Visited in March, during the week, after work Food: 5/5 Service: 5/5 Atmosphere: 5/5 Great food, reasonably priced, right on the waterfront on a beautiful warm Auckland afternoon. Vegetarian options are limited but they are offered. Easy to have a conversation. Decor tasteful and comfortable.

Lunch here with 5 colleagues and we sat 'outside' in the awning section. A great idea and probably works in summer, but not so good on a cold winter's day with the wind blowing down your back. We decided to trust the waitress to order...More

The vision of Marvel Grill is to provide the best New Zealand products, give attentive and knowledgeable service and to provide the best waterfront location for our customers.

We strive to locate and discover the story of all our produce providing only the best purveyors and traceable responsible products.

Our spotlight is on the animals from the land and sea and where it has been derived from. We showcase the farmers and fishermen that have passion and devotion to their animals as well as fine products offered around the country.

We have one of the best waterfront locations to enjoy the freshest seafood coming straight off the boats right in front of the restaurant.
