I dined at the Mudbrick Restaurant on Friday, it was so beautiful! My partner and I both started with cocktails outside which were absolutely delicious. We were then escorted inside to our table right up the front overlooking the harbour by our lovely server. We sat down and had a look at the wine list. Our server was so attentive and knowledgeable about the Mudbrick wines and we went with his recommendation to try the Mudbrick Reserve Chardonnay and it was absolutely to die for and went so well with our meals. I highly recommend the Taste of the Hauraki Gulf as an entree it is a dish inspired by the sea life that you look out to from the view at your table. I also got the fish of the day for a main and it was also full of flavour and had a good crunch/freshness ratio. Would recommend to anyone after a sensory experience as it tastes as good as it looks at Mudbrick!
If you don't know what to try, get the antipasto platter. So much goodness on this one dish - from sausage to prawns, salad to goats cheese, this was one impressive combination. Paired with a recommended wine, it was a very much enjoyed experience. We sat outside in a very casual setting, soaking up the sun while enjoying the views of Auckland and the surrounding vineyards. A deserved 5 star rating.
the food came out extremely slow, we waited over an hour. compared to the quantity and quality of the food, it was too expensive. I highly do not recommend.
