Me and my partner arrived at this place because it was takapuna restaurant month in october. I was keen to try the bird on the waffle. It is normally priced at around $19 but it's on special at $15 this month. I love this dish. I thought the combination of the food was amazing. The presentation was also really good. Personally not a fan of the mascarpone though. The employees there were also super friendly. I just thought that the tables could be cleaner because it was sticky when I touched it. I did ask someone to wipe it down for us which they were happy to do. From this experience alone I am going to rate it 5 stars! If it was it's normal price though I might give it a four star just because I think it is slightly overpriced :'( Delicious though!
Fantastic atmosphere, great food and friendly and helpful staff. The location was great as you are tucked away from the busy street and in a lane of smells that are as inviting as the music and laugh being herd. The food is fresh and crisp and refreshing, I ordered chicken parmigiana with slaw & chips and it was fantastic. The chicken was cooked to a golden crispy perfection and the slaw with fennel is refreshing and a lovely tasting surprise. My partner ordered the un-bird burger with the portabello mushroom being a huge hit. Super tasting and filling making it a must try burger. Also, the staff are very friendly and helpful with letting you know what they like and what sort of tastes they have. One staff member in particular is Mandy. She is friendly, bubbly and more than happy to offer help if asked whats she has eaten and likes from the menu. Will eat here again and look forward to being in a great location with fantastic food.
I ordered the classic baguette and the filling was pretty nice, however the baguette itself was impossible to bite or cut with a knife. This may have been because they overbaked the baguette? Anyways it took me ages to finish as this baguette did not want to be eaten.
