Fodor's Review

Overlooking the water from the upper level of the restored Ferry Building, this seafood restaurant is an Auckland institution. It serves New Zealand seafood, which, depending on the season and availability, is likely to include tuna, salmon, snapper, pipi (a type of shellfish), and tuatua (a type of clam), on a menu that references a number of cuisine styles but steers clear of fads. You can also select crayfish direct from the tank. Meat-eaters can choose lamb, eye fillet (beef tenderloin), and perhaps cervena (farmed venison). On warm nights, reserve a table outside on the balcony, where you can watch the ferries come and go.
