“Scenic Auckland Hotel onsite cafe”
Reviewed 9 June 2013

We only had breakfast during our stay at the hotel - it was good enough but pretty standard hotel breakfast fare.

“Good location, edible food”
Reviewed 30 May 2013

We ate breakfast here as part of a GrabOne package. It was edible, the French Toast wasn't as delicious as expected and lacked flavor. The Eggs Benedict needed spinach or something to break up the greasy. unhealthiness of it all.

Great location at the scenic hotel . It was busy when we went down for a drink the previous night, and at breakfast time.

“Fluctuating quality and service”
Reviewed 19 April 2013 via mobile

We often go to MLC for lunch and find the food quality fluctuates depending on the number of diners. The last time we went the food took an absolute age to arrive, a notorious trait of MLC unfortunately, despite advising the staff member at time of ordering that we were on a timeline.

I ordered a Caesar salad which was nice until I discovered long black hairs under parts of the salad.... Yuck. The waiting staff were very nice when I advised them and gave me a free coffee... The hairs put me off eating anything else... It's such shame, this place is lovely inside, food serving just needs a revamp.
