Breakfast was good, and the view from the Vue was outstanding. We had two dinners there, and I did not find the food to be to my liking (vegetarian). Others in our group seemed to enjoy it more.

I always enjoy visiting this restaurant when I'm an in house guest at the Mercure as it has great food and wine and the service is excellent. And it has great views over the waterfront.

My meal was easily the best out of those in our party of four. Ample, tasty, well-balanced, nicely presented. I recommend the mushroom entree and the polenta fries. The fish was a good choice of main as well. My mates felt a little short-changed in terms of quantity. The smoked duck entree and venison main probably just met the criteria... More

It may be cheaper than some bars but the muxed drinks are no better than you'd find in a country hotel. The restaurant was virtually empty even though it was peak hour, the bar was empty apart from us. Draw your own conclusions. This is a great space going to waste. Very disappointing.

This is the restaurant atop the Mercure Hotel in downtown Auckland. It underwent a refurbishment about a year or so ago to modernise the interior and maximise the view. I have visited twice since the change and have been impressed. The food has been great and done in an Asian fusion, funky way. I haven't been disappointed yet. Service was... More

Give this restaurant a second chance... yet it was a disappointing experience. Had the pork belly as a starter. The flavour combination was nice however the meat was so dry that I thought in sending it back a few times but I just couldn't be bothered. My partner's starter was the mushrooms and it was nice. Then came the main.... More

We went to Vue for our wedding anniversary. The view from our table was exceptional - ferries arriving and departing and a cruise ship leaving. We were surprised by a glass of champagne and congratulations from the staff and then had a lovely meal. All the food was good, but the zucchini chips and dip were fantastic! The staff were... More

Went down for lunch and must say this large restaurant had NOT a SOUL present. The plain sheet of paper--MENU--had only 14 Mains---Soup, Oysters, Popcorn Chicken, Venison hotdog, Fried Squid, Smoked Chicken S/W, Caesar salad, Pastrami baguette, Open steak S/W and the 2 dishes we ordered....besides the 4 Sides and 2 Desserts. One of us ordered for the Slow Braised... More

Breakfast is a very good and varied buffet and I love their coffee machine which can adjust to strong, medium or weak. Dinner meals are quite mixed. The salmon was ok, but nothing to write home about. The steak and beef filet were good but a bit tough--probably grass fed so understandable. Lamb was excellent and pork was fine. Sardines... More
