This little hideaway in Helensville should not be a secret and is well worth the drive from anywhere. It has that lovely cosy feel and the gorgeous aroma of cooking when you walk in. We had great service and the food was superb. The only down side was that I couldn't eat everything on the menu that night as making a decision was incredibly challenging!!! We highly recommend this restaurant - you won't be disappointed.

We went there for our son's 20th birthday. It's spring and the sun's warming rays are still soaking into the window frontage of Porcini, it was delightful watching the sun set over the hills to the west.

The meals are wonderful and hugely generous, so much so that after an entrée and main we couldn't fit in dessert.

I love that they offer a gluten free option for everything, this being partly influenced by the chef/owner's wife being celiac.

All the seafood/fish is caught the same day and it shows.

Afterwards we wondered off for a dip in hot pools nearby, a perfect end to a perfect evening.

Been there 4-5 times now being local. Food is beautifully cooked. The twice cooked duck is the best you'll get in Auckland. A lot of effort is put into the presentation. The prices are up there a bit but the food is worth it. There are cheaper options too as they do gourmet pizzas. Highly recommended
