I absolutely love Lava and come here at least once a week if not twice. Your staff are just the best so please pass this feedback onto them. Shruti, Maria, Varun, Zahil thanks for making every visit so enjoyable (there are more but I can't remember the names). Food is also delicious and always served so promptly. The breads are divine. As you can imagine coming every week it would be nice to have some alternatives on the menu... so here's my wishlist: - Chia Bread or a potato sourdough sometimes - Bernaise Sauce for the steaks (nothing beats a restaurant that does a fantastic bernaise) Everything else is faultless from the ambience, staff and food. Look forward to seeing you again in a few days
This is our favourite restaurant! Love the superb food & service. Always a joy to return.
it took like 30 minutes from our entrée to our main course. not impressed with the timing of the service. Saving grace was how good the food was.
It was our wedding anniversary and we thought you made very generous gestures to us! Wonderful!
A beautiful meal which we couldn’t fault Definitely be back again
Beautiful food made with thought and care very considerate service in an elegant setting the place to take that special person or people if you want to impress
We loved our meal. Thank you for the extras to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary - a glass of bubbles each and dessert platter. It was a lovely touch for a special dinner.
The service and attention to detail was impeccable and thank you for the presence of the waiters and waitresses. The restaurant was clean and was not too noisy. We did not get an amazing view but the warmth of the interior design made up for it. Our food was beautifully presented and we enjoyed all our three courses. The food had a simplicity and freshness. I appreciated the range of NZ wines on offer.
Great service and attention to detail - the food was exceptional.
Food, service and atmosphere were amazing, great place to celebrate a special occasion.
Great setting and amazing service! Food is really good as well. The venison tartare is a must try!
The service is always fabulous here. We love the food.
A wonderful meal. Well spaced out and segmented restaurant so that at a table of six we were easily able to talk to each other. Only comment was that drink orders at the start could have been a bit quicker. We were left waiting while the 6th member of our group turned up 10min later. It would have been much better with a glass of wine in hand.
Had an absolutely amazing dinner, the service was top notch and it was the best pork belly I have ever had. Will highly recommend to anyone
Beautiful experience, and beautiful atmosphere in the restaurant. The food was excellent and there was a nice variety to choose from. The server was very kind and had a lovely professional manner, she had an awesome name too which I wish I could remember! Ended with "ing" I think?? But yea, lovely experience, would highly recommend.
Fabulous dinner with friends. Great service and excellent standard of food.
Excellent food & service
Great service and really special flavours, delicious food. was given special treats for my birthday really appreciated the extra mile :)
Wonderful dining experience with awesome food and service. Thank you. The added touch of a special complimentary desert with Moet to celebrate our wedding anniversary was very nice and greatly appreciated.
Ihad the lamb and it was beautifully cooked to perfection. My wife and I shared the Chocolate Mousse dessert and we both remarked that it was "yummy". We will be back.
We have previously enjoyed dining at the Lava. However, we found this past experience to be fairly disappointing. The service was slow with lengthy gaps between courses. The food while tasty was also below our expectations. The eye fillet was sinuous and the octopus was tough. The dishes were served at a less than ideal temperature. Overall we are less inclined to revisit the Lava restaurant and could not recommend it as highly as we would like to.
the service team is very nice and friendly, quality ofq the of the food is excellent. the venison tartare is just fantastic, highly recommend.
