Enjoyed the meal and will certainly revisit this place. Only one piece of advice will be to do better on cleanliness and hygiene all around the restaurant. Overall--8/10

Had lunch here with my family and was served great clamshell, fish and chips, and one catch of the day with paella style cuscus and salsa verde. All nicely cook, good family restaurant but not maybe a cosy evening restaurant

This place used to be amazing however it is my understanding that there has been a change of ownership. Since then the quality has dropped significantly but the price remains the same. Should have kept the old menu and maintained the same standards.

Came here for lunch after climbing the harbour bridge with my two teenage daughters. We were quite hungry so ordered a couple of dishes each, which was too much! The food was delicious and even thinking about it now makes me hungry. Recommend walking thru the fish market before sitting down with a great choice of food. I eat here... More

I have bought fish here at the AFM since it opened. It must have changed owners or management since I was last there because whoever owns it now does not know how to look after fish. Fish with sucken eyes, sticky gill cavities, loss of colour etc showed me that the fish I saw should have been in the fish... More

We have eaten oysters, ceviche and grilled fish. All the food was great and tasty, but a bit scarce. All the staff was helpful, but it is a pity that there were some birds jumping on our table. It is worth a visit when you come into the restaurant through the fish shop.

Alongside the Seafood Central cafe/restaurant is the Sanford Fish Market which is worth a visit in its own right. The range of fresh (and frozen) fish is a joy to behold. We found the best way to purchase local fish was to buy it whole and they then fillet/dress it for you. We visited on a number of occasions and... More

We came here for dinner our first night in Auckland. The restaurant, tucked behind the Auckland fish market auction building is not much to look at. There are plenty of outdoor tables- simple and uncomplicated. Service was ok. The waitstaff was friendly and very helpful with our questions although they did have to go back to the kitchen to have... More

Dirty tables, even after cleaning. Confused staff. Untrained and unprofessional but friendly. Only three service personnell for about 200 seats. However, the Haloumi was good, the oysters questionable.
