Went in Feb with my in laws from the U.K. we had a lovely time and the food did not disappoint. Fantastic quality and for the guys- it didn't leave them hungry afterwards as the portions are very generous.
The staff worked hard and got the meals out in no time. We were very impressed with how busy the restaurant was on a wednesday night and the quality did not suffer. The in laws thought that their meals there were definitely the best that they'd had during there travelling around the North Island.
Thanks to the Team at Legends- keep up the good work!

Eating in an RSA was a revelation for us, not having these at home. This particular RSA is open to the public and has plenty of very good food choices with very friendly staff. Worth going!

Again we went to Legends for what we believe is the best food in town . Had the fetticine and the servings were huge , couldn't fit it all in , but did find room for a delicious crème brulee desert . All the staff are friendly and smiling and the blonde cashier is honey and is also a great artist .

Went to Legends because of the reviews on Trip Advisor - glad we went because the food and service were excellent - not the place to go for fine dining but for a group or a family on a budget this is highly recommended - my meal was so large I did not need anything from the salad bar or hot vegies selection - great value for money

The food is plenty and not bad and the service is friendly. However it would not qualify for a "fine dining" restaturant. I you are with kids or on a tight budget it is a good value. If you are after a fine dining experience go somewhere else. We had seafood and steak and both where poor cafeteria quality. The place is a veteran's club open to the public. The rating it has on trip advisor is definitely exagerated.
