The sun was shining. The covered patio was abloom with pink petunias - completely covered and real - not a single dead flower or leaf. The guitarist, Mike, was in good voice. Everything was perfect for a Sunday brunch. There were four of us - two couples and the patio was packed, usually a bad sign for good service. But,... More

Had a great meal here overlooking the viaduct Harbour - so good we finished off two bottles of excellent Sauvignon Blanc! Good variety of food well presented and sound service made the night. We are going back after coming back from the north!

Booking was smooth. The tables in restaurant are complete with immaculate linen cloths and the carpet makes for noise and chatter reduction. We ordered one dish of whitebait patties and one flounder dish. Like another reviewer we asked if it could be filleted at table but were told no.

Went here with a large group for dinner and was very pleasantly surprised. Service from Sacha was sharp and the food was excellent. Oysters won the day for me! Nice wine selection too.

Colleague and I were in Auckland and chose Soul for dinner last Monday around 6pm. They were fully booked but said they had a table until 7.30 which suited us. I had a crayfish salad which was divine. I have never been disappointed with Soul in either food or service. My favorite restaurant.
