This restaurant has promise, its good to see something new in the area, so much of aucklands waterfront is cursed with awfull restaurants so anything must be an improvement. But the reviews and my experience show an inconsistent level here.
We went here for a late lunch, the layout is odd, there was a fair bit of jostling to get seated.
The waitstaff did not explain the menu, or enquire if it was our first visit, just asked if we were ready to order, not good.
We placed our order after deciphering the menu.
Our drinks arrived, diet coke and a glass of the house rose, which was so pathetically small it should have been called a taste, this really gets my goat, big glass and no wine. Note to the owner: if you want to drive people away in droves, keep doing this, kiwis hate it with a passion!
I ordered the set menu, soup and pizza, pizza arrived first, then I was asked if I actually wanted soup, which was a no. So I switched the 2nd course to desert, which was very nice. Pizza was fantastic.
My wife was unhappy with her meal although I thought it Tasted fine, I think the wine thing did her in, after that she wanted to just get it over with.
Cost of the meal was pretty good at $47 for two, we will go again but might give them some time to settle in and get the shot pour off the wine bottles.
