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.
Hi, Nice staff and prompt service ! We had a great family dinner.
Serving staff were lovely and loved all the huge plants in the restaurant but it was very cold and echoey in there. The food was ok on the plant based menu but a bit bland and basic for the price.
The Plant Based menu gave many tempting options. Loved the idea of having a separate menu! The food was delicious, Thank you! Service spot on. Only one thing, the bar area needs updating to improve the atmosphere.
Delicious as always! Thanks Hector's 😊
It's definitely the best restaurant for vegan and vegetarians. So many choices and the food is delicious.
The food was great but the service was terrible. Very difficult to engage with the wait staff.
Great vegan high tea - the size and choice was amazing! 2 choices of teas too and the service was great! Will be back :)
I had a wonderful High Tea with my family & friends. A wonderful and delicious variety of food, excellent you cater well for vegans/vegetarians also! Great service from everyone at the Hotel. Will definitely recommend and return again. Thank you!
Excellent option for vegan dining in Auckland
High quality, tasty and hearty food with great service!
It took over an hour from when we sat down to receive our food. Service needs to be a lot faster as it was a very quiet night so no reason why it should take that long.
Excellent food and great selection.
LOVED the Mid Winter Vegan Buffet! A great idea and the food was absolutely amazing. Service was fantastic too, thanks for a great evening at your restaurant :-)
You have a dream team Hectors Restaurant. Food, drink, service all top notch, including catering for our vegan triplets having their 21st birthday dinner. That lovely service -attentive, always there at the right time, genuine smiles...what more can I say? We are so grateful you made our night so very memorable. We’ll never forget our night at Hectors Restaurant.
Great place for people on a plant based diet
Plant based menu is amazing!
Very nice setting albeit looking a little tired, that said it didn't take anything away from a great experience. The food was delicious the broth especially was good. Will definitely return!
Very quiet on a Monday night. The meat-free three course meal was the winner on the night.
Excellent service by the staff. Very well taken care of from the minute we stepped in.
The tea room was such a wonderful place to hold the event with the old decor and view out to the harbour. The food was amazing like always. Would have liked to see a different selection of wine as not everyone drinks Bubbly. Service was great and staff were friendly however the tea was not offered until we asked for it part way through the service.
