With a prime spot on St Heliers beachfront, Moretons is magical escape of sea, sand, and good food. The inside is large and spacious with plenty of room to mingle and socialise, but the main affair is the outdoor seating. The white tables provide the perfect view of Rangitoto, to enjoy with a coffee or wine, and share plates from a mix of cuisines.
We went there for the bottomless dumplings, they were a decent size and really delicious. It was fairly priced for all you could eat and a drink. The dumplings took around 10-15 minutes to come out but they were good at taking regular orders to keep the flow. The only thing I could fault is the amount of soy sauce, we were given a tiny shallow soy sauce bowl for the two of us to share and when we ran out and asked for more were still given only one little dish. So we had to ask every 5 mins for more which got tiring. They also didn’t supply chop sticks, which again is minimal but eating dumplings with a fork was just odd. Atmosphere and music were really good and the staff were friendly and accomodating.
Hi Raine many thanks for sharing your feedback and the kind words about the staff and atmosphere. We are always looking to improve the experience and have ordered a heap more chopsticks for this event. We are also looking at different ways to provide the soy sauce. Many thanks and see you again soon!
Saturday night quick dinner before a function. Food was ok but it’s really a local bar that serves some food. Very noisy. Probably our mistake in picking the venue. Would come back for drink & bar snacks.
Hi David - apologies for the timing we had a large function in the back room and the atmosphere would have been pretty busy. Hope to see you again soon!
Perfect service and food for a perfect day. Special word of thanks to the young people who waited tables and ensured we were happy with everything.
Thanks Murray for the kind words. See you again soon!
Great food, great service, will definitely be back.
Thanks Kat - see you again soon!
Everything from reservation to service to was extremely poor - I am local and will not come again
Hi Bryan - very sorry to hear about your experience. Please contact us at [email protected] to discuss further. Many thanks
Great service, food very good. Fab for kids. Only complaint was noisy as very busy, but Father’s Day so expected
Very helpful staff easy to dine there with young children
Nice night and despite the place being packed with punters there to see the Fire Artists ,the service was attentive albeit a little slow and the food was great. Very polite and reponsive waiting staff ..good job Morestons.It would be excellent to see more of this type of entertainment in St Heliers .
Very pleased with my visit. Atmosphere complemented the full range of customers, from friends/family to dates/partners
Food is nice. Lightening can be improved.
I would consider it has the best chips I have ever had and the atmosphere and the lighting were perfect for any events i.e dating. Definitely coming back next time if I stop by the bay:)
We had a fantastic night. Thank you for looking after us so well. Big thumbs up to Whitney for all her help.
Hi Jeff - glad you had a great time and thanks for the feedback! We will pass your kind words onto Whitney! Thanks and hope to see you again soon!
Great atmosphere, service and wait and bar staff friendly and hard working. Thank you 😊
Hey Sam - thanks for the great review! Catch you again soon for some bubbles by the sea
Great food and service. Definitely try the pork belly and eggs bene. Table was alittle sticky and room got really hot...but staff were awesome and turned the gas fire down. Overall a great Mother's day experience and venue. Cheers
Felt the small dishes ( eg bao’s etc) were a bit expensive for what they were. We would have liked to ordered a selection but it was too expensive as a lunch.
The beef brisket was good. However, I was very dissatisfied with my experience at Moretons. The drinks were very average, the starting platters apart from the beef brisket were terrible especially considering what we paid. The service was less than average - i appreciate that our waitress was probably tired from a long shift so maybe that she lacked care into how she was treating us. But i did not appreciate her coughing over the food! Then when I went to use the restaurant gift card I was given it was declined (which is not Moretons fault) but no one behind the bar could offer advice on how to use it despite me calling in advance double checking that the card would work. It was my partner and I's anniversary and we had been looking forward to celebrating it for weeks. I left almost in tears after what was meant to be a really special night. I will be telling my friends and family not to bother visiting Moretons.
Hi Sally, Thanks for letting us know about your experience, we’re so sorry we didn’t deliver on this occasion. Your feedback is an essential part of how we improve our service and we have some staff training booked in to address this. Please can you provide an email address so we can discuss this further - we hope you feel you can try us again sometime soon.
We had a lovely evening, service was good and food was delicious. Staff were also really obliging about letting us bring our own birthday cake, which we really appreciated. Thanks
We had a large booking which expanded on the last day - Moretone catered so well for us. Thanks so much

Always enjoy high standard of food, value for money, friendly professional staff excellent location, facilities and atmosphere. Highly recommended
