We had a business partner from uk over and decided a nice spot of lunch here might be nice. Staff were friendly. Food was ok. But I had heard lots of great things so my expectations were set high but it was nothing special unfortunately.

Description
De Fontein is located in the heart of Mission Bay, just 8 minutes drive from Auckland's CBD, and is the perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of the city, especially from the sun drenched balcony overlooking the bay. We proudly serve authentic Belgian cuisine complimented by an extensive selection of fine Belgian beers & some of the best wines from NZ and Australia. We recommend you try our signature steaming mussel pots, or our famous mussel platters.
