Looking for a special destination to celebrate our wedding anniversary, we were recommended Amano by friends, and what a perfect recommendation it was. Exceptional service, fantastic food and an amazing atmosphere. A must-do dining experience for the Auckland CBD.

It's a while since we ate at Amano but the food was as good as ever. The restaurant was very busy with plenty of customers turning up and going onto the waitlist so we were glad that we booked a table earlier in the day. Our monkfish starter took a while to prepare but it was worth the wait - beautiful tender fish with small tomatoes and fennel - just brilliant. We shared the lamb rump and that was also superb, very pink and tender and we had a side dish of green beans. Plenty of food for 2. All the staff were very friendly and there was a lovely buzz to the room. People were clearly enjoying the experience. What a great place and showcasing the best of New Zealand fresh produce. What more do you need!

The restaurant is housed in a beautifully renovated, large open plan room. My pasta , clam fettuccine in a garlic , tomato and white wine sauce was sublime, perfectly cooked and super tasty. Service was fast and friendly.

Simple - because it is one of the best restaurants in Auckland; about 150 people in this place all the time tells you that. You need to book 2 - 3 weeks in advance, although they only book out half the restaurant.
The ambiance is great, good atmosphere, the very high ceilings mean even when packed you can still hold a conversation without yelling! The service could not be faulted. The food - WOW - just great. The bluff oysters, fantastic. The chargrilled Kawhai fish, tasty as. The gelato dessert also good. The side dishes, potatoes, and the cauliflower can be both recommended, good size servings as were all dishes and great quality.. There were four of us, cost per head including some alcohol $70, which I consider reasonable. Also good bathrooms.

First day in New Zealand after traveling 24 hours from Texas. Happened upon Amano, and it was a GREAT experience. Service great, food great, nice wine selection, & everyone so friendly. Pasta dish we had was scampi based and excellent.
