A lovely setting. We were returning after ten years. Loved the setting and atmosphere. We were treated very special during the nite. 5 stars for that. We had the chefs choice. Overall we loved the food but it was too much for us in the end. Having bread with the first three courses was too much we felt. The third course confused us. It felt like we had gone back to the start of the meal. For two people what was served for the third course was far to much, when had with bread. The cream brûlée was an excellent desert, mine needed a few more seconds to solidify the top, it was presented semi soft and sticky rather than the crunch. Little detail I guess but consistency is key. Overall we left full but would not be recommending to friends that they go for the Chefs Choice. Would be good to know if the chef changes what’s included in this menu choice.

We dined at the restaurant today. Food and service are very good. However the place is full of flies which continually need shushing away. Actually spoilt a great time if I am honest. CARLTON MORRIS AUCKLAND

I have been to the Hunting Lodge Restaurant & Cellar Door many times and know that the service and care is always exceptional. Last night still managed to be the best night I have had at the restaurant. Beautiful food and wine and fantastic attention and service. Well done again and see you soon.

We couldn’t fault our dining experience at all. Food was great, staff really accommodating and attentive and finished off with a superb Espresso Martini.

Haven’t been to the venue for around 14 years but what a treat (still) it turned out to be! The Chef’s Selection with the “wee tipple” wine pairings was just wonderful. The food was fresh and seasonal, the combinations just right & the portions appropriate. Our Maître d’ was knowledgeable, very pleasant and attentive. Really loved the whole experience - we’ll be back 😊

Just as great a place, ( perhaps even better) as it was 37 years ago on our engagement lunch. Thanks, highly recommended .

Great restaurant in a fabulous location! Can sometimes be a little loud when lots of children running around and screaming at lunch time. Will try dinner and hopefully not so many kids.

I feel like a fool for never coming here before. This place has to be one of Auckland's best spot - if not the best. It has an outstanding vibe, beautiful setting and the food was AMAZING. I've told everyone I know they need to come here and I'll definitely be back. Thanks Hunting Lodge :)
