“Wow, nice place”
Reviewed 16 November 2013

Place was nice, but the cafe was closed as early as 5 Pm which was a letdown. also the place was deserted and it may not be safe going there alone due to the loneliness. But overall, great place

“You can see the view change minute by minute.”
Reviewed 6 November 2013

Came to the Lookout on a cool and rainy day. The sun came out in bursts and this was reflected in an everchanging view. Quite stunning to watch. Unfortunately, we didn't eat at the cafe, but the aromas were heavenly.

Avoid at all costs the staff were unfriendly and the service was not great . The rooms were stuffy and when we complained we were told that there would be a extra charge to have us moved .

“Quiet and cosy”
Reviewed 20 October 2013

A bit different from Mt Wellington but still pretty nice
You get to see how the Harbour Master used to communicate in the old days and there's a lovely picnic spot around. There's also a nice cafe on the corner
Great spot with kids
