3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed yesterday NEW

I arrived at 630, about 15 minutes before my friend. Luckily it was no more than 15 minutes or I'd have called her and told her I'd meet her somewhere else. I walked in to an empty restaurant and 5 or 6 faces staring at me like I'd crashed a funeral. "Hello?" they said, like they were closed; but they... More

This has been a local of ours for many years. Great food, great wine and awesome staff. Definitely recommend it for a great night out. Breakfasts are awesome too. Love the canelleni beans and chorizo!

My then-fiancée and I decided to have our post-wedding dinner here - one of the reasons we decided on this was the professionalism and friendliness with which our queries were handled prior to actually confirming our booking. We dealt with more than one person before hand, mainly via telephone and email (including Cam and Slav) but Marina ended up being... More

The food is fabulous, the service was great - you know when you are witnessing good service, when the owner remembers your coffee order, when you have a regular networking meeting there with 20 other women - he remembers everyone's order! Great for breakfast meetings, lunch or dinner with an area that can be shut off.

I don't know why I have been back to this place more than once! Maybe I keep expecting it to improve.... The staff are friendly enough, but the food doesn't deliver for the prices charged. In fact, on the face of it, the menu reads really well. Italian. Love Italian and the menu has you salivating. However, quality of food... More

We had a work dinner for 8 people and we were staying local to the restaurant so to be fair I had low expectations; but what a pleasant surprise. The service was excellent, our waitress was engaging and helped with food and wine selections. I had the whitebait entree and was VERY happy, and the snapper fillet with risotto as... More

Quick coffee before heading home, but could not resist there lovely scones. My companions also had a very fresh cronut? Looked delicious. Nice selection of both scones and cronuts if you did not want a full lunch.

Popped in for an early light dinner and a glass of vino on our way in to the City for a show. An excellent menu and comprehensive wine list. We shared 3 starters which complimented our drinks and satisfied our tummies. Service was attentive and friendly. We live north of Auckland and this is one of our "go to" spots... More

We have been coming here regularly over the past three years. At first glance you don't expect there to be much, given the tucked away location on Albany highway. The roadworks might steer you away at present too, but it's definitely worth a visit, hence my review at this point in time. We love their breakfast so much so that... More

We have been here many times - just because the food, staff and location are excellent. Food is consistently of a high standard. Staff are friendly and attentive. We have had small intimate dinners along with family affairs - all catered for with professionalism but in an approachable friendly style also.
