About Akarana Eatery
Located in Okahu Bay, Akarana Eatery brings you all the flavours of the sea through top-quality, seasonal a la carte dishes. This flavorful addition to the Hyundai Marine Sports Centre is brought to you by MASU’s Executive Chef, Nic Watt. The colours of the ocean continue inside, with baby blue sofa seats and crisp white chairs.
The meals lacked imagination, especially the lamb shank pie. The service was slow and slack. The waiter didn’t want to pick up the dirty plates when he walked past several times. We had to wait over an hour from the time we ordered to receiving our meals, and then we didn’t receive all we ordered til we had to ask for the rest of our orders. Very disappointed.
We were a big team and thank you for putting up with us all. It worked really well with the kids having the side room to keep them contained. Really appreciate you having us and all our friends loved the place so will be coming back for sure!
Great venue, people and food. We’ve been a few times now and it is always great
Wait staff indifferent - supervisors are excellent
Really good. Lovely waitress. Have had her before and she is excellent. Always happy. It was really warm in there though. Maybe open a couple of windows. Loved it today .
Great atmosphere with band playing, quite loud but enjoyable. Our waitresses were great and even though busy night drinks and food served quickly and with a smile.
Its great to have such a nice place to go for something a bit special where you know you can depend on quality and service.
Service was prompt and the staff were great. The drinks were well prepared!
We are Members and enjoy the many aspects of the Akarana- OK closing on Sundays during the Winter at 3.00pm possibly could be reviewed to say open at 9.00am and close at 4.00pm on those days. Of course the waterfront views would have to rate as up there with the best in Auckland.
Great location and atmosphere. Service can be a little slow when busy. Food is a good quality. Value for money ok. If you are looking for some place new with interesting harbour views well worth a try
Lovely spot looking over the harbour to Ragitoto from outside in the sun and sheltered from the wind. A pleasant spot for lunch and the gnocchi was delicious
We had our work function there to celebrate we come out of lock down. Firstly I have to say book on line is pretty easy, the view at the restaurant is amazing. The staffs there are very friendly and efficient and food is good too. We definitely come back.
It was a perfect waterfront setting for my birthday with girlfriends - plenty of space and great service with a lovely view of Rangitoto.
Almost everything was perfect. Food was amazing. Waitress was awesome. Coffee great. The floor manager ( gather he had that position, Grey haired gentleman) seemed stressed, a little grumpy and serious. A smile goes a long way if you are under pressure or too busy to talk or have banter with patrons. Frontline can let all other excellence down. Efficiency does not have to come at the expense of the way it is portrayed. Overall fab experience
We had a lovely lunch at Akarana for my Mum's 78th birthday. Lovely food, and such a great outlook! Many thanks, Sally
We had a lovely, low key lunch. Was a bit windy outside so a tad drafty inside (meant front door slammed when people left too).
Had a lovely lunch thank you but the prices are what I would expect for dinner especially $16 for a glass of wine.
We waited 33 minutes from order to service for breakfast The female Maitre D was not at all pleasant , however our table waitress made up for it The food selection wasvery ordinary at this time.
Delicious menu, beautiful location
Disappointing experience on a beautiful sunny day. Food average & our waiter never smiled once or looked like he wanted to be there. Such a stunning spot but will be hesitant to return unless I hear some positive feedback from friends
Very efficient waitress with a lovely smile!
Fabulous brunch in the sun. Wonderful service and food. Lucky to have such a spot by the water.
A bit slow but great quality when it arrived. Delicious!
Our table wait just didn’t want to be there. Had the personality of a limp lettuce leaf. Very disappointing totally spoiled a special Birthday celebration.
Great food, relaxed environment and fantastic view. Very helpful staff.
