I recommend Soul for the quality and flavour of its fish. My Hapuka was delicious, as was my friends Teriki (apologies for the spelling...) The sides of salad and fries were excellent. Absolutely fabulous selection of wine. Service was friendly and efficient.

Soul is located on the waterfront with amazing views of Auckland's Viaduct Harbour. The décor is beautiful and the ambience lovely. The food was a bit of a let down though and the service was average as well.
