Wow what a awsome meal, in extremely nice souroundings and great value for money. Meal was fantastic, we opted for the $75.00 3 course deal. Very good value when you consider you get the access to the Sky lounge as part of the meal. This alone was $29.00 worth. Thanks to Lee our waiter for the night, he was very... More

We went here thinking we had a reservation and found we didn't. With some polite conversation and checking of the records, they found they could accommodate us. It was our last night of a 2 week stay in NZ and wanted something special. This was it. The view in the revolving restaurant was beautiful and the food good. It was... More

Came back to orbit for my wife's birthday on our latest trip to NZ - there were some positives and some negatives. Positives - Food was really tasty, serves were not too big, and you left feeling good at the end of 3 courses. We also took our nearly 2 year old daughter with us who was accommodated really really... More

We were going to just ride up and then grab dinner elsewhere but the menu looked great and the prices seemed reasonable. I had the fish of the day (snapper) and my wife had the beef. Both were perfectly prepared. We shared the pumpkin soup and roasted vegetables and then tiramasu for dessert. Everything was very good including the service.... More

I definitely loved the view better than the food. Food was top class, but can't compare with the view.

Great meal, great views. Great experience. Make sure you also visit the observation deck once you have finished your meal. A la carte options or $75 for three courses from the menu.

The view is by far the best part about this place! They had a really good deal going on for a three course meal for two, which we did. The main dish was just okay. I was super excited to eat a lamb shank but it ended up being just alright. The dessert was very good and satifying. Overall, it... More

The location is still superb of course, but the quality and value of the food varies hugely. I had a ravioli starter costing $21, and it was tiny with nothing special at all about the taste. Can't imagine this costing more than $2 to prepare; if it did, then they need to increase the amount of the difficult-to-preceive "expensive" ingredient.... More
