We were recommended to dine here by a local New Zealander. Truly, it was one of the best meals we have ever eaten! My Scottish beef filet with portobello mushrooms in a wine sauce was done to perfection. Two family members thoroughly enjoyed the fish special which was a mild white fish. The pecorino mash potatoes were savored. My son's... More

Excellent food, great atmosphere and welcoming staff! It's Fashion Week so was welcomed with a goody bag each on our table. The Chambord Bramble is a must try!

We shared two starters of sourdough bread with an olive oil and pomegranate balsamic dip between four people. They were are great indication of the quality and presentation of the meal that was to follow.

We had two sets of international visitors in the same week, so we decided to take them to The Foodstore to showcase New Zealand's produce and from previous positive experience dining here. Dining on two separate occasions, it was a case of two different experiences. The first evening, the service was outstanding (and young girl from the Netherlands) and the... More

Just had the most amazing three course meal. Started with the oysters with wasabi cream. Then we both had the fillet steak with the option of the most incredible mushroom puree, goat cheese fritter and red wine jus. This was followed with the apple, rhubarb and walnut crumble and cheeseboard with warm fruit bread. The only negative being our waitress... More

Came here on a week night with family plus a (sleeping) baby in the group and the staff were very professional and accommodating. I've eaten here 3 times now and haven't had a bad experience. Nice wine list and wonderful flavours from the food. The Foodstore has a great ambience and décor, isn't pretentious and would be a place I... More

A group of 6 of us dropped in for lunch. The 1st aspect that impressed me was the professionalism of the wait staff. He would suggest wine to go with specific food items. If the serving was adequately large, he will caution us from "over-ordering". All our clarifications (from the sauce to the "non-English" sounding descriptions, etc), He would respond.The... More
