This would be rated as my No 1 restaurant experience during my 12 day stay in North Island. The level of customer service was impressive eg warm greeting, prompt acknowledgement at all times, and checking in on our level of satisfaction during our time there. The menu was adequate as was the wine list. The flavours in the dinner were... More

Went there because this restaurant was well ranked in TripAdvisor and it was a good choice. Took the fish with vegetables and risotto...it was tasty and fresh. Staff is really nice. Not cheap but you are in New Zealand!!!

Arrived around 7.45 thinking we might be too late, to be welcomed in and immediately served with water at the table. Tried out some very generous starters that almost filled us up and then had a superb risotto, an excellent prawn pasta special and fish soup. Attentive service throughout, a really good local wine. Best thing? Food was cooked to... More

The restaurant doesn't just have 'Three doors up' as it also has 'Four doors up' which is a wonderfully comfortable lounge bar behind the restaurant. The service is excellent with a broad menu for all tastes and well worth a visit . I recommend it to everyone.

Fantastic place. Great atmosphere, Devine food and excellent service. Would highly recommend. Booking essential as the night we went at least 5 couples were turned away! It's that good!

What is it about restaurants around our hotel. The lunches at wineries have been excellent but the dinners in small local places leave a lot to be desired. I ordered lamb with mashed and vegetables. Got lamb with salad and quinoa. Server error but then my meal came in pieces. Cold lamb followed by hot mashed with vegetables after. All... More

So glad we got a reservation for this little place. On our night here we had a great waitress(praise for Jess) Nice to see so many gluten free options and fresh fish choices. I made a commit to the chef and he/she listened. Perfect grouper with risotto special for me and the lamb with mashed potatoes for husband. In four... More

I ate here in February 2017 as a group of four. The food was fresh, simple, tasty and expertly cooked. The restaurant was very hot and stuffy and so were the staff. It might do the staff well to remember not to judge a book by its cover you never really know who you are dealing with.

My wife and I shared the feta hot bowl for an appetizer and had the beef Thai salad for dinner. Both were very good. The wait staff was very attentive. I would highly recommend Three doors up

We lucked out and got one of the few unreserved tables at 6:30. It is not a big restaurant, so it wasn't long before they were turning people away who didn't have a reservation. So do yourself a favor and get a reservation. The breads and the scallops were particularly good. Service was timely and helpful. Close to the Crown... More
