Excellent food. Must try green tipped muscles. The sauce was delicious. I had a skewer of shrimp, scallops and muscles. Very good. Our Irish server of our drinks was delightful. Our good server must have New as she struggled with understanding our orders. All in all a good experience.

Located right next door to the Best Western President hotel, this restaurant provided a very good meal. The focus of the menu is clearly meat; a vegetarian need not think of eating here. Among the meat choices, steaks are clearly the focus. Very pleasant and efficient staff. A favorite while in Auckland.

Amazingly quick service, but it was only 6pm! Reef and beef was really good, however homemade chunky fries and interesting salad would have made it. Hubby had the sirloin - big piece, but slightly chewy

We attended as a large group of 15 and all efforts were made to see that we were seated comfortably and together. Plenty of room in the upstairs area for this. Found the food to be somewhat expensive and of varying quality. The staff attentive to our large group with no great delay to our requests.

The restaurant decor was rather dated and uncomfortable seating - but the food was tasty. I had the seafood brochettes and my husband had the chicken schnitzel. Both wine and beer were also good.

What a cool little place tucked away off Victoria Street. Our meals came out super fast and were absolutely spot on. We also ordered the camembert which had a 'secret sauce' on top to die for - I could have had it as dessert! Waitresses were lovely and very accommodating as we were tight from time (as were the chefs)... More

On 21 January I held my 60th birthday celebration dinner here with 30 of our good friends. As always Tony's were very accommodating. The food and service was great and well timed and the staff were very attentive and helpful. We had a wonderful night in our own area upstairs and the staff were all happy to hang around quietly...

Us 4 get to order different steaks which all were cooked property and taste great. However for the oyster dish, it wasn't as fresh as we were expected. How unfortunates that it was pricey dish as well. So... Great place for steak, but not so much for oyster.

Had a shockingly bad German waitress didn't even bring us water ...her waitresses skills were "want anything else" broken English Had to wait 30 minutes for the wine to turn up I asked if it was turning up any time soon...

Would never have seen/entered this place if it wasn't for trip advisor! On the recommendation of the lamb chops, hubby and I checked it out for dinner. Food was delicious! He loved the potato croquette but wished there was more than one! The chops were so meaty and there were so many of them! I wished mine were a little... More
