Wonderful dinner at this delightful surprise in the heart of Auckland. Vegan options were outstanding. Great variety and thoughtful consideration in this menu which has a refreshingly wide variety of plant based options. Thank you for thinking outside the box! Lovely staff and wine selection also.

Hector's restaurant was a brilliant surprise! Imaginative and very flavorsome vegan dishes. Really enjoyed the pumpkin and almond cheese tempura. The vegan wine selection was also outstanding, we had a 2015 Three Paddles Pinot Noir. Friendly staff and nice environment.

We were staying at the hotel (which is fabulous) and made a reservation for two at Hectors. At the appointed time we showed up, but there was no one there to take us to our table. It was almost as if no one worked there. I bit of a lineup started to develop. Finally someone showed up and took us... More

Hectors restaurant offers a range of vegan and vegetarian fine dining dishes, as well as fish and meat. The restaurant is inside the Heritage Hotel and is set in an interior courtyard/atrium. The food has been lovely both times we have been although it lacks atmosphere there.

The accent appears to be made on special needs of vegan and gluten intolerant patrons but there is still enough choice on the menu to satisfy everyone once. The restaurant is situated in the center courtyard of a restored historic building giving it a warmth atmosphere. Service was attentive and the food very good.

We treated ourselves to the full buffet (at $34 a head) and were not disappointed.

Great :) Positives : Awesome service staff. Quality Food Great Setting Relative Value for Money Awesome Waiter and Floor Manager Negatives. Hopelessly inefficient and slow woman on restaurant desk. Air Con stuffy in both Restaurant and Lobby Usual slimy ripoff from Wilson's Parking Next Door. No reflection at all on Hectors or The Heritage.
