Description: An evening at Nicolino Restaurant & Cube Bar on the North Shore is like being transported to another world for a few relaxing hours. Since opening 13 years ago, Nicolino Restaurant & Cube Bar has become a popular establishment and destination for delicious, authentic Mediterranean cuisine. It provides a "taste of Greece and the Mediterranean" in every sense of the word: the food, the beverages, the atmosphere, the entertainment and the relaxed, informal but attentive service that is characteristic of Greece and the Mediterranean.

My husband and I have never had a bad night here. We have had great romantic dinners, graduation dinners, (which was our most recent visit), and a sensational post wedding party. Whether sharing a large seafood mezze platter between friends, listening to live music on a Thursday night over traditional Greek mains, or enjoying some home made baklava with a glass of ouzo there is a real romance to this restaurant. Some nights even the owner would traditionally smash plates and dance with us. Even though, like most Devonport places, the restaurant is small it is full of heart. With walls that are covered with good memories. I would go much further than saying it is North Shore's best Greek restaurant; it is NZ's best Greek restaurant. When coming to Devonport we like to make a booking to be sure we can get a table. But if not there is at least the takeaway menu with all the delicious seafood. I found the presentation of the food honest and hearty. Even though I have a laundry list of allergies and intolerances there is always something there for me.

Definitely enjoyed our meal!!! A very relaxed atmosphere filled with candle light. The staff were friendly and ensured we were comfortable with water and drinks. Our meals were delicious and well portioned. The steak was cooked to perfection while my Dad enjoyed a vegetarian lasagna.

After a day of watching gymnastics on the North Shore we headed to Devonport for an evening meal where we discovered Nicolino Restaurant & Bar. The intimate and quirky restaurant deserves to be patronised as the service is pleasant and helpful and, above all, the food is well cooked and presented in generous potions.
We enjoyed the lasagne and the fettucine al pollo along with shrimps and pizza for our family table. No one left the table feeling unsatisfied!!!
We would certainly head back to Nicolino next time we do a trip across to Devonport.
