This is one place I really want to go back to, enjoyed the dining so much. Small neighbourhood restaurant, high standard of food. No faults at all!

This is relaxed local dining in an inner Auckland suburb. When we arrived the restaurant was full of families having a Friday night dinner, so lots of kids (us included) which gave the restaurant a family friendly atmosphere. However around 7.30pm the families were slowly replaced by couples and a younger more sophisticated crowd and the atmosphere changed to more romantic chic. The service was good even when they were full the wait staff took the time to give individual attention to diners describing the food in detail and helping with menu selections.

The food was excellent! The menu is limited (which I always think is a good thing) and full of interesting options like calamari with roasted pineapple - delicious. The food was well cooked well presented and excellent quality (a hallmark of New Zealand dining).

Excellent dining experience!

Four of us had an amazing meal and a great experience at Twisted Tomato - no need to head to Ponsonby when there is such a fabulous restaurant right here in Pt Chevalier!

The owner of this small restaurant made us feel very at home even though we could only get a table outside. She kept checking on us to see if we were ok. Outstanding mains schnapper in a tasty broth and a very delicious mushroom rissoto!

This is a great little local eatery. Last nite two of us had dinner here. The menu is small, but with lots of choice. We nearly went for a lovely sounding vegetarian risotto that the table next to us had - and looked divine but chose fish, fresh and zingy mediterranean flavours, and duck, tender and warm with plum sauce, bok choy and wee pancakes.Delicious. But the deserts were simply sublime. The mango parfait, with lychees and sherbert was served with crunchy almond praline. It was everything you would want in a desert - fresh, smooth, crunchy, sweet, sour - just lovely.

The staff are just lovely, attentive and helpful in their recommendations.

After a swim at Pt Chev beach - a glass of wine and dinner here would be a great way to top a perfect day.
