We visited Ortolana on our second night in Auckland and loved everything. We snapped up the last open table before the hosts had to start a waiting list and happily pulled the provided blankets around us as we pondered the menu. Several of us were feeling like we had been enjoying the consistently wonderful fries/chips that can be found all... More

Even though there was a short wait it was well worth it. Very accommodating for a preschooler. Service was efficient, atmosphere at Sunday lunch was casual. The fresh food was absolutely delicious !! Cant say enough about how good our food was. Brilliant ! Will be back on another Sunday

The brasserie style is approachable, friendly and welcoming with lovely staff and a delightful setting in Britomart. The lights in the trees, outdoor heaters and blankets am nice touch. The menu was compact but offered an interesting selection of dishes, styles and flavours. Value for money was good and atmosphere excellent. We were under a bit of time pressure as... More

Booked this restaurant from the UK. Was not disappointed when we eventually found it. Atmosphere was good and food very GREEN, in a good way. Try their lollypop dessert. Amazing.

Four for lunch. Definitely sit outside, nice and cool with shade. Wine selection is good, had a bottle of central otago rose, was recommended and really good. Our group mainly had the fish of the day and the steak. All good. Not overly genourous but the flavour was spot on. Cheese and a desert wine to finish. Choose something other... More

The food in this restaurant is great, the service even better! Definitely try the cray fish and the espresso chocolate cake! Everything comes with a smile! Close to the ferry terminal.

Lovely chilled out spot ideal for either eating or drinking. Friendly, capable service, first class food and drinks, with great value for money. And then there's their neighbouring patisserie... :-)

This was my second visit (a year after the first) and it was still fantastic. The food is delicious and morish. A good selection of wines and local NZ craft beers. It's a small oasis in the otherwise busy CBD.

A busy place on a Friday night but we managed a table without a reservation (lucky). Food selection offered variety and the portions were generous. Nice wine list too. The service was friendly and efficient and we did not feel rushed.

Have only ever had lunches there - but it is always a treat. I love the freshness and the taste of the dishes. It looks and tastes healthy as well (I assume it IS healthy!!) The service is good as well. I did find a hair in one dish - but I am less freaked by that than others ...... More
