Fine dining is not a common occurrence for me, however I found Number 5 to be welcoming from the first interaction. Amazing service and impeccable food. I did not have a meal, I had a journey through the tastes and delights of New Zealand.Thank you so much for making my first experience of fine dining memorable. I highly recommend this hidden gem.

It’s the summer holidays in New Zealand, so my wife and I were fortunate to get a reservation during our Honeymoon. The restaurant was intimate and gave us the best culinary experience we’ve ever had. The service, ambiance, and food were all spectacular. We did a customized tasting with wine pairings and the beef carpaccio, Kingfish, Burrata, and Wagyu hanger steak were some of our favorites. The wine pairings were expertly matched as well. Also, don’t skip dessert! We can’t say enough positive things about our experience and would recommend to anyone.

Exquisite food. We had the vegan 3 course meal which was a clever combination of flavours. Our wine sommelier had a great knowledge of wine was able to bring us a bottle exactly to our taste. Quiet time of year with a new owner but I am sure once they are discovered will be well supported.

Royal service and an orgy of flavours and textures. The colours and presentation were a work of art in particular the carpaccio. The mushrooms taste was irresistible and matching beautifully the Maude Pinot Noir. The rose sorbet capped a sensational dinner. 10/10

Excellent evening and very impressed by all. Leido was outstanding and you were all so accomodating especially with the dietary requirements of one of our party. Good luck, I’m sure you will excel and I and the others will be back. Cheers Justine

It was a special occasion dinner (we went on our first date at No.5 forty years ago to the day) on a Tues so was very quiet. We were given a complementary glass of Prosesco which was a lovely touch. We were surprised at how few choices there were on the menu but were impressed with what they had to offer. We weren't expecting complementary hors d'oeuvres either but out came these amazingly tasty, beautifully presented morsels. Then our entrees and mains were equally as great, not big portions, and we were thankful for that because the flavours were rich and like a taste explosion, a lot of thought has gone into their menu. I wish we'd had room for dessert. We were the last to leave (just like 40 years ago) and the chef came out to have a chat. The service needs a slight tweaking, we had to ask for more wine and water glasses weren't kept topped up but he was a very pleasant fellow.

We were treated like we were the only people in the room. The food is exquisite and the service was exceptional. We are telling all our friends about the amazing night we had. The chef/owner came out to speak to us at the end of our meal and we understood how his passioin for food had translated to our meals. Just outstanding.
