Sagar was an awesome waiter We had a super fussy vegan on our table and he was able to answer all the questions on food preparation and content :-)
We had an amazing meal, I cannot speak more highly of the pumpkin ravioli, it took me on a flavour journey and I have been raving about it to anyone who will listen. It’s so lovely to be able to eat such an outstanding vegetarian meal. I’ll be looking for another excuse to return.
Great vegan and vegetarian food as usual, and the service outstanding. The dining experience is one of high standard. Valet parking a nice little extra to feel special.
We were forgotten about. Other tables were being served and we were left waiting. Eventually we flagged down a staff member to order our meal. They seemed suprised no one had done it yet. Over 30 minutes sitting and waiting before we have to catch the attention of a staff member walking past isn’t exceptable.
It would have good if we were advised of the set menu as well. We didnt see the option until leaving the restaurant.
We loved the high tea and think the selection was one of the best we have had.
Thank you for awesome experience Hectors team! It was my anniversary dinner. We ordered prawns for entree and I had pork belly and my husband had sirloin for main. All dishes were divine. Main dishes were quite big portion. Definately good value for money. Service was great as well. All floor staff were attentive and helpful. Thank you for So'o especially for kept checking us everything was okay and need anything else. I will definately come back next time! :)
The layout of the buffet was poor and created confusion and congestion. Not very festive at all - a few more traditions wouldn’t have gone astray. The restaurant couldn’t keep up with service - crockery and cutlery weren’t always available. We had to ask for things like cream and crackers to go with the cheese. And then when it cane time to pay, my deposit had been incorrectly recorded and I had to wait while that was sorted out.
Way overpriced for the amount and quality of food you get and terrible atmosphere. You're basically dining in the middle of the hotel courtyard so it's incredibly quiet and sterile. I paid $30 for a dish that I could have gotten from any non-descript lunch place in the CBD and would have cost me $15 and came out in half the time. Would not recommend.
Buying online for set menus would be a lot easier instead of just the option of a gift voucher, otherwise great.
It was a great Christmas Lunch. Food was fresh and well presented. The staff were excellent and they went out of their way to seat our family together, when we had booked separately - we really appreciated this. Above our expectations!
Wonderful service from all staff. Upon request to the food and beverage manager, the chef prepared alternative food to accommodate for some food sensitivities helping to add to a very happy Christmas and dining experience at Hectors. Thank you
Christmas Dinner Excellent.
Good food spoilt by no thought to the fine details. No bowls near the fruit salad. Hot water for tea was cold. Needed a spoon to serve the fruit salad. They had salad server! Also, if serving sparkling wine, do NOT call it Champagne. I,m sure it will improve with attention to details like these.
We've come to Hector's every year for the Christmas Buffet dinner, driving up from Gulf Harbour on the Hibiscus Coast of Auckland. This year was a big improvement over last year (2017)... Food, service, atmosphere were excellent this year, so we'll book it again for next Christmas.
We were a little dissapointed for the price that the tables were not more festive. Soup spoons instead of dessert spoons and no crackers with the cheese.
So many vegan options as well as a great selection of seafood and high quality steak/lamb very flavoursome meal 👍
a choice of "free drinks" would be appreciated for those who do not drink alcoholic champagne. orange juice or other fruit juice type drinks. Tongs on the cheese board would make it easier to pick up cheese. milk should have been provided at the tea and coffee table. we had to ask.
Great food and staff
Jasbir was amazing, so patient with our diet requests and very helpful and kind. Ravioli was the best I’ve ever had!! Loved the birthday message for my Mum. Thanks so much :) 5 ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Hector's is trading in on the memory of the Farmer's dining experience in the past yet not one photo depicting a memory was present. My overseas guests were very disappointed having fond memories of Farmers Department store from their childhood. The staff had little understanding of the history of the building. The wine we were first served was corked but the replacement was good. The water we were given had 'floaties' and we had to ask for fresh water. The food was good however the three courses were all served together on one plate. That would be fine if they were all hot meals however the cold dessert should have been brought to the table separately- not on the same plate. We were the only lunchtime customers. Now I know why. So much more could be done to improve the interior to attract the many many potential customers who would like to enjoy dining in a heritage building that evokes memories of the past. Sadly disappointing.
Just then best food. Presentation a 10 and flavours a 10.
Lovely atmosphere. Food was good. Overall a good experience.
We had a lovely high tea for my grandmothers 90th. She throughly enjoyed it and reminisced of the times she spent at Farmers Trading Company. All the food was delicious. The waitress serving us was so friendly and accommodating. I would highly recommend Hectors for a high tea.
