So while visiting this lovely setting today we came across a very busy place with functions taking place. Immediately staff were stretched enormously but never regained themselves. Coffee wasn't great. The person at the counter with a lovely accent this morning was soooo rude! Bathrooms are SO awkwardly located so when there is a function - how do you get... More

Went here on a sunny day for a lunch with 3 friends. We had not booked and were prepared to just try our luck knowing that it could be too busy for us. We got there at 11.30am. Although very busy as we had thought they were able to find us a little table outside which we were most grateful... More

We had a pleasant Good Friday lunch, seated outside. My impression is that Auckland prices are quite high but that may be because I am calculating prices in pounds sterling. With the ''holiday'' 15% surcharge, lunch here was just a tad expensive but I must say we all enjoyed the food. Sat outside and enjoyed the warm weather, we ordered... More

This Cafe in the Auckland Domain is adjacent to the hot houses and fernery, and only a 5 min walk to the War memorial Museum. It overlooks a pond with seating outside, on a balcony (semi shade) or inside. The food was very good, the service a little slow, but to be fair, the restaurant was very busy. Menu included... More

Service is fine, area lovely, and the chips are good. Very disappointed with the kale salad that was drenched in oil tasted extremely salty, defeating the point of ordering a healthy meal.

After wandering around the wintergarden, this was the perfect place to have a drink, a bite to eat, and rest weary feet! I thoroughly enjoyed a local apple cider and a slice of lemon tart. Delicious. Would very much recommend.

Situated near Auckland Museum and Wintrrgarden. Arrived for lunch. Good menu - bagels, salads, burgers and other specials. I had chicken schnitzel with salad. It was well cooked and the salad was substantial. Choice of wine, craft beers and soft drinks. Nice array of cakes. Outside and inside tables.

Had lunch here today 29/12/2016. Food was actually very nice, however the chicken burger that a member of my party ordered had all the butt ends of lettuces on the burger. Now unfortunately butt ends of lettuces are usually consigned to the bin, but in this instance it was not. The waitress had such limited knowledge of English that the... More

The service was very poor and there was no excuse as it wasn't busy. The meal was very average and not worth the price. They offered us water to start with, but never came back to offer to refill our glasses. The sauce on the meals was cold. We asked for the sauce in the side dishes to be heated... More
