Very disappointing - obviously making cut backs because of Covid restrictions but menu choices were very minimal and no options for sides is not good enough as very easy cooking. Bacon and eggs and that's it. We asked for avocado but apparently you had run out but then we saw the avocado crush going out so obviously saving it for that and then we asked for mushrooms but came just as 2 slices of bacon and 2 eggs so boooooooooooring anyone can cook that at home. Fritters just tasted of deep fried nothing else was there even anything in it or just batter with sourdough so crisp you couldnt even cut it and had to pick up with fingers. I was supposed to have 2 eggs got 1 - my daughter got 2 same dish!! I asked for my poached egg hard but my daughter didn't but hers came hard too so presume cooked together but 1 egg missing! Only reason I gave two for food and drink was for the coffee - very good. Very loud even the waitress couldn't hear what we were asking for and had to keep asking us and then finally walked around to be nearer. Been for dinner before and weren't very impressed but thought we would go again as had a visitor from out of town to enjoy the location/view but won't be coming back sorry.

Thank you to the Akarana team for a fabulous night for our 30 year school reunion. Everyone had an amazing night and will be talking about this for weeks I'm sure. Service was outstanding, thank you all so so much!

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!

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 .

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, 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.
