About Vue Restaurant

With one of the best views of the ocean harbour, Vue is a luxurious setting to unwind and socialise at.

Nestled on the top floor of the new Grand Mercure Auckland Hotel, Vue is a dining oasis within a vibrant metropolis with food as beautiful as its views.

The menu reflects the seaside destination and is rich in local seafood, infused with flavours and modern techniques.

Tip: our dishes are best shared! We can never pass up the famous king prawn red curry or the delicate Cloudy Bay calm linguini. For a heartier meal, bite into a Wagyu double cheeseburger or braised lamb shoulder with a side of truffle fries.

As for desserts, they’re to die for! Smooth chocolate paves, a light, citrusy lime trifle and a toasted to perfection coconut crème brulee.

If you make it to breakfast, you’re in for a treat. The full buffet is complete with gluten-free items, a make your own juice station, buttery pastries, crispy bacon and eggs delicately cooked to order.

Vue offers a decadent dining experience that’s a feast for the palate and the eyes with stunning harbour views where you can watch the yachts and city life go by.

Thank you for giving us a wonderful evening. We loved the atmosphere - the temperature was a bit cold. The view is just amazing! The food and service was great. We will definitely be back.

We really appreciate the superb service and delicious food. The ‘Vue’ is outstanding in every way... and one of my most favourite dining experiences. Of particular note is the fish crudo and the linguini... can’t wait to come back

The food was delicious, served quickly, nice and hot. We 5 enjoyed both mains and desserts. The views were great, nice atmosphere. There were multiple service mistakes: forgotten wine glasses, wrong teas delivered, staff confusion about what drinks were ordered etc. Other little details which were surprising for an upmarket restaurant: lids missing on some teapots, teapots not full, one pot delivered sans tea, serving tea in chunky coffee cup, delays with getting hot drinks. It seemed like the service staff were trainees, not experienced staff. Nonetheless, the food was so superb that we will be back

Great restaurant and atmosphere. My husband and I chose the Vue Restaurant for our 28th wedding anniversary and were made to feel very special. The meal, the view and the service were all excellent. We will definitely be back!

Staff were excellent, professional and were still able to smile. Views were amazing but we didn't get a window seat so our views were limited, be sure to ask for window seating. We were on the set menu as using a Grabone voucher, Entrees were raw fish, raw beef, and Tofu none of which appealed to me at all. Mains were good portions and very good quality. I had the burger partner had a pasta dish, very nice.

The food was amazing...service a bit slow with a wrong drink order. Not sure how you can justify $10 for water is beyond me.

You need to provide good Air Con in very warm summer like now, also we use to pay $99 for 3 courses meal not long ago and you compliment nice roll bread. Now we paid $89 for 2 courses meal without any complimentary. Would be nice

We’d bought a grabone voucher for the two course meal. Thinking it’d make us get treated like cheapskates/lesser beings. But from start to finish the friendly service was impeccable! The food was beautifully served and some of the nicest dishes we’ve eaten. Lovely restaurant, great views, very smart but relaxing. Was a bit sucky to have dressed up but to still see some people eating there dressed down but likely they were using the hotel and were having dinner there. That’s no detriment to the restaurant but worth a mention.

Happy hour drinks seemed pricey, 4 beers and 4 double vodkas $80. Dinner menu confusing no normal starter, main, sides etc instead everything seemed mixed together waiter had to tell us what dishes were main size. We had braised lamb which came out with a whole lot of watery juice which made everything else soggy. The other meal a scotch fillet steak, it was rare like asked but very tough and chewy it was flooded with a sauce that was average and shoestring fries. We both thought the meals were very poorly presented for a nice hotel, we both got sides broccoli and a salad which was nice. We stayed here a year or 2 ago and weren't impressed with the food then, thought we'd give it another go not again.
