Fodor's Review

It's not really a café, and it's not strictly French—that aside, it is simply one of Auckland's best and most consistent restaurants. Simon Wright is an informed chef who creates inspired dishes based on the freshest available ingredients. The menu changes to suit the season, but when it's available you can't go wrong with lamb, however it's cooked, or roast duck. There is also an excellent degustation menu. The service is among the best in Auckland—efficient, friendly

without attitude. The wine list is comprehensive and includes hard-to-find vintages.
