I had my 21st dinner here and everything was perfect - it was very memorable and special. Food, atmosphere and service was exceptional.

Jack and his team prepared an exceptional vegan experience for us. We also saw what others were eating and their presentation looked as amazing as ours. We recommend it to anybody looking for something special in Auckland CBD. We will be back!

Amazing dining experience! Each course a beautifully designed and presented work of art. The owner/manager/chef was interested, interesting and informative about each course and our responses to them. Quite possibly the best dining experience I’ve had!

A true fine dining experience. The service was friendly yet professional. The food was artistically and beautifully presented which was a must to admire the creativity before tasting it. So many wonderful flavours in every dish and the verbal description for each was worthy of your undivided attention. Highly recommend for an intimate evening.

We had a lovely night. I love the beef tongue entree and wagyu deckle as my main. The server (Jack?) was very informative and good service of course. Thanks again for making our dinner a memorable one!

Had a wonderful birthday dinner. The astmosphere was peaceful and relaxing. Our waiter was the owner, he was so friendly, knowledgeable and couldn’t fault the service. The tofu mushroom starter was amazing, as were the burrata and kingfish. The wagu was one of my favourite dishes, the flavours of all the components were spot on! The pork belly was also fantastic, very rich and delish! Will be back, thanks so much!

What a great find. Greeted in the foyer and ushered into a cosy dining area with a view of the Sky Tower. Started with a cocktail each and then served some sourdough and brown butter. So delicious and whipped until fluffy. The starters arrived looking beautiful and after a careful explanation, we took our first mouthfuls. Bursting with flavours, we both looked up at each other, not needing to say anything. It was all there in the facial expression. We got to the end and were whispering how amazing the combination of flavours were. The dilemma was should we have a single mouthful, or combine multiple items from the plate in a single bite? Now the mains. While the pork belly didn't have the traditional crackling, it had been cooked so well, it melted in your mouth. The beef had been slow cooked even longer. Any nervousness about the choice of cut went with the first slice into the meat. The deep fried greens were a nice addition to the plate and palette, giving a new texture. Both desserts were ordered and both delivered in style. Not too sweet, nicely balanced. This diner will be back again. Forget heading to Europe for a Michelin star restaurant. Auckland has the equivalent right here and complements to the chef on serving us one of the best meals and dining experiences we've had. We will be back to try some of the other menu options.

Our first visit here - wonderful service, beautiful setting, stunning food! The special cocktails menu was an added bonus. Only suggestion for improvement would be, could the bathrooms be a little warmer...other than that we loved this experience, we would highly recommend it and we will definitely be returning.

Wow! Great place to celebrate a birthday after lockdown! Beautiful setting, superb food - the Wagyu steak was so tender and the dessert was divine. The Complementary sourdough bread and burnt butter was a lovely introduction to a fabulous meal. Attentive service through the evening made for a memorable meal.

Had a lovely dinner. The presentation of the food and the service are superb. Beautiful blends of tastes and unusual ingredients. The prices are on the high end. We were dining on a special deal which was good value for money, however full prices are quite high. The menu has quite narrow selection, not sure everyone would be able to find a fit. Be sure to check the menu before you go and see if it works for you. If you are after simple food, that's not the right place for you. It's everything but simple. The atmosphere is pleasant and quiet. Could use a bit more investment in decor but I guess it's a personal preference and many would appreciate the simplicity. Overall great experience and will be back

Had a great dinner, unfortunately it was almost empty due to Covid. Had the 5 course menu, worth every penny. Our host is also the chef and took the time to explain every dish. Would have loved to go back but ran out of time.
