This dining area is situated in side a hotel which we were not staying at, however we found it online and it appeared recommended and at a reasonable price for breakfast. We enjoyed perfectly cooked soft poached eggs, bacon and mushrooms, with coffee and tea. The coffee was a bit strong, but otherwise a perfect start to the day in a nice quiet restaurant

A good friend and I had high tea at DeBretts Kitchen on Sunday 9th September and we had the best time! The service we received from Nancy and Luke was exemplary and the food totally delicious. Our favourite delicacies were the prawn cocktail, the pink meringue and the decadent East Street cocktail.
The restaurant is absolutely beautiful and our table was set perfectly. We were so sad when we left we wished we could stay for dinner. Oh well, next time!

After receiving very helpful recommendations by Linh, the duty manager, we booked for dinner. We had very nice 2 course meal. Customer service was good. The manager on the night was very attentive and polite. However, he was mumbling a lot so it was a little hard to hear him. If he could talk more clearly, it would have been perfect. Overall we enjoyed our dinner.

Recommended by Air New Zealand but the majority of the main course and side dishes arrived cold. I’m not normally one to complain but a friend was treating so, when asked we told them that the food was cold. They graciously took everything back and said that they would redo the order. However, what we got was a re-heat :( The veg arrived back piping hot but the chicken (although hot) was the same pieces of chicken reheated and way too dry to be edible.
The good news is they didn’t charge for the uneaten chicken but they did charge for the uneaten sides (who wants sides without a main???). VERY DISAPPOINTED :(

Thank Carol W
