Risotto is bad, steak OK. Service ok, better than non existence. If you own one of the eDINE card (I think they got the entertainment logo there as well), they wont grant the 20% discount. They even not to bother checking as they saw the...More

Probably one of the worst restaurants I've ever been to. A party of five. To be fair one of the party was very happy with his pizza...... Two of the party had feta and pea risotto. The rice tasted as though it had been cooked...More

We ate at Avanti several times. Not a huge menu nor the biggest of spaces between the fixed sets and tables ( go for a seat you can move of you're claustrophobic), but the food made up for it. Excellent pasta and really good deserts...More

We had few drinks and some food. The fish of the day was great - well presented and tasted even better. Staff is great too.

Staff pleasant but not overly attentive. Decor dated. My partner ordered the Eggs Bene with salmon which he said was fantastic. However I had the Big Breakfast and the hash browns were undercooked, bacon was severely burnt. An overall disappointment.

The worst experience I had in NZ. The waitress seemed too busy to serve us. Her "friendly" interactive talk was actually annoying and offensive to my family. I was forced to show some "positive" response to her. The food was average. I don't understand how...More
