Great way to spend the last afternoon with my daughter before I return to the UK and don’t see her for at least a year.
We had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed the food and drink and wonderful service. Only slightly let down by the large group of people coming through the foyer for another event elsewhere in the hotel and held in the same close proximity to ourselves. But once they were gone we got back to enjoying ourselves and the view.
We went for a Fathers Day High Tea. The food was delicious, service amazing and the drinks kept coming!
Beautiful food, fantastic view, nice service. I would love to recommend to my friends and relatives.
Unfortunately this was not a great dining experience for us. When we arrived we were told we had one and a half hours dining time, which would have been fine if the food arrived quickly, however some time after we ordered we were told they did not have the food we had ordered so we had to reorder a couple of our dishes. After an hour we still had not received our food so we asked if we could stay beyond the 1.5 hours so we could have dessert as well, since it was a birthday lunch. The waitresses were very friendly and polite and organised another table for the booking after us so we didn't have to leave early. We didn't realise there were only low tables and couches, which made it very difficult to eat a sit down lunch. We had to either lean forward to the low table or balance our plates on our knees. The food was all fine except the battered fish came out cold. My son doesn't eat chocolate so he ordered the strawberry pavlova, however all the desserts came out on a base of chocolate sauce. Again the waitresses were polite and gracious and ordered another dessert for him that had no chocolate sauce in it. The setting of the restaurant is beautiful however I would suggest having tables you can eat properly at, and not restricting the dining time unless the food is going to come out quickly. The waitresses should also inform customers at the start if something on the menu is not available. Chocolate sauce should not be used in a dessert if it is not specified on the menu.
The food was great. Your parking is unclear. We thought we parked under Hilton, tends out it was Wilson. We got stung by $65 charge. The divide line is unclear.
Everything was fabulous!
It is always a lovely experience having afternoon tea at Bellini and last Saturday was no exception. My girlfriends and I absolutely enjoyed the atmosphere, the lovely view of the sea and the great service! We were all wowed by the presentation, especially now that you use the Zealong tea range. Love the tea smelling activity/ceremony and tea pots, nice touch there! The only down side was the desserts/sweets in the afternoon tea which we weren't quite disappointed with. The sweet scones were a bit too dry, the pink mousse just had too much gelatin so it didn't have the smooth texture and was tasteless. Weren't too sure about the cold drinking chocolate either... The lattes we ordered had inconsistency - some had too much milk froth, almost 1/4 of the cup, whereas some didn't have as much. They were yummy though. In summary, we absolutely loved the savoury dishes but were disappointed with the sweet ones. If you could please improve on the sweet ones we will definitely be back!
Great day, food was at a very high standard and staff were lovely, just one comment had to ask for our second tea. Lovely views over the sea.
Wow. Great service. Great food and great views. Treated like stars. We will be back
Excellent Service. I was 1 day late letting you know that we had a lactose intolerant person attending they advised me that they couldn't guarantee anything however they had advised the kitchen. The lady was over the moon with the food that she was given and would like you to pass on to the kitchen this feedback. A great afternoon had by all thank you.
We are a retirement village and took some independent living residents for high tea. They all thoroughly enjoyed it.
Love the Hi tea . I have been twice and both times the service and atmosphere at Bellini is fantastic. Food is great but if you are going with someone that could be expecting a more traditional style food, it may pay to request something that keeps them happy otherwise they can dampen the experience :-) Thanks Bellini for a great afternoon!!!
were not aware there were no normal tables so for a celebration it was a bit akward. The meals came out at all different times and wernt hot, cheeses platters ordered came out before the meal and were sent back. Very disappointed. Should have booked with Fish but wanted to offer more non fish meals to guests. Setting was fabulous overlooking the water
Probably the best high tea I have had in NZ and I go to many. The presention was out of this world! We didnt want to eat it as it lookec so amazing. Cant beat the virw too. Will so be back again!
Absolutely awesome and out of this world, thanks for making our 5 year anniversary so perfect. Put me in the good books for sure and enjoyed every aspect of the Bubbles High Tea!
The girls and I are so glad we chose to celebrate at Bellini and cannot recommend them highly enough. We all had specialty dietary requirements and the team did the most amazing job with our food to meet those needs. A wonderful afternoon with fabulous food, bubbles, gorgeous teas and sneaky cocktails. A must do …. and frequently!
The food was amazing. The staff were amazing... so friendly
The new high tea menu is definitely worth trying. Loved the savoury and sweet selection and the staff were on to it.
It was all perfect thank you :-) I am back again next Sunday with 6 friends & would recommend to many more :-) Not the last you will see of me .... just love this place !!!
The staff at Bellini went out of their way to make celebrating my mothers birthday a very special occassion. We will definitely be returning to Bellini for another high tea.
Service was awesome at the beginning but it was like everyone forgot about us after our food was served! We got the most expensive package for high tea which included quite a few drinks (3 bubbles, 2 hot drinks) and after the first drink we had to chase the staff for our following drinks consistently; nobody came to check up on us more than the initial point which was quite frustrating. It got to the point where we just gave up after our first hot drink and didn't even get to have the second one so for value for money, it didn't seem worth it. Shame as it could have been exceptional had we not been forgotten about! I'm a travel agent in New Zealand so in my spare time I like to take part in these kind of outings so I can discuss them with my clients. I would definitely recommend the minimum high tea package sans drinks but service needs to be stopped up quite a bit for those clients looking for the more inclusive packages with drinks involved!
Ross & Robin had a lovely time, service was fantastic. Would certainly come again. Thank-you very much for making our day. Robin Williamson
We all felt our waitress could have been more attentive to our table.
