparagus and pea risotto was so fresh and tasty. Wines were from lesser known estates and it was great to be able to have a glass or 2 of something relatively obscure but absolutely on the money. We went for lunch on a Friday, and I must say it was just perfect. Would go again in a heartbeat. You need to book a few weeks in advance!
