I chose this place for my birthday dinner and WOW was I impressed. So many delicious vegan choices on the menu (as opposed to the usual 1 or 2 items I have to cobble together anywhere else). The plating was a work of art as well. My friend group ended up ordering just about every vegan item on the menu... More

Hectors is a lovely fine dining restaurant and the meals we had were really lovely. Unfortunately we had an early booking on a quiet night and we we constantly being interrupted by staff asking how our meal was going. They were very nice but it was overkill. The restaurant is visually appealing and the meals very good.

Fantastic restaurant, great variety for vegetarians and the food was delicious. Servers were very attentive and friendly. The night we were there the restaurant was not full so it lacked a little atmosphere but we had no complaints. If you are a vegan or vegetarian it has a lot to offer!

Our first night in Auckland, had dinner here. Restaurant is located in the atrium with palm trees throughout. The service was okay but dinner was wonderful.

Vegan meals are available and sound really interesting. Our wait staff may have... More

Wonderful dinner at this delightful surprise in the heart of Auckland. Vegan options were outstanding. Great variety and thoughtful consideration in this menu which has a refreshingly wide variety of plant based options. Thank you for thinking outside the box! Lovely staff and wine selection also.

Hector's restaurant was a brilliant surprise! Imaginative and very flavorsome vegan dishes. Really enjoyed the pumpkin and almond cheese tempura. The vegan wine selection was also outstanding, we had a 2015 Three Paddles Pinot Noir. Friendly staff and nice environment.

We were staying at the hotel (which is fabulous) and made a reservation for two at Hectors. At the appointed time we showed up, but there was no one there to take us to our table. It was almost as if no one worked there. I bit of a lineup started to develop. Finally someone showed up and took us... More

Hectors restaurant offers a range of vegan and vegetarian fine dining dishes, as well as fish and meat. The restaurant is inside the Heritage Hotel and is set in an interior courtyard/atrium. The food has been lovely both times we have been although it lacks atmosphere there.
