Our server was amazing, food was delicious and well suited for sharing with a large group. The deserts and pizza were standouts

food was outstanding, the pizzas were some of the best we have come across in Auckland! Funnily enough one of the most simple dishes of heirloom tomatoes were the crowd favorite! service was good but could have been a bit more welcoming and attentive- but we do understand you are a busy place.

A celebration of fine food, the drinks were excellent and the service and atmosphere great. It was a shame that the bartender let the initial arrival down when we arrived for our 5pm booking 5 minutes early, instead of a welcoming smile were told we had to wait outside for 5 mins on no uncertain terms. Not my idea of welcoming hospitality and it took us a bit to get over the cool welcome, nonetheless we absolutely loved it.

I just wanted to thank the staff for being so attentive and kind. We had two kids with our group both of which are outgoing and really energetic and adventurous. The staff were patient and kind and welcoming to the kids as they ran around the restaurant and drew pictures for the girls waiting tables. It was lovely to see them so entertained and was just so touching to see the staff go above and beyond and move around them on the floor with ease (even when they were running and crawling around my goodness). We tried to tell the kids many times to sit down for the meal but I’ll be honest I’m sure they were much more interested in making new friends and exploring the area. The food was beyond fantastic, that goes without saying but the experience was made better by your team. Ngā mihi nui.

A really lovely experience. Tentative, kind service and the food was just pure, simple & delicious. It was nice to be able to book in advance due to level two - which took away any anxiety or delays for us on the night. Thanks!
